2024 Bahrain Grand Prix F1 Odds, Preview, and Prediction

By Hank Blaine

Red Bull and top driver Max Verstappen hope for another easy-peasy season when the most dominant constructor and driver pairing in F1 begin the quest for a third straight title on Saturday, March 2 at the Bahrain Grand Prix. Verstappen won the race last year and claims his ride is even faster in 2024. Will the -360 super chalk get it done? Or will a driver other than Max, maybe teammate Sergio Perez, take this season’s first checkered flag? See below for F1 odds to win the Bahrain Grand Prix along with free picks.

Top Pick to Win the 2024 Bahrain Grand Prix

Lewis Hamilton is leaving Mercedes in 2025 and driving for Ferrari. So Hamilton isn’t worth backing, probably in any race this season, because he’s got one foot out the door.

However, even when Hamilton arrives at Ferrari, the top driver will be Charles Leclerc. The odds on Leclerc imply Ferrari did enough from late 2023 to February to ready their cars to compete against Red Bulls. The most historic constructor in F1 for sure will close the gap. Why not take a swing in the first race on Leclerc to finally compete against Verstappen for the driver championship?

Second Pick to Win the 2024 Bahrain Grand Prix

It’s difficult to go against the great Max Verstappen. In 2022 and 2023, Verstappen and Red Bull didn’t just win, they absolutely pummeled Mercedes, Aston Martin, Ferrari, and McLaren.

Nobody could hang with Verstappen and his crew. The same could happen this season. So if you believe that Max is right, that his ride in 2024 is faster than it was in 2023, Verstappen wins this by 2 to 3 seconds. At -360, Max might be an overlay.

Third Pick to Win the 2024 Bahrain Grand Prix

McLaren made substantial changes, bringing in one of Red Bull’s top engineers, and it immediately paid dividends. Both Oscar Piastri and the third pick, Lando Norris, landed in the top five in the last few races of 2023.

Anymore improvement and McLaren could be the one team that challenges Red Bull this season, not Ferrari. In any case, the odds are decent on Norris. So if you want to take a stab, go for it.

Top Underdog Pick to Win the 2024 Bahrain Grand Prix

Mercedes will be all in on George Russell this season. The once proud, seemingly unbeatable F1 constructor, hasn’t had any luck in two straight seasons. But settling the Hamilton saga will open the door for Mercedes to spend more time on their soon-to-be ace driver, Russell.

George Russell is a fantastic driver. So it’s question of whether the vehicle is ready. If it is, Russell could win in Bahrain.
