Fernando Alonso, Renault, Bahrain, 2006We took a look at the odds offered by five different bookies on the Malaysian Grand Prix and found that each one tipped Fernando Alonso to repeat his 2005 win. Interestingly 2005 title runner-up Kimi Raikkonen is considered more likely to win than Michael Schumacher, who led for longest in Bahrain.

The unusually competitive performances by several teams in Bahrain has made placing a bet on Formula One more rewarding than usual. Even Alonso is put at 3.3-1 to win by betandwin.com, while William Hill offer 26-1 on Brazilians Felipe Massa and Rubens Barrichello. Check the results for the top ten drivers in full below.
