Singapore GP Betting Preview - Ferrari to fly under floodlights

It appears the bookies have done their homework. In virtually every round this year Lewis Hamilton has been their favourite to prevail. But Singapore, in many ways, is different.

The sinewy track is expected to favour Ferrari and reflecting this Sebastian Vettel vaults to the shortest odds this time. Even so 13/8 for Seb to get the win and the same for the pole look well worth your stake. He's a local specialist too, having won here four times.

Red Bull is another that should be suited to Singapore. Daniel Ricciardo finished on the podium in all of his last three Singapore visits while in the last two years these were as a very close second. He is available at a very generous 11/8 to get onto the podium again. His team mate Max Verstappen's odds are slightly shorter, at 5/4, to do the same.

Still if Ferrari is likely to be on top we shouldn't forget Kimi Raikkonen, who has been right there with Seb in the two similar twisty challenges this season of Monaco and Hungary. And the bookies may have forgotten about him - he's a full 14/1 to win, 16/1 to get the pole and even 13/8 to finish on the podium.

Granted, given the title considerations Kimi may not be allowed to beat Seb home, but what if Seb breaks down or has some other delay? Singapore does tax reliability...

We shouldn't write off Mercedes however, it did of course get pole and win here last here (albeit in Nico Rosberg's hands). And Valtteri Bottas's odds for this weekend are particularly long. Earlier this season he was the lead Merc pilot in similar circumstances in Sochi and Monaco as well as qualified ahead in Hungary. You can get 13/8 for him to get on the podium this time and a whole 10/1 for him to win.

Carlos Sainz look good value

The bookies clearly have been swotting, as the chances of a safety car in Singapore F1 races is 100% and this is represented in swingeing odds of 1/6 for at least one to appear this time. Still it may be worth laying money on it.

The Singapore track suits cars with a good chassis and doesn't punish weak engines as much as other circuits. Toro Rosso and McLaren therefore will be looking for an elevated result here, particularly for its respective drivers Carlos Sainz and Fernando Alonso. The Spanish pair fought over sixth place in Hungary and both have good records at the Marina Bay track.

Sainz's odds are especially tempting - 11/10 to score and a fat 5/1 to get into the top six. Alonso's respective odds to do the same are 4/6 and 9/4.
