Verstappen’s name was hot on online sportsbook news sites in Hungary last week due to his swearing on team radio. After his car had another engine failure, he could not suppress his anger, using the F-word a number of times. He has since apologized for the rant, but maintains that “the disappointment” over having to retire from the fifth place “is still there.”
According to the best online betting sites in the United Kingdom, the next race may compensate for that unlucky engine failure: Max Verstappen’s Belgian GP odds are favorable. His chances of winning the GP are estimated at 10/1 (i.e., 11.00). Will he indeed climb to the top of the podium?
Verstappen’s history with the Belgian GP
So far, the driver has not had much success in the country where he was born. In 2017, he had to retire from the race. In 2016, he failed to grab points, finishing 11th. His best finish in Belgium was in 2015, when he finished 8th.
However, those statistics are somewhat misleading: the Spa-Francorchamps circuit does suit Verstappen. It was in Belgium that he overtook Felipe Nasr on the outside of the Blanchimont corner. That manoeuver even earned him the Action of the Year Award. That Verstappen has not stood on the Belgian podium yet is partly due to bad luck. Sooner or later, he will certainly begin to amaze spectators at the Spa-Francorchamps, and it is sensible to bet on that tendency to start this year.
