Formula 1 betting – Monaco Grand Prix

Formula_1_MonacoAs always the Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix offers some great betting opportunities. The track layout does not offer many overtaking possibilities and the first drivers out of grid usually do well here. This means a lot will be decided today by the constructors’ ability to time their pit-stops and their overall fuel strategy for the race in Monaco.

Mark Webber

Mark Webber claimed back to back pole position as he won the qualification for the second time in a week, but he was closely followed by Robert Kubica in second. Actually the Red Bull driver only claimed his pole position by a great final lab yesterday, which hopefully could give us an exciting race today.

In third position after the qualification was Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel, who was closely followed by Ferrari’s Felipe Massa and McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton. Starting sixth in today’s race is Nico Rosberg, while Michael Schumacher and Jenson Button are right behind him.

The odds for the Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix are as follows for the top 10:

1. Mark Webber – 1.73 – William Hill Sport
2. Robert Kubica – 5.50 – 888 Sport
3. Sebastian Vettel – 5.50 888 Sport
4. Felipe Massa – 13.00 Victor Chandler
5. Lewis Hamilton – 15.00 888 Sport
6. Nico Rosberg – 34.00 Victor Chandler
7. Michael Schumacher – 41.00 Victor Chandler
8. Jenson Button – 51.00 Victor Chandler
9. Rubens Barrichello – 151.00 William Hill Sport
10. Vitantonio Liuzzi – 251.00 888 Sport

With his pole position and win last week in the Spanish Grand Prix, Mark Webber is the overwhelming favorite for this race and it is hard to see anybody overtake him on this track. Both Webber and his teammate Vettel dominated last weeks Grand Prix in Spain and we could likely see a copy again today.

Hard betting against Red Bull

The few overtaking opportunities and the good performances so far from the Red Bull constructor team makes it difficult to bet against them. Our betting pick will be Mark Webber today as he will not be stopped unless the car brakes down. This said, his teammate Sebastian Vettel could be an interesting second choice today, but a lot will depend on the first 10 seconds out of the grid today. Whatever choice you make, it is important to bear in mind the constructors’ ability to change this race for good or bad by their strategy, which will likely determine the outcome today.
