Formula 1 Europe top drivers

After the last race run in Canada, over 4 hours due to rain, and the mistake he did in the last lap, Vettel proved that he is not invincible. He was a race that he could easily win, but an exceptional comeback by Button, took him the victory. Being close to win the race on a circuit that was not favorable to Red Bull-Racing, proves that Vettel can win on every circuit instead. The street circuit in Valencia favors the RB7 and Vettel has the first chance to win this race. 

Checkyourodds prediction: Pole position and win Sebastian Vettel.

Great run by Button in Canada. he managed to win this race after passing 6 times through the pits. His morale is up and he can try to get another victory in the next race.

Formula 1 Europe tips

Here are some interesting tips to bet on the Formula 1 European Grand Prix.

- Vettel Pole position - He departed from pole in 6 races out of 7 this year. He is the fastest man on track and he shows that every race weekend.

- Vettel win - He was close to win 6 races out of 7 this season, still has 5 wins and 2 second places in 7 races. If he manages to depart from pole and the car will be fine, the victory is his.

- Alonso podium placement - He is a bit disappointed by the retirement from the Canadian Grand Prix, he could have performed well. He has a good chance to the podium.

- Hamilton podium placement - Same as Alonso, Hamilton need a podium to get his racing in the good mood. he will do anything to get it

Formula 1 Europe preview

As seen in the last races, the player that will leave from pole, has the most chances to win the race.  And that player usually has been Vettel. If he can get the pole here in Valencia, it`s hard to believe that someone can keep the pace with him. Ferrari proved in Canada in the qualification stage that they can come in front and they have made improvements, but in the race they could only get a 6`th place with Massa . McLaren Mercedes has a good chance to get good points, if they can keep both pilots on the track.
