Everything favours Vettel

Vettel dominated most of practice and qualifying, on a circuit he has won previously twice. Also, three of the last five victories at Singapore have come from pole position. It also has the shortest run to the first corner and Rosberg is not exceptional at starting races. In any straight fight, Vettel shall win. Betting on anyone else for victory is gambling on mechanical failure of Vettel's car or being caught out by a safety car. Unfortunately, Rosberg's odds of 7/1 (8.00) from SkyBet are too small for this to be a reasonable gamble.

Grosjean's odds of 81/50 (2.62) for a podium finish from Paddy Power are very good value. The Lotus typically does better in the race than qualifying and usually does better on warmer circuits. Starting in 3rd position on a track difficult to pass on, Grosjean looks in a very good position for a podium finish.

Gutierrez has 187/100 (2.87) from Bet 365 for a top 10 finish. Starting in 10th, the only car that should definitely get past him in Raikkonen. If a single car ahead crashes or has a mechanical failure then Guiterrez would be in a reasonable chance for a points finish, making those odds good value.
