FORM GUIDE: Who are the favourites as F1 returns to the Nurburgring?

What are the odds for the win?

Lewis Hamilton is favourite once again with odds of 1.40 to win the race – and he's previously won here, in 2011. Sebastian Vettel is the last driver to have won a Grand Prix at the Nurburgring – having done so for Red Bull in 2013 – but his odds are a long 201.

Valtteri Bottas won the Russian Grand Prix at 4.50 and his odds are unchanged for this race, while Max Verstappen's odds have been slightly shortened from 6.00 to 5.50 after he split Bottas and Hamilton with P2 at Sochi.

But what if rain strikes? It is forecast for this weekend, and that could massively shake things up... is it time for a punt on someone bar Hamilton or Bottas to win?

  • Max Verstappen 5.50
  • Sergio Perez 51.0

If it rains, could Hamilton's quest for victory be thwarted by an underdog?

What are the odds for fastest in qualifying?

Mercedes maintained their 100% qualifying record as Hamilton took pole position in Russia and the Briton is firm favourite to clinch a home pole position for the Silver Arrows in Germany.

However, his odds have been slightly lengthened while Bottas's are down to 2.30 from 3.00 in Russia. Verstappen has edged closer to favourite status for pole position too as the Red Bull man was 9.00 to do so in Russia; he is now 5.50 to take pole position in Germany. Again, if rain strikes in qualifying, a shock could be on the cards...

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

Mercedes have scored healthily at every race this season and their favourites tag is clear here, but Red Bull are 4.50 to score the most points in Germany – slashed from 6.00 at the Russian Grand Prix. Racing Point, on the other hand, have odds of 34.0 this time compared to 26.0 last time out. McLaren may be ahead of Renault in the standings but Renault's recent resurgence is reflected here.

  • Mercedes 1.10
  • Red Bull 4.50
  • Racing Point 34.0
  • Renault 51.0
  • McLaren 67.0

What are the odds for a Safety Car intervention?

A tough call to make here, as we haven't seen a Grand Prix at the Nurburgring for seven years – but Safety Car periods have come thick and fast at the last few Grands Prix and any rain could spice things up even more. It's odds on for another Safety Car appearance this weekend.
