The F1 circus should be in the warmth of Portugal, instead, they’re heading to the Eifel region of Germany. So, there will be vastly lower track temperatures as they race around the Nürburgring. This should produce some exciting racing. Unfortunately, as those who bet on Lewis Hamilton last race discovered, that racing may not matter. Online betting sites in Germany like Bet365 once again offer low odds on him winning. The question is; will the stewards allow him to do so?
Think of Germany in October and the things that come to mind are beer festivals and skiing. So where better to have a Formula One race. Because if there’s one thing F1 really needs it’s low tire temperatures and alcohol. You can bet on Lewis Hamilton needing a drink after Sochi. At the Russian Grand Prix, he was handed two five-second stop-and-go penalties. For practicing starts in the wrong place. Punishment even Max Verstappen, hardly a Lewis fan, called “a bit harsh.”
Ruining his track position, that cost him victory. It also cost the stake of everyone who had bet on Lewis Hamilton to cruise to a win in Sochi. Whilst entirely correct to punish Lewis for his rule infractions, the punishment used was overt. They even put two points on his Super License. A decision the FIA had to reverse later on. So with stewards ready to pounce on every little error, should you bet on Lewis Hamilton to win at online sportsbook sites in Germany like Bet365?

Nürburgring May Prove Chilly For October F1 Race
Well yes. Yes, you should. You can bet on Lewis Hamilton to be letter-perfect at the Nürburgring. This is his habit when confronted by adverse circumstances and setbacks. It’s almost the theme of his career. Unfortunately, you can also bet on F1 authorities to stick their oar in. Their agenda is murky at best. The cynical already mutter theories as to why Hamilton faces harsher punishments than seems appropriate. Given what happened in Italy that’s twice in three races.
Still, one would have been too awfully uncharitable to read malice into these overly harsh penalties. Indeed, you can bet on Lewis Hamilton to skip lightly over the whole instance when asked. He’ll be focusing on the Eifel Grand Prix. He’ll need to. The region has had wet and wintery weather recently, so it could be a very exciting race indeed. The Nürburgring takes no prisoners even in the best of conditions. This could make it a fascinating bet on sports in Germany at Bet365.
Bet On Lewis Hamilton Keeping His Cool At Bet365
Naturally, you can bet on Mercedes all enjoying being back in Germany. But, not as much as you can bet on Ferrari loathing it. Their dire season continues. At this rate Binotto will wake up next to a horse’s head. Sebastian Vettel may have won here in times now gone, but his chances this time are slim. The weather the least of his problems. Max Verstappen on the other hand is probably praying for rain. He’ll bet on Lewis Hamilton having slightly less chance in the wet.

Indeed given how much their car loves twisting tracks like this a bet on Red Bull may be no bad thing. At 4/1 it’s well worth taking advantage of German gambling laws to snap up. After all, the stewards might give you an edge. For those unwilling to bet on Max Verstappen and his youthful exuberance, there’s always Bottas. He picked up a win in Sochi, so why not hit up Bet365 and bet on Valtteri Bottas at 7/2? If Lewis is drawing all the steward’s flak, he’s the man to benefit most.
We take a look at why a bet on Lewis Hamilton to win the Eifel Grand Prix could be a great sporting wager if he doesn’t draw the ire of the stewards again.
