Free tips Formula One Preview: Australian Grand Prix Betting Tips & Predictions (Sunday 6am UK Time)

Mistakes Aplenty in Melbourne F1 Betting Odds

The 2019 F1 season gets underway on Friday with the first two practice sessions.  There will be an additional ‘practice run’ on Saturday plus qualification and on Sunday (around 4.30am GMT) we see the cars in competitive action for the first time in three-and-a-half months.

Possibly distracted by the ongoing Cheltenham Festival the bookmakers seem to have made plenty of whoopsies presenting the punters with some exceptional betting opportunities.


Lewis Hamilton for Pole

The first is in the qualifying market where Sebastian Vettel heads the betting as short as 6/4 with bet365*.  

We much prefer Lewis Hamilton who has qualified on pole here for the past five seasons. And while the Brit has publicly stated the Ferrari is the faster car right now, something that was clearly the case at this stage in 2018, it cannot be forgotten it was Lewis’ Mercedes that started on pole.

Sebastian Vettel’s race win

Simply put, over a single lap with near empty fuel tanks Hamilton is expected to clock the faster time and set pole position once again.

However, with heavy fuel tanks and the cars circulating Melbourne’s Albert Park around 8secs a lap slower he will not be able to match the Ferraris, particularly the one driven by Sebastian Vettel who is attempting to win this race for a third consecutive year.

Predicting Hamilton starts on pole but Vettel is going to win does present punters with a predicament as the German driver will surely start at odds greater than the best price currently available – 15/8 at BetVictor – if not starting from the front.  Possibly bet365’s 5/2* about the race winner starting from second is an alternative.

Lay Leclerc and go low on finishing numbers

Ferrari have a new driver this season, Charles Leclerc, and the 21-year-old is just 5/2 (top-price at Ladbrokes) to win this race.  The youngster is joining the team as ‘second driver’ to multiple World Champion Sebastian Vettel and given the record of No.2 drivers at the Italian team currently stands at one win from 186 starts, he has to be laid on the Betfair Exchange on or around 3.75.

As for the finishing numbers, this race normally features a stack of retirements – between five and nine in recent years with an average of seven retirements.  Given the rookies on this year’s starting grid are relatively experienced and there has been no major changes to the 2019 regulations (meaning mechanical failures should be limited) bet365’s 7/4 about 14 or 15 finishers looks a great bet.
