If not for a rough race to open the season in Bahrain and an early exit from the Australian GP, Verstappen might be way out in front in the F1 standings. The defending F1 World Drivers’ Champion is tops on the leaderboard after finishing third at last weekend’s Monaco Grand Prix, which served as his fourth consecutive podium finish after winning three straight races prior to that.
As such, the Dutchman is the betting favorite at Azerbaijan, though it’s not a race where he’s found loads of success. Verstappen crashed out from first last year and retired early in both 2017 and 2018. His best showing came in 2019 when he finished fourth behind Valtteri Bottas, Lewis Hamilton, and Sebastian Vettel.
Leclerc just missed out on the podium in Monaco, finishing in fourth place. The Ferrari star is within striking distance of Verstappen on the overall F1 standings thanks to his outstanding start to the season and is fetching favorable odds to win in Azerbaijan.
He’ll see if he can bounce back after failing to reach the podium despite having pole position at his home race in Monaco.
Verstappen’s Red Bull teammate came away with his first victory of the 2022 racing season at the Monaco Grand Prix. Prior to that, can you guess when he last won on the F1 circuit? That’s right, the 2021 Azerbaijan Grand Prix.
With another win, Perez could usurp Leclerc on the F1 standings and join Verstappen to form a dominant 1-2 punch for Red Bull Racing.

This means that you would need to bet $175 to win $100 on Hamilton winning the race.
