Odds on Mercedes

Just when you bet on Lewis Hamilton to leave and race electric Land Rovers or whatever, Toto drops a hint or two. Another contract? Two more years? You can bet on Max Verstappen not enjoying that prospect. Online sportsbook sites in the UK like Bet365 have already dropped him back to just 3/1 to win the season. Lewis and Mercedes outclassed Red Bull in Spain. A trend they could well face for a few more years if the rumors are true. But are they? Or are Mercedes just winging it? ... read more

The odds on Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen for the Portuguese Grand Prix will please F1 fans. They’re dead level at most online betting sites in Portugal like Bet365. That means we’re likely to see quite the race on Sunday. With luck, this should distract fans from the new ideas that Liberty Media and the FIA want to try. But if you’re going to bet on F1 this weekend, just who has the edge? Should you really bet on Red Bull or take up the bookies’ odds on Mercedes? ... read more

A bet on Max Verstappen to win the Emilia Grand Prix is no bad wager. The odds on Red Bull now hover ahead of their Mercedes rivals. However, on the evidence of Bahrain, the seachange in F1 they promised hasn’t arrived. Putting a bet on Lewis Hamilton is still just as valid as it was last year. So we have a close season ahead. Great stuff. Just a shame, then, that your bet on F1, at online sportsbook sites in Italy like Bet365, remains under the influence of external influences. ... read more

Those who regularly bet on sports in the UK will recognize the F1 hype machine, but 2021 could be different. Red Bull may really challenge Mercedes this time round. We all saw Red Bull display remarkable reliability in testing whilst Mercedes struggled. That means a bet on Max Verstappen to win the Bahrain Grand Prix garners lower odds than one on Hamilton. At least right now. You can expect Bet365 and co to shift their prices fast after the first practice session. ... read more

He’s won seven F1 World Championships and the Queen gave him a knighthood. He’s perhaps the most successful driver in the sport’s history. However, Lewis Hamilton still doesn’t have a contract for this season. Mercedes simply don’t wish to pay him what he is asking. He’s asking for a lot. So, there is just a chance Lewis won’t race for the Silver Arrows this year. That’s why a bet on George Russell at online betting sites in the UK like Bet365 instead is an interesting bet. ... read more

Max Verstappen won the last race in 2020. Not that it helped. Sadly, you can always bet on the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix to be a dull end to the year. A poor circuit for modern cars. However, that could change as the sport revamps itself for next season. There will be new cars, new rules, new regulations. It’ll really shake things up for those who like to bet on sports in the UK and elsewhere. But glance at the 2021 F1 Drivers Championship odds and spotting the difference is tricky. ... read more

The odds on the Portuguese Grand Prix lean massively towards the pair of silver arrows. A bet on Mercedes to win, however, won’t earn you much. Hamilton gets 2/5 at online sportsbook sites in Portugal like Bet365. That price is discouragingly short. However, the bookies are giving a bet on Max Verstappen 9/2 and that, in the unpredictable 2020, is a tempting wager. Nearly as tempting as believing 2021 will be different, will be better, because Alonso is set to return to the sport. ... read more

Lewis Hamilton is probably a safe bet on the 2020 Portuguese Grand Prix. With 91 wins under his belt he’s likely to add another. The manifest Mercedes advantage almost guarantees he’ll find it a simple enough task. Online sportsbook sites in Portugal like Bet365 give him just 2/5 to win, well ahead of everyone else. Unfortunately, this does mean some think this mechanical superiority tarnishes his achievement somewhat. Hamilton, as you might imagine, disagrees.  ... read more

There are dark clouds on the horizon for Formula One. Not only is the weather report for this weekend’s race at the Nurburgring rather wet, but Honda are leaving. Whilst the former will make your bet on the Eifel Grand Prix a tad tricky, it’ll be the latter worrying F1. Online betting sites in Germany like Bet365 tend to have issues accurately assessing a wet race. Which presents an opportunity. Honda departing, however, should give everyone in F1 that sinking feeling.  ... read more

The Styrian Grand Prix, which wasn’t, alas, a street race around Damascus, was a pretty dull affair. However, in the dying moments the young driver at McLaren, caught some drivers napping. His storming into fifth place at the finish leaves him third in the drivers championship. This means the 2020 Hungarian Grand Prix odds on Lando Norris could well be worth a look. We check out what the online sportsbook sites in Hungary are offering going into the next race weekend. ... read more
