Formula One – 2019 British Grand Prix Betting Tips & Predictions

2019 British Grand Prix Betting Tips

The 2019 Formula One World Championship continues with the British Grand Prix. The first training is set for Friday 12 July; the qualifying round starts Saturday 13 July, while the race is scheduled for Sunday 14 July at Silverstone Circuit.

This will be the 70th edition of the British Grand Prix as a World Championship event, and Silverstone Circuit will be the home of the race for the 53rd time in the history. The 2019 Drivers’ Championship is slowly heating up, so we expect to see a thrilling battle between the top contenders.

Hereof, let’s take a closer look at the latest odds along with our betting tips for the 2019 British Grand Prix.

Lewis Hamilton is Searching for the Record

The two-time defending champion Lewis Hamilton looks unstoppable in 2019, winning six of nine races so far including four straight victories in Spain, Monaco, Canada, and France. Of course, Hamilton is topping the standings with 197 points and has a 31-point lead ahead of his teammate Valtteri Bottas who’s sitting at the second spot.

Hamilton finished fifth in Austria two weeks ago which is his worst placement this season. Now, Lewis will try to bounce back in front of the home fans at Silverstone Circuit where he won five times in his career. If he wins, Hamilton will become the first driver with six victories at the British Grand Prix.

Lewis is the strongest favourite to win at Silverstone this weekend, and you can take him at 4/6 with Bet365. On the same platform, Hamilton is set at 4/6 odds to win a pole position, while he’s a 1/7 favourite to finish on the podium.

Can Someone Stop Hamilton?

Lewis Hamilton, Mercedes – Grand Prix of Spain

At this moment, Valtteri Bottas is looking like the only man capable of beating Lewis Hamilton. The 29-year old Finn has two wins this season in Australia and Azerbaijan along with plenty of blown opportunities along the way.

Likewise, Bottas finished off the podium only once this year, while he earned a pole position three times. Valtteri is a 9/2 underdog to win the 2019 British Grand Prix with Bet365, while he’s set at 1/3 odds to finish on the podium. The price on Bottas to win a pole position is 4/1 with William Hill.

Max Verstappen is currently the 3rd-placed in the Drivers’ Championship, 40 points behind Bottas. Max recorded his first win of the season in Austria two weeks ago and will try to make it a streak at Silverstone Circuit.

However, Verstappen is a 9/1 underdog to win the British GP with Bet365, while the Red Bull’s driver is set at 16/1 to win a pole position with William Hill that offers 13/8 odds on Max to finish in the top three.

Ferrari is still looking for its first victory in 2019. Charles Leclerc is a 9/2 underdog to win at Silverstone with Bet365, while Sebastian Vettel is set at 11/2 odds on the same platform. Vettel is the reigning champion and a two-time winner at Silverstone Circuit, so he could be an interesting pick here.

Vettel is also set at 11/2 to win a pole position, and he’s a 1/2 favourite to finish on the podium. On the other side, Leclerc is set at 1/2 to finish among the top three, while he’s a 4/1 underdog to win a pole position.

If anyone outside of these five drivers wins the 2019 British Grand Prix, it would be a massive surprise. According to Bet365, the sixth-strongest contender is Pierre Gasly with the odds at 750/1 to win the race.

Our 2019 British Grand Prix Betting Tips

Lewis Hamilton will try to finally earn that sixth trophy at Silverstone, and I suggest you take him at 4/6 odds to win the race on Sunday with Bet365. Lewis blew his chance last year when he finished second behind Vettel, so I think he will be sharp and focused to outstrip everyone else this time.

When it comes to the podium, I expect to see Sebastien Vettel among the top three drivers. The four-time Formula One champion loves to drive at Silverstone Circuit and will be highly motivated to try to retain the crown here.

I assume Valtteri Bottas and Charles Leclerc will battle for the third spot on the podium, and one of these two drivers could post the fastest lap at 4/1 odds with William Hill.

The odds on the top contenders to finish in the top six are not tempting at all, but Max Verstappen looks like a nice pick at 4/11 odds with Bet365. Max is in a good form this year, and if he avoids any mechanical issues on Sunday, he could fight for the podium at the British GP.

If you are looking some surprises and eventual upsets, the bookmakers are excited about Red Bull’s Pierre Gasly. The 23-year old Frenchman is set at 10/11 to finish in the top six with Bet365, while he’s the strongest favourite to record the fastest lap at 7/2 odds.

Bet365 offers plenty of different markets for the 2019 British Grand Prix including the drivers special, and Lewis Hamilton is listed at 6/1 odds to get the fastest lap and win the race. Likewise, Hamilton is an 11/10 favourite to earn a pole position and win the race.
