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

Date: 8/16/2020

The sixth race of the 2020 F1 season takes place on Sunday, August 16, with Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya the venue for the Spanish Grand Prix. Max Verstappen ended Mercedes’ dominance last weekend with a shock win in England, so Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas will be eager to reassert some authority on Sunday. 

Having won three of the five races this season, it’s no surprise to see Hamilton (-190) at the top of the bookies’ favorite list once again this weekend. However, Mercedes teammate Bottas (+275) will fancy his chances of upsetting the odds after winning in Austria and claiming three podium finishes since then. 

But the real question is, can Verstappen (+500) trouble the frontrunners again this weekend? The Red Bull youngster finished 11 seconds ahead of Hamilton and 19 seconds ahead of Bottas last time out, as the Mercedes team struggled to adapt their cars to the Silverstone heat. 

Sergio Perez (+3300) returns after being given the all-clear from a negative COVID-19 test, but how will the Mexican fare after his unexpected lay-off? Elsewhere, Ferrari simply hasn’t gotten going this year. Charles Leclerc (+4000) finished second in Austria and third in England, but Sebastien Vettel (+10000) is yet to register a podium finish in 2020. 

Lando Norris (+5000) is the only other driver to sneak onto the podium this season. The McLaren man finished third in the opening race of the campaign but has since recorded finishes of fifth, thirteenth, fifth, and ninth respectively. 

Let’s take a look at the bookies’ odds before deciding the winner.

Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas proved that they were beatable last weekend, as Max Verstappen raced away with the win at the 70th Anniversary Grand Prix. Of course, Hamilton is the favorite to seal the victory this weekend. But the odds for the Brit aren't anything to write home about. For that reason, I'm backing Verstappen to clinch consecutive wins on Sunday, with giant odds of +500.
