Hamilton will be raring to go for Monaco Grand Prix, after putting pen to paper for a new three-year deal with Formula 1 team Mercedes
Ahead of the prestigious Monaco Grand Prix, and in light of Lewis Hamilton signing a new three-year deal with his Formula 1 team Mercedes, Bookies.com come up with four fantastic betting tips for punters to take.
Nico Rosberg wins – 6/4 with Paddy Power
The German has played second fiddle to teammate Hamilton for much of the 2015 season to date, having openly shown his frustration in interviews, but finally got a win under his belt at the last race in Spain.
Rosberg is also a back-to-back winner at Monaco, where he was brought up and still lives, and is a decent shout to defend his title and get a hat-trick of wins in the Principality state just off the French south coast.
Lewis Hamilton not to finish the race – 11/2 with BetFred
Hamilton will be full of confidence after signing a new mega deal with Mercedes, but has not tasted success here in Monaco since 2008.
In fact, he has only finished on podium once since then, and the occasion may get the better of him so is a decent chance with BetFred not to finish the race. With 111 points, and three wins from the first five GPs this year, he still tops the standings.
Max Verstappen top six finish – 11/4 with Coral
Verstappen, who is the youngest ever Formula 1 driver, put in a good showing in the first practise session at Monaco, coming second behind only world champion Hamilton.
The 17-year-old came seventh in Malaysia, and is a great shout to go one better here and finish in the top six.
Kimi Raikkonen podium finish – 5/2 with Sky Bet
Like Rosberg, Finn Raikkonen has been overshadowed by his partner, Sebastian Vettel in this case, as he is 28 points behind the German thus putting his seat under pressure for next season.
However, he knows how to win here, having claimed the 2005 title whilst at McLaren-Mercedes, and is the only driver this year to have split up the terrific trio of Hamilton, Rosberg and Vettel to finish on the podium. He came second in Bahrain, and is well-priced to be in the top three again.
