Azerbaijan Grand Prix, Preview & Prediction

The Baku City Circuit plays host to the Azerbaijan Formula 1 Grand Prix on Sunday the 25th June.

Lewis Hamilton celebrated his 6th Canadian Grand Prix victory and his 3rd win of the season for Mercedes two weeks ago when he took top step on the podium.  His teammate Valtteri Bottas was in 2nd place 22 seconds behind Hamilton with Daniel Ricciardo completing the top 3.  Championship leader Vettel managed to work his way through the field to finish 4th.

In the Championship Standings Hamilton has eaten into Vettel’s lead which has now decreased to 12 points from 25 and this has seen Vettel drift from 13/20 to 9/10 with Hamilton clipped from 13/10 to 9/10 joint favourite.

Suggested Bet: Sebastian Vettel win at 7/4

Hamilton was dominant in Canada but Vettel didn’t have things go his way and he actually put in an excellent drive to finish 4th. At around twice the price of Hamilton I feel Vettel is the value bet especially given his 2nd place here in 2016 in a car that was not going as well.
