Formula 1 Betting Preview & Pick for 2018 Spanish GP

Posted by Derrick Harper on May 10, 2018 in

On Sunday – the Spanish Grand Prix will take place at the Circuit de Barcelona. This race is still one of the oldest in all of the world. It started back in 1913 and has been run 59 times since then. The most wins at the Spanish GP is Michael Schumacher, and Ferrari has taken down the event 12 times. This is a 66 lap race. A season ago Lewis Hamilton won this event as the Red Bull – TAG Heuer. Let’s check the latest Formula 1 Betting Odds to win at Barcelona this year while making some predictions.

Formula 1 Betting Preview & Pick for 2018 Spanish GP

Sebastian Vettel 13/8

The 2011 winner is the favorite to take down the 2018 event. Vettel is a four-time Formula One Champion, with his most recent coming in 2013. Vettel is still just 30 years old, so plenty of racing still left in him. Look for him to be in the front of the pack for much of the race, but winning it could be a challenge.

Lewis Hamilton 6/4

The 6/4 odds man is looking to win back to back titles. His other win at the Spanish GP came in 2014. The Mercedes car is likely the fastest and most skilled in the field. The 333-year-old is often considered the best driver of his generation. Look for him to tack on to his all-time most career points record.

Valtteri Bottas 9/1

The 28 year old Finnish racer currently resides out of Monaco. In his first four races with Mercedes back in 2017, he was able to grab the pole position in Bahrain and come away with the fastest lap in Russia. Not sure if Bottas is ready to take down a Spanish GP, but he is worth looking at.

Daniel Ricciardo 9/1

Daniel is 28 years old from Australia. He came away with the Formula 3 Championship in Britain back in 2009. Ricciardo took over for Mark Webber following his retirement back in 2014.

Daniel Ricciardo is one of the Formula 1 Betting favorites to win at Barcelona.

Some say he is ripe to win his first ever Spanish GP. At 9/1 odds it’s worth looking into.

Max Verstappen 9/1

Mad Max took down this title in 2016. He competes under the Dutch Flag in Formula One. He is the youngest driver to lead a lap during the Formula One Grand Prix. Look for the 20 year old to be in the mix once again in this event.

When we bet on this event, we are going to go back with winner from last season. Lewis Hamilton is on the board to win for the third time in his career, and take down back to back titles. Hamilton listed at 6/4 odds puts him in a pretty solid spot. Best of luck with all your betting with the Spanish GP and enjoy the race!
