Hamilton Subject Of Lumpy Four Figure Bet For Korea
Lewis Hamilton has been the subject of a large four figure bet at William Hill ahead of this weekend's Grand Prix in Korea.
The bet was for him to qualify fastest and his odds have been trimmed from 5/2 in to 9/4 although Sebastian Vettel is the 4/5 favourite to top qualifying and the 4/6 favourite to win the race.
"Vettel has won the last three races and his car is much faster than anyone else's on the grid at the moment hence his short odds to win the race," said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. "Lewis is obviously well fancied though and the early bird punters think he may have what it takes to do the business this weekend."
