Leclerc’s Woes Continue

It was another race marked by bad luck and questionable team orders for Charles Leclerc last weekend at Silverstone. The 24-year-old looked to be well positioned to challenge for a podium for the first time in five races after finishing third in qualifying. However, after Ferrari failed to seize the opportunity to bring him in for a pit stop during a safety car midway through the contest, Leclerc was unable to maintain his lead in the race, and was forced to settle for a fourth-place finish.

Speculation about Leclerc’s relationship intensified after he engaged in an animated post-race conversation with Ferrari boss Mattia Binotto, followed by tempered comments to media. With Ferrari now increasingly looking like a house divided, sports bettors face a challenge in deciding which Prancing Horse to back this weekend.

Can’t understand why Ferrari didn’t pit Leclerc when the safety car came out?! Left him completely vulnerable to attack.

When the SC came out they had about 11 seconds to being Charles in and they inexplicably left him out

While Sainz has struggled at times to maintain control of his car on the track, he has demonstrated increased maturity as a driver. Indeed, the talented Spaniard has earned his improved odds by finishing top two in three of the past four rounds, and has also tallied fifth-place finishes in each of his past two appearances in Austria.

Of course, Leclerc remains the superior driver in qualifying, seizing the pole six times so far this season. However, his past middling results at Red Bull Ring, capped by last year’s eighth-place finish, combined with his continued underperformance this season dramatically diminish his value as a second favorite.

Sprint Qualifying Format Favors Verstappen

For the second time this season, the starting grid for Sunday’s race will be determined by a qualifying sprint. That is good news for Max Verstappen, who is perched as a -110 favorite in the Austrian Grand Prix odds.

Verstappen has also been a dominant force at this event, which he has won three times over the past four years. Barring any unforeseen circumstances that would force the defending F1 champion out of the race, it is tough to overlook the value that Verstappen offers as both the race favorite and +120 chalk to win qualifying.

Hamilton Flipping the Script

Technical upgrades have paid dividends for Lewis Hamilton, who arrives in Austria sporting +1400 odds after tallying his second straight third-place finish. It has been a tough season for the Mercedes superstar, who failed to reach the podium in seven straight races after opening the season with a P3 performance in Bahrain.

— ESPN F1 (@ESPNF1) July 7, 2022

Hamilton has posted top five performances at the Austrian Grand Prix on seven previous occasions, but has failed to claim pole position since 2016. Indeed, Hamilton’s race fortunes will likely hinge on a strong qualifying performance, but he remains an intriguing +180 to reach the podium at this race for the fourth time in his career.

Austrian Grand Prix Picks

While Ferrari captured the spotlight in Britain, it also proved to be a breakthrough race for the Haas, which claimed its first double points finish of the season. Mick Schumacher earned his first career F1 points with an eighth-place performance while teammate Kevin Magnussen finished 10th.

— The Checkered Flag (@TheCheckerFlag) July 7, 2022

It is tough to overlook the steady progress Schumacher has made this season. The son of the legendary Michael Schumacher has demonstrated greater confidence, and has even successfully engaged in some head-to-head racing with Magnussen. Accordingly, he is worthy of a value bet to finish top ten again this weekend.

The Picks: Max Verstappen win qualifying (+120); Carlos Sainz Jr. podium finish (-105); Mick Schumacher points finish (+300)
