The drivers have returned from their summer breaks and are getting set to go racing at the Belgian Grand Prix. Max Verstappen goes into final nine races of the season with an 80-point lead at the top of the championship to Charles Leclerc, but what are his odds of extending that lead this weekend?

The odds for the win

Verstappen is the favourite for this weekend’s race and is on a run of two consecutive victories, having won in France and Hungary before the summer break, while he won last year's rain-shortened Spa race as well.

The odds for who will be fastest in qualifying

Verstappen did qualify on pole here last year – but despite having taken just three poles to Charles Leclerc’s seven in 2022, he is the favourite to be the fastest qualifier this weekend. Leclerc is right behind him again though, having been on pole here back in 2019.

Verstappen has finished on the podium in 10 out of the 13 races this season, and has stood on the rostrum three previous times at Spa. He is the favourite to once again achieve this feat ahead of championsip rival Leclerc.

Lewis Hamilton is the third favourite to finish on the podium this weekend and is a run of five consecutive top-three finishes

The odds for the fastest lap

With every point key in the championship battle and the midfield contest so close, many teams will have their eye on getting the extra point for the fastest lap. Verstappen is once again the favourite to achieve this, while Russell – who is still the only driver in the top six of the championship yet to achieve a fastest lap – is fifth in the odds.

Could one of George Russell or Carlos Sainz get the fastest lap this weekend?

What are the odds for which team will take the most points?

Red Bull are the narrow favourites to get the most points this weekend over Ferrari, having done so in France and in Hungary, although Mercedes are a close third, having shown a remarkable consistency in recent races.

No team has taken a one-two since Red Bull did so in Baku. Could Spa see one of those three teams achieve that this weekend, or could we see a surprise from one of the midfield teams?
