Prices correct at time of posting but will change in the lead up to the race and there are a number of other markets on offer.


In 2016 the now retired Nico Rosberg won the race from pole position with his teammate, Lewis Hamilton taking 2nd and Kimi Raikkonen completing the podium.


Suggested Bet: Lewis Hamilton win at 9/10

Hamilton not only chased home Rosberg last year but he also won this race in 2015 and 2014 so clearly enjoys the track. The race has only been raced 3 times and the track is one of the fastest on the calendar with plenty of overtaking opportunities. Mercedes have dominated in the last 3 years and while Ferrari will surely push them this week I think Hamilton can get his 2nd win of the season to at least draw level with his rival at the top of the standings. This bet also comes with a “Money Back” guarantee for 2nd place – see banner below.
