2018 Formula 1: German Grand Prix Betting Tips

July 19th 2018, 12:30pm, By: andyrosos

Sebastian Vettel was fantastic in the British GP a few weeks ago, beating out Lewis Hamilton to take first place and take a commanding lead in the drivers championship. We missed out on the winning tip as we took Lewis Hamilton but did back Kimi Raikkonen to finish on the podium at good odds of $2.75.

The tour rolls on to the Hockenheim this weekend for the annual German Grand Prix. Vettel will be looking to make it two wins in a row with his home race on the weekend. We preview the big race and give our betting tips for the 2018 German Grand Prix below.

2018 German Grand Prix Betting Tips

The Hockenheimring will play host to the German Grand Prix for the 36th time this year and Lewis Hamilton will be back to defend his 2016 title after the race was not held last season. The Hockenheimring is described as a fast track that has interesting corners in which different lines can be taken in attempts to overtake. Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo said that it his one of his favourite tracks for overtaking and one that he has always enjoyed.

The German Grand Prix has only been held every second year since Nico Roseberg took out the 2014 event, and only Hamilton, Sebastian Vettel and Fernando Alonso will lineup this weekend after having previously won the race. Interestingly, it is one of Alonso’s most successful races, having won the Grand Prix on three separate occasions dating back to 2005. Only six drivers in total have won the GP since 2004 as Michael Schumacher had a stranglehold on his home event for a long period.

Vettel is the in-form driver in the Formula 1 tour at the moment. Mechanical problems at Mercedes saw Hamilton finish 5th in the Canadian Grand Prix back in June before more issues forced him to retire in the Austrian Grand Prix earlier this month.

Hard to look past Vettel with the way that the Ferraris are performing at the moment. Not only has he been in top form but his teammate, Raikkonen, has been on fire. Both drivers have finished on the podium in three out of the last four races and we think Vettel should salute in his home tournament this weekend.

From the year 2008 until 2014, the German Grand Prix was held at both the Hockenheimring and the Nurburgring in alternating years. Interstingly, all three of Fernando Alonso’s German GP victories came at the Hockenheimring and he has described the track as one of his favourites to race on.

Apart from two forced retirements, Alonso has only finished outside the top 10 on one occasion this year and has one top five finish to his name, coming in the first event in Australia. We think he can push into the top six here.
