2018 Australian Formula 1 Grand Prix – Preview, Predictions & Tips

Formula One Grand Prix 2018

by Ken Edwards, 18 March 2018

The Australian Grand Prix on Melbourne’s Albert Park street circuit marks the beginning of the 2018 Formula One World Drivers Championship.

The most exciting aspect of the coming season is the level of competitiveness at the front of the pack. After years of Mercedes dominance, the reigning world champions appear to have serious rivals in Ferrari and Red Bull. Pre-season testing at the Circuit de Catalunya in Barcelona is only a rough guide at best, however, the times being set by Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen show that Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes will have a battle on their hands this season.

For the first time in several seasons Formula One could be close and Aussies will love the opportunity to place a bet on their local hope in their home Grand Prix, Red Bull champ, Daniel Ricciardo, a $7.50 chance to win the Australian Grand Prix with Betstar.

Ricciardo is a very good young driver and excellent value bet for a podium finish, however, look for Lewis Hamilton to confirm his status as the leading driver in the field.
