Formula 1 2019 – betting Tips & Predictions

Formula 1 has been dominated by the ‘Mercedes’ show for the last few seasons and if the sports betting sites have it right, that will not alter in 2019 and we tend to agree.

Lewis Hamilton overcame a close tussle with Sebastian Vettel in the 2018 season and eventually made history by winning his fifth Drivers’ Championship, and is now only a 19 race wins behind record holder Michael Schumacher. Hamilton shows no signs of backing off and is now the bookies favourite to win the title for a sixth time in 2018.

The Mercedes star is the $1.53 favourite with Betstar or $1.61 favourite with Beteasy and will be difficult to beat for the title.

Sebastian Vettel is considered Hamilton’s main rival for the Drivers’ Championship. The four-time world champion endured ongoing reliability issues with his Ferrari during the second half the 2018 season. His title quest was derailed, but the final points gap between the two men was not vast. Vettel is quoted at $4.50 with Betstar or $5,00 with Beteasy to end his wait for a fifth world championship this coming season.

Red Bull Racing’s pairing of Max Verstappen and Pierre Gasly are quoted at $5.00 and $26.00 with BetEasy respectively after showing enormous promise in 2017. Hamilton’s team-mate, Valtteri Bottas, is a $17.00 chance with Betstar after a disappointing season with Mercedes. Despite being in a technically superior and overall faster car than the rest of the field, Bottas finished a disappointing fourth in the standings.

Daniel Ricciardo is great value as a  $51.00 shot with BetStar in his new Renault vehicle. Newcomer Charles Leclerc, Vettel’s teammate in the other Ferrari, is at the very short odds of $8.50 with BetStar, a clear indication that Ferrari will have a much more competitive vehicle in 2019.

Daniel Ricciardo – Australia’s Great Formula 1 Hope

f1 betting

Daniel Ricciardo carries the hopes of a nation in becoming the first Australian since Alan Jones in 1980 to win a Formula 1 world championship. He has the skill, he has the winning smile and even has a grandstand named after him at the Melbourne Albert Park Circuit where he will begin the 2018 Formula One World Championship season.

Fervently followed in his Aussie homeland, the young Western-Australian has achieved a larrakin-cult-hero-status, inspired by his ‘shoey’ podium celebrity champagne toasts.

The smiling Australian’s signature-celebration involves the pouring of podium champagne into a sweaty racing boot, which an unlucky victim is then urged to drink from in front of a global audience.

Ricciardo has convinced people ranging from former F1 driver Mark Webber to MotoGP legend Valentino Rossi, and international actors Gerard Butler and Patrick Stewart to join him in the act.

More than just a cult hero, he has serious diving talent and if the Renault car can compete with Mercedes team this year, then Ricciardo becomes a genuine long-shot title tip at the fantastic odds of $51.00 with BetStar
