Settled Lewis Could Be Man To Beat This Season
Hamilton 10/1 To Have Drive Through In Australia
Lewis Hamilton had a year to forget last year, finishing 165 points behind eventual winner Sebastian Vettel and even finishing 43 points behind teammate Jenson Button. This year could be different think William Hill, with Lewis the clear second favourite for the Drivers Championship, at 6/1. He is also 4/6 to finish higher in the Championship than Jenson Button. Hamilton's 2012 was blighted by mistakes and collisions and while his season should be a little bit more settled, he is 10/1 to be given a drive through penalty during the Australian Grand Prix, a race for which Hamilton is the 5/1 second favourite behind Sebastian Vettel (11/8).
"Hamilton's struggles could be pinpointed to issues in his private life, but we think he could be a bit more settled this season and with that, he should really be able to turn the heat up on Vettel," said Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly.
