The penultimate race of the 2023 Formula 1 season takes place at the Las Vegas Street Circuit on Sunday 19 November. (6am UK time)

Max Verstappen and Red Bull have been totally dominant throughout the season, with the Dutchman’s victory at the Brazilian Grand Prix being his 17th of the 20 races to date. Red Bull have taken top spot in all but one race this year (Ferrari and Carlos Sainz Jr. winning the Singapore Grand Prix).

Naturally, Verstappen and Red Bull are firm favourites to prevail again in Sunday’s race, with the 26-year-old Belgium-born three-time world champion being available at odds of 1/3 with Coral to take the chequered flag, while Red Bull are 2/7 with Ladbrokes to be the Winning Team in Las Vegas.

There is at least a glimmer of hope for the other drivers and constructors though, in that this will be the first Formula 1 race in Las Vegas since the 1982 Caesars Palace Grand Prix. With the race taking place around the Las Vegas Strip on a brand-new street track, it might just offer the opportunity for a surprise or two.

Even so, it’s difficult to make much of a case for betting against Verstappen taking maximum points yet again on Sunday, but there is perhaps at least one driver worth considering.

Aside from Verstappen, Lando Norris is very much the form driver at present, with four runner-up finishes and one 3rd place in the last six Grand Prix. The 24-year-old British driver is 9/1 with Betfred to win the Las Vegas Grand Prix, which could be worth a punt.

Hamilton can bag another podium in Vegas

At the age of 38 and with a joint-record seven World Drivers’ Championship titles (tied with Michael Schumacher), and records for the most wins (103), pole positions (104), and podium finishes (197), Lewis Hamilton is very much one of the senior figures racing today.

He might now be at the veteran stage of his career, but he’s still having an impressive season in his Mercedes. Hamilton currently stands 3rd in the 2023 Drivers’ Championship and could be worth looking at to edge his number of podium finishes ever closer to 200 at Las Vegas.

To date this season, Hamilton has secured six top-three finishes, while just missing out on several other occasions (three 4th placed finishes and a further three 5th placed finishes. He’s been very consistent throughout the year, with top-eight finishes in every race bar one retirement and one disqualification.

At odds of 2/1 with Unibet, Hamilton looks worth a punt for a ‘Podium Finish’ (top-3) at Las Vegas.
