Max Verstappen is on a brilliant run of form and the 2022 British Grand Prix at Silverstone is all about whether he can keep it going – but Ferrari are primed to hit back after a run of poor races.
There are plenty of factors to consider before putting your money down and while the reigning champion might be the favorite to deliver this weekend, the weather, safety cars, and much more could prove to halt his winning run.
Here are the race odds on betting apps and betting sites.
Odds via Caesars Sportsbook and accurate as of publication.
British Grand Prix Betting Tips
Verstappen is the driver on form entering Great Britain, the reigning champion having won six of the nine Grands Prix so far this year, having also taken pole position twice. His team Red Bull have won six GPs in a row, which is their most successful run of form since 2013.
As for Charles Leclerc, who was top of the standings after Round 5 of this championship, the Ferrari driver’s form has dipped. He hasn’t won since Round 3 in Australia, and an engine penalty meant he couldn’t achieve a fifth consecutive pole position back in Canada – where Verstappen started first and ended first.
Ferrari enter Great Britain knowing that they’ll have to execute a perfect weekend to win, retirements having cost Leclerc in Azerbaijan and Spain, and the team in red also know that Red Bull have the straight-line pace advantage, which will fare them well at Silverstone.
Red Bull therefore have the upper hand but Leclerc is favorite via BetMGM at +140 – Verstappen at +200 – to win the British Grand Prix. Leclerc is a much more lucrative +225 to win via Caesars.
Head to Caesars and the respective teammates have much longer odds: Sergio Perez is +900 to win and Carlos Sainz +1200. Both have a chance, but they haven’t enjoyed anywhere near the same form as Verstappen this season.
There’s a question of grid penalties, Leclerc having dropped to the back in Canada after taking new engine parts, and this weekend Red Bull could be penalized for taking new parts. Watch out for that possibility around Friday practice or before qualifying on Saturday.
Rain struck to mix up the grid in qualifying in Canada and it’s expected to fall on Friday at Silverstone. The chance of rain is low on Saturday, so Red Bull and Ferrari are favorites for pole.
British Grand Prix Betting Predictions
Leclerc didn’t ace qualifying last time out as grid penalties – putting him at the back of the grid anyway – saw him start 19th. This time around he should bounce back, that Ferrari is rapid when it comes to short-run pace, and while Red Bull have the straight-line advantage, their pace tends to ramp up on Sundays, such is their set-up.
So Leclerc is favorite for pole position at -125 via BetMGM, but if you want to back Verstappen you’d get +170.
While Sergio Perez has taken one pole this season, Carlos Sainz hasn’t, and both are considered outsiders to do so at Silverstone with respective odds of +700 and +1000 via BetMGM.
Mercedes are ones to watch, even if they aren’t at the same level as Ferrari and Red Bull this season. The home heroes are bringing a huge upgrade package to the British Grand Prix, and while it’s a stretch to consider them contenders, they might well get a podium here.
Odds for George Russell to do so are +190 while Hamilton fetches +180 via Caesars – and if the confidence of Mercedes’ engineers is anything to go by, this might be worth a punt. The same betting app is offering +575 for Mercedes to win the Grand Prix, which is a long shot…
Alpine is another team exuding confidence. If you back Fernando Alonso to get a podium, Caesars is offering +1600. Upgrades, plus the fact that Alonso is driving at his best, could make that a slim possibility.
A safety car is likely – there have been nine in the last 10 Grands Prix here – hence Caesars' odds of -300 for one to be deployed vs. +225 for a safety car not to appear. As for retirements, the story goes that we’ve had an average of three per race this season – so BetMGM is offering +200 for over 18.5 cars to be classified at Silverstone.
Finally, the championships look to be Red Bull’s – even if there is a way to go – but Ferrari-supporting optimists can now back Leclerc at +600 to turn things around and win the championship via Caesars, and more realistic odds of +400 for Ferrari to win the constructors’ title.
It’s worth waiting until FP3 to place your bets and see how low and thick the clouds are hanging over Silverstone. If rain strikes, a qualifying upset is on the cards – and Mercedes and Alpine could well shine on Saturday, then Sunday.
