The British driver holds many records to his name and numbers show that he is miles ahead of everyone else. Hamilton holds the record for most wins, poles, championships, and more.

Red bull were able to finally provide him with a machinery that can compete with Hamilton and Mercedes. However, there are rumors of the team focusing too much on the 2021 car which will put them on the backfoot in the upcoming season.

Based on their performance in the previous season, 22BET Sportsbook put Verstappen and Red Bull as the 2nd favorite in their Bahrain Grand Prix early predictions. The betting odds for the world champion to kick-off the season with a win are 3.24.

Will Charles Leclerc Make The Breakthrough?

Russell has previously shown what he can do in a Mercedes in 2020 after replacing Lewis in the Sakhir Grand Prix and came close to winning the race. Therefore, it is not unlikely to start the season with a strong performance. As a result, 22BET Sportsbook put him as the 3rd favorite in Bahrain Grand Prix early predictions, and his odds stand at 7.00. Do you think the youngster will be able to beat Lewis?

Bahrain Grand Prix Early Predictions – Carlos Sainz Showed Quality in 2021

At the beginning of 2021, no one would have predicted the performance Carlos Sainz put on in the season. The 27-year-old was going to take the role of the second driver and support Charles Leclerc. However, he was consistent throughout the season and even managed to beat his teammate. Sainz finished his first season with Ferrari 5.5 points ahead of Leclerc. Therefore, with more time to prepare for the new season and adapt the car, expect him to be even better in 2022. In addition, Ferrari will not be treating him as the second driver anymore which gives him better chances at winning more races. As a result, online sportsbook sites in the United Kingdom put him just behind Leclerc in their Bahrain Grand Prix early predictions. At 22BET Sportsbook, the betting odds for Sainz to win the first race of the season are 13.00.

Bahrain Grand Prix Early Predictions for the Other Drivers

If you believe that none of the previous names will win the Bahrain Grand Prix, bookies provide you with every other possible option. On top of this list is Red Bull’s Sergio Perez who played a significant part in helping Max win his first championship.

Regardless of that, he opens as the 6th favorite in the Bahrain Grand Prix early predictions with odds at 17.00. In addition to that, bookies offer you the opportunity to bet on other drivers as well as the table below shows.
