Race 20 of 22 in the Formula One season takes place in Sao Paulo, Brazil on Sunday. The titles for driver and constructor have long since been decided, with Max Verstappen and Red Bull having never been under any serious pressure as they have retained their crowns with complete and total dominance in 2023.
With Verstappen having won 16 of 19 races this season to date, and Red Bull having only failed to take top spot on one occasion, it will come as no great surprise to see that the bookies see little threat to the status quo in Sao Paulo.
For those so inclined Verstappen, who will start from pole position on the grid, can be backed at odds of just 4/11 with BetFred to take his usual central position on the podium on Sunday. even those odds are somewhat out of line with the rest of the market, with the next best offering on a 17th victory of the season for Verstappen being 1/5 with BetVictor.
In terms of the Winning Team in Brazil, it shouldn’t come as a great surprise to see Red Bull at 1/7 with Paddy Power to make it win number 19 of the season.
In reality, if you are looking for a bit of value on Sunday, you would be far better advised to look at a few alternative markets.
Williams and Alpine have each suffered seven retirements in races this season, which is more than any other team. In 1st Car Retirement at the Brazilian Grand Prix betting, Williams are on offer at odds of 6/1 with William Hill, while Alpine are a tempting 11/1 with bet365.
The Williams team features Thai-British driver Alex Albon and the American Logan Sargeant, while Alpine consists of the French pairing of Esteban Ocon and Pierre Gasly.
Sargeant will start 19th of 20 drivers on the grid on Sunday and looks a fair punt at 14/1 with bet365 to be the 1st Driver to Retire.
- 1st Car Retirement – Williams @ 6/1 with William Hill
- 1st Car Retirement – Alpine @ 11/1 with bet365
- 1st Driver Retirement - Logan Sargeant @ 14/1 with bet365
