US Grand Prix Betting Tips & Predictions

Recently crowned back-to-back Formula One World Champion Max Verstappen will be looking to record his second successive United States Grand Prix victory this weekend.

The Red Bull driver, who was crowned champion for the second year running after winning the Japanese Grand Prix on October 9, won the US race last year as he finished ahead of Lewis Hamilton and Sergio Perez.

Verstappen clearly has the best car on the circuit, and as long as he finishes the race he is going to be very difficult to beat.

It seems a no-brainer backing Verstappen to win the race, as I cannot see him easing up now despite already winning the title.

It is a regular occurrence to now bet on who will join the Dutchman on the podium. British driver George Russell is having a great first year at Mercedes. He is currently fourth overall with 207 and despite not winning a race, he has been very impressive.

Back Russell to finish on the podium alongside Verstappen and Perez. The battle for second and third place between Russell, Perez and Charles Leclerc is hotting up. If Russell finishes on the podium and Leclerc fails to score big points, he could be in with a shot of finishing third overall.

Circuit Guide

The Circuit of the Americas is one of the newest circuits on the Formula 1 calendar, having opened in October 2012 when it hosted the United States Grand Prix, which was won by Lewis Hamilton.

The 3.427-mile circuit takes inspiration from other tracks on the F1 schedule and it is a popular venue for drivers, who have welcomed its challenging nature. A couple of long straights allow drivers to put their foot down, but a series of twists and turns between corners 2 and 20 and corners 12 and 18 mean drivers are tested.

Lewis Hamilton has been the most successful driver since the Circuit of the Americas was added to the F1 calendar, winning the race in five of the last eight seasons, but he has not won the United States Grand Prix since 2017 and in 2019 his fastest lap record was eclipsed by rising Ferrari star Charles Leclerc.

Location: Circuit of the Americas, Austin, Texas, United States.
Number Of Laps: 56
Lap Length: 3.427 miles
Lap Record: Charles Leclerc, 1 minute 36.189 seconds (2019)
