Another week in Formula 1, another winner for Before You Bet followers! We tipped Max Verstappen to finish on the podium at the German Grand Prix on the weekend and the Dutch driver just decided to win instead!
That makes it seven winners in the last eight races in the Formula 1 season for Before You Bet and we won’t have to wait long to find our next winner as the tour heads to Mogyorod for the annual Hungarian Grand Prix.
We have a full preview and betting tips for the weekend’s action below.
With his second win of the season, Red Bull driver Max Verstappen drew to within just 22 points of Valtteri Bottas, who currently sits in second place on the standings. Verstappen became just the third player to win multiple races in 2019 after the year has been largely dominanted by the pair of Mercedes drivers in Bottas and Lewis Hamilton.
Sebastian Vettel climbed from the back of the grid to finish second in his home grand prix, picking up his fifth podium finish in the process while his teammate, Charles Leclerc, was forced to retire from the race.
Lewis Hamilton failed to finish on the podium for just the second time this year and snapped a streak that saw him win five of the last six races. He still site a ridiculous 41 points clear atop the drivers standings in 2019 after his teammate, Bottas, was also forced to retire.
The Hungaroring in Mogyoród, Hungary, has been the official host of the Hungarian Grand Prix since the its re-introduction to the F1 circuit back in 1986. Hungary had only hosted one race prior to 1986, all the was back in 1936 when Italian Tazio Nuvolari won at the street track at Nepliget Park in Budapest.
Since 1986, Lewis Hmailton is the winningest driver at the Hungaroring, with a total of six race wins while Michael Schumacher was successful in the Hungarian Grand Prix four times. Sebastian Vettel has two wins at the Hungaroring while Daniel Ricciardo and Kimi Raikkonen are the other two current drivers to have won in Hungary.
The main feature of the Hungaroring used to be the bumpy nature of the surface, however, after a recent resurface, the track has become much more flat, and unfortunately, the race is less interesting because of it. There aren’t many high speed corners around the track although it is quite technical and tight, there is still a high number of overtaking opportunities.
Lewis Hmailton had a down week in Germany, which isn’t his favourite track in the Forumla 1 circuit. Hungary, however, might be. He has been absolutely dominant at the Hungaroring over the last decade, winning six races since the 2007 season.
His odds should be inflated a touch due to a pretty poor performance in Germany but expect him to be back on top of his game this weekend, where he is much more comfortable. At ___ to win, we think he is great value.
