Portuguese Grand Prix Betting Tips
Note: The following tips are from the 2020 grand prix. Tips for next year will be added the week of the race.
The 2020 Portuguese Grand Prix will take place at the Autodromo Internacional do Algarve in Portimão, Portugal this weekend. This will be the 12th Grand Prix on the revised 2020 calendar, with just five scheduled races left after this one. It will also be the first Portuguese Grand Prix for 24 years. All eyes will be on Lewis Hamilton, as the current World Champion bids to make history and become Formula One’s most successful driver in terms of race wins. However, teammate Valtteri Bottas and Red Bull’s Max Verstappen will be desperate to stop the Brit in his tracks.
As expected, Hamilton is the odds-on favourite to secure yet another race win, with the bookies pricing the 35 year old at odds of just 2/5 to finish on the top of the podium for an eighth time this season. Bottas is the second favourite at a price of 7/2, while Verstappen is currently available at an almost-temping 9/2. Verstappen has had a good season so far, winning the 70th Anniversary Grand Prix in Britain and chalking up an impressive 147 points from 11 races, but has he got what it takes to get the better of Hamilton? It’s going to be quite a race, but who will be crowned 2020 Portuguese Grand Prix winner on Sunday?
Lewis Hamilton to Win & Fastest Lap – 6/4
Lewis Hamilton has looked unstoppable so far this season. Since starting the campaign in Austria with a fourth place finish, the Stevenage-born star has finished on the podium in all bar one Grand Prix. Hamilton has without doubt been the dominant force in the sport once again this year, winning a staggering seven of the opening 11 rounds. Having picked up wins in Styria, Hungary, Britain, Spain, Belgium and Italy, Hamilton’s victory at the Eifel Grand Prix in Germany last time out lifted him on to 230 championship points.
The reigning champion also equalled the great Michael Schumacher’s record for race wins with victory at the Nurburgring. The German picked up 91 Grand Prix victories during his illustrious 21-year career in F1, with the last of those coming in China in 2006. Hamilton, who first won in Canada in 2007, has also won 91 races. Victory for the No. 44 driver on Sunday would make Hamilton the most successful driver in Formula One history. We can see the Brit dominating this race, like he so often does, so have a punt on Hamilton to get the fastest lap and to win the Grand Prix at odds of 6/4.
Daniel Ricciardo Top Three Finish – 11/4
After a slow start to his season, Daniel Ricciardo is beginning to get the best out of his Renault car. The Australian ace retired in the first Grand Prix in Austria before picking up two eighth place finishes. Sandwiched in between two disappointing Grands Prix in Britain (the 70th Anniversary Grand Prix) and Spain came fourth positions at Silverstone (in the British Grand Prix) and Spa in Belgium.
Ricciardo has been far more consistent in recent races, finishing fourth, fifth and third in his last three races. At the Eifel Grand Prix last time out, the Perth man finished behind Hamilton and Verstappen for his first rostrum of the season. The popular Aussie will be keen to build on that with another strong race in Portugal at the weekend. You can get a price of 11/4 for Ricciardo to finish in the top three at the Autodromo Internacional do Algarve, which looks decent enough value to us.
