Formula 1 Hungarian Grand Prix: Betting Odds, Stats, and Trends

Be sure to read below to see the best 2022 Aramco Hungarian Grand Prix Race Betting Picks. The F1 odds currently favor Charles Leclerc at +135, with Max Verstappen just behind at +140. The Hungarian Grand Prix will take place on July 31st at the Hungaroring in Budapest.

Hungarian Iconic Circuit

The Hungaroring is one of the most iconic circuits in all of Formula 1. In 1986 it became the first circuit to host a race behind the Iron Curtain of the Soviet Union.

Lewis Hamilton has won at this circuit a record eight times and will be pushing for a win in his upgraded Mercedes. The Championship standings are currently led by Max Verstappen who has 233 points.

In second, Charles Leclerc has 170 points, closely followed by Sergio Perez with 163 points. Carlos Sainz, George Russell, and Lewis Hamilton follow with 144, 143, and 127 points, respectively.

Hungarian Grand Prix Stats and Racing Trends

Charles Leclerc and Max Verstappen have been going at it head-to-head all season. Verstappen is way ahead in the points right now, but with 10 races left in the season, nothing is guaranteed. Let’s take a look at how these two incredible drivers have fared so far this season.

Max Verstappen Stats

Max is currently having an incredible year. With only two DNF’s all season so far, the Red Bull car is working very well and Verstappen has won seven races with nine podiums and only one finish outside the top three. Verstappen also has claimed three fastest lap awards this year so far.

Verstappen is sitting 63 points ahead of title rival Charles Leclerc and is looking to extend his lead even further this weekend.

The Dutch driver has never won an F1 race at the Hungaroring, although the F1 odds have him as a slight underdog at +140.

Verstappen has not been a betting underdog at the start of most races, so be sure to bet before Saturday qualifying if you want a better line.

Charles Leclerc Stats

Charles Leclerc, despite being higher up in the championship standings than ever before in his career, is probably disappointed with how his season is going.

He sits in second place by 63 points due to multiple DNF’s this season, most caused by issues with his Ferrari.

Consistency has been the downfall of the Ferrari’s this season as the team has seven DNF’s, almost all of them being engine failures or malfunctions.

Leclerc’s Performance Recap

Regardless, Leclerc has had a very good season. The Monegasque driver has three fastest laps, eight top 5 finishes, and has won three races this year.

Were it not for multiple engine failures there is a good chance Leclerc would be sitting much closer behind Max Verstappen in the standings.

Leclerc only has one win since May and needs to win this weekend if he has any shot at the Championship.

Verstappen vs Leclerc Head-to-Head Racing Trends

  • Leclerc has won three races all year, but only one race since mid-April. Verstappen has won seven races this season, and six of them have been since mid-April. Verstappen is hot, Leclerc is not.
  • Verstappen has not had a DNF in the last nine races. Leclerc has had three DNF’s since the last seven races. Ferrari’s engine woes will end up costing them this season’s championship.
  • Head-to-Head, in races the BOTH drivers have finished this year, Max Verstappen is 4-2. Leclerc’s only head-to-head victories were in Austria (first, second) and Great Britain (fourth, seventh)
  • Verstappen’s four head-to-head wins were in Saudi Arabia (first, second), Emilia Romagna (first, sixth), Miami (first, second), and Canada (first, fifth).

Hungarian Grand Prix Race Betting Predictions and Picks

My 2022 Aramco Hungarian Grand Prix Race Betting Picks for this race are Max Verstappen to win (+140) and Lewis Hamilton to Podium (+110).

Verstappen and Lewis finished one-two in France for the first time all season, and the Hungaroring is one of Lewis best tracks (he has an F1 record eight victories there).

I fully expect Verstappen to win the race, and I believe Lewis can podium with or without the help of Ferrari engine issues.

Who to Bet On?

Verstappen is looking to cement his championship lead this weekend and I fully expect him to do it. He’s been the most consistent driver this year, he’s won the most races by a large margin, and has been just outright better than Leclerc in the last seven races. F1 betting picks for this race is Max Verstappen +140.

Formula 1 Pick: Max Verstappen (+140)
