After a disappointing performance at the British Grand Prix due to untimely crash debris, Max Verstappen is back as the betting favorite for the Austrian Grand Prix this weekend, a race he won three times before.
The British Grand Prix was a thrilling race that saw Carlos Sainz finally claim his first Formula 1 victory. The Ferrari driver is in the middle of his most impressive season, achieving five podiums in nine races before Sunday’s victory . Prior to 2022, Sainz had only finished second twice since making his debut in 2015.
British GP betting favorite and F1 points leader Max Verstappen finished seventh but his Red Bull team-mate Sergio Perez took second. Lewis Hamilton, meanwhile, clinched his second consecutive podium finish with a third-place finish.
Verstappen is once again favorite to win the Austrian Grand Prix on Sunday July 10. Will he bounce back or will we have another surprise at the finish? Here are the first chances to win the 2022 Austrian Grand Prix.

Austrian Grand Prix favorites
Max Verstappen (-110)
Verstappen enters the 2022 Austrian GP tied for most race wins with three (2018, 2019, 2021). The only other drivers on this weekend’s grid to have won at the Red Bull Ring are Lewis Hamilton (2016) and Valtteri Bottas (2017, 2020).
And although the 24-year-old failed to maintain his favorite status at Silverstone, much of that can be attributed to the striking debris of a collision between Yuki Tsunoda and Pierre Gasly. His dominance in 2022 has once again earned him favorite status as he targets his seventh victory of the year at a track he knows very well.
Charles Leclerc (+220)
After opening the 2022 season with two wins from three races, Leclerc has fallen back to earth. He hasn’t been on the podium for five consecutive times and saw Ferrari team-mate Carlos Sainz take the checkered flag this weekend. He is now third in the F1 driver standings behind Verstappen and Sergio Perez.
Still, Leclerc is second on the odds table in Austria. He finished eighth last year but was runners-up to Verstappen in 2019 and Bottas in 2020.
Carlos Sainz (+900)
Fresh off his first career win, Sainz sits third on the odds chart. He has fared much better than his Ferrari teammate Leclerc in recent weeks and has not finished worse than fourth in any race apart from the three he retired from in 2022. As a result, he has nearly caught up with Leclerc in the standings. .
The 27-year-old will be looking to build on his success as Ferrari aim to gain ground on Red Bull in the overall standings.

Qualifying is scheduled for Friday, July 8 at 12:00 p.m. ET.

F1 race odds usually look like this:
This means that on a $100 bet, you will win $1,400 if Perez wins that particular race. If a driver is particularly dominant, you may see a minus sign (-) in front of that driver’s ratings like this:
This means you would need to bet $120 to win $100 on Verstappen’s win.
