Formula 1 Mexican GP Betting Odds, Analysis & Prediction

It is getting to be crunch time in the 2021 Formula 1 season, as we now have just 5 races remaining before a champion is crowned. Of course, the actual crowning may come sooner if Max Verstappen can continue to open up his lead at the top of the driver standings. That is going to take some doing, though, simply because it has been a back-and-forth battle between Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton since the start of the season, with both men taking some time atop the driver standings. For now, though, it is the Dutchman in the lead, which means that most of the pressure rests on the shoulders of the 7-time champion. He will need to come from behind to win a record 8th world championship, but with 5 races to go, it would not be wise to write off Hamilton just yet. Let’s take a look ahead to Sunday and the odds for the Mexican Grand Prix. so you can get ready to bet against the Formula 1 odds.

Formula 1 Betting Analysis for Gran Premio De La Ciudad De México Race

Max Verstappen (-150)

If Verstappen can maintain the pace that he has set all season, he will take his first ever world championship title sooner rather than later. Over the past 3 races, he has a win and a pair of 2nd place finishes, making it tough for Hamilton to close the gap. That gap, though, is not in any way safe, as the lead that Verstappen has is just 12 points. His latest victory, which was his 8th of the season, came in the US Grand Prix, which was the last race on the schedule. He is already leaps and bounds ahead of the 2 wins that he posted last season, but the fact that Hamilton is still so close tells you exactly how far ahead of the pack these two drivers are. This is a race that Verstappen loves, as he has 2 wins in the last 3 Mexican Grand Prix. If he can win on Sunday, the pressure will really be on Hamilton.

Lewis Hamilton (+200)

In each of the last two seasons, Hamilton has racked up 11 wins on his way to a world championship. Even if he wins out this season, he would still fall 1 win shy of the numbers posted in those last 2 seasons. Still, he has a good chance to make up some ground this weekend, as he does have a good history in this race. Hamilton won it in 2019, which was the last time the Mexican Grand Prix was held, with COVID forcing the postponement of the race in 2020. He also won it in 2016, so plenty to suggest that Hamilton can get back to winning ways and potentially back on top of the driver standings.

The Rest of the Field

Given the dominance of the top two drivers in F1, we always see a big drop off in odds after those two. It is the same again this weekend, with Sergio Perez (+1200) sure to be the favorite among the fans in attendance in his home nation. He does not have a great history in this race, though. While he has yet to win in Mexico, Valtteri Bottas (+2000) has had some podium appearances, so he might well be worth a look at very good odds.
