RACE DEBRIEF

    It's time for the Monaco Grand Prix – but who will win the jewel in the crown of the Formula 1 calendar? 188BET have got the odds for the win, podium, qualifying winner and more for the first race in Monaco since 2019.

    188BET's odds are presented in decimal form: for every $1 wagered you would win the figure represented by the odds; so if Hamilton is favourite at 1.50, you would win $1.50 for every dollar bet.

    The odds for the win

    We've had three different winners in the last three Monaco Grands Prix: Lewis Hamilton in 2019, Daniel Ricciardo for Red Bull in 2018, and Sebastian Vettel for Ferrari in 2017.

    But the fans, and our Form Guide, expect a Red Bull vs Mercedes race. Furthermore, Max Verstappen finished second on the track here in 2019 but was hit with a penalty which dropped him to P4.

    It looks likely to be a close one and the odds definitely reflect that, but Hamilton is the favourite.

    • Lewis Hamilton 2.00
    • Max Verstappen 2.40
    • Valtteri Bottas 9.50
    • Sergio Perez 17.0
    • Charles Leclerc 21.0
    • Carlos Sainz, Daniel Ricciardo, Lando Norris 67.0
    • Pierre Gasly 101
    • Esteban Ocon, Fernando Alonso 301
    • Lance Stroll, Sebastian Vettel, Yuki Tsunoda, Antonio Giovinazzi, George Russell, Kimi Raikkonen, Mick Schumacher, Nicholas Latifi, Nikita Mazepin 901

    The odds for pole position

    Pole position is hugely significant in Monaco as passing cars on track is a tough task on these tight streets. Again, in the last three races, we've had three different pole-sitters: Hamilton for Mercedes in 2019, Ricciardo for Red Bull in 2018, and Raikkonen for Ferrari in 2017.

    Hamilton may have 100 pole positions thanks to his Spanish GP performance, but the Briton only has two poles in Monaco – matched by Ricciardo in that regard.

    Valtteri Bottas, his team mate, only missed out by pole by 0.086s in Monaco 2019 and Verstappen was just 0.036s off Hamilton in Spain.

    The odds for a podium finish

    Monaco can always spring a surprise and, as the midfield continues to converge on Red Bull and Mercedes, the race for the podium is less clear cut than one might think – even if Bottas, Verstappen and Hamilton have shared the podium more than any other trio in F1 history.

    The odds for fastest lap

    Hamilton, Bottas and – most recently, Verstappen – have all received the DHL Fastest Lap Award this season, but the last two fastest-lappers in Monaco have been Pierre Gasly for Red Bull in 2019 and Verstappen for the same squad in 2018.

    And in 2017? That was Perez, then racing for Force India. Now he is, of course, in the Red Bull alongside Verstappen.

    Yet Hamilton, whose last fastest lap bonus point was at Imola, is the favourite.
