What are the odds for the win?

With Lewis Hamilton on a four-race streak of victories currently, it’s no surprise to see him leading the betting here once again, while the Briton is a three-time winner in Bahrain.

Sebastian Vettel, meanwhile, is the most successful ever driver in Bahrain with four victories – and the German’s odds have shortened from 301 ahead of Istanbul to 67.0 for this weekend, helped in large part by his third place last time out in Turkey.

  • Lewis Hamilton 1.35
  • Valtteri Bottas 4.50
  • Max Verstappen 6.00

What are the odds for fastest in qualifying?

He may have earned his first career pole position at the Turkish Grand Prix two weeks ago, but Lance Stroll’s odds for a repeat this weekend are decidedly on the long side at 151, while Hamilton, despite not having taken pole position in the past two races, is the solid favourite.

Bear in mind, though, that it’s Valtteri Bottas who was the most recent Mercedes driver to take pole here back in 2017, with Hamilton not having claimed one in Bahrain since 2016.

  • Valtteri Bottas 3.25

What are the odds for a podium finish?

Daniel Ricciardo leads the pack of drivers nipping at the heels of the holy trinity of Hamilton, Bottas and Verstappen to take podium honours this weekend, the Australian’s odds marginally shorter than those of Charles Leclerc and (podiumist last time out) Sergio Perez.
