What are Charles Leclerc’s true chances of winning the Mexican Grand Prix?
It’s difficult to understand why Charles Leclerc’s odds are so low to win the Mexican Grand Prix. He most definitely deserves some credit for driving as well as he has for Ferrari. But, qualifying isn’t until this Saturday. Unless Leclerc wins the pole, his odds of taking the Mexican Grand Prix really aren’t any better than Hamilton’s. They definitely shouldn’t be better than Max Verstappen’s.
Verstappen has won the Mexican Grand Prix the last couple of years. Leclerc offers lower odds than Bottas does, and Bottas took the checkered flag in Japan. That’s not to say Leclerc won’t win on Sunday. It is to say, his odds are awfully low for a driver heading into an F1 event after a sixth place finish.</p.
Which Mercedes driver, Lewis Hamilton or Valtteri Bottas, has the best chance of winning the Mexican Grand Prix?
It’s hard to back Hamilton at +250 when his teammate offers excellent +850 odds. It’s really hard when that teammate heads to the next race after winning the previous race. But, Bottas isn’t likely to make it 2 victories in a row.
Hamilton is likely to bounce back from his third place finish in Japan to challenge for the checkered flag on Sunday. In fact, at the odds, it’s hard to not back Hamilton to win yet again. +250 are more than decent odds on a driver who has dominated this season and took the Mexican GP in 2016.
Who should bettors consider to win the Mexican Grand Prix between Valtteri Bottas and Max Verstappen?
Bottas offers more attractive odds than Verstappen. Max won this race in 2017 and 2018, though. He retired in Japan. That race is a throw out. One of the reasons he retired was because he knew Mexico was around the corner. Verstappen will provide a great race on Sunday. So, although his odds are half of Valtteri’s, he’s the driver to back.
Should Alexander Albon’s odds be higher or lower to win on Sunday?
Albon, the much-hyped Thai driver, finished fourth in Russia in F1’s last event. He drove well, but he has yet to really announce his arrival. Verstappen should take a Top 5 place, if not win, while Leclerc, Hamilton, Bottas, and Vettel figure to make the rest of the Top 4. That leaves Albon’s best finish on Sunday a decent but not eye-turning sixth.
His odds are where they should be to win on Oct. 27. Albon is a great driver. His time will come. Right now, the drivers and teams that dominate are just too strong.
