Will the Formula 1 season end with a whimper or a bang? It would be easy to suggest that we won’t see many fireworks in the final 3 races of the season given that Max Verstappen has the title locked up, but there are enough storylines still in play to believe that we may still see some exciting racing at the tail end of the season. There is a real battle going on for 2nd place between Charles Leclerc and Sergio Perez, with the latter looking to make it a 1-2 sweep for Red Bull Racing. We also have Lewis Hamilton looking for his first win of the season, a feat that he has never failed to deliver since coming into F1. We also have Verstappen looking for one more win to secure the record for the most wins in a single season, so like we said, a lot still going on even though the champion has been crowned. Let’s take a look at the current odds for the 2022 Mexican Grand Prix so you can place your bets on their Formula 1 Odds.
F1 Betting Odds, Analysis and Prediction for the 2022 Mexico City GP
Max Verstappen (-163)
As we mentioned earlier, there is still some business for Verstappen to take care of this season. He comes into this race with 13 wins under his belt this season, a number that matches the previous record shared by Michael Schumacher and Sebastian Vettel. In an interview earlier in the week, Verstappen downplayed the idea of taking that record, but make no mistake about it, you can bet that he wants it. Given that he has won 7 of the last 8 races, it would be more surprising if he didn’t pick up the record-setting win in the final 2 races of the year. Will it come in Mexico? The bookies certainly seem to think so, and it is worth noting that Verstappen won this race last year. Tough to bet against at this point.
Sergio Perez (+450)
The race for 2nd place in the driver standings is about as tight as it gets, with Perez and Leclerc separated by a mere 2 points. Perez is sitting behind his rival at the moment and will be looking to move up and give Red Bull Racing the clean sweep at the top. He has certainly been in the type of form that could make that happen, as he has been no worse than 6th over his last 7 races, with a lone win in among that mix. If he can maintain that form through the final 3 races, there is a better than average chance that he will land in 2nd overall. He ended up on the podium in Mexico City last season, finishing 3rd in that one.
Charles Leclerc (+460)
As you can clearly see by looking at the odds for this race, there is literally nothing separating Perez and Leclerc at this point. The reason Leclerc has managed to cling to that 2nd place standing is because he has been remarkably consistent of late, landing on the podium in 5 straight races ahead of this one. He ran 5th in the Mexican Grand Prix last season, but right now, the goal is to finish ahead of Perez and give himself some breathing space in that 2nd place spot.
