Daniel Ricciardo odds & betting tips, Australian F1 Grand Prix

Daniel RicciardoMain race kicks off Sunday, March 26 from 4 pm AEDST Melbourne

THE opening of the 2017 F1 season is finally upon us as all eyes descend on Melbourne.

For the Aussies though, our attention is on superstar Western Australian Daniel Ricciardo as the 27-year-old attempts to break the Mercedes stranglehold on the first event on the grand prix calendar.

Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamiltion have won the last three Australian Grand Prix between them, but a partisan Aussie crowd will be on Ricciardo’s side come Sunday.

Ricciardo is a $12 chance at to win the Australian Grand Prix despite being third in early practise, but everyone’s favourite Australian Formula 1 driver said his sole focus is Sunday’s main event.

“Sunday 4pm, lights are going to go out and we’re going to race and hopefully we’re going to go well,’’ Ricciardo said.

“Testing is never really a clear picture. I expect Ferrari and Mercedes to be quick and I hope we can be with them as well.’’

2015 Australian Grand Prix winner Lewis Hamilton was the fastest in the opening practise and subsequently firmed into $2.10 at to win the opening F1 race of the season. bonus betting

Race preview

It seems like a broken record when it comes to Formula 1 racing, but the Mercedes are the team and drivers to beat heading into the Australian Grand Prix.

The Mercs again dominated on the opening day in Australia, and Lewis Hamilton firmed in the market after a white-hot practise session.

We hate to say it, but it will be a huge mountain to climb for every other driver at the Australian Grand Prix, and we even think Valtteri Bottas will find it difficult to overcome teammate Lewis Hamilton.

We are anticipating another by-the-numbers Grand Prix to kick off the season, and unfortunately it looks like an Englishman will be the conqueror of Australia once again.
