French Grand Prix

After a short break, Formula 1 heads to France for the Circuit Paul Ricard for the French Grand Prix. This race comes as both Ferrari and Mercedes are starting to build some momentum before the first half of the season comes to a close.

The latest Formula 1 odds predict Max Verstappen will cross the checkered flag first, extending his lead in the Driver’s Championship over Charles Leclerc.

Mercedes On A Hot Streak

Mercedes enters this race on quite a hot streak. Lewis Hamilton was a huge threat to the top two teams at Silverstone, ultimately leading to a podium finish.

Hamilton also scored a third-place finish in Austria with his teammate, George Russell, just behind him in fourth.

When it comes to the track at Paul Ricard, a lot of similarities to Silverstone exist. The track features high-speed turns and a smooth surface.

This surface and layout should bode well for Mercedes, allowing them to potentially snag more points away from other drivers in the title fight.

While Hamilton will have to sit out of FP1, don’t be alarmed when you see Nyck de Vries in his car on Friday.

Each F1 team has to allow drivers with limited experience to compete in a practice session in each car during the season. It is a new F1 regulation that came out this year. Russell will do the same later on in the season. Hamilton will be back in time for FP2 and all the qualifying sessions.

With Mercedes getting its porpoising under control and the track favoring its cars, Hamilton to finish top three at +110 at BetMGM Sportsbook is worth a look.

Verstappen Seeks Back-To-Back Poles

Ferrari has seemingly closed the gap on Red Bull when it comes to straight-line speed, making the battles between the top two teams even more epic as we close out the first half of the season. The team’s new rear wing seems to be doing the trick. Ferrari team principal Mattia Binotto says the gap between Red Bull and Ferrari is now negligible.

But Red Bull isn’t going anywhere.

Although he didn’t win the Austrian Grand Prix, Verstappen secured pole position by 0.029 seconds over Leclerc in qualifying. He looked poised to take pole in the British Grand Prix as well until the rain started falling just minutes before qualifying began and Carlos Sainz Jr. beat him out.

Up until that point, he had led both Q1 and Q2.

Taking a look at the weather forecast, nothing but high temps and sunny skies looks in store for the race weekend in France.

I like Red Bull Racing at +110 to win qualifying at DraftKings Sportsbook for the French Grand Prix.
