Hamilton Slashed For Abu Dhabi Victory
After an impressive first day in Abu Dhabi, William Hill have cut the price of Lewis Hamilton winning the Grand Prix this weekend from 6/1 to 5/2. Championship leader, Sebastian Vettel remains favourite for race victory despite having been lengthened from 5/6 to 10/11.
"We honestly were not expecting the McLaren cars to be as competitive as they were today and so congratulations to any punters who managed to get on Lewis Hamilton when he was 6/1," said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. "Despite the plunge in his odds, Sebastian Vettel is still the man to beat."
With just three races of his McLaren career left, William Hill offer 1/3 that Lewis Hamilton grabs a win for the team before his departure (9/4 he does not).
Abu Dhabi GP race winner: 10/11 Sebastian Vettel; 5/2 Lewis Hamilton; 6/1 Fernando Alonso; 9/1 Jenson Button; 9/1 Mark Webber; 33/1 Kimi Raikkonen; 50/1 Romain Grosjean; 80/1 Felipe Mass; 100/1 BAR
