The British Grand Prix has a rich history, being held annually in the United Kingdom since 1946. It is a 52 lap race, with Carlos Sainz emerging as the winner in the previous season, beating out Max Verstappen.
However, Sainz is not considered the favorite going into this year’s race. According to Vegas odds, Max Verstappen is the frontrunner with -334 odds to win outright. Verstappen has been in excellent form, extending his win streak to 5 with a victory at the Austrian Grand Prix. With 42 career wins and 26 pole appearances, he is certainly a force to be reckoned with and has recently signed an extension with Red Bull until 2028.
Verstappen’s Red Bull teammate, Sergio Perez, is ranked second in terms of outright win odds and will be partnering with Verstappen to secure a team victory for Red Bull.
Lewis Hamilton, who holds the record for the most British Grand Prix victories with 8, will be looking to add to his tally and reach 9 titles. While he hasn’t secured a win since the 2021 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, Hamilton remains a formidable competitor and will be aiming for the top spot.
Charles Leclerc, driver for Ferrari, is another contender to watch out for, with +1400 odds to win outright. He had a strong performance last season, finishing second overall behind Verstappen in the world drivers championship. With 5 wins and 19 pole positions in Formula One, Leclerc is poised to make his mark in the British Grand Prix.
Overall, this year’s race promises to be an exciting battle between these top drivers, each vying for a chance to claim victory in the British Grand Prix.
