Free tips Formula 1 Betting Picks: 70th Anniversary Grand Prix Predictions (Friday – Sunday)

70th Anniversary Grand Prix Predictions

A Week’s a Long Time in F1

Last weekend’s British Grand Prix hit the headlines courtesy of defective tyres. We are back at Silverstone this weekend, so can we confidently predict more of the same? The answer is ‘no’. Below you will find this week’s 70th Anniversary Grand Prix predictions and betting tips…

We had back-to-back Grand Prix’s in Austria at the start of the season and while the first race saw just eleven drivers see the chequered flag (with high curbs and rumble strips blamed for many failures), one weekend later 17 drivers went the full race distance.


70th Anniversary Grand Prix Predictions

17.5+ Classified Race Finishers 7/4 bet365*

Teams will now be fully aware of the importance of taking two pit stops and protecting their tyres throughout. That should allow for two things this Saturday (in a race officially known as the Emirates Formula 1 70th Anniversary Grand Prix 2020): High finishing numbers and a car other than a Mercedes claiming the fastest lap.

17 drivers were classified as ‘finishers’ last weekend which was a high number given one pilot never started meaning there were just two non-finishers. With tyre management likely to mean less wheel-to-wheel racing and a lessened chance of punctures, 17.5+ finishers looks entirely possible and rates a strong bet.


70th Anniversary Grand Prix Predictions – Fastest Lap

– Alex Albon 16/1
– Lance Stroll 25/1
– Nico Hulkenberg 33/1

It has become abundantly clear, in a clean run race, the current pecking order and probably 1-2-3 of any race is Hamilton-Bottas-Verstappen and that was how they were running last week before Bottas had his puncture.

But with these three clear of the pack at the business end of the race and that all-important ‘tyre management’ considered, it is very probable the person who earns the distinction of ‘fastest lap’ may not be one of these three.

Alex Albon held the fastest lap until the final lap of last week’s race and this week, in one of his typical fast finishing efforts, he might set it and keep it this time around. Others to consider, purely on the pace of their Racing Point car, is Lance Stroll and Nico Hulkenberg. At the prices you can back all three at decent odds but Albon is the stand-out.


70th Anniversary Grand Prix Predictions

Fastest Driver in Practice Session 1 – Lance Stroll 10/1

As we know the Mercedes is the fastest car on the 2020 F1 grid but they clearly don’t like showing their hand in early practice sessions. Last week it was Max Verstappen that topped the time sheets in the first practice session and Lance Stroll was fastest in the second session. Stroll had also gone third fastest in that opening session and at 10/1 he looks a great bet to top the time-sheets in this Friday’s opening practice session.


70th Anniversary Grand Prix Predictions

Qualifying winning margin 0.25sec+ 2/1 (NAP)

Like we say, the Mercedes is in a class of its own and Lewis Hamilton was three-tenths of a second faster than his teammate in qualifying last week and a full second clear of third-placed Max Verstappen.

It is an amazing 2/1 that Hamilton (or any driver) repeats last week’s trick of qualifying on pole by a margin in excess of 0.25sec. We love this and it rates as nap material on Saturday.
