Belgian F1 Betting Tips 2017 | Team-mate rivalries will intensify in later part of season

We’re back to F1 on last weekend August and for this Belgian F1 Betting Tips 2017 we discuss team-mates fall-out following the Hungarian GP, plus whether the cracks are starting to show and if Max Verstappen can cope with the pressure of being Formula One’s rising star.

It’s the longest break on the 2017 calendar, but before we look at the coming race in Belgium let’s see how the season has panned out so far.

Haliton still hit and miss

It’s been a turbulent season of surprises so far for almost every team. In Hungary we would have expected to see Lewis Hamilton take an easy win after the performance he put in at Silverstone, where the Brit was in a league of his own. But like the season has shown us it doesn’t seem to work that way.

The dramatic incline of Eau Rouge still captivates drivers and fans alike.

In Budapest the Ferrari’s were the cars on form with Lewis not even competing with his team mate Valtteri Bottas. Sebastian Vettel took pole with Kimi Raikkonen taking a close second, making it an all Ferrari front line leaving the Mercedes to pickup third and forth.

Ferrari’s prancing pace

The start saw Vettel cut off his team-mate Kimi to keep the lead going into the first corner. Hamilton was slow to start and was overtaken by Max Verstappen, who by lap two managed to take his team mate out of the race by breaking late going into the corner and hitting Ricciardo’s side. The damage made him the young Dutchman spin out after the next corner. He was heard to say oh dear that was not very sporting (or words to that effect) and when Max came round again was seen to give him the two-finger salute!

Fernando Alonso gave a good performance in a car that has spent most of its time broken by the side of the track. After a good grid position in sixth he had a very exiting race with Perez and Sainz to finish in the same position on the line. Let’s hope he can keep it up forthe rest of the season.

Late in the race Vettel seemed to have trouble keeping his car in a straight line. The team informed him to “keep off the kerbs” as it was making it worse. It was obvious Raikkonen was the fastest of the two Ferrari’s, but Seb is number one in the team. Raikkonen was brought into the pits before it was required and was not at all happy. He had to sit behind Vettel till they crossed the line. Bottas was told to move over for Hamilton as he thought he could catch Sebastian, and when the Brit didn’t he slowed down and let Bottas take the place back. Lets hope Lewis doesn’t live to regret that one.

Spa-Francorchamps is a purest drivers racing track that blends some of the most demanding sectors of any track in the world with some of the longest, high-speed straights.

Tyre wear is moderate in Spa so expect to see most drivers on 2-3 stops. Kimi has always excelled in Belgium and we’re tipping both the Finn and championship leader Vettel to continue with this record. Given Renault’s woes it’s unlikely to see Red Bull being able to compete this weekend and we could even see the like of force India and Williams take advantage of the situation. Mercedes have equally done well over the past couple of years with Hamilton and Nico Rosberg winning 2015 and 2016 races, but my money is on Ferrari coming up with the good yet again.

casinopop mobile

We’re always looking for new and interesting themed casino’s that give customers that extra wow factor. Well this time I think we’ve hit the jackpot with CasinoPop. This pop art themed casino site with its classic 50’s style is certainly a break from the norm. But is it all frills and no knickers? We got our best retro diva on the case to put it through its paces.

CasinoPop Bonus and Promotions

Up to £600 Bonus Ladder + 100 free spins
or One-Time 200% Bonus + 100 free spins
Level Bar boost of 70%
£10k Aloha Party + VIP trip to Hawaii
Win XBox One or Ray-Bans with popTicket

You rarely find a casino site that not only offers one, but two offers to choose from. For players who enjoy multi-bonus deals then why not try CasinoPop’s Quadruple Bonus deal up to an impressive £600 plus 100 free spin on top of that.

125% First deposit up to £125 + 100 spins
75% Second deposit up to £150

200% Final fourth deposit up to £100

casinopop casinoPlayers who are more frugal with their dough can take advantage of option 2, which is a 200% Single Bonus of up to £75 plus 100 free spins. If you’re planning on sticking around for a while we’d suggest you capitalise on option 1, but double your money for short-term players should be ignored either.

 

The wagering requirement needed before punters can withdraw any money can be confusing and varies depending on what percentage bonus you have. So here’s a breakdown of the wagering multiplier needed before the deposit and bonus sum can be withdrawn.

Whilst we appreciate wagering avoids cash-n-grab players, 45x wagering on any bonuses over 150% is a bit harsh so we’d suggest you stick with the first 3x deposits.

As well as all this regular players are rewarded the more they deposit and play with loyalty points. Every time you level-up on your point you can receive the free spins, pop tickets with big prizes and even real money that you can take out, no strings attached.

Well you’d hope that with all the time spent on designing a cracking casino site that Casino-Pop has a vast catalogue of games to choose from and we were not disappointed. Touting over 300 titles they have a fantastic mix of titles that should please even the picky of players.

Login and sign up are directly in front of you once the page loads and registration is a breeze even on your phone.

Casino Pop’s game selection platform is also really impressive. The homepage gives you a selection of recommended titles from the games you have previously played or why not try some of the hottest slot games that are currently trending. You can quickly and easily swipe across to find even more titles and we were astonished at how fluid everything worked, clearly a lot of work has gone into the back-end by the web developers to ensure this site plays without any lag or jitter what so ever.

The menu and search bar is also conveniently tucked away in the top left-hand corner to avoid getting in the way of the user experience and a quick tap of the menu icon and it a full menu system slides across from the left with every option you could need from a full choice of game to a list of promotions which we discussed previously.

Gameplay

So i’m sure you’re more interested in gameplay right? Well Casino Pop does not disappoint here either. By using some of the biggest slot and casino names in the industry such a NetEnt, Quickspin and Microgaming the software platforms work without breaking a sweat and utilise the very latest HTML5 tech, meaning you get maximum interaction with no loss of performance.

CasinoPop mobile may no have the widest range of payment options available to customers, but they do include the major players in the banking industry which includes: VISA, Mastercard, Trustly, Neteller, Skrill and Paysafe Card.

Withdrawal times are fairly standard with most bank transfers taking 3 days but this can increase to 5 working days. But most eWallet transactions can take less time between 24-48 hours. Just be sure that you have met your wagering requirements before requesting any withdrawals to avoid any disappointment.

Our Verdict

Newbie casino sites always have a huge mountain to climb with trying to get noticed as well as competing with the big players which have been around, in some case decades. But with that said CasinoPop Casino knocks it out of the park with its fresh ultra modern design but with a unique retro pop feel to it.

We were particularly surprised by the two option bonus deal on sign-up which suits both big spending punters and value players. Overall I believe this site has a lot of staying-power and a force to be reckoned with in the casino-relm.

Bet365 Edit Bet | Add, Swap & Remove Selection | Screenshot Guide

bet365 edit bet

Ever had a 5-fold acca fail on the last game and it was down to a key player being out due to injury, sound familiar?

Well it looks like the Bet365 boffins have come to the rescue with a new feature that stops you from tearing your hair out next time Bale’s on the bench. The Bet365 Edit Bet feature lets you add, remove or even swap selections on unsettled pre-match and in-play bets. Not only that but it’s so simple even you’re nan could do it.

So what is Bet365 Edit Bet?

You can edit any bet that allows you to cash-out and it’s available on all games that have yet to be settled, or whether the outcome of the bet is yet to be completed. This makes it great for punters that place accumulator bets, as it allows you to make any changes to your slip on any games that haven’t ended.

how to edit bet with bet365How to edit your bet with Bet365 Quickstart Guide

1. If you haven’t done so already you need to have a Bet365 account. New customers can take advantage of their huge 100% Bonus up to £200 on your first deposit.
2. Go to My Bets on the top right-hand side of the homepage.
3. Select the bet slip you want to edit.
4. Click on Edit Bet at the top-right of the betting slip.
5. To remove a bet click on the X icon.
6. To swap a bet click on the left-right arrows icon and click on the game/odds you want to replace.
7. To add a bet simply click on the + icon at the bottom of the slip.
8. Note that your odds/new stake amount will have changed, be sure to check this before proceeding. If not you can click on cancel to keep your original odds.
9. Once you have finished click on Save Changes and you’re good to go.

Bet365 Edit Bet does come with a catch!

Be aware that any changes your bet will result in an update to the latest odds which may be less than the prices initially taken.

The only downside to changing your bet that we’ve found is that your new stake will be equal to the cash out value of the bet which is generally less, so changes to your bet do come at a cost.

In our Definitive guide to Cash Out Betting, we discuss that cost to the punter for taking cash out valuations which are just a fraction of the original stake placed.

The only time where the cash out value does not apply is when a selection is added to the bet and the original selections are still pre-match with no changes to the odds, as a result the new stake will be the same as the original one. Or if the user changes the type of bet and the cash out value cannot be divided equally out.

For a full list of terms and conditions to using the edit bet feature, please refer to Bet365 site.

With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility

The question you need to ask yourself is whether the bookmakers are providing too much freedom for punters to change their bets on the fly. I mean how many times will you end up swapping your bets before the first game even starts, talk about purgatory. What would annoy me even more is if I were to change a bet and find out it went the other way back to my original stake.

Our Verdict

Personally I’m not a big fan of these new features that allow punters to swap and change or even cash out as they come at the expense of the gamblers with either significantly reduced odds or a cash out value that’s equal to the original stake in the first place, so where’s the value in that?

That said it is a decent feature to have for accumulator bets, especially for horse/dog racing. God knows the number of times i’ve had a hag out due to injury which scuppering a decent acca win, but in my opinion the edit bet with bet365 should be used as an option of last resort.

Spinland Casino Review | Breaking the Rules

spinland casino

Is it just me or has the quality of the latest slots and casino sites gone up another level. A perfect example of this has to be our latest review Spinland Casino. This site has everything you could need all on the homepage and is presented in a welcoming modern theme. It’s operated by Imperium Network Solutions who have a strong reputation in the industry for fair-play.

spinland casinoSo we got one of our minion’s lets us give you the grand tour of this pretty darn cool casino and let you decide for yourself.

Spinland Casino Bonus and Promotions

200% Welcome Bonus up to £3000 + 50 spins
Reload Bonuses of £500 + 150 spins
Win a dream holiday – Safari in Africa
Monthly prize draws

Well Spinland Casino wants to grab your attention from the moment you enter the site, with their incredible 200% welcome bonus on your first deposit up to a staggering £3000, plus they’ll chuck in a 50 free spins to boot. We’ve complied a table so you can see how much you can receive.

If you haven’t got that much money up front then fear not! As Spinland also have a decent 50% second deposit bonus of £250 plus 100 Spins on Wild Wild West and an impressive third 100% match bonus up to £250 and a further 50 Spins on Reel Rush. That’s a combined value of £500 and 150 free spins, enough to get you going anyway.

Bonuses credited to players accounts are subject to a 35x wagering requirement, before it can be converted to your cash balance. Which isn’t bad and is just slightly higher than the average value.

I have to admit aside from the initial triple deposit bonus that’s pretty much it, which is slight disappointing if you’re planning on sticking round for a while. In my opinion if you’re going to indulge in wagering then there’s no reason why you can’t have regular bonuses each week for the die-hard punters that play day-in day-out.

Games and Jackpots

spinlandcasinoWell Spinland Casino aren’t short of games to play that’s for sure! It’s jam-packed with some of the latest titles including Wild Jane, Beautiful Bones and even the hilarious Naked Gun.

There are more titles here to play than there’s enough hours in the day.

Spinland Mobile Features

I was particularly impressed with the general site layout as the standard is extremely high. Everything has it’s place and you can easily find the game you’re looking for using the search bar or if you fancy something new you can quickly select New Games which will give you the very latest releases.

The touch UX was pretty awesome and game scrolling was smooth and allowed you to quickly scroll through hundreds of games in a couple of seconds. Server response time was also extremely fast with instant response to user icon interaction and new pages downloading almost instantly.

Gameplay

Gameplay is really sick and runs without even breaking a sweat using the latest HTML5 libraries. We really tried to push it running a few other apps on our desktop and mobile thinking the internet browser would take less priority on processing data but provided your using the latest Safari, Firefox or Chrome web browsers it should affect you one bit.

Loading times are fairly standard as with most flash-based platforms, you generally have to wait between 15-20 seconds for any slot/casino table to load on your browser. But once loaded gameplay latency is minimal with little to no lag or jitter that we could find.

Payment Methods & Withdrawal

Being a modern site they have a whole host of ways to make your first deposit which include: VISA, Mastercard, Trustly, Giropay, Sofort, Paysafe card, Dotpay, Skrill, Neteller, Bank transfer.

Withdrawal times are fairly standard and take 3-5 days for eWallets, credit/debit cards and bank transfers.

The signup bonuses alone make it worth a visit if you’re a savvy punter that flips sites to take advantage of offers. The site is simply sublime and infuses a heavily complex gaming platform on an effortless high-res, hi spec theme.

But hey don’t take our word for it, just head over to Spinland Casino for yourself and see what all the fuss is about. We’re confident you will not be disappointed and it’s no reason that our editor has made Spinland our Casino Site of the Month for July.

Hungarian GP Betting Tips 2017 | Hamilton levels the score

hungary gp f1 betting tips 2017

If you would have asked me at the start of the season that not only would we have have the top two drivers separated by a single point and third place man with just a full race win away from the top, I would have snatched your hand-off.

Bottas to win the WDC NOW 14/1 – Bet365

But that’s exactly where we are and it must have hit Lewis hard going into the last race the epic challenge ahead. With a four-times champion going wheel to wheel and in some cases beating the Brit on more than one occasion this year.

Not only that but you also have a new team-mate who has already won two races this season and is building in confidence with every race. I’m sure Hamilton enjoys the challenge and rivalry but i’m sure he wasn’t expecting either Vettel or Bottas to be as strong and competitive this season.

Hamilton gains ground on Vettel

Lewis lay down the gauntlet in Silverstone by dominating the entire weekend and laying his stake that the title is no where near over. But some outstanding performances from both Ferrari drivers are indicating that the Maranello team have more aces up their sleeve than their German counter-parts.

Verstappen made it hard work for Seb to overtake.

In fact by looking at qualifying performances you can see just how close Ferrari have gained grounds on Mercedes with Kimi and Vettel narrowing the gap from an average of 0.4secs at the start of the season to 0.2secs.

Beware the Flying Fin

No one really expected it, but Valtteri Bottas has had an exceptional start to the season. He’s kept his head down and got on with the job which has saw the Fin get on the podium for seven out of ten races. It’s stats and consistency like that can give you this drivers title.

So this weekend we’re at a personal favourite of mine which is the Hungarian GP. It’s had some exceptional race over the years from Mansell picking up his only driver title to Damon Hill’s Iconic move on Schumacher in the Arrows, to Jenson Button getting his first driver win.

Bottas has finish on the podium for the last four races

The Hungarian track is an extremely tight, intricate, technical track which can catch some teams out with tyre wear. Strong Aero packages are a must with long sweeping bends and multiple chicanes that follow each other, you certainly have to attack this course or you’ll be sat in the middle of the grid come Sunday.

Ferrari to me look to have a more complete package but i’m concerned where Seb’s head is following the shunt incident and he doesn’t appear to have the momentum he had four races ago.

Lew loves Hungary

Lewis tops the all-time leader board of 5 race wins at Hungary and with a dominating performance in the previous race there’s nothing stopping him extend this to six. His team-mate on the other hand look to be the only threat and we’ve seen in previous races the Fin beating Hamilton on numerous occasions to take pole position.

In my opinion this is where Bottas will start to press for title while not have the pressures associated with expecting to win it. Valtteri Bottas certainly has the pace and equal package to Hamilton so we’re backing the Fin this weekend to continue with a decent run of form.

British GP Review 2017 | Hamilton capitalises on Ferrari miss-fortune

british gp review 2017

When his back’s against the wall, there’s no better driver on the grid who can deliver as Hamilton. Such was his dominance throughout the entire weekend. In this week’s British GP Review 2017 we discuss how Lewis maximised this weekend’s points to get within a point of Vettel, plus we discuss just where Ferrari got it wrong.

In qualifying Lewis has almost half a second ahead of the next best driver and during the race he took full advantage of his position to take the chequered flag. He now levels both Jim Clarke and Alan Prost with 5 wins at Silverstone.

Lightning strikes twice for Ferrari

But it was twice as rewarding for Hamilton to see championship leader Sebastian Vettel stuck behind the rear of Max Verstappen’s Red Bull, which gave both the Brit and Valtteri Bottas a clear run and put the Mercedes drivers comfortably in-front.

british gp review 2017
Ferrari’s bet on pit-stops backfires for Vettel.

In contrast Vettel had a mare of a race, getting bogged-down from the off and losing a place to his team-mate Raikkonen and Verstappen by the fourth corner. To make matters worse, just two laps before the end, Seb had a front-left tyre failure which saw the German drop from third to seventh. It summed up Vettel’s weekend and saw his lead contract significantly to just one point in the championship ahead of rival Hamilton.

In similar fashion Raikkonen was dealt a similar fate where the Fin looked comfortable to take second place but tyre failure again the lap before Vettel pushed the Fin back to pick up the last spot on the podium to third place.

Mad Max makes it back

Christen Horner must have breathed a huge sigh of relief as wonder-kid Max Verstappen crossed the line to take a respectable fourth place. It was in part due to both Ferrari’s hitting trouble towards the end, but Max will be pleased to have at least completed the race as his last 5 race s resulted in retirements in one way or another.

Overall the Red Bull team did a decent job of mixing things up at the front, hampering Vettel’s attempts to keep-up with his team-mate and Hamilton before the first round of pit-stops.

All square between rivals

So at the halfway point of the season it’s all square between Hamilton vs Vettel with just one point separating the two and given the performance of both drivers and the heated temperament of Vettel in Baku, it’s only likely to intensify in the second-half of this season.

Valtteri Bottas’ incredible recent performance, picking two wins this season and keeping a decent run of form has put the Fin just 23-points behind Vettel. If he continues to stay out of trouble and gradually close the gap on the leader we could see the Fin getting in the mix for this year’s title.

Given his form and confidence, not to mention no pressure to win the title, Bottas would be a real decent option to bet for winning the 2017 crown.

British GP Betting Tips 2017 | Bottas proves title-fights not a 2-horse race

For this weeks British GP betting tips 2017 we discuss the meteoric rise of Bottas and whether the Fin stands a chance of winning the championship. Plus we discuss two driver in Hamilton and Max Verstappen to discuss just what on earth is going on with either drivers run of luck to date.

Fin-tastic Performance

Austria gave a clear indication that this years championship is not as clear cut two-horse as everyone believes. Indeed Valtteri Bottas’ impetuous determination has seen the Fin quickly gain ground in raw pace over his team-mate Lewis Hamilton to put him within arms reach of joining the title-fight. A win here at Silverstone will certainly cermet his chances of scrapping it out with Vettel and Hamilton.

Such was the dominance of Bottas that even the Ferrari of Sebastian Vettel couldn’t get near enough to the back of the silver arrows towards the end of the race and all eyes were focused on the tussle betwwen Ricciardo fending of Hamilton for the final third spot on the podium.

Bottas proves he has what it takes to win the title.

Hamilton in Limbo

Not a lot could be said for Valtteri’s team-mate Hamilton who appears to be in limbo at the moment. Lewis was given a 5 place penalty after qualifying, but even without the penalty the Brit was unable to compete with the pace of both Bottas and Vettel. He’s now 20-points adrift from Seb and doesn’t look to be in the right mindset to claw it back from the German.

Similar to last year Hamilton head appears to have dropped just at the wrong point in the championship were he needs to pull the points defect back from his rival – before its too late.

What is going on with Max?

It’s hard to believe that at the end of last season Max Verstappen was regarded as the next Senna or Schumacher. But this year the driver has retired in 5 of the last 7 races – incredibly sobering stats for the Dutchman. Luck has played its part due to collisions with other drivers that may not have been the drivers fault, but the Red Bull driver who was hailed for his brave over-taking antics last year may not be as lucky this year with similar moves.

british gp betting tips 2017
Kvyat, Alonso and Verstappen all make contact into the first corner.

Confidence will have hit the Dutchman given his recent run of form and I think Max need to avoid any incidents on the track that will exasperate the situation further to get his season back-on-track.

Best of British

I may be biased you can’t get a better weekend race than at the British Grand Prix. The Silverstone track has it all with the iconic sweeping bends of Maggots and Beckett’s to the hairpins of Brookland’s and Luffield, this track has it all for a driver.

Tyre wear is generally moderate following Silverstone’s re-design back in 2010 so expect to see most drivers on a two-stop strategy.

Ferrari have always performed well here and Silverstone is more about balance of the car rather than sheer speed so I’m expecting to see Seb pull-out a decent shift.

Valtteri Bottas clearly has the pace and confidence going into this weekend and there’s nothing stopping him from picking up another podium place and should hopefully keep Vettel on his toes throughout.

Redbull are always clipping the back heels of the top two teams but I think it will be difficult for both drivers to keep-up with the might of Mercedes and Ferrari so i’m not expecting to see much from Max or Ricciardo.

Austrian GP Betting Tips 2017 | Title-fight Heats Up

austrian gp betting tips 2017

In this weeks Austrian GP betting tips 2017 we break-down what went on between Hamilton and Vettel which lead them clashing on the track. We also discuss just how Ricciardo and Valtteri Bottas got it so right to come from the back of the grid to grabbing 1-2 after the chequered flag, plus give you our heads-up on who looks a decent punt in Austria.

When two-champs Collide

The double-shunt between Vettel and Hamilton will go down as the moment this years championship turned nasty. Up to that point Lewis had a perfect race, getting off the grid well and opening a gap up by 3.3 seconds. But a couple of incidents such as the contact between Bottas and Raikkonen lead to three safety cars in the first period.

The infamous moment Vettel loses his cool.

It was on the third safety car where the race was about to re-start where Lewis began to back-up the pact which he’s entitled to do. Sebastian had misjudged Hamilton slowing down and ran straight into the back of the Brit.

Vettel see’s Red

In a knee-jerk reaction the German pulls alongside Hamilton and lifts both hands in the air to signal he’s not happy with Hamilton reducing his speed. In doing this Vettel’s Ferrari drift to the right and collides with Hamilton’s Mercedes to the shock of everyone watching the race. To be fair to Seb I do not think the side-swipe was intentional and his emotions got the better of him.

It resulted in the German receiving a 10 second penalty in the pits and damaging both drivers chance of winning the race. Interestingly it not put Vettel just 3 penalty points from missing a race should any incidents happen again.

Taking the Bull by the Horns

Aside from that hats off goes to Daniel Ricciardo who drove a stellar race. Not only did he drop back to sixteenth place after a tyre change due to picking up some debris from Bottas accident with Kimi. But the Aussie made some serious moves and gained ground during each of the safety cars restarts which put him right up there and capitalised when Hamilton had to pit due to a loose headrest and Vettel had the 10 second penalty. It was an emphatic win for the Aussie and the first for Red Bull this season.

 

Spielberg has some beautiful and dramatic backdrops.

So anyway onto this weekends race and Austrian GP is a heavily technical track which doesn’t necessarily benefit from raw horse-power. Decent aero packages are critical on this track and will give some of the mid-pack teams a chance to clip at the heels of the front-runners.

Being on Red Bull home soil I’m expecting to see a couple of upgrades and given Daniels momentous achievement in Baku, I’m confident he’s going to take it with him to this weekends race. Vettel has been know to lose his cool in the past (remember Multi-21 between Webber and the German?) and following that he was a bit off the boil so I’m not expect to see much from Ferrari who’ll be licking their wounds.

On any other race-day Valtteri Bottas would have got driver of the day in Baku, such was the high-caliber of drives in Azerbaijan. But the Fin seems to have gained in confidence and looks more settled in the team and will be hoping to add I feel he stands a decent chance of repeating his efforts of the last race.

Force India look to have a strong aero package and this track could favour them so don’t be surprised to see both drivers picking up points.

European GP 2017 Review | Vettel’s red mist shunt with Ham

Vettel looses his cool in Baku

Azerbaijan could see a turning point in the 2017 F1 season. Are we going back to the bad old days? we all remember the scandals in certain teams that saw the departure of their team principal’s and certain drivers who thought it acceptable to win by any means. We know who they were and now we have Sebastian Vettel, what he did to Lewis Hamilton deserved a black flag and a one race ban, so what did he get, a 10 second penalty. To make it worse he goes round saying “what did I do?”

Tale of two Fin’s

Now back to Baku where Mercedes driver Valtteri Bottas had a first lap crash with Kimi Raikkonen. This put Bottas to the back of the field and left Raikkonen suffering with a damaged car. It also saw Carlos Sainz spin, though he did recover and continue to the end. Joylen Palmer continued with his run of bad luck to have his engine fail on the 8th lap. Both Verstappen and Kvyat both out in the 13th, Max has had a terrible run of bad luck this season.

On lap nineteen under a safety car just as the race is about to restart, Vettel hits the rear end of Lewis car and then goes along side and drives into the side, this would be classed as road rage on the streets.

Raikkonen and Perez were both out on the 21st lap, but both rejoined in the 22nd lap due to the race being red flagged due to debris on the track. This allowed the teams to repair the cars. Both Massa and Hulkenberg were out on lap 27, which is a pity for Massa as he was running well at that point.

At this point Lewis still looked like he could easily win the race, but one fault we have never saw before was his headrest came loose and he was seen driving one handed holding the part with his other arm. His team was ordered to pit him for a new headrest. He came out behind Vettel and stayed there to the end of the race.

Well there was good things to come out of this race. Valtteri Bottas coming from the back of the grid to finishing second in the race was a fantastic achievement for the Fin. Daniel Ricciardo’s was smiling even more than usual following a roller-coaster race starting way down the grid but only to finish winning. But the driver of the day deservedly went to Lance Stroll, the Canadian driving for Williams drove an incredible race to finish an emphatic thrid and well earn podium place for everyone in the team.

Must quickly mention Fernando Alonso not only finished the race but got the first points of the season “Go Fernando”!

Casino RedKings Review | King raises the stakes even higher

Our Verdict

If there was an award for simple and minimalistic design then RedKings would win hands down. This casino site has everything you need within reach, without clogging up the entire homepage. The welcome bonuses are pretty decent but noting near to some of the bigger brands.

That said they will double your money on all three deposits which many are moving away from, at best you could get 50% so they’re certainly generous with their multiplier bonus amount. Overall Casino RedKings mobile is a quick decent site that’s not afraid to give the big-boys a run for their money so why not get stuck in!
