Mistakes Could Be At The Malaysian Grand Prix

Set your alarm clocks, as the Malaysian Grand Prix weekend is going to be an early one. Friday practice begins at 4am, second practice is at 8am. On Saturday the third practice session gets underway at 7am with qualifying kicking off at 10am. Sunday’s race starts at 8am. The action is broadcast live by both Channel 4 and Sky Sports.

Such timings, with odds compilers unlikely to be sat behind their monitors throughout the small hours, means there may be some lag between practice sessions and markets becoming in-line with on-track happenings. Therein some betting opportunities may present themselves in the coming days. Be prepared!

Expect Little Incident & High Finishing Figures

Pre-event the biggest mistake seems to be the even-money quote about Lewis Hamilton topping the time sheet in the first practice session. His Mercedes team have been clearly dong their utmost to protect their engines during practice sessions in recent races. In fact, of the last 15 sessions Hamilton, has headed the lists just once. That makes him a lay at such a short price all day long.

Small Margins Galore

The protection of engines and the desire to stress them as little as possible has seen some very small winning margins this season. In fact nine of this year’s races have been won by a margin of less that 5sec. Another couple have been won by 6.2sec and 6.6sec. That’s grounds to wade into Betfred’s 10/11 about another winning margin of less than 5sec.

Seb’s Fine Malaysian Record Can Count

If you are desperate for a bet on the race winner Sebastian Vettel is the best option at the prices. The German has won here four times since 2010, finishing on the podium in 2014 and succumbing to an opening lap collision last year.

Despite some long straights this circuit does require a medium to high downforce car set-up and that is very much to his Ferrari’s liking. The German was luckless last time in Singapore and out horsepowered in Spa and Monza but he has still amassed four race wins and five silver medals this campaign.
