Abu Dhabi Grand Prix predictions:

  • Daniel Ricciardo to set the ‘Fastest Lap’ 8/1 Boylesports

  • Race winner grid position:  second 9/4 bet365

  • Total number of classified finishers:  18.5+ Evens BetVictor


It’s the 21st and final race of Formula 1’s longest ever season this Sunday with the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix playing host to the final curtain call.  Nico Rosberg is leading the World Championship standings by 12 points and will be crowned as its victor on Sunday providing he finishes in the first three.  

That podium finish will only be a necessity if Lewis Hamilton wins the race.  There are other permutations.  For example a top three finish for Hamilton allied to finish outside of the top-10 for Rosberg would award the title to the Englishman.  But, all you really need to know is Stan James are going industry top-price 1/4 about Rosberg having his name etched on the Roll of Honour come Sunday night.

A Red Bull to go fastest?

There have been seven F1 races at this purpose-built €900 million venue and the results of them throw out some very clear messages.  For example, no pole-setter or race winner has ever set the ‘fastest lap’ in this race.  

Given Hamilton and Rosberg are priced-up at 8/13 and 9/4 respectively for the race victory and one will surely start the race on pole, it is prudent to give the second best car on the starting grid, the Red Bull, some love in the ‘fastest lap’ market this weekend.

Our marginal preference is for Red Bull’s No. 1 driver, Daniel Ricciardo.  The Australian set the fastest lap of this race in 2014 and he has also claimed three of the last nine ‘fastest lap’ awards.


The winner to start from second – again?

The stats also suggest this race will not be a ‘give me’ for the pole setter.  Only twice has the ‘frontmarker’ gone on to claim the race victory here, the car starting on second has won here four times.

Mindful that Nico Rosberg is aware he need only finish close behind teammate Lewis Hamilton to be crowned World Champion on Sunday there is good reason to suspect he could well qualify on pole but quickly surrender the race lead in order to follow Hamilton around and lessen his chances of being involved in a potentially race ending incident.


Finishers aplenty?

Finally we like the line on the number of finishers being over 18.5+, that’s available at even-money with Victor Chandler.  The last time 22 cars started this race (as they will this Sunday) 21 finished.  That was 2013 and since then 17 of 20 starters and 19 of 20 starters have ultimately been finishers.
