Formula One British Grand Prix Betting 2012
Formula One rolls into Great Britain for one of the most important races in the middle of the season. All of the talk is going to be about Lewis Hamilton, Jensen Button and Paul Di Resta. This won't bother the likes of Red Bull one bit who would prefer to wrap Sebastian Vettel up in cotton wool for the weekend and keep him away from the cameras just for once.
The British Grand Prix is the ninth race on the calendar and Formula One British Grand Prix betting 2012 will be active over the race weekend of July 6 to July 8. Conditions are likely to be greatly different from some of the tracks the drivers have raced at in the weeks and months building up to this race.
The British Grand Prix
The British Grand Prix is one of the best races of the season. It's hard to believe that there was debate a few years ago over whether Silverstone had a future in Formula One. This race is a favourite for a lot of drivers and it is a big chance for Hamilton, Button and Di Resta to perform in front of a British crowd.
The British Grand Prix is one of the shortest races in terms of lap count. There are only 52 laps to be covered of the 5.891 kilometre track. Conditions will be much cooler which will suit all drivers but it should ensure a very close race as drivers and teams will be able to nurse their tyres much more easily.
Silverstone is a great track in relation to Formula One Betting 2012. The reason it is a great track is because there is something for every type of driver on the circuit. Every sector has a piece of track where straight line speed is important and every sector has one or two corners which will be perfect for overtaking if a driver can get close to the car in front.
On the surface Silverstone looks as though it could favour the Red Bulls and the Mercedes cars a little more than other teams at the circuit. Vettel is a great bet for Formula One British Grand Prix betting 2012 because he’s shown this season he's great on tracks that favour aggressive drivers.
British Grand Prix Betting Markets
There are many British Grand Prix betting markets which are commonly popular when it comes to Motor Racing Betting. The stronger drivers will all be favourites but there is great value in backing a few underdogs for a podium finish in this race. Michael Schumacher could be a great bet as he has ample experience of this track and is in a very quick car.
Silverstone is a track which is not as demanding as some other circuits over the season but punters could choose to take a punt on the first car to retire during the race. Marussia and Caterham have both struggled this season and the odds for this market will be slightly longer than normal considering the nature of the track.
