You Bet Schumacher Set To Quit!
Bookies William Hill have slashed the price of Michael Schumacher not taking part in the final Grand Prix of 2010 from 25/1 to 10/1 as punters pile on his retirement.
The former world champion looks an increasingly forlorn figure with Hills offering 5/4 that he fails to win a race this season and 25/1 that he wins the drivers championship.
"The legend is being tarnished and unless Mercedes can provide Schumacher with a competitive car, punters feel there is a chance that he will walk," said Hill's spokesman Rupert Adams.

Schumacher Number Of Grand Prix Wins In 2010: 5/4 None, 3/1 One, 4/1 Two, 13/2 Three, 10/1 Four, 16/1 Five or more
You Bet Hamilton Still McLaren Number 1!
Despite Jenson winning the second GP of the year, Hills odds suggest that Lewis Hamilton will finish above Jenson Button in the race to become world champion at 2/5 with Button a 7/4 shot.
Button is 5/2 to fail to win again with Lewis 3/1 not to win a race this year.
"Lewis was perhaps unlucky in Australia and we still expect him to gain more points over the season that Jenson," said Hill's spokesman Rupert Adams.
