Minty Bets breaks down her top F1 plays for the inaugural Miami Grand Prix due to be held on Sunday, May 8th.
MINTY BETS: It's the debut of the Miami Grand Prix this Sunday. I'm Minty Bets here to give you my favorite picks for Formula 1 this weekend. Starting with a top-six finish, I'm looking at George Russell at minus 165. Now, it's a little pricey but hear me out. He's one of the most consistent drivers in terms of finishes. He's finished top five in all four races this season. And all year long he's outperformed his teammate Lewis Hamilton. So it should be more fuel for him to continue this streak.
I'm also looking at Lando Norris, minus 155. He's been pretty sneaky with the McLaren, finishing top 10 in three straight races. So I like him to finish top six. For a top-three finish I like Sergio Perez, minus 105. Checo has back-to-back P2 finishes. And I'm liking him to go off of that momentum and get a podium finish here in Miami.
Now onto the fastest lap, I like Charles Leclerc at plus 150. He's recorded the fastest lap in three of four races, but due to some greedy mistakes made at the Imola Grand Prix, Max Verstappen ended up sweeping that race. I like Leclerc to get back on top with the fastest lap in this one.
As for the winner of the inaugural Miami Grand Prix, it's either between Max Verstappen or Charles Leclerc. Due to some reliability issues Red Bull has, I'm going to go with Charles Leclerc to bounce back strong from Italy and win this race at plus 150. To recap my F1 picks, I'm on George Russell and Lando Norris to finish top six, Sergio Perez to finish top three, Charles Leclerc to record the fastest lap, and Charles Leclerc to win the race.
