Hungarian Grand Prix 2017 Betting Tips Explained

The British Grand Prix could not have gone any better for Lewis Hamilton as he ended a poor run of form and moved to within just one point of Sebastian Vettel in the Drivers’ Championship standings.
Silverstone had been a happy hunting ground for Hamilton in recent years, with the British driver winning three straight races between 2014 and 2016, and if the Mercedes driver ever needed a victory in his home grand prix it was this year – and he got it.

Hamilton dominated from start to finish as he won his first race for a month, and the result got even sweeter for the former world champion as a front left tyre failure saw Vettel go from third place to seventh place in the final two laps, meaning a single point is separating the two drivers heading into Hungary.

“I did not expect to come away only one point behind,” Hamilton said afterwards. “Maybe seven or 10 or 12 – we kind of needed this. I couldn't have dreamed or imagined he would have the problem at the end. So to have that close up at the British Grand Prix, that's fantastic. So happy.”

So can Hamilton build on his record-equalling display at the British Grand Prix and take the lead in the championship, or will Vettel respond by winning his first race for two months? Or could we see a surprise winner at the Hungaroring on Sunday?

It would be easy to go with Hamilton – he is, after all, the hot hand following his success at Silverstone – but I cannot ignore the fact that no driver has managed to win back-to-back races this season. Hamilton, Vettel and Valtteri Bottas have all won multiple races in 2017 but none of them have managed to string a couple of wins together and for that reason I suggest ignoring the Race Winner market for Sunday.

Instead I suggest looking at the Pole Position market because this is one area of the 2017 Formula 1 season that has thrown up consistent results. Hamilton has set the standard when it comes to qualifying this season, landing pole position in six of the 10 races so far, and he has also showcased his one-lap speed in races by setting the Fastest Lap in six of those races too. Over one lap Hamilton is proving to be a hard man to beat so he is a solid option to claim pole position at the Hungaroring.

My other recommendation is to back Daniel Ricciardo for a Top 3 Finish on Sunday. The Red Bull ace had to settle for fifth place in the British Grand Prix, ending a sequence of five straight podium finishes, but that run of consistency prior to Silverstone should not be ignored, and neither should his recen track record at the Hungaroring. Ricciardo has followed up his race win in 2014 with third-place finishes in 2015 and 2016, and I expect him to be on the podium again this time around.

Winning 2017 Formula 1 Betting Tips So Far

The 2016 Formula 1 campaign was a highly profitable one for the team as our resident tipster Leigh Copson averaged one winning bet on every race that season, and he has been in decent form in 2017 with seven winners so far.

Having backed a winner in the season-opening Australian Grand Prix, he did the double by successfully tipping a race win for Lewis Hamilton and a points finish for Sergio Perez at the Chinese Grand Prix.

A fourth winner of the campaign followed as Sebastian Vettel’s Bahrain Grand Prix victory secured a 15/8 success, and Sergio Perez kept the good run going as his top-six finish in the Russian Grand Prix wrapped up a 7/2 win.

Daniel Ricciardo's top six finishes in Monaco and Canada then made it seven winning bets for the season, with Lewis Hamilton providing our latest winner when he claimed pole position for the British Grand Prix.

Hungarian Grand Prix 2017 Predictions

Hungarian Grand Prix Circuit

The Hungaroring has played host to the Hungarian Grand Prix since it returned to the Formula 1 calendar in 1986. F1 chief Bernie Ecclestone had been aiming to introduce a Russian Grand Prix to the schedule but opted for Hungary instead, and plans for a street circuit were then shelved in 1985 in favour of a new track – Hungaroring – that was built in less than a year and ready for the 1986 season.

The circuit is very similar in lay-out to the Monte Carlo street track used for the Monaco Grand Prix, with tight and twisting corners making it difficult to overtake. Conditions are usually hot and dry so drivers also have to battle with what is a notoriously bumpy surface, but that has not prevented it from being a venue that has hosted some memorable races over the years.

Lewis Hamilton holds the record for most Hungarian Grand Prix victories after his 2016 success saw him move ahead of four-time winner Michael Schumacher, who he had shared the record with for three years. No other active driver has won this race more than once, while only three drivers – Hamilton, Mika Hakkinen and Jacques Villeneuve – have managed back-to-back Hungarian Grand Prix victories in the past 20 years.
