Formula 1 Azerbaijan Grand Prix Betting, Odds & Prediction’s Favorites

Written by on April 28, 2023

Three rounds of the new Formula 1 season are in the books, and it already looks as though we are about to see a rather similar story unfold. Two-time defending champion Max Verstappen is out to a fast start, winning 2 of the opening 3 races and landing on the podium in the other. Right now, it looks as though his Red Bull Racing teammate, Sergio Perez, might well be the only driver ready to tackle the champ and give him a run for his money, but as we all know, this is a long season, and one that simply isn’t won after just 3 races. Still, it would be nice to see a good battle for the World Championship emerge, but will things get tighter after this weekends race in Azerbaijan? Let’s take a look at the Formula 1 betting analysis and our current favorites.


Formula 1 Picks and Analysis: Azerbaijan Grand Prix 2023 | F1 Odds

When: Sunday, April 30 at 6:55 am ET
Where: Bakú, Azerbaijan
TV / Streaming: ESPN


Max Verstappen

Like we said at the top of this piece, it already looks as though Verstappen is unwilling to loosen his dominant grip on F1, as he has already won 2 races this season and landed on the podium in the other. If he is to win again this weekend, he is going to need to do it coming from behind, as he did not land that pole position in Azerbaijan. That went to Charles Leclerc in what was a bit of a surprise. He does have history on his side, though, as he comes into this race knowing that he won it last year. The odds of him repeating seem pretty good.

Sergio Perez

After more than a decade of dominance from Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes, it looks like Red Bull Racing are ready to take over. Having Max Verstappen certainly helps their cause, but bringing Sergio Perez into the fold has also proven to be a stroke of genius. In fact, with Perez winning the one race that Verstappen missed out on this season Red Bull has a clean sweep through the opening 3 races. They look to be just that much better than the other constructors this season, so are we looking at a 2-horse race? He ran 2nd to Verstappen in Azerbaijan last season.

Fernando Alonso

While getting on the podium is great, unless you are consistently standing on the #1 spot, chances are you are not going to win a world championship. Alonso has been on the podium in every race this season, finishing 3rd in all 3. It is ridiculously consistent, even in the early going, but it also means that he is still 24 points back of Verstappen at the top. Given that the champ rarely leaves points on the track, making that up without winning is going to be tough. He has failed to crack the top 5 in his last 3 races in Azerbaijan, but that might change this weekend.

Lewis Hamilton

It wasn’t a win, but getting onto the podium for the first time this season is a step in the right direction. Hamilton finished 5th in each of the first 2 races of the season before grabbing 2nd in Australia in the last race, all of which has him sitting down in 4th in the driver standings. At this point, you do have to wonder how much he and Mercedes have left in the tank, but I think it might still be worth taking a chance on Hamilton to land on the podium again this weekend.
