Lewis 6/5 for 2nd pole of the year for early pace setting McLaren
After a storming qualifying lap in Australia last week and setting the pace during practice in Malaysia, William Hill make Lewis Hamilton the 6/5 favourite to qualify fastest on Saturday morning. Jenson Button is the 3/1 second favourite for qualifying, after coming in third in Friday's practice and despite the Red Bull cars being way off the pace, Vettel is always capable of pulling something out of the bag and is 9/2 to bag the fastest lap. Both Mercedes cars impressed in the dry Malaysian weather, but with rain predicted for Saturday, Rosberg is 10/1 to qualify fastest with Schumacher 12/1. Hamilton is 4/7 to out qualify Jenson Button (5/4 vice versa).
"In a complete about turn from last season, the McLaren cars are setting the early pace and it is down to the others to try to keep up," said Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly. "The odds would suggest, however, that they are too strong for the field at the moment."
Lewis Hamilton is 7/4 to win the race, with Jenson Button 9/4 and Sebastian Vettel 7/2.
