Hamilton Set For Back To Back Russian Grand Prix Titles
Lewis Hamilton has won back to back titles at the Suzuka Circuit and the newly crowned Japanese Grand Prix champion is expected to do the same in Sochi in two weeks.
Hamilton won the Russian Grand Prix last year and can be backed at strong odds of 1/2 to make a repeat of his success. Nico Rosberg, who finished second in the Japanese Grand Prix, continues to chase his Mercedes teammate as he lies second in the betting at 5/2.
Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel is next in the betting at 8/1 with teammate Kimi Raikkonen on offer at 25/1, Williams driver Valtteri Bottas is priced at 33/1 and Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo joins Felipe Massa at 40/1.
Hamilton is now 48 points ahead of Rosberg in the Drivers’ Championship thanks to his Japanese Grand Prix win, but it looks as though he is going to extend that lead even further by winning the Russian Grand Prix for two successive years.
Already the money has started to come in for Hamilton and we suspect that his 1/2 price could shorten in ahead of the race on October 11th.
