It's McLaren vs Red Bull as Mercedes gamble goes flat
Sebastian Vettel took pole position in Monza and William Hill make him 5/4 to win the race.
He was a full half a second in front of Lewis Hamilton and Hills go 5/2 about Hamilton winning.
Jenson Button qualified in third and he is 11/2 joint third favourite to win the race along with Fernando Alonso.
The Mercedes cars have been very well backed in the build up to the race, but their performances in qualifying have left them in eighth and ninth and they are both offered at 100/1.
"The Mercedes gamble has seemed fruitless and now it would appear that we are in for a straight shoot up between Red Bull and McLaren," said Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly.
Hills offer 17/20 that Red Bull win the Grand Prix and despite having 2nd and 3rd on the grid McLaren are 11/8 to produce the winner of the race. At their home Grand Prix, Ferrari are 5/1.
