Smart Money Is On Vettel In Brazil

Thursday 21-November-2013 08:12

Formula One heads to Brazil this weekend where all eyes will be on the Red Bull Racing pairing of Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber. Both drivers are desperate for Sunday's win but for two very different reasons.

Red Bull are undoubtedly the team to beat this weekend in Interlagos but the question is which of the two racers will take it.

Vettel - who at 15/20 is the firm favourite - is chasing a record-breaking ninth straight victory which would see him tie with Alberto Ascari's 60-year streak of nine wins on the trot. The only difference is Vettel would have achieved all nine of his in one season. A phenomenal achievement for the four-time World Champion.

However on the the other side of the garage, Webber - who is 7/2 to win this Sunday - is chasing only his first win of the season but what would be his last ever.

The Aussie is retiring from Formula One on Sunday night and would desperately love to leave the sport with a visit to the top step of the podium. And he is probably just as keen to be the one to end Vettel's streak. The odds of that happening, though, are 2/9 in Vettel's favour.

Sadly for Webber, the smart money with Betflash is all on Vettel taking the win.

As for those not driving for Red Bull, Fernando Alonso, Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg are all at 14/1 for the victory.

And if you consider Vettel's form, its almost giving away money backing the German irrespective of the odds.
