Vettel Edging Out Webber As Favourite For 2010 German GP

The world’s top F1 drivers and constructors have stayed in Europe to partake the 2010 German Grand Prix this weekend as the 11th round of action in the 2010 F1 World Championship Series comes about.

Sebastian Vettel seems the man to beat this weekend and is at $2.62 at SportsBet for the win.

Taking place on the Hockenheimring the 67-lap event will roar to life at 2pm this Sunday the 25th of July with practices getting underway today in the German town.

Sebastian Vettel seems the man to beat this weekend and is at $2.62 at SportsBet for the win.

The Red Bull driver had a disappointing race at the 2010 British GP, and will be desperate for a dominant win as he sits at fourth place to Lewis Hamilton on the overall leader board by 24 points.

Vettel was dominant in the 2010 European Grand Prix where he secured his second win of the season, and is always a strong candidate for the pole position which he has claimed at five of the ten races to date, and is at $2.25 to do so again.

Teammate to Vettel and winner of the British GP was Australian driver Mark Webber and he is at $3.75 for the win at SportsBet.

Webber has been superb this season and is certainly worth a big punt in the podium finish market at $1.57 to make it worthwhile, but bettors should seriously consider wagering on Webber – especially seeing as he is Aussie – being the only F1 driver to have won three GP’s this season.

Leader on the scoreboard Lewis Hamilton is at $4.50 for the win at SportsBet – rather a long odd seeing as the Brit has had such a successful season lately.

The 2008 champion will be looking to lengthen his lead so a win would be rewarding to punters and seeing as the 2010 Canadian GP winner has not finished outside the top six in his last seven races could be a safe punt in the top six market at $1.25.

The only driver outside the duo of McLaren and Red Bull touted as a favourite is Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso at $6.

Alonso finished a disappointing 14th in the British GP and has not won a race since the opening round in Bahrain so is most likely a wasted punt.

Jenson Button also has seemingly long odds at $10 for the win – perhaps something bettors should make the most of at SportsBet.

Button is second on the overall scoreboard 12 points behind his fellow McLaren driver, and disregarding the 2010 Monaco GP where Button was forced to retire, his last seven starts have all seen him finish in the top five from as far back as 14th on the grid – so do not let that put you off!

It is no surprise to see Red Bull leading the odds in the winning team market at $1.67 with McLaren closest in the odds at $3.50.

If you believe Alonso can get his season back on track then back it up with a punt on Ferrari resulting as the winning team this weekend at $5.50.

There are plenty of other markets on offer for you to have a look at if you are interested such as the fastest practice time, the first car to retire, the first driver to retire, the number of drivers to finish and many more – so head to SportsBet to have a punt yourself!
