British Formula 1 driver Lewis Hamilton was among the auto racing betting favorites to win the 2016 Monaco Grand Prix for good reasons, and he delivered for online betting fans who put his money on him. By virtue of winning this race, Hamilton has become one of the few in F1 history to win it more than once, putting on a racing clinic on the Circuit de Monaco to claim his first win of the 2016 season. On the flipside, his Mercedes Benz teammate Nico Rosberg had a comme ci, comme ça evening. He started in second place, and seemed as if sixth was the best he could manage. As a result of this result, Hamilton gets even closer to Rosberg, who still leads the driver rankings.
Nico Rosberg (+170) and Lewis Hamilton (+160) are the auto racing betting favorites to win the 2016 Monaco Grand Prix. Monaco is arguably the signature event of the Formula 1 season, and is part of the Triple Crown of Motorsport along with the Indy 500 and the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Rosberg currently leads the F1 season with 100 points after winning four of the first five races. In addition to that, the German driver is the fourth racer in history to win the Monaco Grand Prix three consecutive times – as it turns out, the last three editions of the race.
The auto racing betting favorites to win the 2016 Indianapolis 500 will not just be competing to win any race – and under no circumstances is the Indy 500 any race. In addition to being, as always, the premier event of the Verizon IndyCar Series season – also known as The Greatest Spectacle in Racing – this will mark the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500. Technically speaking, this will actually be the 99th scheduled 500-mile race of the canon, since the the1916 race was in fact scheduled as a 300-mile race – but don’t let that a matter as small as a couple hundred miles spoil the fun. This is still such a momentous occasion that Darius ‘Hootie’ Rucker himself will sing the national anthem.
Five races into the longest Formula One season in the history of the sports, the auto racing betting favorites to win the 2016 Formula 1 Drivers Championship are beginning to sort themselves out.
