Fernando Alonso is 12-1 (from 16-1) with Coral for the F1 Drivers’ title, following his British Grand Prix victory today. Silverstone runner-up, Sebastian Vettel remains red-hot 1-12 favourite, while his Red Bull team are 1-50 for the Constructors’ title. The Spaniard is 11-8 favourite in Coral’s betting without world champion Vettel.
There was some good news for Jenson Button backers, as Coral had promised to refund punters who backed the British driver if he finished outside the top ten.
“It was disappointing to see Jenson Button fail to finish for the first time this season in front of his home crowd, but at least his backers did not miss out, and we’re giving back in the region of £50,000 to our customers,” said Coral’s David Stevens.
