2012 Australian Grand Prix

The 2012 Australian Formula 1 Grand Prix takes place on Sunday March 18, 2012 in what is set to be a bumper event in Melbourne.

Markets will open soon at the best bookie for online sports bettingbookmaker.com.au – and it will be who’s who of top drivers taking part in what is the pinnacle of motor racing in Australia.

The event is rich in history and stands as the oldest motor racing competition held in Australia, having first run at Phillip Island in 1928.

Red Bull driver Sebastian Vettel is back down under to defend his title and the German is likely to be among the favourites when the bookmaker.com.au markets open.

His Red Bull team mate and Aussie hope Mark Webber is also likely to be in contention after getting on top of the Pirelli tyres with which he struggled during his home race last year.

Mclaren drivers Lewis Hamilton and Jensen Button will be driving some of the better cars in the race and will be near the top of the bookmaker.com.au markets when they open tomorrow.

Button, a race day specialist, is likely to be a good value bet if the weather turns foul as he is a proven driver on a slippery track.

The Ferrari team is never to be ignored especially with champion driver Fernando Alonso at the wheel.

The Spanish two-time world champion is one of the best drivers competing in the 2012 Australian Grand Prix but much will depend on whether the Italian car maker can deliver a vehicle that will allow him to challenge.

Ferrari’s last world champion Kimi Raikkonen is now driving with Lotus and should not be ignored in the bookmaker.com.au markets.
