United States Grand Prix Predictions And Latest F1 Odds 

As Red Bull look poised to take the first non-Mercedes Constructors crown in the turbo-hybrid era, all the talk amongst the paddock will be around whether the team’s cost cap breach has garnered a substantial enough penalty. Regardless, unless Ferrari outscores them by 19 points in Austin, Red Bull will leave the States with their first Constructors title since Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber in 2013. 

Our Prediction

Mercedes haven’t had a winless season since 2011, but time is running out for the side if they want to keep this record intact. The side’s season has been a frustrating series of races where it looks like serious progress has been made, only for things to slip back again after. 

The team are set to bring their final upgrades to their car for the weekend, in what is looking like a final roll of the dice for P2 in the Constructors. The last two racedays have been tough for the side, but an F1 world without a Mercedes win in the calendar seems too unthinkable for us. 

At times, Lewis Hamilton has shown he is still capable of being the fastest man on the track so, for Austin, a track that he has won 5 times, this could be the weekend where everything clicks into place for the Brit. 

In our latest F1 odds at BetUS, you can get Lewis Hamilton to win the US Grand Prix at a +700. World Champion Max Verstappen is still the heavy favourite with the markets however at -225, with Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc and teammate Sergio Perez behind him at +500 and +700 respectively.
