Emilia Romagna Grand Prix favorites

Charles Leclerc (+120)
In 2021, Leclerc failed to win a single race. However, in 2022, he has already won two races and placed second at the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix. Through three races, Leclerc leads the F1 drivers' championship with 71 points.

Max Verstappen (+165)
After winning his first Formula One Driver's Championship in 2021, Max Verstappen had a rough start to the season. He finished 19th in Bahrain and retired from the Australian Grand Prix due to a fuel leak. Despite his struggles, Verstappen still remains a top contender this season.

Despite his struggles, Verstappen's odds to win are almost in line with Leclerc's. This suggests that the oddsmakers believe that his early struggles were due to luck and not his actual performance.

Carlos Sainz (+850)
Behind Leclerc in the driver standings is teammate Carlos Sainz, who has two third-place finishes this season. However, like Verstappen, he was forced to retire early due to an issue with his steering wheel.

Verstappen's retirement on Australian GP

Through the first three races of the season, it's clear that Verstappen is the closest challenger to Leclerc. However, despite his recent retirement, the reigning champion is only sixth in the championship.

It's too early to tell if the gap between Leclerc and Verstappen will close. However, the Red Bull team's performance during the first three races has shown that they are letting their driver down.

Aside from the fuel issues, Verstappen also experienced a lack of balance during practice sessions. This issue, combined with the team's decision to favor low-drag setups, affected his qualifying performance.

Like in Bahrain, the RB18 struggled to find its way through the Pirelli tires. Like his teammate, the Dutch driver also experienced graining in both stints.

With Verstappen's retirement, Red Bull's Sergio Perez was able to secure second place at the Australian Grand Prix. Lewis Hamilton, on the other hand, is off to an uncharacteristically slow start to the season. Despite being slightly ahead of Verstappen in the driver standings, Hamilton has only managed to finish third in the first three races of the season.
