Formula 1, United States Grand Prix 2017, Betting Preview


The Circuit of the Americas, in Austin, Texas plays host to the United States Formula 1 Grand Prix on Sunday the 22nd October.


Lewis Hamilton held off a late challenge from Max Verstappen for his 8th win of the season at the Japanese MotoGP a fortnight ago.  Team-mates Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo gave their team its 2nd straight double podium when they finished 2nd and 3rd respectively.  Sebastian Vettel had to retire with a spark plug issue and Hamilton has now extended his lead over Vettel in the Drivers’ Championship by 59 points and he is an unbackable 1/100 to capture another title.

Suggested Bet: Lewis Hamilton win at 9/10

Hamilton is on fire at the moment and given his record at this track his price looks fair enough. Throw in the World Sports Betting “Money Back” Promo for 2nd place – see details on the banner below – and I am happy to steam into him at slight shy of even money.
