The odds for the win

Following on a run of 10 wins in the opening 12 races, Verstappen is once again considered the huge favourite to take his 11th victory of the season – which would see him tie Sebastian Vettel’s record of nine successive wins.

His team mate, Sergio Perez, will be looking to notch his first victory since Azerbaijan, and he is the second favourite to claim the win this weekend ahead of seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton.

The odds for who will be fastest in qualifying

Verstappen has won from pole position in Zandvoort the last two seasons, and the odds see him as the favourite to start from the front of the grid this weekend. On this occasion, McLaren’s Lando Norris is seen as the likeliest challenger to the Dutch driver.

Hamilton and Charles Leclerc are the only two non-Red Bull drivers to take pole position this season, and while the Briton is third in the odds to do the same this weekend, the Ferrari driver is down in sixth behind Perez and Oscar Piastri.

Having finished in the top two in every race this season, Verstappen is seen as the favourite to stand on top of the rostrum once again this weekend, narrowly ahead of his team mate, Perez.

Norris and Hamilton are tied for third in the odds ahead of Leclerc, while Esteban Ocon – who finished on the podium in Monaco – is given an outside chance of finishing in the top three for the second time this season.

The odds for the fastest lap

Verstappen has set the fastest lap six times already this season and the odds see him as the most likely candidate to do the same this weekend. Hamilton – who took the fastest lap last time out in Belgium – is seen as the second favourite behind the Red Bull driver.

George Russell took the fastest lap at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix and he is given the fourth best odds to do the same this weekend, while Zhou Guanyu – who set the quickest time at the season-opener in Bahrain – is considered a long shot.
