The odds for the win

They are so evenly matched in the championship, but this weekend Verstappen and Hamilton come to a circuit that is something of an unknown. This Grand Prix at Zandvoort is, of course, the first at the venue since 1985 and whoever wins here will become the 20th to do so at this circuit.

The odds for who will be fastest in qualifying

Verstappen now has double the amount of poles as Hamilton in 2021, with six to his rival's three so far this season. The Dutchman's latest pole was in Belgium, where Hamilton qualified third on the grid.

So where does that leave the championship protagonists in the fight for top in qualifying? Well, the odds say they're level, while shock front row starter at Spa George Russell is a long shot to go one better and take pole at Zandvoort...

And back in the British GP it was Sergio Perez who set the fastest lap, the Red Bull driver having been pulled into the pits late on to pull out a rapid tour of Silverstone and deny Hamilton an extra point.

  • Lewis Hamilton 3.00
  • Valtteri Bottas 5.00
  • Sergio Perez 6.00

  • Esteban Ocon, Sebastian Vettel 67.0
  • Antonio Giovinazzi, Fernando Alonso, Kimi Raikkonen, Lance Stroll, Yuki Tsunoda 101
  • Mick Schumacher, Nicholas Latifi, Nikita Mazepin 151

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

Seven points apart in the championship, Red Bull and Mercedes are joint-favourites to take the most points at Zandvoort.

The odds concerning McLaren and Ferrari are also equal, both teams on 26.0 with McLaren just three-and-a-half points ahead of Ferrari in the standings.

The odds look more kindly at Williams, however, after consecutive points scores for Nicholas Latifi and George Russell in Belgium and Hungary.

  • Red Bull, Mercedes 1.90
  • Ferrari, McLaren 26.0
  • AlphaTauri 41.0
  • Williams 67.0
  • Alpine, Aston Martin 101
  • Haas 151
  • Alfa Romeo 251

The odds for a Safety Car appearing during the race

A track that's new for most of the drivers means the odds a pretty short on the Safety Car appearing at some point during the Grand Prix.

  • Yes 1.40
  • No 2.75
