2022 Singapore Grand Prix Outright Odds
Verstappen: The Path to a Second Straight Title
Installed as the runaway favorite here, Verstappen looks to win his sixth straight race and his 12th overall this 2022 season. Should Verstappen win in Singapore, he will be just one shy of tying the single-season record for wins with 13 with five more races to go. However, that’s not all that’s at stake, as Verstappen can clinch his second straight world title should things break the right way.
Verstappen has a dominant 116-point lead ahead of Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc. He needs to outscore the Monegasque driver by 22 points to beat him for the title. Also in contention are Sergio Perez, Verstappen’s teammate, and Mercedes’ George Russell. The Belgian-Dutchman will need to outscore Perez by 13 and Russell by six.
The best scenario for Verstappen is for him to win the race and gain the fastest lap while Leclerc finishes no better than eighth and Perez fourth or worse. If Verstappen can’t get that extra point, Leclerc will need to finish ninth or lower and Perez fifth or worse.
The online sports betting odds have Verstappen favored for the fastest lap at even money (Ev). However, Leclerc is also expected to finish on the podium (-225) while he and Perez are even heavier favorites to finish in the top-six with implied probabilities at 80 percent or better.
Ferrari: Ready For a Resurgence?
Sitting 139 points behind Red Bull, Ferrari is far from second place in the constructors’ standings. But a 1-2 finish here in Singapore can give the team a glimmer of hope even if it will not change their fate. The last time Ferrari was in Marina Bay; they finished 1-2 with Vettel and Leclerc. In fact, Vettel’s win was upset as the German had not won a race all season.
Now, both Leclerc and Carlos Sainz are distant runner-ups to upset Verstappen for the win in Singapore. Leclerc is at 4-1, while Sainz is at 10-1. The pair have combined to win four races this year, three fewer than their combined retirements with seven.
Leclerc has picked up some momentum with consecutive podium finishes in the last two races though he has not won since Austria five races ago. As for Sainz, the Spaniard has had one podium finish since he won the British Grand Prix six races ago.
Vettel: One Last Hurrah?
Having announced his retirement, Vettel could add some sizzle to his mini-farewell tour with a notable result in Singapore. The four-time champion has the record for most wins on the course with five. He is the last Red Bull driver to win and the defending champion.
However, Vettel has yet to finish on the podium this season. This would explain his astronomical odds of 100-1 to finish in the top three. Vettel’s best result this season was a sixth-place finish in Azerbaijan, a race where Leclerc and Sainz both retired.
Aston Martin sits in second-last place in the constructors’ standings with 25 points. The most realistic positive outcome for them is for Vettel and/or Lance Stroll to finish in the top 10 for some points. They’re both listed at +135 to do so. The only time both finished in the top 10 was in the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix back in April, but at least it’s worth a bet online on Vettel.
