Lewis Hamilton is undoubtedly the man to beat this weekend in the penultimate race of the season in the Brazilian Grand Prix.
The Mercedes driver claimed his sixth world title in USA last time out. He is, however, not finished yet, and will once again be hungry for success in Sao Paulo on Sunday.
He remains in a comfortable lead in the Drivers standings on 381 points after his latest win. But fellow Mercedes driver Valtteri Bottas will be keen to close that gap when they come together again at the Autodromo Jose Carlos Pace.
Hamilton, is however, favourite to clinch another victory over 71 laps of the 4.309 kilometre track. The Briton is currently 7/4 to secure the win, with Bottas available at 9/2.
Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc has burst onto the scene to storm to third place in the overall leaderboard.
The 22-year-old’s odds to win have, however, risen to 14/1 after it was announced that he will face a 10-place grid penalty after engine failure last time out.
Max Verstappen and Sebastian Vettel complete the top five. Verstappen can be backed at 7/2 to leave Brazil victorious, with Vettel available at 5/1.
Those five are seemingly a sure-thing to clinch the top five spots in another highly-anticipated Brazilian Grand Prix. And it’s the top three of that leaderboard who have been backed to clinch a podium finish at the end of the race.
There are, of course, several outsiders looking to cause a huge upset when they meet the stars of the sport on Sunday. Red Bull’s Alexander Albon has been given odds of 100/1 by several bookmakers. And Australian Daniel Ricciardo is available at 500/1 to win in Sao Paulo.
Mercedes unsurprisingly lead the Constructors standing, well ahead of Ferrari and Red Bull in second and third respectively.
Hamilton’s team are favourites at 3/4 to extend their lead at the top with another win. And it’s currently 2/1 for a Ferrari victory and 37/13 for Red Bull to take first place.
McLaren and Renault complete the top five. The former is a massive 500/1 to pull off a major shock and be the winning team. And the latter are even bigger outsiders at 750/1.
The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix brings to a close another eventful F1 season at the end of the month. But all eyes will undoubtedly be on Sao Paolo come Sunday.
