Is BBC Sports Personality Button-ed up?

With all the surprise, excitement and intrigue of this year's Formula 1 season, just two weeks in, the Championship is having a big effect on this year's BBC Sports Personality of the Year award.

Lewis Hamilton has been lengthened from 6/1 to 9/1 to win the BBC TV Sports Personality of the Year Award by William Hill following his disqualification from 3rd place in the opening Grand Prix of the season.

But Jenson Button, who won the Australian Grand Prix and is favourite to follow-up with a second win in this weekend's Malaysian Grand Prix is 4/1 second favourite to lift the prestigious award, behind only Andy Murray, the 5/2 favourite in the betting.

Hills make boxer David Haye 10/1 fourth favourite, with jockey Tony McCoy, well fancied to win the Grand National, a 12/1 chance, ahead of 14/1 shots Ricky Hatton and Rory McIlroy, and 16/1 chance Amir Khan.

"This year looks like being a particularly open one with Andy Murray in the running for his first Grand Slam event, Jenson Button a world title contender and several boxers in with world championship prospects, while the Ashes series could also produce a number of potential winners, " said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.

"But Lewis' controversial setback could hinder his chances of going one better than the runner-up position he has occupied for the last two years."
