Lewis Hamilton won his 92nd Grand Prix last weekend and broke Formula 1’s all-time win record held by Michael Schumacher until now. This can give another boost to Hamilton who will be very difficult to beat again on the famous Imola track. But there are other Emilia Romagna Grand Prix special bets you can bet on, like the first driver to retire or make a pit stop on the race.
The 2020 Formula 1 season will continue in Italy this weekend with the first Emilia Romagna Grand Prix since 2006. Most drivers haven’t raced here yet so it will be interesting to see how they can handle the track. Plus in the first time of F1 history there will be no sessions on Friday, with only one Practice being available for the drivers on Saturday morning. These factors can make the race even more difficult for everyone, but the usual names are still favored to win here. Lewis Hamilton can get his 93rd victory while Valteri Bottas and Max Verstappen will try to get to the top of the podium. But you can make bets on other details at the race, let’s see them now.
Emilia Romagna Grand Prix special bets predict Safety Car on the race
Online sportsbooks in Italy think that the appearance of the Safety Car during this race is very likely. It has the odds of 1.40, while a virtual safety car’s odds is 2.20. Sadly the track in Imola has a tragic past as 3-time world champion Ayrton Senna lost his life here in 1994. Just a day after Roland Ratzenberger also died during the qualifying. After these tragic events the track was rebuilt to make it safer and slower in the critical points. But even a broken car can invoke the deployment of the safety car as we could already see it this season.
One thing that will definitely happen with everyone during the race is a pit stop. And you can bet now on the first driver to make a pit stop in the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix special bets. Red Bull driver Alexander Albon has the smallest odds with 10.00 on 22Bet. Probably he will have a different race tactics than his teammate, Max Verstappen which might help him to finish in a better position. Alfa Romeo driver Antonio Giovinazzi is also mentioned to come first with the odds of 11.00. While Lewis Hamilton can be the last to make his pit stop thanks to his brilliant driving techniques.
Can Ferrari do better on home soil?
Sebastian Vettel is having a rubbish season, he is only in 13th place in the drivers’ standing with his 18 points. Online gambling sites in Italy offer the smallest odds, 8.50 for him to be the first driver to retire in the race. It’s true that Ferrari have been also struggling all year, but actually Vettel finished all his races except two. His speed is another question, but the car seems to be quite reliable even under Vettel. Of course he can also get into some accidents but probably the German world champion will try to show his best the last time driving a Ferrari in Italy.
Haas driver Romain Grosjean has the same odds to retire first, but again, he finished almost every race this season. Unlike his teammate, Kevin Magnussen who had to retire the most times, on five occasions this season. None of them will compete for the team next season which is understandable after their poor results. But the car needs to improve as well after most of their retirements were due to technical failures. If you think that all cars can go all the way along this time, you can win 17 times of your bet with no driver to retire on the race.
