Free tips Formula One Tips: Malaysian Grand Prix Betting Preview (Fri-Sun)

Take Two Ferrari’s in Malaysian Grand Prix

Compare F1 Betting Odds


Both Channel 4 and Sky Sports are broadcasting the entire F1 weekend this week.  The action comes from Malaysia and Practice Session No. 1 gets underway at 4am Friday morning.

Lewis Hamilton will surely come into this race full of confidence.  Victories at Italy and Belgium may not have been total surprises but triumph in Singapore last time, in a race where his chief title rival crashed out on the opening lap, has taken his 2017 win tally to seven and current win sequence to three.

This record makes the Brit’s outright price of even-money (top priced at Stan James) for race victory fully justified.  But he is surely way too short at 11/10 to top the time-sheets of the opening session.

Hamilton is six-from-13 in the ‘practice 1’ stakes this year but despite winning four of the last five races, he has only topped the time-sheets once during the past five race weekends.  In fact, he has gone fastest in just three of the past 15 practice sessions.

These results clearly underline a change in policy within the Mercedes garage with their engines clearly not turned up to their maximum performance capabilities during practice.  This is demonstrated by Lewis Hamilton’s qualifying record of eight pole positions during 2017.

Given the F1 stats at our disposal and understanding 11/2 represents value, we recommend a bet on Kimi Raikkonen in this market.  The Finn has already claimed two ‘victories’ in Practice 1 this season and he has the second fastest car in the sport right now. 


Sebastian Vettel to make it four?

In fact, the Ferrari might even be the fastest car in Malaysia. Despite two long straights cars need to be set up with a ‘high downforce’ configuration at this circuit and that plays to Ferrari’s strengths.

The multiple World Champion has won this race four times since 2010 and that’s enough to convince us he is the best option, at 2/1 with William Hill, on the race winner market.


10 from 13 means ‘no’ thanks

A Safety Car has only been needed her three times in the past 13 years and two of those incidents were related to a wet circuit (2009 and 2012). But this race is no longer staged in the spring (2016 was the first time it was given a late summer slot) and with the likelihood of rain lessened the 2/1 with Coral about a ‘no’ safety car scenario looks enormous.


Our Recommended Malaysian GP Bets:

  • Fastest in Practice 1 – Kimi Raikkonen 13/2 (7.50) BetStars

  • Race Winner – Sebastian Vettel 13/5 (3.60) BetStars

  • Safety Car to be Used? – No 2/1 (3.00) Coral

Full Terms & Conditions
Qualifying
  1. Offer available to new customers registering on or after 12:00 UK Time on 17th January 2019.
  2. Make a qualifying deposit of £5 or more to qualify for a 100% matched amount in Bet Credits up to £100. Your qualifying deposit is your largest deposit (capped at £100) made in the 7 days prior to you claiming the offer. Deposits made using NETeller, PayPal, paysafecard, Skrill, Skrill 1-Tap or ‘by Skrill’ payment methods, where available, will not count as your qualifying deposit unless you have completed Know Your Customer procedures (KYC) and entered a Postal Verification Code (PVC) or we have successfully verified two accepted forms of your Identity Documents. Please note, following a period of not less than 30 days from 7th March 2019, these verification requirements will apply both to your qualifying deposit and any subsequent withdrawal of returns from Bet Credits stakes using these payment methods. For more details on accepted Identity Documents, how to complete KYC, or to upload your Identity Documents, simply log in to your account, go to Members then My Account and select Know Your Customer.
  3. You must claim your offer within 30 days of registering your account.
  4. The maximum amount of Bet Credits that can be claimed is £100. For example, a qualifying deposit of £150 will qualify for £100 of Bet Credits.
Releasing your Bet Credits
  1. Your Bet Credits will be held in your account balance and are non-withdrawable. To release your Bet Credits you must place qualifying bets with a total stake value equal to or greater than the value of your qualifying deposit (capped at £100) and they must settle within 30 days of claiming the offer.
  2. Your Bet Credits will normally be available to use within one hour of the qualifying settled bet requirement being met.
  3. You may have more than one Bet Credits offer available on your account at any one time. However, qualifying settled bets will only count towards releasing one of the offers. You may choose which offer is active within the Members section.
  4. Bets placed using our Telephone Betting service will not count towards the release of your Bet Credits.
  5. Any single bets placed at odds of less than 1/5 (1.20) will not count towards the release of your Bet Credits. In multiple bets at least one selection must have odds of 1/5 (1.20) or greater to count.
  6. In market/fixture combinations that only have two or three potential outcomes (for example Soccer Full Time Result), where you have placed bets on more than one potential outcome, either pre-match or In-Play, only the outcome with your highest cumulative stake will count towards the settled bets requirement (if you have placed the same highest cumulative stake on more than one selection in the same market/fixture combination then only one will count towards the settled bets requirement). Any bets settled on other selections in the same market/fixture combination will not count towards the release of your Bet Credits. This term is applied in conjunction with the other restrictions. For example, if you have a £10 bet on Man Utd to beat Chelsea and a £15 bet on Chelsea to beat Man Utd on the Full Time Result market at odds of 1/5 (1.20) or greater, only the stake on Chelsea will count towards the release of your Bet Credits (if both bets were for £10 then £10 would count towards the release of your Bet Credits). If you were to place a further £10 bet on Man Utd to beat Chelsea at odds of 1/5 (1.20) or greater, this cumulative £20 stake will count towards the release of your Bet Credits and not the £15 stake on Chelsea.
  7. Fully Cashed Out, Instant Games, Gaming and void bets do not count towards the release of your Bet Credits. Where a stake has been partially Cashed Out, only the remaining active stake will count towards the release of your Bet Credits. Where a bet has been edited using our Edit Bet feature, the original stake will not count towards the release of your Bet Credits and only the new stake on the new bet will count. Please note, following a period of not less than 30 days from 7th March 2019, In-Play bets which are settled as a push will also not count towards the release of your Bet Credits.
  8. If you do not have qualifying settled bets to the value of your qualifying deposit (capped at £100) within 30 days of claiming the offer, your Bet Credits will be forfeit and removed and the offer will be closed.
Using Bet Credits
  1. Your Bet Credits are non-withdrawable. Any returns from Bet Credits stakes will be added to your Withdrawable Balance but Bet Credits stakes are not included in any returns. For example, a £10 bet placed at odds of 2/1 (3.00) would give a return of £30 (£20 winnings plus £10 stake), whereas a £10 Bet Credits stake placed at odds of 2/1 (3.00) would give a net return of £20, as the £10 Bet Credits stake is not returned.
  2. Stakes can be funded in part by your Bet Credits and part with your Withdrawable Balance; however the Bet Credits element of the stake will not be included in any returns. For example, a £10 bet placed at odds of 2/1 (3.00) which was funded by £5 Bet Credits and £5 cash would give a net return of £25 (£20 winnings plus £5 cash stake) as the £5 Bet Credits stake would not be returned. If a bet is void and has had an opportunity to win (for example, in the event of a push), Bet Credits stakes will not be returned. If a bet is void and has not had an opportunity to win (for example, when a Goalscorer bet is placed on a player who does not then take part in the match), Bet Credits stakes will be returned.
  3. For the purpose of Cash Out, the value displayed will already have the Bet Credits stake removed and will be the actual return received if Cashed Out.
  4. Your Bet Credits cannot be:
    • transferred to Casino, Games, Poker, Vegas or Bingo;
    • used as stakes on Tote (including other pool betting) and Lotto markets;
    • used as stakes on Bankers, If Bets, Reverse If Bets, Teasers or bets placed using our Telephone Betting service.
  5. Your Bet Credits will be forfeit and removed if your account is inactive for 90 consecutive days. Making a deposit, placing a Sports bet or participation in any Casino, Poker, Games, Vegas or Bingo product is deemed as having activity on an account.
