Italian Grand Prix Betting Tips & Predictions

Max Verstappen can move a step closer to winning his first-ever Formula One championship title at the Italian Grand Prix – and I fully expect him to do just that. The Netherlands driver did his nation proud last weekend as he took the chequered flag on home soil. Verstappen was cheered all around the Zandvoort circuit as they welcomed back the Dutch Grand Prix to the F1 calendar for the first time in 36 years. That victory in front of his adoring fans was his seventh win of the campaign. He can put a nail in Hamilton’s title quest with another victory at Monza this weekend. I am backing Verstappen to once again get the better of Hamilton. This rivalry is a good one. There is a lot of respect between the two, as they both want to be the best. I feel Verstappen has the defending champions number in 2021. It was revealed this week that British driver George Russell will be teaming up with Hamilton at Mercedes next season. Many view Russell as a future world champion – and he will now get to prove how good he is in a decent car. All eyes will be on Russell this weekend to see if he is capable of being Hamilton’s partner. I believe they can help each other, and I am backing Russell to claim a podium finish.

Italian Grand Prix Preview: Circuit Guide

With the exception of a handful of races, the city of Monza has been the host site from the Italian Grand Prix since it was introduced back in 1921. It has been forced to undergo numerous changes over the years in an attempt to boost driver, staff and fan safety because the circuit has been the site of a string of incidents that have resulted in the deaths of over 80 people. But even after those changes, the Italian Grand Prix remains one of the races that produces the highest speeds of the Formula 1 season. Michael Schumacher had been the most successful driver in the history of the Italian Grand Prix prior to the 2018 season, but with his fifth career win that year Lewis Hamilton moved level with the German legend in the all-time race standings.
