Monaco vs Fastest lap by Jamesington

With Vettel's Red Bull being near totally dominant come raceday this season we must look elsewhere to, hopefully, obtain something like value.

The two main challengers to the current Champ are likely to be Fernando Alonso who has had a brilliant practice day today and Vettel's closest rival in the Championship Leaderboard - Lewis Hamilton. Both are available at good value prices.

With Alonso setting the pace for much of today's practice session, being beaten by Hamilton eventually, it would seem these guys have what it takes - if provided with a car which is fully functional - to challenge the Red Bull drivers (whose cars are not as reliable as might be expected).

With both Vettel and Webber suffering KERS difficulties last week and Webber's seeming to be simply non-operational in practice sessions so far I reckon Monaco, where a good driver is what will win a race, could be the track where Red Bull's dominance is challenged.

As I indicated in my Qualifying tip, I think Hamilton and Alonso will provide the biggest challenge to Sebastian Vettel and at very good prices we must take the value on offer and following last week's race where despite a Vettel win Hamilton had the fastest lap - I reckon we could cash in on the Fastest Lap market.

There is no reason to doubt the ability of Vettel to perform in Monaco though, other than he has yet to notch a win here. With this in mind there is good value available on Seb to get the hat-trick, Pole Position, Fastest Lap AND Race Winner at odds of 10.0 with Skybet. Bear in mind that Monaco is a track where overtaking is incredibly difficult so if Vettel does grab pole then it is likely we will see him go on to win the race and in turn he must have a good shot at the fastest lap.
