When asked for his impressions about the new Mercedes in a recent testing session, Lewis Hamilton declared it was “like last year’s car but better”.
That bodes pretty well for the reigning champion and perhaps the 4/6 with Sky Bet about the Brit walking away with another title is tantamount to buying money.
Team-mate Nico Rosberg appears to be the only driver capable of landing the spoils at odds of 5/2, with the German having endured a season-long spat with his team-mate during the 2014 campaign.
After that, Sebastian Vettel is an 18/1 chance and the potentially more interesting market is betting without the two Mercedes drivers.
The Australian Grand Prix is looming large and bet365 offer 11/10 that Hamilton claims the first chequered flag of the season, while £200 worth of Formula 1 free bets are available to new customers.
Several bookies will provide new customers with free bets on the 2015 Formula 1 season when they open an account, with William Hill currently providing new players with £30 when they use promotional code C30.
Expect some good money-back specials on the Grand Prix season when the action gets underway and there are also going to be plenty of live In-Play betting opportunities in Formula 1 this year.
However, it looks as though you should stick with those Mercedes drivers this year and Lewis Hamilton will be carrying lots of money for the title before the Australian GP gets under way.
