Valtteri Bottas has an impressive record when it comes to qualifying on pole at recent Grand Prix's. His pace has also been good in the 2017 season. The Italian has managed some nice performances in the past. The odds of backing Valtteri are extremely attractive as of now, considering that he has fallen behind Sebastian Vettel in the Drivers’ championship table. However, he has shown excellent place to be considered as a great bet for qualifying on pole.
Lewis Hamilton will certainly be one of the favourites for succeeding at the 2017 Canadian Grand Prix. Betting odds for this event will be heavily focused on Mercedes and Ferrari when it comes to a victory. Both teams have been showing plenty of pace in the early parts of the 2017 Formula One season, but it is Hamilton who is likely to have the biggest impact. Bet predictions that back Hamilton is largely based on the Brit’s impressive record at the Gilles Villeneuve circuit. He has won the Canadian Grand Prix an incredible five times with only Michael Schumacher (7) ahead of him.
Hamilton has managed to win the last two races, although they came after a significant wait. Prior to these two wins, his last success was in 2012 when he was racing with McLaren. Still, he is a good bet to back in the F1 odds for the 2017 Canada GP. This prediction is for an outright win.
Kimi Raikkonen has an impressive record of qualification and pole position at the Canadian Grand Prix. The Formula 1 betting odds and tips in the past have largely focused on the Brit when it comes to this race. After losing out on the world championship last season, Raikkonen is very keen on winning the overall crown. Yet, Ferrari have been unable to make a dominant start to the campaign in terms of race victories. While this does not change the Grand Prix betting for the 2017 season, Raikkonen’s impressive record at the Canadian Grand Prix is likely to have a huge say for this race alone.
Hamilton has managed to win the race five times in the history. The possibility of moving within one victory of Michael Schumacher’s record of seven Canadian Grand Prix titles will be a huge motivation. This also seems to be a reason behind online betting odds focusing on Hamilton for triple success of a pole, fastest lap, and race win.
Sebastian Vettel leads the 2017 Formula One Drivers’ Championship after managing two wins. His successes at Bahrain and Australia have certainly made him as one of the favourites in the odds for predicting Formula One champions. However, his record at the Canadian Grand Prix is rather mediocre with just one win. It is surprising considering that Vettel had one of the fastest cars, and almost no competition, during his heyday set Red Bull racing. It is one of the reasons for Vettel to be a great option in the F1 betting for podium finishes.
Ferrari may be dominating at the moment, but it remains to be seen if the dominance will continue once Mercedes bring in their upgrades from the Spanish Grand Prix onwards. Even if Ferrari’s pace does drop behind Mercedes, the German can be backed for a podium finish in the Formula One betting odds.This prediction is for podium finish.
