13/8 favourites: British driver to win at Silverstone!
It's time to get patriotic this weekend with the British pairing of Lewis Hamilton and Jensen Button preparing for the F1 British Grand Prix at Silverstone.
McLaren very much hope their new rear-end package including a 'blown diffuser' will give the silver cars all the pace they require to thoroughly beat the Red Bulls and claim the victory on home soil.
With the ‘Home of British Motor Racing' featuring the British F1 Grand Prix on Sunday, Jenson Button feels ‘the one thing missing' from his career CV is victory in front of his home supporters.
"I've won in Monaco and I've won the World Championship, so winning my home Grand Prix is the one thing that is missing from my CV"
Jenson Button is 13/2, with Lewis Hamilton 3/1 to win the British Grand Prix. (1/4 odds 1,2,3)
"We all want to win our home GP, but especially the British because there are so many British supporters out there and a lot of British teams."
"Racing in front of your home crowd is one of the biggest buzzes for any racing driver and racing at Silverstone is always an exceptional experience. The crowds are huge throughout the weekend, everybody absolutely knows their stuff and the motivation and support you get is like nowhere else on earth."
So with the Brits 13/8 in the William Hill British Grand Prix - Winning Nationality betting, one of the British drivers is fancied to win this weekend... But can Jenson beat Lewis?
"I've a lot of competition with Lewis because he's very quick; in the last few races he has finished in front of me, albeit just in front of me, but he has finished in front of me - so I want to win the grand prix. I'm sure Lewis does. He won't feel any different to me so we are going to go out there and have some fun and hopefully one of us will win it."
