Who Has the Best Chance to Win?
After having such a tight win in the 2021 Bahrain Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes are barely holding on. So, it’s hard to say if they will be a safe bet. Mercedes did perform well in last year’s race, with Hamilton taking the win. There’s no doubt they could win again, but the F1 odds are looking at other drivers to take the win this time around.
The challenge for Hamilton and Marcedes is Max Verstappen, who’s been expected to have a great season. He did have difficulties at Bahrain, due to his teammate, Sergio Perez, starting from the pit lane. This placed Verstappen in an outnumbered position against Hamilton and his teammate Valtteri Bottas. If Perez qualifies on the top, they might just have a chance to get the win.
Who Should You Keep an Eye Out For?
AlphaTauri’s Yuki Tsunoda is one driver that’s on the rise, creating an exciting path so far. The 20-year old from Japan kicked off his first F1 start at Bahrain last month and had some impressive moments. He ended in ninth place, which already has others looking at this talent. This can be quite the season for the rookie.
Another rising star is McLaren’s Lando Norris, who took fourth place in Bahrain last month, with his teammate Daniel Ricciardo taking seventh place. Even though Norris was outqualified by his Ricciardo, he still moved ahead and take some fair amount of points in the process. You should look forward to seeing this young fellow do his thing.
Which Teams Should You Avoid?
Aston Martin has much to regain, as they had a terrible weekend at Bahrain, as Sebastian Vettel got knocked out of the first qualifier and also collided against Esteban Ocon during the race. They’ve also been hit hard with the new regulations affecting low rake cars.
Haas is another team to avoid. With two rookie drivers in Nikita Mazepin and Mick Schumacher, and a car that is barely developed, this won’t be a Sunday drive for them at all. Their debut last week wasn’t good.
2021 Emilia Romagna Grand Prix Betting Prediction
A question that surrounds this whole race is Hamilton’s confidence. This could be Verstappen’s opportunity to bring some challenge to the table. As long as he has his team with him this time around, he might just get the win they need.
Still, keep track of the other drivers mentioned earlier. It looks like this race will be one to remember this season, so don’t miss it!
