The second race in a row sees an all Red Bull front row although most usually it is Webber who sits in P1. Despite this, Vettel is considered the favourite, with odds of 21/20 (2.05) from Betfair compared with 7/1 (4.50) for Webber to win from Bet 365. Vettel possibly is more likely to win, he has been slightly ahead of Webber most the rest of the weekend, Webber is renowned for his weak starts and it is conceivable that Webber might even hand Vettel the victory on the final lap to support the team. However, even given these factors Webber is still good value for money. He has only been marginally slower, and there’s no guarantee he will have a bad start or hand victory over. If both Red Bulls are very competitive then victory might be decided by some minor factor like which Red Bull driver stays out longer during pit stops or comes out behind traffic. Betting on both drivers is advised. If betting £10, place £7 on Vettel to win £14.35 and £3 on Webber to win £13.50. Alternative, place £5 on Vettel to break even and £5 on Webber to win £22.50.

No other driver looks like to challenge Red Bulls. They have been slightly behind all weekend. Both Hamilton and Alonso have odds of 5/1 (6.00) for victory from SkyBet which is only slightly behind the substantially faster Webber. Both of them are likely to challenge for the podium position behind the Red Bulls with, both having odds of 1/1 (2.00) from Betfair. Alonso is the better bet given the reliability of the Ferrari and that he was ahead of Hamilton in free practice.
