The odds for the win

Red Bull have won the last six races and Max Verstappen enters this weekend as the favourite having won five of those. After winning the 70th Anniversary Grand Prix here in 2020, he's seeking a maiden British Grand Prix victory.

  • Max Verstappen 1.90
  • Charles Leclerc 3.25
  • Sergio Perez 10.0
  • Carlos Sainz, George Russell, Lewis Hamilton 13.0
  • Fernando Alonso, Lando Norris, Valtteri Bottas 151
  • Daniel Ricciardo, Pierre Gasly 301
  • Esteban Ocon, Lance Stroll, Sebastian Vettel 601
  • Alex Albon, Kevin Magnussen, Mick Schumacher, Nicholas Latifi, Yuki Tsunoda, Zhou Guanyu 901

The odds for who will be fastest in qualifying

Leclerc has been in supreme qualifying form this season, with the Ferrari driver having taken pole position for six out of the nine races so far, and the odds have him as the favourite to take top spot on the qualifying timesheets for the seventh time this weekend. He is closely followed by Verstappen – who did qualify on pole in Canada when Leclerc was hit by grid penalties – and Perez.

And Verstappen's waited a fair bit for a fastest lap, his last one coming in Miami, Round 6. The Dutchman is favourite to do it this time around...
