Alonso 22/1 to win fourth Bahrain Grand Prix

Whether you agree with the politics surrounding the Bahrain Grand Prix or not, it appears that it will now go ahead and fingers crossed everything goes smoothly.

Mercedes will be looking to follow up their victory in China and are 5/1 (SkyBet) to claim their second win of the season. Nico Rosberg claimed his first Formula One victory at the 111th time of asking in Shanghai and he is 9/1 to get his 2nd race win here in Bahrain.

The Bahrain GP has been raced just eight times to date, with Ferrari claiming half of them. They are likely to find it tough to complete the five-time however, hence why they are best-priced odds of 20/1 with Ladbrokes to do so.

Fernando Alonso won the last Bahrain Grand Prix in 2010 and the two-time F1 champion is 22/1 (Skybet) to become the first driver to win four times at the circuit.

The Spaniard passed Sebastian Vettel when the Red Bull driver lost power in the final third of the race on that occasion. Vettel started in pole and lead for the majority of the race and looks a great price at 12/1 with Victor Chandler to start from the front of the grid again this weekend.

Lewis Hamilton leads the Drivers’ Championship despite not winning a race this season so far and the McLaren driver is 4/9 (Bet365) to make the podium again.

Team-mate Jenson Button is just two points behind after three races and Sporting Bet are still offering 9/4 about him claiming his 2nd Drivers’ Championship in 2012.

If you are looking for an outside bet then Felipe Massa might be the one. He has won this race twice already (25% of all F1 races at the Bahrain International Circuit) and is 250/1 to claim his third victory here for Ferrari.

Whichever way you look at it, this year’s Formula 1 betting looks as open as ever and hopefully Bahrain will throw up yet another exciting race this weekend.

Coverage of qualifying gets underway at 10am on Saturday, with the race starting at 11.30am on Sunday.
