F1 Brazilian Grand Prix Odds Guide, Betting Preview & Tips
Max Verstappen secured his second victory of the Formula One season in Mexico two weeks ago and can be expected to be amongst the front-runners at this weekend’s Brazilian Grand Prix (Race: Sunday, 16:00 GMT, live on Sky Sports F1), writes Nick.
The main story in Mexico was Lewis Hamilton sealing the 2017 Drivers’ Championship despite finishing in ninth following a first-lap clash with his closest challenger Sebastian Vettel. The triumph now makes the British driver a four-time world champion.
His Mercedes team have confirmed that they intend to use the final two races of the season to trial parts for next year’s car. Although they are confident that they can juggle that with competing for victory this weekend, it is Verstappen who presents a more compelling bet given the Brazilian Grand Prix odds that the top bookies are offering.
The 20-year-old has generally had a frustrating season. Seven retirements have limited his ability to put together a consistent run of results. He is almost certain to finish behind his teammate Daniel Ricciardo in the championship standings but he has shown strong pace in recent races. His victory in Mexico came just three races after another win in Malaysia.
Verstappen produced an attention-grabbing performance at last year’s Brazilian Grand Prix, recovering to finish third in wet conditions after an earlier incorrect tyre choice had put him down the field. He found grip where few others were able to and pulled off some daring overtaking manoeuvres to establish himself as a force in the wet.
Red Bull have gone well in recent races and should have a car capable of getting on the podium this weekend. If rain appears, as is always a possibility at the Interlagos circuit, then Verstappen’s chances of standing on its top step will increase just that little bit more.
Valtteri Bottas bounced back after a few below-par displays to finish second for Mercedes in Mexico ahead of the Ferraris of Kimi Raikkonen and Vettel. It was another disappointing race for Ferrari, who started the season so well and for a long time had a car that was better or at least equal to the Mercedes but they have fallen away since the summer break.
The difference is stark. After the first 11 races of the year, up to and including Hungary, Ferrari had averaged 28.91 points per race, with Vettel averaging 18.36. At that stage, he led the drivers’ championship by 14 points. In the following seven, the team have averaged 19.57; Vettel just 10.71. His deficit to champion Hamilton now sits at 56 points – a 70-point swing.
When the season is done and dusted, there will be much for the team to review back at their Maranello base, and they could really do with a morale-boosting victory in one of the remaining two races to go into the winter break in better spirits. But the truth is that it is unlikely to come this weekend. Ferrari’s last win at Interlagos came in 2008 and they had some struggles in the rainy conditions last year. Vettel came home fifth on that occasion and there is every chance that he will again find himself off the podium this Sunday.
In Mexico, Esteban Ocon again drove very well to come home fifth for Force India, with Lance Stroll sixth for Williams and Sergio Perez seventh in the other Force India. Kevin Magnussen’s Haas, Hamilton and the McLaren of Fernando Alonso rounded out the top 10.
Ocon has been very impressive in his first full season in Formula One. He has scored points in all but one of the 18 races and while his teammate Perez had the better of him over the first half of the year, Ocon has made up a good amount of ground since the summer break. With two races to go, he is now just nine points behind the Mexican driver in the standings.
Last season, Ocon drove for Manor in the final nine races of the year. Now that we have reached those same circuits this time around, his performances seem to have gone up another level. He has finished in the top six in each of the last three races and after a good drive for Manor in Brazil last year, he can be fancied to extend that run to four on Sunday.
