2019 Italian GP podium

Provided by Bookiesbonuses.com – the #1 online betting comparison site. Max Verstappen made it four wins in a row for the first time in his career in Zandvoort on Sunday.

Heading to the Italian Grand Prix at Monza, the Dutchman is priced at 4/11 to make it five from five as he closes in on the 2022 Formula 1 World Drivers Championship.

It’s becoming harder and harder to look past Verstappen to take the chequered flag with each race that passes by, but behind him, the gap between Charles Leclerc and the Mercedes drivers has closed up after Lewis Hamilton’s near-miss at the Dutch Grand Prix.

Mercedes’ decision to allow George Russell to pit behind the safety car and let Verstappen through essentially ended Lewis Hamilton’s hopes of victory in the Netherlands, but both Brits put themselves in a position to possibly win the race.

As a result, Hamilton is 8/1 and Russell is 10/1 to triumph at Monza whereas they were 14/1 and 16/1 respectively last time out.

“We had pace. The car was different to how it had been all year long,” said said Hamilton after his fourth-place finish. “When I got up to second, I had that hard tyre on and I was catching them and I was thinking: ‘We might be fighting for a win here and potentially a one-two’.”

Leclerc, meanwhile, was 4/1 a week ago but is out to 13/2 for Ferrari’s second home race of the campaign.

Neither Carlos Sainz or Sergio Perez have threatened to win a race since the British Grand Prix, so they are both understandably outsiders this week.

Leclerc had a fairly quiet race on Sunday but he was able to capitalise on Hamilton’s misfortune and take third – his first podium since Austria.

The Monegasque driver’s form in the meantime was DNF-6-6 but he is odds-on at 5/8 to secure another podium at Monza.

Hamilton is 4/6 for the top three, while Perez is 17/20, Russell is 23/20, and Sainz is 9/4.

Fernando Alonso and Lando Norris remain the best of the rest on current form, and the Spaniard is priced at Evens to make it three top six finishes on the spin. Norris is also at Evens in the same market.

At this track last year, McLaren recorded an incredible 1-2 with Daniel Ricciardo crossing the line ahead of Lando Norris.

With odds of 1000/1, the bookies think there is more chance of Jamie Redknapp becoming the next James Bond than Ricciardo winning again at Monza this year.
