Another big winner at odds of $4.00 in the Formula 1 two weeks ago makes it five winners in the last six Grand Prix’s and we’ll look to continue our hot form as the tour heads to the U.K. this weekend for the annual British Grand Prix!
Check out our full preview and betting tips for the British Grand Prix below.
We tipped Max Verstappen to win the Austrian Grand Prix two weeks ago at large odds of $4.00 and the Dutchman did not disappoint, going on to win the race in dominant fashion after claiming pole position. The win for Verstappen marked the first time in the 2019 Formula 1 season that a Mercedes has not finished on the top step of the podium and helped move the Red Bull rider into third place on the drivers’ standings.
Lewis Hamilton came fifth in the race, his first time finishing outside of the top two throughout the first nine races of the year, however, his stranglehold on the drivers’ championship is still well and truly prevalent. He currently sits 31 points clear of his Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas in 2nd place, while Verstappen, Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc round out the top five.
Silverstone Circuit in Northamptonshire, England, has been the sole host of the British Grand Prix since the 1987 season. Formerly, it shared hosting responsibility with Brands Hatch in West Kingsdown and Aintree in Merseyside.
The track houses a number of extremely high speed, sweeping corners and fast straights. It consistently ranks in the top five on top averages speeds and offers a great contrast to some of the more street style circuits that the F1 has been touring through over the past few weeks.
The nature of the track should lend a hand to the Mercedes engines, who are faster over the straights and sweeping corners than their counterparts, so look for the likes of Hamilton and Bottas to be more competitive than they were in Austria.
Lewis Hamilton is a four time winner at Silverstone, winning four straight races from the 2014 season through to the 2017 season. He was knocked off his perch last season when Sebastian Vettel claimed an upset victory, with Hamilton finishing in second place. After losing that race, Hamilton went on to win the next four in a row and six of the remaining eight races in the season to blitz the competition in the driver standings.
We think Hamilton will be extremely tough to beat on his home circuit, especially with how dominant the Mercedes vehicles have been this year. There’s not much meat on the bone at just $1.75, but we cant see this one going another way.
If you’re after a bit more of a dark horse for the British Grand Prix this season, look no further than the in-form driver, Max Verstappen. Since moving to Red Bull mid-way through the 2016 season, Verstappen has had some great results at Silverstone, finishing 2nd in his Red Bull debut there followed up by a fourth place finish in 2017. Red Bull also have some decent pedigree at Silverstone, with Aussie Daniel Riccardo finishing in the top five in four of his five British GP starts for Red Bull.
