Mexico City Grand Prix Betting Tips

With just five races remaining, the 2021 Formula 1 World Championship heads to Mexico City, with the Drivers’ Championship title up for grabs. Max Verstappen has never won a title although the Dutchman is in pole position after a victory in the USA Grand Prix, with the Red Bull driver ten points clear of Lewis Hamilton.

The bookies make Verstappen the odds-on betting favourite to claim what would be a ninth victory of the year, with the 24-year-old having pieced together some outstanding form this season and it looks as though he could be on the verge of something special.

Can Hamilton Get Back into Contention in Mexico?

The bottom line is that while Verstappen has never won a Drivers’ Championship, his arch-nemesis has seven titles on the board. Lewis Hamilton has proved time and again that he can be a winner in the Mercedes car, with the 36-year-old bidding to return to the top of the podium and secure a victory that will haul him back into contention.

The main problem with backing the Brit to win this race is the mere fact that Hamilton is not in particularly good form. Lewis has only won once in the past seven attempts and much of his success this season came at a very early stage. Since winning three of the first four races, there has been a real battle to get points on the board.

Perez and Bottas Battling for Podium Spot in Mexico

Sergio Perez is available at double figure odds to win in Mexico City, with the Red Bull Racing-Honda driver determined to get back into the reckoning and the fact that he will be competing on home turf could be a big advantage, not to mention an incentive to get among the places.

Perez has also shown excellent form to secure third place in the past two races, with this ending a run of eight races where he’s not been on the podium. However, the only success of the campaign came in Azerbaijan, while Valtteri Bottas enjoyed that recent victory in Turkey and can’t be easily discounted in this race.

Can Lewis Hamilton continue his late push for the F1 World Championship at the Mexican Grand Prix this weekend? Ahead of the latest race, we’ve combed through the latest betting odds, providing you with our latest predictions, betting tips and odds comparison.

This weekend’s Mexican GP sees the title fight looking like it is heading to the wire. While Nico Rosberg is easily the bookie’s favourite for the title, he and Hamilton are neck and neck in the latest betting odds for this race. It’s hard to pick a winner between the two Mercedes drivers, even if there’s a considerable gap between them in the overall standings.

Even after finishing second last weekend, Rosberg has a comfortable lead in the standings. He knows that Hamilton needs three wins from three, and even that on its own won’t be enough. The champion can’t cut the current gap unless the German misses out on the top two at least once. Three second place finishes, and it’s a first world title victory for Rosberg.

So, just who will claim the points in Mexico this weekend? Well, Rosberg won here last season. That was the first time Formula 1 had travelled there in 23 years. That race did come straight after Hamilton sealed the title, so there was little on the line on that occasion. This time around, this is a crucial race in the calendar. We could see the title wrapped up, or there could be serious pressure on the leader after this weekend.

We’re going with the Brit as he still offers some value despite being the current favourite in the odds. He’s desperately in need of a win, or else he’s basically surrendered his title and he often performs at his best when under pressure.

Hamilton showed last weekend that he’s not going down without a fight. We’re backing him to display that spirit again in our latest betting tips. The current champion knows how to deal with this high-pressure situations, he’s a lot better with them than he is at concentrating in press conferences. While he was second here last season, we’re backing a win in Mexico for the three-time world champion.

Our second betting tip is on Max Verstappen to claim a top three finish. The Dutchman has come under fire for a few of his manoeuvres, while a new rule has been created to stop his dangerous breaking. That won’t phase the young driver, we’re backing him to respond with a big weekend here. Our prediction is that the Red Bull driver will join Hamilton and Rosberg in the top three, he’s 5/4 with BetVictor for a podium finish.
