Free tips Formula One Betting: British Grand Prix Betting Predictions & Tips
British Grand Prix Betting Preview
Formula 1 comes home this weekend with the British Grand Prix staged at Silverstone. Read on for this British Grand Prix betting predictions and best bets.
Since 2014 this race has been owned by Lewis Hamilton who has started from pole three times, set three fastest laps and, most importantly, won the race four times. Read on for our British Grand Prix betting predictions…
Lewis Hamilton to win all apart from Fastest Lap?
But Hamilton’s Mercedes had an equally impressive record heading in to the Austrian race last weekend and he was beaten long before his mechanical breakdown nine laps from the end of the race.
Regardless of how he fares in this Sunday’s race it has to be deemed improbable that Lewis Hamilton will set the fastest lap of the race. When leading a race he tends to ‘power down’, as he did in France, and when he is behind his car does not respond to turbulent air (known as dirty air) and his lap times suffer.
Thrown in the fact that he has not set a fastest lap in 15 starts now and you have to oppose the favourite in this market. Similarly Sebastian Vettel tends to protect his tyres when leading and he hasn’t claimed a ‘fastest lap’ in 11 starts either.
British Grand Prix Betting Predictions & Tips
Therefore, we recommend backing Valtteri Bottas (7/2 William Hill), Daniel Ricciardo (9/2 Ladbrokes) and Max Verstappen (9/2 Paddy Power) as sensible Fastest Lap bet alternatives to the top-two in the betting odds list.
Seb start to finish?
Sebastian Vettel has not won the British Grand Prix since 2009 but for the past few years he has not had a car capable of doing the job.
No rest! The F1 action resumes this weekend at @SilverstoneUK, for the third consecutive race weekend!

But his Ferrari has won three races this season (two from pole position) and consequently you have to love bet365’s 5/1 about the German qualifying fastest and converting that advantage to a race win.
Top-10 for Renault
The Haas team enjoyed a rare double points finish last weekend. It was their first of the season. A one-from-nine record hardly sets the pulse racing or makes you want to take bet365’s* 11/10 about them repeating the trick.
But Renault have had ‘double points’ finishes five times and at this venue they should take that record to six – and the must be backed in the same market at 5/6 to get both cars within the Top-10.
Our British Grand Prix Betting Predictions:
Our F1 Bets for Silverstone are as follows. Oppose Lewis Hamilton & Sebastian Vettel for ‘Fastest Lap’ by backing:

- Sebastian Vettel to ‘win’ qualification and the race (5/1 bet365*)
