2019 Hungarian Grand Prix Odds, Preview & Expert Pick

Posted by Derrick Harper on August 2, 2019 in

After dominating the first portion of the Formula 1 Circuit, Lewis Hamilton has struggled as of late. Will those struggles continue, or will he get back on track this weekend? This question will be answered as the Formula 1 Circuit will make its annual stop in Hungary. The Hungarian Grand Prix will take place this weekend in Mogyorod, Hungary at the Hungaroring Race Track.

The Hungarian Grand Prix at Hungaroring is a 70 lap race. The track is down in a valley, so the fans get a great view of all the action. This track is very narrow and twisty, so the speed rates usually drop in this event. Drivers have difficulty passing on this track because of its makeup.

With Hamilton’s struggles as of late, this field seems to be more wide open. Let’s take a look at some of the F1 Betting favorites to take the checkered flag at the Hungarian Open.

2019 Hungarian Grand Prix Odds, Preview & Expert Pick

Lewis Hamilton

Although he has struggled lately, Hamilton is still a favorite to win this race. Hamilton has six wins at Hungaroring, including last year’s event. At last weekend’s German Grand Prix, he finished 9th, so he’ll be looking to get back on the winning track. After winning seven of the first 11 races, Hamilton has finished off the podium in two of his last three races. In an event that he has dominated as of late, look for Hamilton to have a great showing at the Hungarian Grand Prix.

Max Verstappen

The winner of last weekend’s German Grand Prix, Verstappen has gained points in the driver standings. In winning two of the last three races, Verstappen has momentum on his side. However, he has struggled in Hungary, never finishing in the top five. He has finished on the podium in all 11 of this season’s races, so why wouldn’t this weekend be any different? The podium isn’t the goal for Verstappen, continuing his winning ways is the goal.

Charles Leclerc

Leclerc will be looking to rebound from last weekend’s poor showing in Germany. He was forced to retire from the race, so he’ll want to have a good showing in Hungary. When he has finished races this season, he has been in the top five. If he can finish at Hungaroring, he’ll have a great shot at making the top five, and making a run at the title.

Sebastian Vettel

Vettel’s season has been disappointing so far. He hasn’t challenged Hamilton as many predicted that he would. He’s hoping that last weekend’s second-place finish will give himself some momentum. He’s won this race twice in the last five seasons, so if he’s going to get a win, this would be the time to do it.

Valtteri Bottas

The Mercedes teammate of Hamilton had to retire at last weekend’s German Grand Prix, so it was a tough weekend for the Mercedes drivers. Up until that point, he had finished in the top four in every race this season. He has never won in Hungary, so he would love to change that this weekend.
