Race Winners 

Lewis Hamilton – Things went according to plan for Lewis Hamilton last time out in Russia. After a dodgy bit of qualifying, the now 100-time Grand Prix winner was able to surpass his colleagues on track and – with a bit of timely help from the weather – secure the race win, 25 points and his place back atop the leaderboard. UK’s seven-time champion measures up at 3/2 (2.50) to claim his sixth victory of the season this Sunday.

Max Verstappen – ‘Damage limitation’ were the words thrown around by Red Bull before the race at the Sochi Autodrom. A grid penalty and a new engine placed Max Verstappen at the back of the grid at the Sochi Autodrom; however, against all odds, the seventeen-time F1 winner was able to make his way up the field to take an impressive second-place victory. This time Max Verstappen enters the weekend as the favourite at 5/7 (1.72) to wrestle back control of the championship and win in Turkey. 

Top 3 Finishers

Valtteri Bottas – Although his race went slightly under the radar, Valtteri Bottas was able to score a respectable fifth-place finish after starting from the back of the grid due to an engine change. This time out, Mercedes’ usually dependable Finnish driver comes in with great odds to secure a podium finish at 15/2 (8.50)

Sergio Perez – Red Bull’s second driver didn’t cover himself glory around Russia two weeks ago. A challenging qualifying session meant that Perez started his race in the trenches in eighth place. Things didn’t get any better for the Mexican driver during the race, finishing it a position lower than he started. Having the best car on the grid will allow Sergio Perez to show off his talents this Sunday, with his chances of spraying champagne calculated at 7/4 (2.75).

Lando Norris – If the weather held off for a few more minutes, or if the Russian GP lasted two laps less, Lando Norris could have been Formula 1’s 112th race winner. McLaren’s young British driver led for the majority of the race around Sochi after a mega qualifying session landed him a first-place grid start. Lando Norris comes in at 11/4 (3.75) to claim his fifth podium of the season. 

Daniel Ricciardo – The Honey Badger turned his season on its head after helping McLaren secure the only one-two finish of the year a few weeks ago in Monza. By reaffirming his status as a race-winner – and by driving a car that has shown it is more than capable of competing with Mercedes and Red Bull – Daniel Ricciardo sports solid odds of 6/1 (7.00) to find himself performing one of his legendary shoey celebrations on the top steps of the Grand Prix. 

Charles Leclerc – Although Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc is enduring a slow season by his high standards, the Monegasque driver will enjoy a host of upgrades on his SF21 this weekend. The two-time race winner matches Lando Norris at 11/4 (3.75) to claim his second podium of the season.
