Italian Grand Prix will be the first race in 2019 for a driver to lead the odds other than Lewis Hamilton. That driver is the Ferrari youngster Charles Leclerc. With home advantage, Leclerc is indeed favored by Italian Grand Prix 2019 betting predictions to capture back-to-back victories.
Formula 1 heads to Monza Circuit on September 6-8. The circuit located to the east of Italy’s fashion capital Milan is one of the fastest tracks on the calendar. The venue is 5.793 km long, with 53 laps. Interestingly, showers are expected by the online sportsbook news in Italy on the day of the race.
Italian GP is naturally special for Scuderia Ferrari. Therefore, Ferrari have to do something very wrong not to deliver a victory in front of their adoring Tifosi. However, it is Charles Leclerc, not Sebastian Vettel who leads the Italian Grand Prix 2019 betting predictions and odds. Behind Leclerc comes the defending champion Lewis Hamilton who looks forward to bouncing back from the Belgian defeat.
Leclerc was utterly brilliant in Belgium
After the disappointment of losing a potential win in Bahrain, Baku, and Austria, Charles Leclerc finally got one on the line. He won his first F1 race ever in Belgium, a day after his friend Anthoine Hubert, the F2 driver was killed in a collision at the circuit. Although it was one of the most difficult and emotional weeks for motorsport, Leclerc was utterly brilliant.
The 21-year-old did not only capture a victory, but he also registered Ferrari’s first win of 2019. In a blink of an eye, another race is kicking off, and Leclerc looks forward to outpowering Mercedes at his team’s home Grand Prix in Italy. If you think this is the beginning of Leclerc’s era, place a bet with 2.37 odds at Bet365 Sportsbook on him to capture another victory.
Hamilton won Italian GB five times
Hamilton has fond memories of Italy after winning five times at Monza. The latest to come in 2018. The only driver who won the Italian GP as many times as Hamilton is Michael Schumacher. Hamilton now holds a 65-point championship lead with just eight races remaining. He appears well on course to become just the second driver in history to win six world titles. However, he lost his dominance recently with only two wins in the last five races. Should Hamilton correctly use his experience against Leclerc who is yet to find consistency, Hamilton might win with 2.75 odds.
Vettel’s drought stretches beyond a full year
The next potential title contender is Sebastian Vettel with 3.75 odds at Bet365 Sportsbook. He is one of the top competitors with a lot of positive experience of the venue, winning there in 2008, 2011, and 2013. However, the four-time world champion Vettel’s victory drought has stretched beyond a full year. Therefore, anyone backing Vettel will do so with caution given the lack his of victories.
Verstappen expects a setback for Red Bull in Italy
Red Bull’s superstar Max Verstappen has secured his spot among the top drivers at online sportsbook sites in Italy after winning in Austria and Germany. Yet, Verstappen has already given his Italian Grand Prix 2019 betting predictions, expecting another week of setbacks for Red Bull. He thinks Red Bull’s engines will struggle to cope with the track in Italy. So, it is better to avoid picking him this time, as his odds stand at 26.00.
