Monaco’s Intensity Will Prove Tough
Monaco’s intense street-circuit is without a doubt the most iconic track in all of Formula 1. Its tight turns, difficult grip, and iconic background is what professional drivers dream of. Each year the race proves to be difficult yet exciting, and the race has not produced a repeat winner since 2014-15. Can Max Verstappen repeat his victory from last season, or will the trend continue?
Let’s check the latest news, stats, reports, and Formula 1 odds for Grand Prix of Monaco. We’ve plenty of predictions for you to consider.
Charles Leclerc Looks for First Monaco Grand Prix Victory
Until this past weekend Ferrari and Charles Leclerc were in the lead of the Championship. For the first time since the season has started, they sit in second place in both the Drivers and Constructors Championships.
Now Leclerc will return to his home nation of Monaco for the seventh race of the season. In three Formula 1 races at Monaco’s historic circuit, Leclerc has never finished. His hometown fans surely are expecting more out of him this year and so is Vegas, as Leclerc is currently listed as the favorite (even money) on the Formula 1 betting odds.
Ferrari’s car is built for Monaco’s tight track. The downforce on their car is very strong and they don’t need straight line speed as much on this track, which is good because they don’t have it. I like Leclerc as a Formula 1 betting pick this weekend in Monaco at even money.
Running of the Red Bulls
Last week in Spain Red Bull took home a huge victory with Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez finishing one and two respectively at the Spanish GP. Now Verstappen looks for his fourth consecutive victory.
Red Bull will have their hands full however as Monaco’s circuit does not favor their car and it’s phenomenal straight line speed.
Sergio Perez will certainly have a good race as he is the king of tire management, which will be important in Monaco. Perez is a +1600 underdog according to the Formula 1 betting lines which is a very solid shot for such a good driver. Perez is a great Formula 1 betting pick for this weekend’s Monaco Grand Prix.
Head to Head F1 results
Verstappen has won four of the six races, including the last three in a row. Max holds the lead of the drivers Championship with 110 points. CHarles Leclerc has won the other two races and is six points back with 104. It should be noted that Max has won every race that he has finished this year.
Perez and Carlos Sainz have been incredible second drivers for their teams and are currently third and fifth in the standings respectively. Sainz is a +1600 underdog in possibly the best car on the track for this race. The formula 1 betting odds have this one wrong in my eyes because Leclerc has been so consistently bad at this track.

Best Bets-Leclerc: Even, Sainz: +1600
Both Leclerc and Sainz are incredible drivers, but even more importantly the Ferrari car is built for this track. It’s high downforce, quickness through tight turns, and excellent braking is going to be vital at this iconic track in Monaco. My Formula 1 betting pick includes both Ferrari drivers this week.
Without a doubt, the Ferrari’s should be favored at this track this year, and due to its narrow width and cramped corners, a crash can happen at any moment. If Leclerc or Verstappen are taken out, Sainz could have a clear shot at victory.
BET THIS PICK: Carlos Sainz +1600 at
