Carlos Sainz was able to turn his first career pole into his first career Formula One victory on Sunday in the British Grand Prix. Silverstone was an action-packed race with a scary crash in the first lap, many lead changes throughout the race and four teams fighting until the end for that first and second spot. Sainz was able to add 25 points to his season total and jump Mercedes George Russell to fourth place in the 2022 driver standings. Sainz is the fourth favorite to win the 2022 Driver Championship at Draftkings Sportsbook with +2800 odds going into the 11th race of the season.
Max Verstappen is coming off a bad weekend finishing seventh at Silverstone, but what an impressive seventh place for the current leader and favorite to win the 2022 Drivers Championship. Verstappen looked to be on the way to his seventh victory in ten races before a piece of debris damaged his car early in the race. Luckily, he was still able to finish with points and remains the favorite to win it all this year.
Verstappen currently has 181 points and is -500 to win the Drivers’ Championship. His teammate Sergio Perez is in second with 147 points and is +3500 to win it all after a very impressive race on Sunday — fighting back from 17th to second place after he had damage to his car early in the race.
Charles Leclerc, who has won two races this season and finished fourth at Silverstone, is the second favorite to win it all with +500 odds. Lewis Hamilton currently is +2200 to take home another championship this season.
