I was lucky enough to place an ante-post wager on Lewis Hamilton in 2008 to win eight championships. He is now potentially within striking distance this year 2021 and his current best odds are 2-5 to win it. Afraid I've got cold feet cant cash-out as its not available but would like to achieve about £3K either way Win or Lose anybody any suggestions.
Tony, how about you wait until the first few races have been run and then place hedging bets on any other likely contenders just in case Hamilton doesn't win. You could leave it until late in the season but if someone else is up there the odds will be shorter. However, it would seem to me that your current bet can run on for a couple of years and may come good. I don't think Hamilton will retire yet unless he is injured or worse killed. The only other thing that would put him out of contention is a leapfrog in performance by another team. So its probably not make or break this season.
