Hungarian Grand Prix – 2020 F1 Betting Odds, Picks & Predictions

Following two thrilling races in Austria, the third race of the 2020 F1 season is set to take place in Hungary on Sunday, July 19. Of course, the new-look Formula One schedule is going to take some getting used to. But at the end of this day, we’re lucky to have any F1 at all this year! 

As you’d expect, Lewis Hamilton (-140) is the bookies’ clear favorite to win the Hungarian Grand Prix. The Brit was victorious in Austria last weekend, and he’s going to take some stopping this Sunday. After all, Hamilton has claimed seven wins at the Hungaroring throughout his glittering career. 

Hamilton’s Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas (+300) is the bookies second favorite. But after finishing eighth at this track last year, I can’t see him making a big impact of this race. Max Verstappen (+400) is Hamilton’s only other genuine challenger. The Red Bull star finished second at last year’s Hungarian Grand Prix and finished third – behind the two Mercedes – last time out. 

It’s difficult to imagine any of the outsiders troubling the frontrunners on Sunday. Alexander Albon (+3300) and Lando Norris (+5000) finished fourth and fifth respectively last weekend. However, the Mercedes cars – and drivers – have looked a cut above the rest in the early stages of the season. 

Before I share my pick, let’s take a look at the odds.

Free Auto Racing Pick:

Lewis Hamilton (-140)

Ultimately, I can't see anyone preventing Lewis Hamilton from claiming an eighth career with in Hungary on Sunday. In my opinion, Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas is the only driver that could possibly come close to Hamilton. But judging by the early signs this season, Hamilton should cruise to yet another comfortable victory at the Hungaroring this weekend.
