Formula One 2017: A Choice of Three Drivers at Enhanced Odds with 888Sport

Formula 1 Start

After a long wait, F1 racing is back this weekend with the traditional curtain raiser, the Australian Grand Prix. In the close season, we’ve witnessed the shock retirement of reigning champion Nico Rosberg, while there have been a number of driver changes across the teams.

As we build up to this weekend however, there is a familiar name at the top of the betting markets. Lewis Hamilton leads the way at a general price of around 8/15 but if you don’t already hold an account with 888Sport, you can lift that to 7/1.

In fact, the 2015 Drivers Champion is just one of three options under this offer.

Lewis Hamilton at 7/1

888Sport themselves are quoting 6/11 in their standard markets for a Hamilton win while the best price we can find currently stands at 4/7 with Winner Sports. The English driver has looked good in practise and with Rosberg retired, he could dominate again if Mercedes are to hold off the challenge of a rejuvenated Ferrari team.

With three world championships and 53 GP wins behind him, Hamilton will be the popular choice for Formula One bettors this weekend.

Valtteri Bottas at 25/1

If you don’t feel confident about Lewis Hamilton this weekend, Finnish driver Bottas is the third favourite and available at a best of 8/1 with William Hill across the standard markets. He has nine podium finishes in his career and has yet to win a race but as Hamilton’s new partner at Mercedes, that should change in the coming season.

Under this new customer offer with 888Sport, those odds are enhanced to 25/1.

Max Verstappen at 33/1

Verstappen won the Spanish Grand Prix in 2016 and while he has yet to add to that success, he is just 19 and clearly has a big future ahead of him. For the forthcoming season, he will be with Red Bull racing and is rated in the standard markets at best odds of 16/1 with 10Bet to win in Australia this weekend.

With 888Sport however, you can get the Dutch driver at 33/1. All of those are tempting figures so what should you do if you want to claim them?
