This weekend’s French Grand Prix is the eighth of the 2018 Formula 1 season and it promises to be another exciting race in what is the first to take place in the country since 2008. Sebastian Vettel leads the way after his win last time out in Canada, with his one-point lead over Lewis Hamilton suggesting that they will be fighting for the title all the way to the final Grand Prix in Abu Dhabi.

The German had been struggling since the opening two races, but podiums in both Monaco and Canada have put him back on track. Their nearest challenger is the other Mercedes, Valtteri Bottas, but he has lacked consistency and is yet to claim a win.

In terms of form, it is the Red Bulls that have looked like being very competitive; Daniel Ricciardo won in Monte Carlo, with Max Verstappern claiming consecutive fastest laps. With this the first race in France in a decade, however, there is an element of the unknown with regards to how teams will fare at the Circuit Paul Ricard.



Tipbet have plenty of betting markets for the race, as well as a range of in-depth statistics to help with bet selections. These are in the format of head-to-head bets and includes drivers from both ends of the paddock, with teammates and direct rivals put head-to-head. Hamilton, who was named world champion in the last season that the Formula 1 circus made its way to France, is considered the form driver and, as he is 1.75 to finish ahead of Vettel, the favourite to take the chequered flag.
