The FIA had to abandon its plans to overhaul F1 due to the exigencies of the ongoing situation. This means that the 2021 odds on Mercedes winning the Constructors Championship are ridiculously short. Online sportsbook sites in the UK like Bet365 give them a skant 1/4 to win again. This is not surprising. They are, after all, still head-and-shoulders above the rest of the field. However, this doesn’t mean it’ll be a dull year for those who like to bet on Formula 1.
You can bet on George Russell still feeling sick. He got his big chance only to have his own team scythe it away before his eyes. As you might imagine conspiracy theories are already running wild. It’s so uncharacteristic. Just ask anyone who regularly puts a bet on sports in the UAE and most particularly on F1. Mercedes don’t make mistakes like that. Not unless they want to. So was Russell robbed to save the blushes of Lewis Hamilton and the silver arrows? Let’s take a look.
The Formula One gambling odds didn’t give Romain Grosjean much chance in Bahrain. The circuit is a Mercedes wet-dream. However his dramatic crash will have far more effect on the sport than any number of Hamilton wins. His survival a relief to those who regularly hit up Bet365 and other online sportsbook sites in the UK to bet on F1. It turns out the sport is both far more dangerous and far more safe than anyone had really appreciated before. Who knew?
The Turkish Grand Prix sealed his seventh world title in a season that already saw him surpass the highest number of race wins ever. Lewis Hamilton is an F1 legend and he’s not dead yet. That’s why you can still avail yourself of UK gambling laws to bet on Lewis Hamilton winning the Bahrain Grand Prix at Bet365. Despite the rumors, Lewis isn’t going to retire. He wants that 100th GP win, that eighth title. Hamilton wants his place in history to be absolutely unassailable.
Valtteri Bottas has to out-score Hamilton by seven points this weekend to stop the Brit winning his 7th title. Given the Finn’s propensity to follow team orders, that seems massively unlikely. A Bottas victory is thus a waste of a bet on the Turkish Grand Prix. Fortunately, for those who wish to bet on sports in Turkey this weekend, Bet365 and F1 have other opportunities. Some of them far better and more acceptable than others. A bit like the race line up announced for 2021 really.
Lewis Hamilton made winning at San Marino look easy. His victory in the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix gave Mercedes the Constructors Championship for 2020. That’s the seventh time in a row. That’s why the 2021 F1 betting odds at online sportsbook sites in the UK like Bet365 are unlikely to sway much. Even if Lewis Hamilton muses aloud he might quit F1. He won’t. He’s just trolling. But is he preparing the shred the hopes of his opponents or fleece the pockets of Mercedes?
Winning 92 Formula One races is no mean feat. Lewis Hamilton has, frankly, made it look easy. A driver in a class of his own. So, he’s likely to continue to be the best bet on sports in Italy as the circus moves on to Imola. The former home of the San Marino GP will host the Emilia Romagna race. Which means you can bet on Lewis Hamilton to add to his tally of wins. The Mercedes will definitely have the legs to outpace the rest of the field around this slick circuit.
The odds on the Portuguese Grand Prix lean massively towards the pair of silver arrows. A bet on Mercedes to win, however, won’t earn you much. Hamilton gets 2/5 at online sportsbook sites in Portugal like Bet365. That price is discouragingly short. However, the bookies are giving a bet on Max Verstappen 9/2 and that, in the unpredictable 2020, is a tempting wager. Nearly as tempting as believing 2021 will be different, will be better, because Alonso is set to return to the sport.
Lewis Hamilton is probably a safe bet on the 2020 Portuguese Grand Prix. With 91 wins under his belt he’s likely to add another. The manifest Mercedes advantage almost guarantees he’ll find it a simple enough task. Online sportsbook sites in Portugal like Bet365 give him just 2/5 to win, well ahead of everyone else. Unfortunately, this does mean some think this mechanical superiority tarnishes his achievement somewhat. Hamilton, as you might imagine, disagrees.
There are dark clouds on the horizon for Formula One. Not only is the weather report for this weekend’s race at the Nurburgring rather wet, but Honda are leaving. Whilst the former will make your bet on the Eifel Grand Prix a tad tricky, it’ll be the latter worrying F1. Online betting sites in Germany like Bet365 tend to have issues accurately assessing a wet race. Which presents an opportunity. Honda departing, however, should give everyone in F1 that sinking feeling.
