Formula 1 Preview Top 5 odds

Charles Leclerc is off to a fantastic start to the Formula 1 season as he looks to win for the third time in four races. this is quite  turn around as in 2021 he hit the podium only once. He has the best odd for this race on this day at +120 but history doesn’t bode well for him except in recent times. In the Formula a points standings he has 71 and second place is at 37.He finished fourth in 2021 and fifth in 2020.

Max Verstappen isn’t far behind him with +165. He won in Saudi Arabia but was forced out last weekend due to a fuel leak. He was the winner of this race lst season and should be considered a major threat to win.

the third best odds belong to Carlos Sainz at +850. He drive s a Ferrari and is a teammate of Leclerc. Already he has been to two podiums this season. He was forced out by a steering wheel issue. He is a major threat to win.

Next best odds go to Sergio Perez at +1200. He got second in Australia this year. Last year he won the Azerbajian Grand Prix. Finishing off the top five is Lewis Hamilton at +1400. He is a n experienced driver and seven time champion. He has one podium this year.

Formula 1 Pick

It’s hard not to bet the favorite as he and his car have been very good. But my bet goes to his teammate Carlos Sainz at +850 to win.

I always give a longshot and today I will bet Lando Norris +8,000. It’s time for the Mc Laren team to shine. He has be ahead of his teammate Daniel Ricciardo, whom I also like to win on “home track’ in Italy.


Some residents want to stop the race…. Here is the article excerpts.

Weeks before the scheduled debut of Formula 1’s Miami race, local residents are suing to stop the event from happening.

Miami Gardens residents filed a lawsuit to cancel the much-anticipated race on the grounds that noise from the May 6-8 event will “cause severe disruption and physical harm to Miami Gardens residents.”

The plaintiffs, led by former Miami-Dade County commissioner Betty Ferguson, drew on findings from an engineering firm that the race will produce noise levels up to 97 decibels, “similar to the sound levels produced by a chainsaw,” within a 2.5 mile radius.
