Montreal is a city alive with entertainment this weekend. The Formula 1 World Championship returns to the city today, and racing fans are eagerly awaiting the race for the checkered flag. Sports bettors who accurately predict the outcome of the race may want to use some of their winnings to see the Rolling Stones, who continue their 50th anniversary tour inside the Bell Centre tonight.
Drivers spent the weekend in qualifying matches to vie for pole position in today’s main event of the Canadian Grand Prix. Current World Champion Sebastian Vettel claimed pole ahead of rival Lewis Hamilton in what gambling site forums predict will be a grueling head to head matchup between the current and former world champions.
Rounding out the top three heading into the race is Valtteri Bottas, who took racers and fans by surprise with his qualifying performance. Prior to the weekend in Montreal, Bottas failed to perform better than the 14th position in six races this year. However, the Finnish driver surprised the pundits who prematurely wrote him off by advancing to the top 10, and finishing third behind Vettel and Hamilton heading into the big race.
After the qualifying matches were finished, Bottas said he was proud to start in third in the Canadian Grand Prix main event.
“It’s way more than we could have imagined. The first six races have been so difficult. We got everything just right today.”
Fans who wish to get their money on the line for the big race will likely take a second look at Bottas. If the big three do finish the race high in the standings, local sports bettors can capitalize on the winnings and pay last minute to see one of the greatest rock n roll bands of all time.
