Russian GP Bets

Lewis Hamilton Fastest qualifier and Race winner - 15/8

Back on a normal race circuit I expect Hamilton to bounce back from his poor showing in Russia last weekend with a faultless drive from pole. 

Lewis Hamilton quickest in 1st Practice - 6/4

As stated above, he needs to bounce back with a strong performance so expect him to top first practice on Friday.


Race winning margin under 5 seconds - 13/8

As with every race weekend this bet is just copy and paste.  F1 is so close at the front of the pack,  it's too good to turn down.

Kimi Raikkonen fastest lap 11/2

This bet came off last weekend and Kimi is always one of the favourites for the fastest lap.

Renault double points finish - 13/2

Palmer's luck has got to change at some point and he needs to bounce back from a disastrous Russian GP.  Team mate Hulkenberg has found his feet at Renault and is regularly scoring points for the team.
