Singapore Grand Prix Betting Tips & Preview – Sunday 17th September 2017

Singapore Grand Prix Track Guide

Lewis Hamilton’s win at the Italian GP lifted him top of the standings, can he add to that here? With a three point lead over Sebastian Vettel, we’re getting the close rivalry that F1 really needed this season. Having threatened to run away with things when Nico Rosberg retired, Hamilton and Mercedes are under pressure this time around.

Mercedes are under even more pressure heading to Singapore, given their recent record at this circuit isn’t the best. This is somewhere that Vettel and his car should thrive, so could that see him take the lead straight back? With the title race starting to heat up, Hamilton and his team can’t afford to slip up right now. However, with problems at this circuit in the past, we think this might be a chance for Ferrari to steal a march with a strong weekend.

Tips and Predictions

While Hamilton has won three of his last four races, he’s drifted out to second favourite this weekend. That’s an odd shift for the market, although recent races here probably point to a win for Vettel. The German has won four of his last six visits to this circuit, and it’s somewhere that Mercedes tend to struggle at. They’ve dominated F1 for the past few years without really cracking this race, while Vettel has excelled here despite being held back. Ferrari’s years in the doldrums saw them struggle to challenge in the Constructors Championship, but now they’re pushing on two fronts after some major improvements.

Given Vettel’s record, he has to be confident here. Having seen Hamilton turn the tide and take top spot, the German needs something to go his way. His advantage at this track could do the trick, and we’re expecting him to take maximum points from Singapore this week. When you look at his record when it comes to this race, it’s hard to argue with his price of 11/8 with Bet365. You could even make the case that Betfair’s 2/7 for him to place this weekend is very backable, and a little too big.

Other Bets and Odds

It isn’t just Vettel who benefits from this circuit, Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo is another who tends to contend here. He’s recorded two second placed finishes on the bounce at this race, which should put him in contention to challenge this weekend. Having finished inside the top three for three consecutive seasons in Singapore, the Red Bull driver should make a push for the podium. Having finished third and fourth in his last two, this circuit should see the Australian kick on. He’s 6/5 with Betfair to take a top three finish, which we see as value.
