What are the odds for Fastest Lap?

Max Verstappen, Lando Norris, Valtteri Bottas and most recently George Russell have scored Fastest Lap bonus points this season.

Fastest Lap often depends on who's brave enough to fit new tyres in a late stop and perfect a flying lap on low fuel at the end of the race, so there could be value here if you fancy a punt on one of the drivers with longer odds.
