- Red Bull’s Max Verstappen (-110) is the favorite in Montreal after his commanding win in last Sunday’s Azerbaijan Grand Prix
- Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc (+275) is now trailing both Verstappen and Sergio Perez (+325) in the Formula 1 Drivers’ Standings
- The Canadian Grand Prix returns to Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve on June 19 following a two-year absence
Max Verstappen is atop the 2022 Canadian Grand Prix Betting Odds after winning the 2022 Azerbaijan Grand Prix in comfortable fashion last weekend. Following Charles Leclerc’s retirement in Baku, the Dutchman has built up a 21-point lead in the drivers’ standings over teammate Sergio Perez.
Can Ferrari get back on track in Montreal or is Team Red Bull a lock to capture their first constructors’ championship since 2013? Before we check the odds for this weekend’s Canadian GP in Montreal, here’s where you can find the top betting sites for Formula 1 in 2022.
2022 Canadian Grand Prix
Red Bull pulling away from the pack
Max Verstappen (-110) is the favorite to win the 2022 Canadian Grand Prix. And a second-straight drivers’ championship (-250) seems all but assured through eight rounds. After suffering DNFs in two of the season’s first three events, the 24-year-old has four victories in five races following a 1-2 Red Bull finish with teammate Sergio Perez (+325) in Baku.
Charles Leclerc (+275) has captured pole position in six of the season’s eight GPs. Yet, he only has two wins after retiring with the lead in two of the last three races. Heading into Montreal, it’s hard to trust Ferrari after four of their engines suffered reliability issues at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix.

Montreal’s Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve
Formula 1 is returning to Montreal for the first time in three years. Lewis Hamilton (+4000) has won four of the past five Canadian Grand Prix’s and is tied with Michael Schumacher with seven career victories north of the border. Located on a man-made island, Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve is a 2.71-mile, 70-lap track. The fast, low-downforce circuit necessitates lots of heavy braking into the hairpin corners, but drivers seem to enjoy the quick and flowing nature of the track.
Lewis Hamilton’s painful season
It was initially feared that Lewis Hamilton would miss the Canadian GP with back pain after porpoising issues caused his car to bounce all over the Baku track. However, the seven-time world champion said he “wouldn’t miss it for the world.”
Nevertheless, George Russell (+3300) is the Mercedes man to bet on. The Brit picked up his third podium of the year at the Azerbaijan GP and has not finished lower than fifth place this season.

There are still 14 events left in the 22-round F1 calendar. But, with the way the season is trending for the Scuderia, it wouldn’t be surprising if Russell overtook Leclerc in the drivers standings (only 16 points back). Or for that matter, if Mercedes passed Ferrari in the constructors’ standings (just 38 points back).
With Team Red Bull in total command heading into the Canadian GP, we’ll take the favorite Max Verstappen to claim his sixth checkered flag of the year and first-career victory in Montreal.
