Red Bull may have the faster car, but Mercedes have the better driver. You can bet on Lewis Hamilton continually hinting at this for the rest of the year. However, after their win in the first race of the year, Mercedes know they have a fight on their hands. The Bahrain GP far was closer than many had predicted. So, now over on Bet365 and other online betting sites in Italy Max Verstappen gets parity in the F1 odds. But just how long will this apparent equality really last?
Very recently the three finalists for the 2021 World Urban Car of the Year have been selected. They are Toyota Yaris, Honda e, and Honda Jazz. We give our thoughts on all three cars in an attempt to help you make a smart bet on the World Urban Car of 2021.
We didn’t bet on the Bahrain Grand Prix ending so close. Plenty of us predicted the result. Mercedes still have the edge. Red Bull may have caught up in terms of speed but that doesn’t automatically equate to winning races. Online betting sites in Italy are still offering better odds on Lewis Hamilton than on Max Verstappen. Of course, many of those tempted to bet on the 2021 Emilia Romagna Grand Prix, the next race up, will want to back Ferrari, but that’s risky.
Those who regularly bet on sports in the UK will recognize the F1 hype machine, but 2021 could be different. Red Bull may really challenge Mercedes this time round. We all saw Red Bull display remarkable reliability in testing whilst Mercedes struggled. That means a bet on Max Verstappen to win the Bahrain Grand Prix garners lower odds than one on Hamilton. At least right now. You can expect Bet365 and co to shift their prices fast after the first practice session.
Yes, they’re back. The posh boys in fireproof romper-suits and over engineered go-karts have returned once again. We got a glimpse of what’s to come as the F1 teams met up in Bahrain for some pre-season testing. Of course, all eyes are on Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes, the dominant force these last seven years. Mercedes didn’t have fun in Bahrain. Not that it changed anything. Online sportsbook sites in the UK like Bet365 still have them as favorites in the 2021 Formula One odds.
Whilst a bet on Max Verstappen is a good idea (he has to win sometime, doesn’t he?) Most people expect Mercedes to continue their winning ways this F1 season. They have the best car and, arguably, the best driver. That’s why online betting sites in the UK like Bet365 give them such low odds. However, the ever-competitive Lewis Hamilton only signed a one-year deal. So does this mean he knows something the rest of us don’t? Mercedes would like you to think so.
So Online sportsbook sites in the UK are already offering odds on Formula One in 2021. Naturally, the “silver arrows” from Mercedes are favorites. However, as the sport continues to look forward, some teams are making big changes. Some are adjusting themselves for a higher profile regardless of results whilst others are still chasing the dream of victory. Of course, you might not want to bet on Alpine lasting long, or indeed, Red Bull coming up with a winning engine just yet.
Those who regularly take advantage of UK gambling laws to bet on motorsport at Bet365 will have noticed. The World Champion is back. For a while the odds on Lewis Hamilton racing at all were touch-and-go. Mercedes didn’t want to pay as much as he was asking for, and there were rumors of some stringent conditions. Naturally Toto Wolff has dismissed these stories, but fans won’t believe him any more than they think changing qualifying will make F1 more interesting.
They have delayed the start of the season but not reduced the length. Teams face a long haul through all twenty-three races and the odds on F1 in 2021 just got a nudge. Sure, Mercedes are still favorites at online sportsbook sites in the UK like Bet365. That was never in doubt. But driver changes and the aero handicap could well signpost changes to come. Although, it is perhaps the change of CEO in the higher echelons of the owners that will mean more long term.
