British Grand Prix Betting Tips, Predictions, Odds

- 13:07, 29th July 2020

The British Grand Prix takes place at Silverstone this weekend with world champion Lewis Hamilton looking a strong favourite to score his sixth home success in the last seven years.

The Mercedes driver leads the world championship by five points from teammate Valtteri Bottas after winning the last two races - the Styrian Grand Prix in Austria and the Hungarian Grand Prix.  

Red Bull's Max Verstappen, runner-up in Hungary is likely to throw down the biggest challenge to the Silver Arrows although his 2019 effort was ruined by a collision with Sebastian Vettel and he finished fifth.

British Grand Prix Betting Odds

Hamilton is a strong favourite to claim the win at 1/2, with his Mercedes colleague Valtteri Bottas considered his only serious market rival at 3/1

Red Bull's Max Verstappen is rated the clear best of the rest at 9/1, with the eye-catching pink Racing Point cars next with Lance Stroll at 40/1. The Canadian's teammate, Sergio Perez, has been ruled out after testing positive for coronavirus, with Nico Hulkenberg set to replace him. The second Red Bull of Alexander Albon is 60/1.

McLaren and the disappointing Ferraris fill the next four spots in the market with Carlos Sainz, Lando Norris, Charles Leclerc and Sebastian Vettel all on offer at 150/1.

British Grand Prix Prediction

Lance Stroll Top 3 Finish - BET NOW

The Racing Point team have been one of the talking points of this unusual F1 season. Their car is greatly influenced by the design of last season's championship-winning Mercedes and although Lance Stroll's fourth place in Hungary is their best result to date, they have looked close to being a match for anyone except the dominant Mercedes duo on pace at times.

The Mercs scored a one-two finish in this event last season, and while Hamilton and Bottas will be hard to keep out of the top two positions, Stroll looks a value bet at 4/1 to join them on the podium.

Ferrari are struggling this season and Racing Point look likely to be challenging Red Bull for the final top-three spot. Stroll's familiarity with the car should give him an initial edge over his temporary teammate.

British Grand Prix Outsider Tips

Pierre Gasly Top 6 Finish - BET NOW

Frenchman Pierre Gasly has had a disjointed F1 career but his best race in his time with the main Red Bull team last season was at Silverstone, where he qualified fifth and finished fourth in the race.

Gasly is back with the Honda-powered junior team Alpha Tauri this season, but he has shown up well in qualifying eighth and tenth at the last two races and could be seen to good effect at a track he enjoys - he won the feature race at the Northamptonshire circuit in his GP2 championship-winning season in 2016.
