Formula 1: Hungarian Grand Prix 2021 Betting Tips & Predictions (August 1)

F1 Hungarian Grand Prix 2021 Betting Preview

In a few days, the Hungaroring will again serve as the venue for another exciting race in Budapest, Hungary. Since this race fully became an official part of the Formula 1 calendar in 1986, it has become a permanent feature ever since.

Admittedly, the race has received some criticism due to the rather complex look of the track compared to others. Despite that, it has not stopped us from getting proper enjoyable action over the years. Another exciting edition is upon us, and we bring you the latest information about the competition, including some of the latest predictions and odds from auto racing bookies.

F1 Hungarian Grand Prix Odds

Betting on auto racing has particularly picked up over the past few years, with the sport widely gaining more coverage globally. There is still time for a lot to change, but the current 2021 Hungarian Grand Prix odds make Max Verstappen the favourite to win.

The above comes as a surprise, given the dominance of Lewis Hamilton in this competition over the past 3 years. The Englishman is the most successful driver in the competition’s history, and the stats fully back that claim. A total of 8 wins means he has double that of Michael Schumacher, the second most successful driver in the competition with 4 wins.

Sebastian Vettel, Jenson Button, and Mika Häkkinen have won the competition twice, among other notable names. In contrast, the Brazilian duo of Ayrton Senna and Nelson Piquet have 5 wins. Nelson Piquet is a popular past-winner, having won the first 2 editions of the competition in 1986 and 1987.

Key Stats to Note Ahead of the Hungarian Grand Prix 2021

  • Lewis Hamilton has won the past 3 editions of the competition (2018, 2019, and 2020)
  • Mclaren is the most successful constructor in the competition, boasting 11 wins. The duo of Ferrari and Williams both occupy the joint-second place, with 7 wins apiece.
  • Only individuals from England, Australia, and Germany, have won the last 12 editions of this competition.

Betting Tips and Picks to Win the Race

The stats may point in one direction, but current form and other factors mean it is somewhat difficult to predict an outright winner. From the qualifying to the outright winner, here are some of the top favourites that could likely win the competition.

Max Verstappen

After slightly missing out on Lewis Hamilton last year, he will come into this race fully motivated to claim the first F1 Championship win in his career. He currently leads the way in the official F1 standings, having won 5 competitions already this year, with a tally of 182 points to his name. Based on his current form, he is the top choice, and it’s no surprise popular bookmaker William Hill has odds of 1/4 for him to win.

Lewis Hamilton

As already mentioned, Hamilton needs no introduction in this competition. His recent triumph in 2020 saw him win from the pole position ahead of Verstappen and his teammate in Valtteri Bottas. Hamilton’s record here means he would always be a value bet to win.

He is looking to win at this venue for a record-breaking 6th time this year, and that should see him even further motivated to keep his crown. In their Formula 1 Hungarian Grand Prix 2021 odds section, William Hill has a value bet of 11/4 for him to win.

Sebastian Vettel

Given his history in the competition, he will also be a top shout to win this one. He’ll be aiming to get back to winning ways after missing out once again last year. Aside from Lewis Hamilton, he is the previous person to win this one, and he also features strongly in many predictions. His current odds to win this one stand at 1500/1.

Final Thoughts

For all of Lewis Hamilton’s dominance, this particular edition remains a bit difficult to predict an actual winner as many drivers are in top form ahead of the competition. Regardless, it’ll be the brit’s competition to lose, and all eyes will be on him again. Will Hamilton make it 4 in a row, or will a new winner emerge? Only time will tell how it unfolds in Budapest.
