Resurgent Red Bull storm back in Bahrain
Sebastian Vettel was impressive as the Red Bull cars finally refound their mojo in Bahrain. Hills are now offering 28/1 that Vettel wins at least the next three Grands Prix although he is 1/4 t fail to win the next race in Spain.
With Mark Webber coming in fourth, the Red Bull wiped the floor with their closest rivals and Hills go 20/1 that either Vettel or Webber win at least the next three races.
"It has been a struggle for Red Bull so far this season, but in the sand of Bahrain, they managed to claw back vital points in the hunt for a third consecutive title," said Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly. "Write off Sebastian Vettel at your peril."
Following disappointing performances from Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button, Vettel is now 15/8 favourite for the Drivers Championship - the first time that he has been favourite since before qualifying for the Australian Grand Prix (when he was 10/11). Lewis Hamilton is 9/4 second favourite with Jenson Button 7/2.
The spark that recedes have been showing in recent weeks seems to have been extinguished and Nico Rosberg is out to 12/1 (from 8/1) to win the Championship.
Drivers Championship: 15/8 Sebastian Vettel; 9/4 Lewis Hamilton; 7/2 Jenson Button; 12/1 Nico Rosberg; 14/1 Fernando Alonso; 16/1 BAR
