RACE HISTORY

At the beginning of lap 49 in last year’s Azerbaijan Grand Prix, Bottas was leading the race by more than 1 second over Hamilton when he had to retire with a puncture.  Hamilton went on to win the race with the runner-up spot going to Kimi Räikkönen and Sergio Perez climbing onto the bottom step of the podium.

 

Suggested Bet: Hamilton win at 18/10

The defending race champion appears to be back to his best and given how strong Mercedes are looking and were here in 2018 the 18/10 appeals especially with the insurance of the Money Back Promo should he run 2nd – see banner below
