Belgian Grand Prix Tips

Bet on Formula 1

Red Bull's Max Verstappen is looking to make it eight wins on the bounce when he heads to this weekend's Belgian Grand Prix.

The title might already be sealed for Verstappen, who sits 110 points clear of teammate Sergio Perez, but don't expect him to take his foot off the gas at Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps.

Verstappen's triumph in Hungary last weekend means he is just two shy of Sebastian Vettel's record of nine consecutive race wins in F1.

Tip 1 - Double podium finish - Red Bull

Red Bull are coasting to a second successive Constructors' Championship, sitting 229 points clear of Mercedes after winning all 11 races this campaign.

Max Verstappen is also closing in on a third successive Drivers' Championship with nine race wins under his belt this term, including each of the last seven.

There's little value in backing the Dutchman to make it eight on the bounce but it could be worth getting behind both Red Bull cars to be on the podium.

Sergio Perez's form had tailed off a little after winning two of the opening four races but he will be full of confidence after a strong drive to finish third in Hungary last weekend.

The Mexican started ninth on the grid but weaved his way through traffic to get on the podium in Budapest.

Red Bull's straight line speed has put them in such a strong position and should be well suited to the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps.

Tip 2 - Podium finish - Lando Norris

Lando Norris picked up just one podium finish in 2022 but he already has two under his belt this term and he's claimed them in each of his last two outings.

The McLaren star finished second at the British Grand Prix and followed up with second place in Hungary last time out.

Prior to the British GP on 9th July, Norris had finished in the top six just twice and inside the top-10 on only four occasions, however, McLaren's upgrades are clearly having an impact and he looks set to challenge for another podium finish in Belgium.

Tip 3 - Top-six finish - Fernando Alonso

Fernando Alonso is proving that age is just a number as the 41-year-old is enjoying a fine campaign for Aston Martin.

The Spaniard isn't in the mix for the title but he is looking to claim his highest finish in the Drivers' Championship since 2013 when he finished second.

His fine start to 2023, which saw him seal three successive third place finishes, has him sitting third in the standings and six points clear of Lewis Hamilton in four.

Alonso has been on the podium six times this term - he didn't manage a top-three finish once in 2022 - and he is no stranger to challenging high up the field in Belgium.

He finished fifth at Spa when driving for Alpine last season and boasts six top-six finishes at the Belgian GP.
