Formula 1, Mexican Grand Prix 2018, Race Preview

178

The Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez in Mexico City is once again the venue for the Mexican Grand Prix this Sunday and we take a look at the race from a betting perspective.

The United States Grand Prix saw Kimi Räikkönen break a 5 year win-less spell when he celebrated his first GP victory since 2013, he was followed by Max Verstappen in runner-up position and third on the podium went to Lewis Hamilton.

The race for the Championship Title is still on (albeit only mathematically) as Sebastian Vettel managed to take 4th spot. Hamilton had entered the race with a 67 point lead over Vettel, this has now increased to 70 points going into the Mexican GP.

Race History

Max Verstappen topped the podium at the Mexican GP in 2017, Valtteri Bottas was second and Kimi Räikkönen completed the trio.  The two rivals for the Championship Title, Vettel and Hamilton were both forced into early pit stops and then had to fight their way back through the field eventually taking 4th and 9th spots respectively, which was enough to see Hamilton clinch his 4th World Title.

 

Suggested Bet: Verstappen win at 4/1

Verstappen drove a great race last week and he comes in here as the defending champion. Hamilton may ride slightly defensively to ensure the title race does not drag on and Vettel seems a bit low on confidence at the moment.
