Minty Bets breaks down her top F1 plays for the Spanish Grand Prix.
- I'm Minty Bets and I'm here to give you my favorite picks for the Spanish Grand Prix taking place on Sunday. Starting with a top-10 pick, I'm looking at Alex Albon. In the last three races he's qualified at really low positions, but has driven his way up to P11 or better. In two of the last three races, he finished with points, so I expect him to finish with points again in Spain on Sunday.
For a top-six pick I'm looking at Lando Norris. He's finished top-10 in three of his last four races. And if it weren't for late contact between him and Pierre Gasly in Miami two weeks ago, I truly believe he would have finished top-10 in four straight races. He's outperformed his teammate Daniel Ricciardo all season long, so I like him to bounce back strong and avoid mistakes.
Next, all eyes should be on Fernando Alonso and Carlos Sainz to win here in their home country. But let's be real. Since 2014 Mercedes, Red Bull, and Ferrari have the most podium finishes at the Spanish Grand Prix, so that excludes Fernando Alonso. That leaves us with Carlos Sainz. If he's not having issues on the track, he's finished top-three in all the races this season, so I like Carlos Sainz to get a podium finish.
And for the winner of the race, I like Max Verstappen. He won in Miami two weeks ago by overtaking Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz. He's earned a podium finish in six in his last seven in Spain, so I like him to pull off a back-to-back win.
