BET-IBC has an offer for all Motor Sport lovers – they can bet at the 2017 British Formula 1 Grand Prix at SBOBET – one of the top bookmakers we works with. Fans of the Formula 1 already “visited” Australia (Melbourne), China (Shanghai), Bahrain (Sakhir), Russia (Sochi), Spain (Barcelona), Monaco (Monte Carlo), Canada (Montreal), Azerbaijan (Baku), Austria (Spielberg) this year and on 16 July it’s time for their “visit” to Great Britain for the British Grand Prix 2017 at the legendary Silverstone Circuit.
The track was initially designed as an airfield and it became an important part of Formula1 and all Motor Sports in general in the 1950s. After World War II, England’s remaining circuits, Donington Park and the Brooklands were quite unusable not only because of the bombings but also because they were abandoned for a long time. Therefore, the Royal Automobile Club was in desperate need of an alternative location for high level automobile racing. The outer taxiways and the interconnecting runways of Silverstone fitted the bill nicely and the track became the main symbol of British racing since.
This will be the 72nd British Grand Prix and the 52nd time it will be held at Silverstone. After the latest upgrades and redesigning, the circuit is 5.891km long consisting of long straights ending in 8 left and 10 right handed fast open corners. It is a pity that it will be included in the F1 calendar for just one more race (the one of 2018) as it is going to be withdrawn in 2019.
Pilots will lap around 52 times to cover the total distance of 306.198 km. The fastest lap record is 1:33.401 and it is what Mark Webber did in 2013. Last year Nico Rosberg had the fastest time at 1:35.669 but he was not the winner. The checkered flag was taken by Lewis Hamilton for a third time in a row and it goes without saying that he will attempt to win for a fourth time and close up the gap in the driver championship race from Sebastian Vettel and his Ferrari.
SBOBET offers a 1.40 odd on the Hamilton effort and a 2.72 odd for the other Mercedes driver Valtteri Bottas who seems to be in quite a good shape lately. Interestingly the odd for Max Verstappen who did not finish at all at the last 2 races is given at 1.82, while for the other Red Bull driver, Daniel Ricciardo, who made the podiums recently, the odd offered is 2.00.
The race at Silverstone is always fun to watch wither as a spectator or on your TV set. The odds given by SBOBET add another level to the weekend by participating into the fun by betting on your favourite to win. Just fill in the SBOBET registration form, open an account, and do it before the weekend comes. Otherwise you’ll only enjoy half the fun.
