Australian Grand Prix 2023 Preview

The Saudi Arabian GP proved some points that were hanging in the air ever since the testing sessions ended. Firstly, Red Bull are surely going to dominate the season, with odds at Bet365 proving this fact. Both races were won by RB drivers, Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez, and both of them were won with a good 15-20 second gap to the third place finisher, Fernando Alonso.

Yes, Aston Martin’s good pace in both of the races proved the second point – Aston Martin can be good on very different tracks. Sakhir and Jeddah are similar only in terms that both are nighttime races, and that is it. Different asphalt traction, tyre wear, nature of the track, sets of turns. Aston Martin might look good on any type of circuit. Both Alonso and Stroll had a great weekend, although the latter had to retire, which dwindled the teams’ chances of scoring big points. Still, Alonso’s performance was impeccable, regardless of the 5-second penalty he had got during the starting procedure.

Mercedes are still a work-in-progress at the moment, trying to figure out whether they need another car or try to improve the one that they have. Their result in Jeddah was still not what they wanted at the beginning of the season and what online sportsbooks in Australia predicted. Nevertheless, they managed to overtake both Ferraris, which is in itself a good result. They did not expect to have an opponent such as Aston Martin, though.

Ferrari’s pace was below expectations. Both Sainz and Leclerc could not reach Mercedes’ drivers. In fact, David Croft in Sky Sports F1 podcast said that he had spoken to Ferrari’s racing engineer and asked if they turned down their engines after pit stops, to which he received a negative response. The season and the next race are going to be tough for the Maranello team, according to the Australian Grand Prix 2023 preview by various experts. 

Australian GP Predictions and Betting Odds

The Australian Grand Prix will take place between March 31 – April 2 and if the Red Bulls again are winning it by 20 seconds from anyone else, the season is doomed to be theirs. However, who is going to be among the best and worst Formula 1 teams this year is still a question. 

Surely, Verstappen’s odds are better than everyone else’s. Perez’s chances for the title depend fully on him and whether he is ready to go all-in against Max, just like Nico Rosberg did against Hamilton in 2016. What is interesting, Nico had never been really considered as talented as Lewis, but he still managed to beat him. Who knows what we are going to see this season.

Albert Park is a mid-high downforce type of track which affects tyre degradation on a larger level than Jeddah, closer to Sakhir. It is safe to assume that we are going to see a Red Bull finishing 1st and 2nd. Also, a great battle for the 3rd place between Aston Martin, Ferrari, and Mercedes can take place this time.

Anyway, here are the latest odds at online gambling sites in Australia on the Australian GP winner:

  • Max Verstappen – 1.46
  • Sergio Perez – 4.44
  • Fernando Alonso – 11.50
  • Charles Leclerc – 15.00
  • Lance Stroll – 22.00
  • George Russell – 27.00
  • Lewis Hamilton – 27.00
  • Esteban Ocon – 53.00
  • Pierre Gasly – 551.00
  • Alex Albon – 551.00
