Paddy Power: Silverstone

A difficult one to call, this. The momentum seems to be with Williams-BMW and Michelin, but Ferrari tested impressively at Silverstone and there seems to be a quiet confidence about Michael Schumacher going into Round 11

Paddy Power: Silverstone

One thing is certain, if your name is Schumacher, the odds are short right now. Michael is 2-1 to win the British GP, while Ralf is 3-1. Perhaps, then, it is time to look for a pendulum swing towards Juan Montoya (10-3) or Kimi Raikkonen (9-2). Or even, looking for a third British GP win, David Coulthard at 11-1. That looks to be the best 'outside' bet for a man in a competitive car, although Rubens Barrichello can be had at 12-1. But the Brazilian's form has been patchy of late.

Even Montoya thinks that Silverstone will be 'bloody hard' for Williams, at the same time pointing out that of the championship contenders, only Michael can afford a non-finish. Such things are rare, but if you put those factors together, perhaps an each way bet on Rubens at a fifth of the odds, is worth a look.

For pole position, I like the look of Kimi Raikkonen at 5-1, but you always have to bear in mind that we are in England and that there is every chance of rain. Bearing that in mind, perhaps load more odds on the Bridgestone runners, with rain a strong likelihood on Saturday.

At the time of writing, there were no quoted special forecast odds, but keep an eye out for them - a happy hunting ground of late given the Williams/Michelin form. This time, though, include Michael in the first two, permed with any combination of Raikkonen/Montoya/Ralf.

Joey Mawson made waves in the middle of the last decade, beating future Haas Formula 1 driver Mick Schumacher - among other highly-rated talents - to the 2016 German F4 title. A run in F1's feeder GP3 category only caused his career to stall, but now back in Australia Mawson's S5000 title success has set that to rights
