Canadian F1 Gran Prix Betting Tips & Preview 19/06/2022

Formula 1 betting tips

The 2022 Formula 1 season is in full swing and Red Bull has taken the pole position in a bid to snatch the title from their rivals Mercedes. Action returns this weekend as the racers head to the 4.5-kilometre Circuit in Gilles-Villeneuve, Montreal, so it’s time for our Canadian F1 Gran Prix Betting Tips & Preview. Red Bull and driver leaders Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez will also be hoping to extend their leads in the standings as we approach the midway stage of the season. The Canadian Grand Prix starts on Sunday 19th June at 7p.m and the action will be shown live on Sky Sports. 


Red Bull duo Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez have fully taken control of the driver standings in recent races. One of the pair has won the last five races, with Verstappen claiming first in four of these. The upturn in form has seen the early challenge from Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz and Charles Leclerc fall behind, as the young drivers have struggled to reclaim a solid start to the season. In the constructors’ championship, Red Bull remains firmly in control, and they are 80 points ahead of second-place Ferrari, while defending champions Mercedes are over 100 points behind in third. 

Race Winner Betting Tips

Firstly, looking at the race winner for the Canadian Grand Prix, Max Verstappen is the leading favourite to win his fifth race in six. The Dutch Red Bull driver has also won five of the eight races in 2022 and Sky Bet have him as the clear favourite at 10/11. However, there are some alternatives, better value picks this weekend. Verstappen’s Red Bull teammate Sergio Perez has been in consistent form this season, and the Mexican racer won in Monaco two weeks ago. At 4/1, provided by Unibet, there is good value on a Perez victory in Montreal. 

Winning Team Betting

Further value at the Canadian Grand Prix can be found in the winning team. Red Bull again are the favourites to win the race after Perez and Verstappen finished as winners in six of the eight Grand Prix this season. At 2/5, offered by Coral, they are clear favourites to win, and we are backing the in-form team in Montreal. However, Ferrari has a solid history in Canada and the Italian heavyweights have the most wins at this Grand Prix than any other team (14). In addition, Leclerc and Sainz are the two standout competitors to Red Bull this season and Ferrari represents a solid alternative to get a win at Gilles-Villeneuve with William Hill offering good odds at 9/4. 

Podium Finish Bet Tips

Although we expect a fierce contest between Red Bull and Ferrari at the Canadian Grand Prix, our podium finish comes from a consistent Mercedes performer this season. Geroge Russell has taken to the Mercedes seat expertly this season, finishing in the top five in all eight races and securing a podium spot in three races in 2022. With Russel performing consistently throughout the current season, there is good value on the Englishman to secure another top three position in Montreal. With 3/1 odds, provided by Bet365, Russell represents a good option outside the race favourites to get on the podium again. 

The chasing pack of constructors will have to act quickly to chase down the leading Red Bull in the 2022 Formula 1 season. Similarly, the top racers in the field also have work to do to catch the presently outstanding Verstappen and Perez to prevent a Red Bull run away. Can Ferrari and Mercedes find the form to mount a serious title challenge?
