Formula 1: Monaco Grand Prix

21.05.2021

With the Grand Prix of Monaco, the Formula 1 season is set for its most glamourous excursion! This Sunday, the F1 circus descends on the Principality of Monaco on the beautiful French Rivièra. Are you ready to place your best bets on this prestigious racing event?

This Grand Prix was ominously absent from last year’s season, but 2021 sees the resurgence of the legendary race. Back in 2019, it was the inevitable Lewis Hamilton who won the race for his team Mercedes. Let’s see what this year’s edition has in store for us!

The race

The fifth race of the season, the Monaco Grand Prix literally takes to the streets of Monaco, whose winding coastal roads and natural hairpin turns make for a stunning backdrop for a fast and furious race. The race itself consists of 78 laps of 3.337 kilometres, coming in at a total racing distance of just over 260 kilometres. At the speed at which the cars are flying by, this’ll only take them a few hours!

The drivers

Let’s start with the obvious: Lewis Hamilton has no intent of taking a break here. The Brit’s voracious appetite has him in first place on the leaderboard, with 25 points after 4 races. Rather tellingly, he won 3 of these, started in pole position in 2, and recorded the fastest lap in 1. Will Hamilton strike again here and win the Monaco Grand Prix back-to-back?

Lewis Hamilton to win the season is already worth @1.24 – perfect for a long-haul multi bet!

Second in the ranking, we find Red Bull’s Max Verstappen, who holds 19 points. The Dutchman has been hot on the tail of Hamilton, nabbing the pole position in Bahrain and winning in Italy. Verstappen seems to be getting stronger year after year, and it seems only a matter of time before he manages to break Hamilton’s hegemony on Formula 1… Could this be his moment?

A confident bet on Max Verstappen to win this season is worth €36 on a €10 bet!

Part of the reason for Mercedes’s stunning results these last years is the chemistry between main man Hamilton and his Finnish lieutenant Valtteri Bottas. The fastest Finn alive finds himself in a worthy third place in the ranking after 4 races, after 1 pole position and 2 fastest laps. The biggest threat to Hamilton’s victory in Monaco may come from his own teammate…

The constructors

In the constructors’s competition, too, the battle will most likely be decided between Mercedes (Hamilton and Bottas) and Red Bull (Verstappen). McLaren and Ferrari are distant third and fourth in the running for the constructors championship title. Still, the season has pretty much just started, and there’s so much excitement yet to come.
