For a while, it looked as if the Russian Grand Prix might give us some clarity. Fans would get to see one or other of the title rivals pull ahead. However, that’s not how the race in Sochi panned out. So Max and Lewis are still locked in mortal combat for that Championship win and you can’t bet on the Turkish Grand Prix to settle things. Both drivers get very similar odds on the Turkish Grand Prix, at online betting sites in Turkey like Bet365. So will we just get a parade?
You have to feel sorry for Lando Norris. He gained a magnificent pole position in tricky conditions and then drove a great race. Well. A great race right up to the moment in the last few laps when the rain arrived. Gambling on surviving to the end on the wrong tires Lando spun out from the lead and had to settle for a paltry seventh. You could hear McLaren hearts break. Both luckily and sadly, McLaren can’t bet on the Turkish Grand Prix having those same conditions.
Perhaps worse you could hear fans groan. They expected to see something different, something exciting. Instead of which the title contenders finished one-and-two again. Sure, you can always bet on Max Verstappen to put on a good show in the wet. And yes, you can bet on Lewis Hamilton to take advantage of every mistake anyone else makes. However, those of us who like to bet on sports in Turkey, Russia or anywhere else on Bet365 were expecting something else.
Bet On The Turkish Grand Prix
- Anyone Else – 100/1+
- Carlos Sainz – 66/1
- Daniel Ricciardo – 66/1
- Charles Leclerc – 33/1
- Lando Norris – 33/1
- Sergio Perez – 16/1
- Valtteri Bottas – 16/1
- Lewis Hamilton – 6/5
- Max Verstappen – Evens
Max And Lewis Still Shoulder To Shoulder
Lando Norris will now have to wait for his first win. He doesn’t get very good Turkish Grand Prix odds. You’ll find the best prices he gets are 33/1 to win at bet365. That lags remarkably behind the odds on Lewis Hamilton, and indeed the odds on Max Verstappen. They both get very similar prices. Some online bookies in Turkey lean more towards Max, others Lewis. But if you’re going to bet on the Turkish Grand Prix don’t expect to find much better than Evens on either of them.
F1 Constructors Championship Odds
- Odds On Anyone Else – 500/1+
- On Red Bull – 15/8
- On Mercedes – 2/5
The Intercity Istanbul Park is another of those Mercedes-friendly circuits. So without the benefit of rain making things less predictable we should see Lewis thrive. You can bet on Mercedes taking the front row of the grid, unless Red Bull pull off a miracle. Then again, that could happen. Fans know the arbitrary decisions of the authorities could play a part at this track. And anyone Turkish gambling laws of common sense apply to F1 stewards’ decisions is insane.
Bet365 Has Your Bet On The Turkish Grand Prix 2021
Plus if you’re going to bet on the Turkish Grand Prix there is still the spectre of a crash between Max and Lewis again, like in Italy. Sure, you can bet on Red Bull telling Max to stay calm, but how well has that worked in the past? So whilst we might not see Lando Norris, Daniel Ricciardo or Charles Leclerc land pole, don’t count them out of at least a podium. Lewis and Max won’t back off. They should but you can always bet on F1 appearing entirely sensible until it isn’t.
F1 Drivers Championship Odds
- Anyone Else – 200/1+
- Lewis Hamilton – 6/5
- Max Verstappen – 4/6
Now some will say the odds on F1 have never been more exciting. They’ll point to the close racing and drama both on and off track. A bet on the Turkish Grand Prix, they’ll insist, is a real wager on motorsport, not on a foregone conclusion. Fans like this rejoice at Mercedes slipping from dominance. However, with everyone unsure, the odds at online sportsbook sites in Turkey like Bet365 are tricky, not attractive. You might as well flip a coin to choose which to back.
We take a look at why, after Russia, you can bet on the Turkish Grand Prix failing to settle the outstanding championship race.
