Webber 10/1 for Title after Monaco Win
The Australian in the Red Bull controlled the Monaco GP from pole to add yet another winner to the 2012 roll of honour.
Mark Webber won on the streets of Monte Carlo for the second time in three years to move firmly into contention for the Drivers’ Championship. Fernando Alonso narrowly leads the way on 76 points after sneaking a podium spot in third and is 7/2 (bodog) to be champion.
Sebastian Vettel (3/1 Skybet) finished fourth and is now tied on 73 points with his Red Bull team-mate who is still comparatively undervalued at a best price of 10/1 with Betfred. The Australian led from pole to become the sixth different winner in six races of this extraordinary Formula 1 season - a new record.
Lewis Hamilton finished fifth as part of a train of cars that bunched up as the chequered flag approached. The 2008 champion is still 3/1 (Ladbrokes) to finish 2012 on top despite trailing in fourth with 63 points. It was another terrible day for the second McLaren, belonging to Jenson Button, who has drifted to 12/1 (WilliamHill) after his retirement in Monaco.
Nico Rosberg kept his hopes alive by coming home second in this most glamorous of Grand Prix. The German Mercedes driver has 59 points and is 16/1 (Boylesports) for the title.
