Despite Vettel looking stronger throughout the practise sessions once again a McLaren has qualified on pole. The previous three races this season saw McLaren win from pole and the previous three races at Singapore saw the pole sitter take victory. On this basis Hamilton is the clear favourite and his odds of 67/100 (1.67) from SkyBet. Little money can be made on Hamilton but there will much loss if anyone else wins. There are far higher odds found a few places down and spreading your money around is wise. Place £10 on Hamilton, £5 on Vettel at 19/5 (4.80) from Betfair and £1 on Maldonado at 16/1 (17.00) from Bet 365 and you'd make break even if Hamilton wins, make £14 if Vettel wins and £7 if Maldonado wins, though lose £16 if none win. The main danger with this plan is the first corner and how Maldonado handles it. On this basis there's actually substantially more uncertainty to Singapore this year on a circuit that is normally fairly predictable.

Maldonado is probably a good bet for a podium at 11/4 (3.75) from Bet 365 given how difficult overtaking is at Singapore. Raikkonen is also a wild card for a podium at 9/1 (10.00) from Bet 365. Although down in 12th, Raikkonen can choose to run the harder tire and go on a long first stint or even stop one less time. With the pitlane being the longest of the season at Singapore he could make many places up on the first round of pit stops. Finally, Grosjean to finish top 6 when starting in 8th at 109/50 (3.18) from Betfair is very good value.
