Who should you buy for the 2021 United States Grand Prix?
According to our Form Guide, this is Mercedes country, and they are expected to be the frontrunners here at COTA having clinched every pole position at this track since 2014 – while Lewis Hamilton has taken five wins here. However, as our Guide points out in some detail, it might not be as simple as expecting a Mercedes win this year.
It’s not as simple as picking either one of the championship protagonists for the US Grand Prix, either, as Valtteri Bottas ($23.3m) has struck a rich vein of form and could net you 10 extra points if he takes a fifth-consecutive top 10 finish thanks to his race streak.
Carlos Sainz ($14.5m), Lando Norris ($14.2m) and Sergio Perez ($18.2m) are also worth considering as they are all on race streaks. In fact, you could afford Bottas, Norris, Sainz, Perez, and Red Bull ($26.3m, also on a race streak) and have money left over for Mick Schumacher ($5.7m) for some extra points.
Finally, don’t forget to use your Mega Driver powerup before the end of the season. Perhaps Mexico, where Red Bull are expected to dominate, could be the place...
