Webber New Favourite For The 2010 F1 Drivers Championship

As the 2010 F1 World Championship Series heads into the middle part of the season, with seven of the 19 races having taken place, punters now have a good feel for drivers and constructors form as favourites make themselves obvious.

Prior to the series starting, Fernando Alonso was the pre-tournament favourite at $4, and while delivering in the first race of the Championship, has not hit the top spot since then.

Mark Webber, the Australian Red Bull driver is just one of two drivers to have won more than a single race at this point of the season.

However Mark Webber, the Australian Red Bull driver is just one of two drivers to have won more than a single race at this point of the season – the Spanish Grand Prix and the Monaco Grand Prix.

Topping the leader board at the moment, Webber is sitting on 93 points, five ahead of the defending champion Jenson Button, and is currently the favourite to win the 2010 Driver’s Championship at $3.

McLaren’s Button is the second driver to have secured two races this season – the Australian Grand Prix and the Chinese Grand Prix.

Button is currently at relatively long odds to win the championship overall at $8.50 – having finished second in the most recent Grand Prix in Turkey, and is equal in the odds to Alonso.

The Ferrari driver claimed the opening race of the season – the Bahrain Grand Prix, but Alonso has not made much of an impact since then and sits in fourth place on the ladder.

It is Buttons teammate Lewis Hamilton who is currently chasing Webber in the odds at $3.25.

Sitting nine points behind the leader on the scoreboard, Hamilton has been itching for a top podium place all season, and finally secured one in the most recent Turkish Grand Prix.

Webber’s fellow Red Bull drier Sebastian Vettel has been constant this season, and sits as fifth on the leader board at the moment, and is at $3.50 for the title.

With Webber and Vettel favourites, it is no surprise to see Red Bull topping the odds as the team to claim the constructor’s championship at $1.55.

However Red Bull are currently a single point behind McLaren – who are at $2.65 to secure the title, and with the impressive from of Button and Hamilton of late, could be a solid wager.

Ferrari and Mercedes are at $10 and $67 respectively for the win, and would both need to see a dramatic shift from their drivers to win.

The next race on the 2010 F1 Championship Series is to take place on the 13th of June at the Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve as the Canadian Grand Prix.
