We have had quite an amazing start to the Formula 1 season. Australia saw Ferrari throw away a Mercedes gift while Bahrain was more of a disaster movie for Ferrari. This weekend we see the teams travel to China in a race that should be amazing due to the atmosphere, race track and the current standings in this seasons Formula 1 drivers’ championship.

Free practices will give us a better indication on how things will shape up for this race but we can still make a few early predictions that will give us a lot of value before the race statistics come through. Firstly if we look at qualifying, Lewis Hamilton has been out qualifying his teammate so far this season and I expect that to continue. Now this is not getting a great price but I think it is a pretty safe bet and the only way I see it going wrong is if somehow Mercedes have technical issues with Hamilton’s car.

Secondly I think we also have great value on betting on Sebastian Vettel to win this thing. Vettel is a great driver and Ferrari have been doing very well on race day. He almost won in Australia and his car failed him in Bahrain so I think he will be determined to show the world what he is made of once again. This is not the safest bet since Mercedes have been phenomenal for a while now but for the price we are getting I think it is worth the investment.

Finally, Daniel Riccardo to finish in the top 6. The Australian and his Redbull have been going along well and I think they will continue with that. Riccardo is a very talented driver and I think he will do well once again this weekend.
