F1 Bahrain 2016 Betting Tips

We got off to a nice winning start with the F1 Betting Tips for the 2016 season with the Felipe Massa finish.

We predicted Massa would finish in the Top 6 and he did that with ease. His Williams car was well ahead of the next finisher Romain Grosjean who drove a good race. The Australian Grand Prix was an interesting one – especially with that mess of qualifying. Holy crap was that hilarious to see.

So Rosberg gets off to a good start and now we have the Bahrain Grand Prix. Lewis Hamilton has won it the last two years and Sebastian Vettel won it the two years before that. All of those wins were at the Sakhir Grand Prix Circuit. It seems to be a race ripe for double winners with Massa and Alonso both winning it twice in a row. Fernando Alonso is the only driver to have won it three times total.

Let’s get to the F1 Bahrain Betting Tips:

Race Winner: Sebastian Vettel

He’s a huge price but damn do we like Vettel. He obviously has the history here and you can’t really look at Australia when it comes to the Ferrari – they were just a badly timed safety car away from winning there and should have walked away with the win.

Sure they are still off the ultimate pace of the Mercedes but only by a few tenths and if Vettel can get off to another lightning start then this should be his race.

Top 6 Finish: Nico Hulkenburg

This is a tricky one because we’re basing a lot of it on the new and stupid qualifying rules as the format is staying the same for this race. We have look at it last time out and what will happen here. The one thing that really stands out is that the prime beneficiaries will be the teams that qualifying around 9th-10th because they’ll get a free tyre choice, and will run long on the hardest tyre. This is prime Force India territory, and we hope Hulkenburg can take advantage and do the business here.

Long Shot Bet:

Our patented long shot bet and it’s that the grid position of the winner will be 3rd or 4th. We think that it will take the drivers another couple of races to fully adjust to starting the car without any radio help, and we think that getting stuck behind a car early will hurt the tyres. So we think this is prime position for a 3rd or 4th grid position driver to grab the victory.
