Michael Schumacher F1 Odds Available After Comeback Announcement And He Is Third Favourite For Title
Wednesday 23 December 2009 at 11:36
Michael Schumacher is the third favourite in the F1 Drivers Championship Betting Odds after announcing his return to the sport with Mercedes today. This announcement brings added excitement to an already promising season which will see Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button going head to head at McLaren.
Schumacher Looks Generous Odds To Win One Race At Least
Michael Schumacher can currently be backed at odds of 13/2 with SkyBet, VC Bet and Boylesports to win back his F1 title next season. It had been thought Schumacher would return for Ferrari last season when Felipe Massa was ruled out half way through the season but an injury prevented him at that point. Now that Schumacher has returned it is perhaps a surprise he is available at such big odds. Blue Square offer odds of 4/7 that Schumacher wins any race and that looks very generous and should be snapped up immediately.
Lewis Hamilton Favourite But He Also Has Jenson Button And Fernando Alonso To Beat
The favourite next season is Lewis Hamilton, who finished the season very well for McLaren after their car was not so competitive at the start of the season. Hamilton is a 11/4 chance with Stan James and Betfred, well ahead of current champion Jenson Button who has joined McLaren and is 15/2 with Stan James. The other driver expected to finish ahead of Schumacher is Fernando Alonso, who will be making his debut for Ferrari, and is available at 7/2 with SkyBet and William Hill.
