Austria F1 Grand Prix Betting Tips 10/07/2022
The tense Formula 1 season continues this weekend as the 20 drivers head to the Austrian Grand Prix, so you can enjoy our Austria F1 Grand Prix Betting Tips here. This will be the final race before the summer break, and it will be a good chance for some teams to secure further points before returning to France in late July. Red Bull will fancy their chances at their home Grand Prix as they aim to extend their 2022 season lead in both the constructors and drivers’ championships. But Ferrari and Mercedes showed strength at Silverstone last weekend and a win here could pile the pressure on Red Bull. The race starts at 2 p.m. on Sunday. It will be shown live on Sky Sports.
Red Bull continues to lead the way in this season’s Constructor’s Championship standings. They have 304 points already this season and the team sits 76 points clear of chasing Ferrari. Among the drivers, Verstappen is the clear leader in the standings after winning five of the last six races this season. The Dutch driver is on 181 points and 34 ahead of teammate Sergio Perez (147). However, Charles Leclerc is hot chasing down the Red Bull pair on 138 points, while Carlos Sainz moved up to fourth in the standings on 127 points after his first-ever Grand Prix win.
Firstly, looking at the Austrian Grand Prix race winner odds, Max Verstappen is the clear favourite to lead the pack once more. However, after a seventh-place finish at Silverstone last weekend, the other drivers will feel confident in challenging the Dutch racer. Carlos Sainz secured his first Grand Prix win at the British Grand Prix, and he is given 11/1 odds by Unibet to win again at the Red Bull Ring. Lewis Hamilton is also finding form, finishing on the podium in his last two races. The British driver also won in Austria in 2016, and he is backed at 12/1 by William Hill to win again at the Red Bull Ring. However, Verstappen has dominated this race in recent years, and he will be eager to get back to winning ways after he finished seventh last weekend. At 11/8, Betfred is offering the best value for the Dutch driver to win again.
The top three places this season have been controlled by Red Bull, Mercedes and Ferrari. As a result, there is good value on backing a driver from these teams to reach the podium again in Austria. Firstly, Betfred is providing 1/1 odds for Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz and Red Bull’s Sergio Perez to finish in the top three. These could be solid choices considering Sainz has finished third or better in three of the last four races. Perez has also been consistent, reaching the podium in four of his last five. But our podium picks this weekend is Lewis Hamilton. The Mercedes superstar has finished third in his last two races, and he is showing signs of a return to form. He has also finished runner-up in three of his last four Austrian Grand Prix races and at 9/4, offered by Bet365, Hamilton can finish in the top three again.
Looking further down the standings, there are some clear picks among the drivers for points finish in Austria. Alpine’s Fernando Alonso has been consistent recently, finishing in the points in his last five races. However, his odds are low with Betfred offering 4/9. But Estaban Ocon could be a better value option, and he is our selection in this market. Ocon did not finish the British Grand Prix, but he has been in a solid recent form otherwise, getting points in seven of his last ten races. Betfair has the best odds for an Ocon points finish at 1/1.
