Lewis Hamilton 3/1 to beat Schumacher’s 7 F1 titles
Mercedes driver odds-on to win 2019 championship
Our traders are offering odds of 3/1 for Lewis Hamilton to beat Michael Schumacher’s record of seven F1 World Championships, after the Briton won his fifth yesterday at the Mexican Grand Prix.
Hamilton is odds on at 5/6 to win the 2019 title and make it three in a row.
Coral’s Harry Aitkenhead said: “Hamilton is now well and truly one of the greats of F1 and not only is he at the peak of his powers but his desire seems as strong as ever.
“If he continues to drive he’s going to have every chance to break Schumacher’s record and our odds now suggest it’s definitely within reach,” added Aitkenhead.
He is now just 6/1 to win Sports Personality of the Year, having been 20/1 over the summer.
“It was a fantastic summer for British sport with Geraint Thomas and Harry Kane shining amongst others, however Hamilton has delivered in the autumn and it’s catapulted him right into the mix to win Sports Personality of the Year.
He’s won the award once before, plus finishing second twice, so is sure to be popular in the voting and is just 6/1 to be crowned winner now,” added Aitkenhead.
