Max Verstappen is bidding for a third consecutive Formula One Drivers’ Championship and it’s starting to look like a formality for the Red Bull driver. The 25-year-old has not been out of the first two all season and he has recently put together a winning run of eight Grand Prix, blowing the opposition out of the water.

There’s little doubt that Verstappen is in a superior car to his competitors and it could be the case that the 25-year-old is able to win the ten remaining races. The manner of some of the recent victories have been facile and he was able to win in Belgium despite having a demotion on the grid due to his gearbox being added in.

From a betting perspective, it’s probably more interesting to focus on which drivers can secure a podium finish. Sergio Perez probably looks well placed to achieve this after finishing in the top three in three of the previous four outings, with Lewis Hamilton also having improved in recent Grand Prix.

The Brit returned to podium in Spain when finishing second and then managed third-placed finishes in the British and Canadian Grand Prix. However, compatriot Lando Norris was also a man in form when achieving the runner-up spot behind Verstappen in Great Britain and Hungary, with that being offset by seventh place in Belgium.
