And although Max Verstappen won the 70th Anniversary Grand Prix, he is only third favourite and on at 5.00 to win the Spanish Grand Prix – where he famously took his first career F1 win back in 2016 on his debut for Red Bull.

Meanwhile, Sergio Perez jumps straight in as fourth favourite – albeit with much longer odds than the top three – on his return after missing two races following a positive Covid-19 test.

Lewis Hamilton 1.50
Valtteri Bottas 4.50
Max Verstappen 5.00
Sergio Perez 34.0
Charles Leclerc 41.0
Alexander Albon, Carlos Sainz, Lance Stroll, Lando Norris 51.0
Sebastian Vettel 101
Daniel Ricciardo 251
Esteban Ocon 601
Antonio Giovinazzi, Daniil Kvyat, George Russell, Kevin Magnussen, Kimi Raikkonen, Nicholas Latifi, Pierre Gasly, Romain Grosjean 901

NORTHAMPTON, ENGLAND - AUGUST 09: Race winner Max Verstappen of Netherlands and Red Bull Racing

Max Verstappen took his first victory of 2020 last time out. Will Mercedes respond to the Red Bull threat?

What are the odds for fastest in qualifying?

Valtteri Bottas took pole position last time out at Silverstone, but Hamilton retains favourite status having taken four career pole positions to date in Spain – level with the late, great Ayrton Senna.

Perhaps odds of 3.00 on Bottas to take another pole position, having done so here in 2019, present an attractive proposition, especially after his superb pole lap at Silverstone last week...

Lewis Hamilton 1.45
Valtteri Bottas 3.00
Max Verstappen 7.50
Charles Leclerc 51.0
Sergio Perez 67.0
Alexander Albon, Carlos Sainz, Lando Norris, Lance Stroll 101.0
Sebastian Vettel 201
Daniel Ricciardo, Antonio Giovinazzi, Daniil Kvyat, Esteban Ocon, George Russell, Kevin Magnussen, Kimi Raikkonen, Nicholas Latifi, Pierre Gasly, Romain Grosjean 901

NORTHAMPTON, ENGLAND - AUGUST 09: Valtteri Bottas of Finland and Mercedes GP looks on during the F1

Will Valtteri Bottas take his third pole of the season this weekend?

What are the odds for a podium finish?

Mercedes have had at least one driver on the podium in each race of 2020, so their drivers' odds represent that.

But what about Ferrari's Charles Leclerc, who has reached the rostrum twice this season already? He's set at 4.50 to finish in the top-three, level with returnee Sergio Perez.

Or would you consider a more risky bet and hope for a home podium for Carlos Sainz, 9.00 to finish in the top three? Or perhaps you think Alex Albon is good value at 6.00 to net his maiden podium. This circuit has thrown up surprises in the past, including Pastor Maldonado's sole F1 victory back in 2012.

Lewis Hamilton 1.12
Valtteri Bottas 1.20
Max Verstappen 1.45
Sergio Perez, Charles Leclerc 4.50
Lance Stroll, Alex Albon 6.00
Carlos Sainz, Lando Norris 9.00
Sebastian Vettel 12.0
Daniel Ricciardo 31.0
Esteban Ocon 101.0
Pierre Gasly 251
Daniil Kvyat 601
George Russell, Kevin Magnussen, Kimi Raikkonen, Romain Grosjean, Antonio Giovinazzi, Nicholas Latifi 901

NORTHAMPTON, ENGLAND - AUGUST 08: The cars of Lewis Hamilton of Great Britain and Mercedes GP,

Podium-finishers this season include Charles Leclerc and Lando Norris. Will Racing Point have Sergio Perez or Lance Stroll in the top three this weekend?

What are the odds for fastest lap?

We know the pace of the Mercedes W11 is often supreme, but the Fastest Lap isn't always awarded to the Silver Arrows, meaning there is often value here.

OK, Lewis Hamilton took the DHL Fastest Lap Award last time out but Max Verstappen managed it at the British Grand Prix, while McLaren's Carlos Sainz and Lando Norris have one Fastest Lap Award apiece. So who would you back in Spain?

Lewis Hamilton 2.25
Max Verstappen 3.50
Valtteri Bottas 3.75
Alex Albon 17.0
Charles Leclerc 21.0
Carlos Sainz, Lando Norris 34.0
Sebastian Vettel 51.0
Daniel Ricciardo 101
Esteban Ocon, Antonio Giovinazzi, Daniil Kvyat, George Russell, Kevin Magnussen, Kimi Raikkonen, Nicholas Latifi, Pierre Gasly, Romain Grosjean 251

Last year's DHL Fastest Lap Award at the Spanish Grand Prix went to Lewis Hamilton

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

Mercedes are leading the constructors' championship by 68 points going into the Spanish Grand Prix, so they're clear favourites to score the most points this weekend.

Things can change quickly though, and a renewed Red Bull threat could catch them off guard this weekend.

Mercedes 1.15
Red Bull 4.50
Racing Point, Ferrari 29.0
McLaren 34.0
Renault 301
Alfa Romeo, AlphaTauri, Haas, Williams 901

What are the odds for a Safety Car intervention?

This is a tough one to call as the odds are equal for a Safety Car to appear, or not to appear at the 2020 Spanish Grand Prix. We've had a Safety Car appearance in Barcelona for the last two Grands Prix, however.

Yes 1.85
No 1.85

Odds are in $USD and correct as of 1300 BST, August 12, 2020
