Unbelievably good F1 betting odds on Hamilton & Mercedes

January 15, 2017

I’ve had the best luck on betting by making smaller wins on the obvious results. Less pay out but much less risk.

The best odds and best bets I’ve seen for the F1 2017 season are on SkyBet – Hamilton is 5/4 and Mercedes at 8/11.

Put down, for example, £40 on Lewis and £33 on Mercedes and you can be looking at a nice profit of around £74 come early November.

SkyBet are also doing a £10 free bet for first time customers. In any case, loading money onto Hamilton or Mercedes is as safe a bet as they come, in F1 or any sport.

I’ve got £80 down on Hamilton to win the WDC in 2017 and am looking forwards to a nice £100 pre-Christmas bonus!

Obviously with the stake back that’s £180 that’ll come back to me in November 🙂

Jenson Button to Mercedes for 2017

December 4, 2016

Did this title really surprise anyone?

Think about it – even though Button said that he wanted a break from F1, imagine if you were in the same position. The Mercedes is still untouchable next year, and for the years after that without regulation changes.

So as every F1 media goes through ‘who will be confirmed to drive at Mercedes with Hamilton for 2017’ and look for the in the know, insider gossip on Mercedes for 2017, Button is a strong candidate.

While Hamilton is clearly the fastest and best driver and Button wants a break from the sport, if you were him and had the chance to drive the Mercedes for one more season – why wouldn’t you?

Button doesn’t have any children and has nothing else to do.

The Mercedes is MASSIVELY faster than the other cars and can give any driver – even someone as talentless and dull as Nico Rosberg – an F1 title as long as Hamilton has reliability issues.

Valteri Bottas is a safe choice, but Button may be a good fit for Mercedes for 2017.

Hamilton still on course for #F1 victory in 2016

March 20, 2016

The Australian GP is very rarely representative of the cars, or the season to come.

The track is a pretty odd one. It lacks the guarantee of certainties – there are not the long straight, the sweeping corners, the specific tight sections that come up in almost every other F1 track.

It’s all ‘bitty’ and less rhythmic that other circuits.

Hamilton’s mistake was a big one, but over the course of a season, he still has the will, and obviously the skill, to out-qualify Rosberg and therefore out-class him on a normal F1 circuit.

Stupid #F1qualifying idea too stupid even for Ecclestone

February 29, 2016

Fiddling with qualifying is silly.

Even Ecclestone, a man who appears to be completely without basic human soul, finds the proposed ideas to be silly.

Some 90 second elimination rule doesn’t make it more ‘exciting’. It makes it more ‘confusing’.

There is no way to make any sensible changes to qualifying, because it won’t change what we want:

We half-watch Q1 and Q2 because the crap teams are boring, and we just watch it to see if any of the big teams make mistakes, and so we can gauge exactly how shit McLaren currently are.

Then in Q3, we want to see the two drivers in the best team razz it to the edge to get the best time (it might be nice if it were four drivers in the best two teams, but that can’t be controlled in the sport unless there are highly restrictive car regulations, which is slightly another story).

Any 90 second rule won’t change the best teams being able to EASILY get the best times – unless they make a mistake.

So, more confusion, less excitement. Poo.




Stupid #F1 and idiotic #2016F1 comments

February 20, 2016

Here at F1addicted Towers, where we sit on our wanking throne in our pyjamas typing out rubbish, we love pre-season car and testing comments.

You can even look as far back as 2011 and read these.

2016, thankfully, is no different.


  • Christian Horner says that Red Bull are really shit, but they might not be as shit in 6 months time. (he forgets that most/all other teams will also improve through the year. Oops.)
  • Unproven ‘right place, right time’ “Champion” Vettel says Ferrari will be better, because they now use a Mercedes engine – oh no wait, they don’t.
