2022 Formula 1 Italian Grand Prix Picks

  • Max Verstappen is a -240 favorite to win the Italian Grand Prix for the first time in his career
  • Seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton (+1000) is still looking for his first victory of 2022
  • The 53-lap, 3.6-mile Autodromo Nazionale Monza circuit hosts Round 16 of the Formula 1 season on Sept. 11

Max Verstappen is not only the pick to win his second-consecutive Drivers World Championship, he’s a threat to topple the all-time single-season record with 13 victories. After triumphing in last weekend’s Dutch Grand Prix, the Red Bull driver has captured four checkered flags in a row, building up a ridiculous 109-point lead in the F1 standings.

Before we check the latest odds for the Italian Grand Prix in Monza, here’s where you can find the top betting sites for Formula 1 in 2022.

Verstappen looks for 1st win in Italy

Max Verstappen (-240) cruised to victory at his home track in Zandvoort on Sunday, bringing 100,000 Dutch fans to their feet with his career-high fourth-straight win. The 24-year-old has claimed 10 of 15 events this year. If he captures four of the season’s final seven races, he will surpass both Michael Schumacher (2004) and Sebastian Vettel (2013) for the most wins in a single season.

The Italian Grand Prix provides a potential road block to the F1 record. Verstappen has never placed higher than fifth at Monza, and in 2021, his car ended up on top of Lewis Hamilton’s Mercedes after a collision.

Autodromo Nazionale Monza

One of the most storied tracks in Formula 1, Autodromo Nazionale Monza hosted the first Italian Grand Prix in 1922. The circuit has hosted a race every year but one since 1950, when it was one of the original tracks on the F1 calendar.

With cars going full throttle for 80% of the 3.6-mile lap, Monza is characterized by speed, speed and more speed. Juan Pablo Montoya actually holds the all-time record for F1’s fastest lap, going 161.9 miles-per-hour during a practice for the 2004 Grand Prix.

Ferrari out of the hunt

It was a case of good news, bad news for Charles Leclerc (+600) at Sunday’s Dutch Grand Prix. He finished third, but it was only his second podium in 10 events and his first top-five finish in three races. And, while the effort moved the Monegasque back into a tie for second in the drivers’ standings with Sergio Perez (+1200), he’s still 109 points behind Verstappen.

As you would expect, Ferrari’s 20 wins at the Italian Grand Prix is the most ever, doubling McLaren (11) and Mercedes (9). Leclerc also won the Italian GP in 2019.

Who is Mercedes’ No. 1 driver?

Given the teams’ current trajectories, Mercedes will likely overtake Ferrari in the constructors’ championship standings. The Silver Arrows are just 30 points back of the Scuderia after an impressive second-place showing by George Hamilton (+1200) at Zandvoort. The Brit has been a model of consistency with 14 top-five finishes in 15 Grand Prix’s this season.

Lewis Hamilton (+1000) also placed fourth in the Netherlands after being hung out to dry by his team with the wrong choice of tires. “I can’t believe you guys —-ing —-ed me,” said the seven-time world champion. Hamilton will have another chance to pick up his first victory of the year in Monza, where he has won five times before.

Best Bet

Max Verstappen (-240) remains the safest bet in sports, but his odds aren’t too enticing at the moment. Let’s go with Leclerc at +600 and pray that Ferrari doesn’t screw things up for a change.
