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.
“We don’t have the fastest car at the moment.” Lewis Hamilton admitted, “that’s all good for me.” He allows. “I don’t mind having to pull out extra in order to make the difference.” Which is fair enough. He did win the season opener, but the margin wasn’t huge, so the season ahead begins to look promising. Red Bull may actually challenge for the titles. Max Verstappen is certainly a good bet on the 2021 Emilia Romagna Grand Prix. The bookies have him as favorite.
Well. Joint favorite. Those thinking about taking advantage of Italian gambling laws will now find both Max and Lewis share the same price. Equal odds on the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix. At 5/4 at Bet365 each is a worthy on-the-nose wager. This is far more than can be said for the Ferraris. They will likely face the indignity of looking foolish on their home circuit. No one putting a bet on the 2021 Emilia Romagna Grand Prix will bet on Charles Leclerc at 40/1. Are they? No.
A Bet On Ferrari Might Be Sheer Folly At Imola
Ferrari’s humiliation however is likely to take a back seat. F1 fans have other concerns. Concerns shared by the teams. Those placing a bet on the 2021 Emilia Romagna Grand Prix will not have been happy to see the track limit drama in Bahrain. Variable application of the rules is the bane of Formula One. So you can bet on F1 teams up and down the paddock to want some clarification. These decisions can have an effect on race results, championship points and season title wins.

“We do need to just have a consistent situation.” Said Christian Horner, you could bet on Red Bull not being happy about it all. “It should be black and white, it should not be shades of grey.” Those who regularly bet on sports in Italy might be surprised to find that Toto Wolff of Mercedes actually agreed with him on the shifting rules expressing similar sentiments. “They need to be clear, they need to be sacred and not a Shakespeare novel that’s open to interpretation.”
Bet On The 2021 Emilia Romagna Grand Prix At Bet365
Thus those who bet on the 2021 Emilia Romagna Grand Prix may worry the stewards could have an effect on their wagers. There’s no point putting a bet on Max Verstappen, or even a bet on Lewis Hamilton, if the stewards can arbitrarily apply penalties to them. Unfortunately the rules of F1 combined with the self-importance of those overseeing races combine to produce this drama. The odds on Max Verstappen incurring penalities seemingly slightly lower than those on others.

Perhaps this is just because he pushes more to the limits, perhaps there are other reasons. However, with so much at stake you can bet on Mercedes pushing for far more clarity and less fine print. Not that those with a bet on the 2021 Emilia Romagna Grand Prix at online sportsbook sites in Italy should expect a drama free race. It’ll take time for F1 to get to grips with the concept of simplicity and clarity. Perhaps nearly as long as it will take Max to grow a proper moustache.
We take a look at why a bet on the 2021 Emilia Romagna Grand Prix may hinge more on the stewards than the drivers.
