MONTE CARLO, Principality of Monaco: Championship leader Sebastian Vettel expects Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes to mount a qualifying fight-back to match his flying form for Ferrari in practice for Sunday's Monaco Grand Prix. The four-time champion threw down a gauntlet to his rivals in emphatic fashion by lapping almost half a second clear of the chasing pack in Thursday's second practice while Briton Hamilton struggled to finish more than a second adrift down in eighth. "I think they will find more tomorrow," said the German Vettel. "I was pretty happy with the afternoon, I thought I was a bit wild through the morning, touching barriers and stuff like that, but we still have some work to do. "It's more fun going faster here this year. It's only Thursday so it would be nice to do it again on Saturday (qualifying). "I was very happy with the first run this morning.

Scott Dixon is the favourite to win the 2017 Indianapolis 500 after qualifying in pole position. The New Zealander won starting from the front of the grid back in 2008, and after an excellent showing at qualifying he's 6-1 to win again on Sunday. He's narrowly ahead of Will Power and Formula One star Fernando Alonso in the bookies' eyes, with the pair close behind at 8-1. Read on for a look at some of the top sleeper contenders, but first, here are the latest odds, courtesy of OddsShark : JR Hildebrand, 30-1 Despite making the Fast Nine, J.R.

The 29-year-old infamously came within one turn of winning The Greatest Spectacle in Racing as a rookie in 2011, only to crash and finish second to Dan Wheldon. He may be yet to win a race in his career, but he has three consecutive top-10 finishes at Indianapolis and has improved year on year he came 10th in 2014, eighth in 2015 and sixth last time out.

MONACO: Lewis Hamilton lapped faster than ever at Monaco as the Mercedes driver and Ferrari's championship leader Sebastian Vettel set the pace in first practice for Formula One's showcase race on Thursday. The triple world champion, who can equal the 65 career pole positions of boyhood idol Ayrton Senna in Saturday's qualifying, topped the timesheets with a best lap of one minute 13.425 seconds on ultrasoft tyres. Vettel, a four times world champion with Red Bull who leads Hamilton by six points after five races, was second and a mere 0.196 slower than the Briton with a time of 1:13.621. Both men were inside Australian Red Bull driver Daniel Ricciardo's 2016 pole position time of 1:13.622 with Hamilton's the fastest yet around the metal-fenced harbourside street circuit. Hamilton did 40 laps, Vettel 34. The Ferrari driver is hoping to end his team's long drought in the most glamorous -- and slowest - race on the calendar with a first Ferrari win in the Mediterranean principality since Michael Schumacher in 2001.
