This is going to be straight fight between Vettel and Hamilton. So, it is better to choose one of them in online betting. Ferrari has made it clear that they will let Vettel finish first ahead of Kimi Raikkonen. Similarly, Valtteri Bottas of Mercedes does not show the kind of form he shows in qualifying rounds in the actual race. Furthermore, Red Bull has not produced the car to match the Ferrari and the Mercedes. Don’t look any further than Hamilton and Vettel. But who is going to win this: Hamiton or Vettel?

Prediction for Online Betting

Vettel has won in Canada only once – 2013. So even in his Red Bull heydays, this was not a lucky circuit form him. However, Ferrari seem to have produced best car for this year’s specification, especially with regard to tyre management. It is becoming increasingly evident. That should help Vettel to finish first here.
