Any Austrian gambling laws of cause and effect are optional needs to think again. Logic enjoys a certain regularity. So, if you hold the same race twice, chances are you’ll get the same result twice. Which means you can bet on the Austrian Grand Prix repeating the result of the Styrian Grand Prix last weekend. That’s great news for Max Verstappen, who won, and Red Bull which now leads the championship. Just a shame not everyone is happy for them, right Lewis?
There once was a joke about sports coverage; “Those viewers who don’t wish to know next week’s Italian football results should look away now.” You can bet on Lewis Hamilton failing to find that funny this week. Having lost the Styrian Grand Prix to rival Max Verstappen he can bet on the Austrian Grand Prix going the same way. Same track, same cars, same drivers, same result. So Lewis Hamilton has to watch as his chances of another title whisk away ahead of him.
“We need an upgrade of some kind.” Said Hamilton in tones that might make Mercedes think of George Russell as the one they need. “They were way too fast today for us.” He continued as if Red Bull must be cheating. “I gave everything we could but they have obviously made some really good steps forward over the last few races.” He already seems to have bet on the Austrian Grand Prix being a carbon copy. So anyone who likes to bet on sports in Austria might wish to do the same.

Mercedes Leave Lewis Hamilton Out In The Cold
Not that the odds on Max Verstappen for that bet on the Austrian Grand Prix are very appealing right now. You can now get just 4/6 for a bet on Max Verstappen winning. Still the odds on Lewis Hamilton lagging behind, somewhere near 9/4 at Bet365, are a pleasure to behold. Mercedes have finally fallen off their perch. The odds on Red Bull winning the constructors championship shorter than theirs for the first time in too many years. Thus Lewis is unhappy.
F1 Drivers Championship Odds
- Lewis Hamilton – 6/4
- Max Verstappen – 4/9
His manifest sense of entitlement means he has to find someone else to blame. In this case he chose the team. That comment about upgrades was a little dig at Toto Wolff and Mercedes. Not that you should bet on Mercedes caving into pressure from Lewis as they might once have done. Mercedes have written off 2021. They’re saving their powder for 2022. So if you hop on over to the online betting sites in Austria like Bet365 you really ought bet on Red Bull. They’ll win.
Bet365 Has Your Bet On The Austrian Grand Prix
They have the best car. Lewis Hamilton loves to pretend he’s the greatest driver in history, but the reality is he just had the best car. George Russell proved that and it hurt so bad Mercedes had to sabotage him. Online bookies in Austria like Bet365 may have seen their odds on Mercedes slip but Mercedes play a long game. Lewis Hamilton on the other hand is running out of time. The odds on Lewis Hamilton winning that 8th title are drifting, and Mercedes don’t really care.
F1 Constructors Championship Odds
- Mercedes – 7/4
- Red Bull – 2/5
The odds on the Austrian Grand Prix at online sportsbook sites in Austria don’t worry Mercedes. Next year they expect everything changing and want to develop a car specifically for that new landscape. Lewis winning this year just isn’t a priority for them, and Lewis hates it. His passive-aggressive veneer falls away revealing a bitter man unable to lose with good grace. The years of Mercedes dominance are over, and you can bet on the Austrian Grand Prix to demonstrate it. Again.
We take a look at why your bet on the Austrian Grand Prix should feature Red Bull and not Mercedes as it looks to repeat the Styrian race last week.
