Formula 1 Betting Preview – Hungarian GP

Bet overpriced Kimi Raikkonen in Hungarian Grand Prix on Sunday 

Hungary’s Hungaroring is often described as “Monaco without the walls”.  Unsurprising really as the circuit is antiquated, meaning it is very narrow, twisty and offers no obvious overtaking opportunities.

So common sense dictates you should give the Monaco form the closest scrutiny when trying to asses both who is the most likely winner of this Sunday’s F1 race and who represents the best F1 betting value.


There’s no doubt Mercedes have made up and possibly surpassed the ground they lost to Ferrari during the winter but will their car be as effective and decisively quick here as it was at Silverstone at the last race?  

We think not, it could only qualify third and fourteenth in Monaco and its drivers both finished outside the podium positions when finishing fourth and seventh in the race itself.

Kimi Raikkonen claimed pole in Monaco and finished second to his teammate in the race itself.  Despite the Red Bull team bringing updates to their car this race weekend, we still feel the Ferrari, with its penchant for high-downforce circuits, will be the car to beat.

But we are not going for the obvious.  Ferrari’s supposed second driver, Kimi Raikkonen gets the shout purely on value grounds.  Betfair are going a remarkable 16/1 about the Finn and that makes him an outstanding each-way price in a race which he has previously won, finished on the podium an additional six times and set the fastest lap in 12 months ago.

Stats say NO Safety Car

Only four of the last 13 races here have needed a Safety Car so William Hill’s 8/13 about it not being used on Sunday looks a good price.  It is short alright, so maybe use it in an accumulator to put in with other bets this weekend.

10sec+ Winning Margin Bet

Betfred are going 6/4 about a winning margin in excess of 10 seconds.  That would have been a winner last weekend (where Hamilton won by 14sec) and it could be another successful bet this time around.  

The average Hungarian winning margin in recent times is around 12 sec and five of the last nine races here have been won by a margin in excess of 10sec.  Together those facts make Betfred’s quote an attractive proposition.

Best F1 Bets

  • Race Winner: Kimi Raikkonen   16/1 each-way Betfair

  • Safety Car: Not to be used 8/13 William Hill

  • Winning Margin: 10sec+ 6/4 Betfred
