  • Three-time world champion Max Verstappen is a favorite to win the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix and the Driver's Championship.
  • Correlatively, Red Bull Racing is a sizable favorite to win the constructor’s championship.

Get the latest F1 odds for the two main futures markets along with this week’s Emilia Romagna Grand Prix. 

This week at Imola, only three drivers are 10/1 or shorter to win the grand Prix. Max Verstappen, winner of all but two races this season, is the favorite at -350.

Lando Norris, who claimed his maiden grand prix victory in Miami, is down to +700 to win this week’s race. Finally, lead Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc is +800 to win.

Here’s a look at how the rest of the outright market shapes up for the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix

Emilia Romagna Grand Prix Predictions

Sergio Perez Podium Finish (+100)

I rate this a great buy-low spot on Perez, who is coming off his second non-podium of the season in Miami. 

However, bettors should expect the secondary Red Bull driver to excel at a track with dissimilar characteristics to Miami.

Both of Perez’s P4 or worse finishes this season have come at high downforce tracks, where Red Bull’s advantage in the straights is mitigated. 

However, sample the three races at tracks that reward straight-line speed — Bahrain, China, and Saudi Arabia — and bettors will find that Perez has finished atop the podium in all three. 

Two of those have come with room to spare as he recorded a P2 finish in Bahrain and Saudi Arabia. 

Perez, along with Red Bull, have a strong history at this circuit. 

The last time Imola hosted an F1 grand prix in 2022, Perez and teammate Max Verstappen finished P1-P2. 

Slightly concerning is the fact Perez finished P11 here in 2021, but it came after he qualified P2. 

Plus, the grand prix featured wet weather, with Perez receiving a penalty for overtaking a safety car. 

For those reasons, take Perez to secure a podium finish in Italy.


In the two main futures markets, reigning world champion Max Verstappen opened as a -600 favorite to win his fourth straight title. Currently, Verstappen is -2000. 

Red Bull Racing – the constructor led by Verstappen – opened -650 to earn the most points in the constructor’s championship. Currently, Red Bull is -1400. 

Since 2000, the constructor with the championship-winning driver has also won the constructor’s championship in all but two years. 

Here’s how the rest of the odds shake out for the driver’s championship for drivers currently +10000 or shorter to win the championship.
