It’s another F1 week ahead starting with the Monaco GP Practice session 1 on Thursday 24th May. Read on for our Formula One Bets for the Monaco Grand Prix this weekend…

  • Race Winner – Daniel Ricciardo at 5/1 – Betway
  • Classified Finishers – Over 14.5 at 10/11 – Betfred

*Odds correct at the time of writing

Daniel Ricciardo to put his Monaco record straight

Betway have seemingly made a mistake in pricing-up Daniel Ricciardo at 5/1 for Sunday’s Monaco Grand Prix.  The Australian was luckless in this race in 2016 when his crew botched his pit-stop and cost him certain victory.  Last year he took home a silver medal giving him his third Monaco ‘podium’ in four years.

But it’s not Ricciardo’s fine record here that makes him a stand out in our Formula One bets this week, F1 paddock judges are convinced his 2018 spec Red Bull car will like this circuit more than any other.  Put simply, low speeds and tight corners are its meat and gravy.

15+ Finishers on the formbook

Next up head over to Betfred who will give you 10/11 about the race having over 14.5 classified finishers.  (They will also reward new customers with £30 worth of free bets when you register and stake just £10**)

The Monaco circuit may be renowned for its accidents and incidents – they have conspired to necessitate a ‘safety car’ for all of the last eight races here – but the stats do not lie and they show only twice in the past dozen years has 14 cars or less been official race finishers.

**Only available to new customers from UK & Northern Ireland. You must stake £10 or more on a Sportsbook market at single/cumulative odds of Evens (2.0) or greater on your first bet. E-Wallet restrictions apply. Betfred.com will credit your account with a free bet of £30 within 48 hours of your first bet settled, awarded in the currency that your account is held in. Free Bet will expire after 7 days. Terms & Conditions Apply

Valtteri Bottas to miss again

bet365 have a market on drivers NOT finishing on the podium and it sees Valtteri Bottas quoted at 1/2, it’s a great price.  The Finn has never finished on the podium on this street circuit and his record at a similar circuit, Singapore, is poor.

Furthermore his Mercedes may well be the third fastest car here – behind the Red Bull’s and Ferrari’s – so there’s every reason to believe he may not come out better than fifth even if everything went to plan for him.

Kimi Practice King

Before all of this, on Thursday, we have the opening practice sessions.  And the 8/1 with William Hill about Kimi Raikkonen to top the time sheets in the first of them has some real merit.  The veteran driver knows how to perform around this tricky circuit and he started last year’s race from pole position.

What is expected the be the fastest team here, Red Bull, do not operate their cars at their optimum during the opening practice sessions of any race weekend and so this should be a straight shootout between the Mercedes and  Ferrari drivers.

Given Hamilton (in his Mercedes) and Vettel (Raikkonen’s teammate) are sharing 5/2 favouritism in this market, the 8/1 about the conceived Ferrari No. 2 driver has to be too big and is a clear ‘value bet’.
