F1 British GP Top Betting Predictions

Max Verstappen, as expected, dominated the early British GP proceedings. The Dutchman led the two free practice sessions on Friday, leading teammate Sergio Perez in FP1 and last year’s British GP winner Carlos Sainz in FP2. But it was Alexander Albon and Williams who were the highlight of the day: the Thai driver finished third in both FP sessions, while teammate Logan Sargeant made it an impressive double top 5 for the Grove-based squad in FP2. Will the British team put on a show in its home race?

Red Bull Double Podium Finish

Perez has seemingly put his troubles to rest, ending a four-race podium-less streak in Austria. The Mexican was quick on Friday, finishing second and fourth overall. Red Bull’s pace in the long runs is, once again, its biggest asset.

While a podium for Verstappen has usually been a lock, Perez is the wild card. But after finally taking a huge weight out of his shoulders, the current championship runner-up is seemingly back on the right track. A double podium at Silverstone, which is a very good track for the RB19, is a very good bet, especially considering the odds on offer.

Alexander Albon Top 6 Finish

Let’s hop in on Williams’ hype train. Albon’s pace on Friday was genuinely encouraging. While expecting a podium finish is unrealistic, the Thai driver showed enough to warrant some thought on a potential top 6 finish in the GP.

Williams’ pace on soft tyres and in qualifying trim looks like the real deal, and Albon will be in the mix for a potential top 5 spot on the grid. Given the FW45’s straight line speed, the team will also have a chance to fight for a top 6 on Sunday. Albon was competitive in the long runs on Friday, matching the pace of the much quicker Aston Martins. The odds are a quite long on this one, but the potential payout could be worth the risk.

F1 British GP Weather Condition

Friday was an unusually hot day, and temperatures are expected to drop on Saturday and Sunday. Qualifying could be held on a damp track, while the race will likely be held in the dry. There is a small chance of rain on Sunday, however. As is usually the case in Silverstone, it will be worth keeping an eye on the weather report all weekend.
