    Ladbroke's spokesman Nick Weinberg said: "We had been sweating on this bet for a while. We survived last year, but there was a feeling that we had only put off the inevitable.

    "It's the largest single payout we've ever made on a motor sport wager and is just reward for this customer, who put his faith in Hamilton so long ago."

    I guess the lucky punter was extremely relieved after a very tense race I imagine :rock:
