Hamilton Odds On For Championship, Rosberg Odds On For Race

Lewis Hamilton represents a near £200,000 payout for William Hill should he pick up the Championship for which he is 2/7 to do so. Nico Rosberg is 11/4 despite starting on pole for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.


Rosberg is 4/5 to win the race with Hamilton just behind at 5/4.


There is no doubting that the pressure will be on both Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg and it is 14/1 for both drivers to collide resulting in one of them departing the race. Hamilton is 20/1 to lose the World Championship as a result of a collision with Rosberg.


“It is the final countdown and by late Sunday afternoon, we will know which driver handled the pressure the best and scooped the World Championship,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “The odds suggest it will be Lewis.”


Abu Dhabi Grand Prix winner: 4/5 Nico Rosberg; 5/4 Lewis Hamilton; 20/1 Valtteri Bottas; 33/1 Felipe Massa; 40/1 Daniel Ricciardo; 80/1 Sebastian Vettel; 150/1 BAR
