Short odds on Schumacher for 2010 F1 title

Posted on | Author Keith Collantine

Michael Schumacher only announced his F1 comeback a few minutes ago but already bookmakers are giving him short odds to win the championship next year.

Paddy Power and Bet365 already have him at 5/1 to win the championship – much shorter odds than team mate Nico Rosberg, who’s at 10/1. William Hill have Schumacher at 6/1.

And if his Mercedes F1 car proves competitive in testing you can expect the odds on him winning the 2010 F1 title to get even shorter.

At this early stage Lewis Hamilton is the bookmakers’ favourite for next year’s title followed by Fernando Alonso.

Are you betting on Schumacher to add a record eighth title to his haul?
