Bet on Saudi Arabia GP 2021

There are now just eight points separating Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton in the 2021 Formula 1 World Championship, with the Dutchman still holding a slender advantage with two Grand Prix remaining.

However, the Red Bull Racing-Honda driver currently seems powerless to stop his great rival from reeling him in, with the 24-year-old following the Brit home in Sao Paulo and Qatar which means that the gap has closed.

The Saudi Arabian Grand Prix could see Hamilton burst into the overall lead with just the Abu Dhabi race remaining, although the hope will be that Verstappen can stop the rot and there’s obviously the prospect of him actually landing the title.

Hamilton Big Odds-On to Win 2021 Saudi Arabian GP

Before winning the Sao Paulo Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton had only won two of the previous fourteen races, although the 36-year-old has rallied superbly when it matters the most. The Mercedes team are now getting a tune out of the car and the driver has the experience to steer himself to yet another Formula 1 success.

Most bookmakers have odds of 1/2 (1.50) about a third consecutive Grand Prix victory for Hamilton and the Brit will be wary of Verstappen potentially deploying spoiling tactics in a bid to preserve an advantage over his opponent. The Dutchman is still in an overall lead and will hope that he can produce a late rally to win this race and set himself up for a maiden championship win.

Can Verstappen Return to Winning Ways in Saudi Arabia?

Max Verstappen is trading at betting odds of 9/4 to win what would be his tenth Grand Prix of the season, with the Red Bull driver having rarely been outside of the top two positions throughout the campaign. Aside from failing to finish in Azerbaijan and then retiring in the British and Italian Grand Prix, the only time the Dutchman failed to be on the podium was ninth place in Hungary.

Verstappen’s racing style has been recently criticised for being close to the edge and he’s now entering a high stakes game with the more experienced Hamilton breathing down his neck. However, it’s far from likely that Max will rein in his attacking instincts at this crucial point in time.

Hamilton Favourite to Win F1 Drivers’ Championship

The bookies certainly think that the tide is now in favour of Lewis Hamilton. He is trading as the strong favourite to win the Drivers’ Championship despite trailing by eight points and is now available at 4/6, with the pair potentially neck and neck going into the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix if we once again see the Brit claim first spot and being followed home by his big rival.
