The Formula 1 season rolls onto Mexico City this weekend for the 2019 running of the Mexican Grand Prix. This is an important fixture on the calendar and the results here could make or break a driver’s season, depending on how he performs. Here are our top Mexican Grand Prix betting tips and predictions.
A Closer Look
The campaign is now entering the home straight. However, there are a few more twists and turns in the road to come before we see our champion crowned. Has Mercedes already wrapped up the constructor’s championship? Will Lewis Hamilton add the driver’s world championship to the trophy cabinet? It’s certainly looking that way.
The Mexican Grand Prix gets started on Friday 25 October with practice, before qualifying is staged a day later. The race itself goes on Sunday. Who will cross the line first? Bookies have had their say on the matter and price Charles Leclerc as the favourite with 2/1 available at Ladbrokes. That comes as a bit of a surprise to us here as Lewis Hamilton has much more to play for and looks a better investment at the prices.
The Brit for Winner’s Podium?
The Brit is edging towards another title and can put one hand on the trophy with a win in Mexico City. That’s certainly what we expect to see and are delighted to report, at the time of writing, Bet365 is offering a market best price of 5/2 on Hamilton. That looks a real value bet and we’re more than happy to get stuck in. The man at the top of the leader board is better than his price suggests, performed well in Japan last week and it would come as no surprise to see him do the business here.
