Winning 92 Formula One races is no mean feat. Lewis Hamilton has, frankly, made it look easy. A driver in a class of his own. So, he’s likely to continue to be the best bet on sports in Italy as the circus moves on to Imola. The former home of the San Marino GP will host the Emilia Romagna race. Which means you can bet on Lewis Hamilton to add to his tally of wins. The Mercedes will definitely have the legs to outpace the rest of the field around this slick circuit.
“Today is beyond my wildest dreams.” Admitted Lewis Hamilton after beating Michael Schumacher’s record. Racking up his 92nd win in Portugal, Lewis became the most successful F1 driver in history. He’s a worthy holder of the accolade. His skills are manifest, his talent obvious, his success well deserved. However, he’s not finished yet, so a lot of people are starting to bet on Lewis Hamilton breaking the 100 win barrier next season. Perhaps topping 120 or more before retirement.
This will be an astonishing legacy. One you can bet on Mercedes to wish to keep to themselves. They’re quick to dismiss any rumors of Hamilton leaving the team. Of course, you can also bet on Ferrari and Red Bull to want Lewis anyway. They can afford him. Will he be swayed? Probably not. I’d not bet on Lewis Hamilton leaving Mercedes. The Merc is still the fastest car. The odds on Valtteri Bottas at online sportsbook sites in Italy like Bet365 demonstrate that much.

Hamilton Breaks Schumacher’s Record
Still, you can bet on F1 to continue to spew speculation on the future of this amazing driver. The plaudits have poured in from far-and-wide. There are more congratulation and honors to come. For instance, you can bet on Lewis Hamilton to win the BBC Sports Personality of the Year. A big deal in the UK. He’s currently 10/11 favorite. Lucky him. There is also a developing clamor for HRH the Queen to give Lewis Hamilton a knighthood. Another very big deal in the UK.
The palace is likely to bend to the pressure of the public and press. This despite Lewis having an interesting tax history. So you can bet on Lewis Hamilton being Sir Hamilton at some point soon, but probably not before his next F1 victory. Lewis has never won an F1 race at Imola. The last San Marino GP was in 2006. So, you can guarantee he’ll be hungry to do so now. Indeed, at online betting sites in Italy like Bet365, he gets a scant 2/5 to win the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix.
Bet On Lewis Hamilton To Win At Imola
The same bookies give Valtteri Bottas 7/2 but the main threat to Lewis will be from Max Verstappen at 9/2. A bet on Max Verstappen is getting more attractive as time goes on. Sure you can bet on Red Bull to be a little behind Mercedes in terms of power, but if the silver arrows make a mistake, Max pounces. That means on any given day he’s got a great chance of winning. No team is perfect in every race. Something you can bet on Lewis Hamilton to know only too well.
