F1 constructors are on their way to Azerbaijan for another classic street race in Baku on 6 June. More excitement is expected after the title race returns to be wide open. Hamilton might be alerted that no more mistakes can be tolerated and he has to be perfect as often. Should he race at his highest level, he may take back the top spot, as per 2021 Azerbaijan GP odds.
The F1 world had a thrilling race in Monaco, seeing Verstappen victorious only when our hopes for a tough title race were fading away. The championship is now back between Verstappen and Hamilton. Besides, several prolific drivers are just behind the top two in almost every race. They are Norris, Leclerc, Sainz, Bottas, and Perez.
But who will be the winner at 2021 Azerbaijan GP odds? Frankly, upsets in Baku became a common thing. In the past three Azerbaijan editions, Daniel Riccardo, Valtteri Bottas, and Lance Stroll came out victorious. So, Hamilton has the best odds, but he might be surpassed by few other drivers at a circuit with a mixture of turns and stretches. However, we try to give our best predictions, as per online sportsbooks in Azerbaijan.
Verstappen needs to secure his top spot with another win
The brilliant young Dutchman won the Monaco GP for the first time Sunday. It was possible thus his win was not very surprising. He took the lead from the beginning and cruised comfortably until the end. However, he received a nice dose of luck after the Ferrari starlet Charles Leclerc crashed his car late in qualifying.
Verstappen returned home with a four-point lead over Hamilton in the standings (105 to 101). He will need to secure the lead with at least another strong win, as he holds only a very slight edge. Otherwise, he can easily lose the top spot on the standings to Hamilton. Therefore, you may choose Verstappen to win in Baku with 2.25 odds at Bet365 Sportsbook.
Hamilton looks to bounce back
The seven-time champion had a tough time finishing P7 in Monte Carlo. It was his worst result this season. However, it came after back-to-back wins in Portugal and Spain. Hopefully, it was only a miserable weekend and his top performance will come back on 6 June. Besides, he is driving the most suitable car for Baku. So, should everything go according to plan Hamilton may win with a 2.20 value at 2021 Azerbaijan GP odds.
Leclerc and Norris have been impressive
Nobody thought Norris could take two podiums and finish in the top five in four races. It made familiar to all analysts at online sportsbook news sites in Azerbaijan. Will he shock the fans even more and win a race? That is very possible with 41.00 odds to lead in Baku.
However, Norris is not the only surprise of the season, Leclerc also exceeded all expectations finishing twice 6th and twice 4th. He will likely come to Baku looking to improve his competition and finally secure the first podium of the season. Besides, he was just about to win Monaco before the damage was discovered just before Sunday’s race. So, you may choose Leclerc for a win at 51.00.
Three drivers will likely be close behind in Baku
The Red Bull number two driver Sergio Perez finished fourth in Monaco. He needs better results with 9.50 odds to make a shocking win in Baku. There is also Valtteri Bottas who won the last event in Baku in 2019. He will likely have enough confidence to impress again with 9.00 to surprisingly win.
What about Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz? He finished second in Monaco. It seems he is becoming more comfortable with Ferrari’s car. So, a win after his first podium in 2021 will be explosive with 81.00 to win.
