Hamilton Fav To Retain Japanese Grand Prix

Lewis Hamilton is expected to further his lead in the Drivers’ Championship with a win at the Japanese Grand Prix this weekend.

The Mercedes driver is the firm favourite at 8/11 to retain his title in Suzuka with teammate Nico Rosberg behind him at 7/2.

Hamilton has been dominating, winning seven out of thirteen Grand Prix so far this season.

The reigning champion has been receiving strong support ahead of the Japanese Grand Prix and is expected to hold onto the title for another year at strong odds of 8/11.

Singapore champion Sebastian Vettel has had great success on the Suzuka Circuit with a total of four wins, the most recent in 2013, and is on offer at 7/2 to give Ferrari their eighth win on the track.

Vettel’s Ferrari teammate, Kimi Raikkonen is next in the betting at 14/1 with Red Bull driver Daniel Ricciardo on offer at 25/1 and Williams’ Valtteri Bottas 33/1 to claim the title.

Nico Rosberg (10/3) nabbed pole position last year, but is overshadowed by Lewis Hamilton, who is priced at 2/5, to claim the fastest qualifier this time round.
