Paddy Power would love punters to wade into Alonso, Hamilton or anyone but Vettel right now, allowing them to keep there money in the bank, hence them not taking 'anymore' bets on Vettel.

Whether he wins it or not, all this is is a publicity stunt by Paddy Power.
They have very little to lose after offering sh1t odds, now they have free advertising.
BTW as Fernando said 'one race can put you back in the championship'

i wonder what is paddy power's liability for payouts on a vettel title? cos if vettel breaks a limb or develops some debilitating ailment we would have a great championship on our hands and paddy power would have another tax write off.

Button at 40/1 looks like it's worth a punt, he's only 16 behind Hamilton and starting second for Monaco tomorrow. Not to mention that he's great at tyre conservation, he just needs to stop gambling on silly long stints.
