Reasons Why Max Verstappen Is a Huge Favorite to Win the 2024 Miami GP

The two-time Miami GP-winner Max Verstappen is the best driver in the world right now. The evidence isn’t just that he’s the defending champion, but also the fact that he’s the one who won four of the five races driven in 2024.

The only race he didn’t win was the Australian Grand Prix, in which he had the pole position, but had to withdraw due to car failure. Despite the mishap, his RB20 is still considered the best car in the competition.

The car is fast and aggressive, which suits Verstappen’s driving style perfectly. This is why bookies think he’s gonna dominate the race in Florida. In fact, with the odds of -700, Verstappen seems almost certain to win the May 5 race.

Drivers Who Can Ruin Verstappen’s Plans at Miami GP

If Verstappen doesn’t win the race in Florida, who will do it? Judging by the odds, the most likely candidate is Verstappen’s teammate from Red Bull Racing, Sergio Perez. This is no surprise given that he’s a fantastic driver who’s driving pretty much the same car as Verstappen.

Plus, if something goes astray for Verstappen on May 5, their team will switch their focus to Perez, doing all they can to help him win the No. 1 spot on the podium.

Bookies also think that Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc could get on the podium. No surprise there as he’s been pretty impressive this season, recording the fastest lap in two races so far. He hasn’t won a race, though, but his teammate Carlos Sainz Jr. has. He did it in Australia when Verstappen’s car broke. Can he do it again, this time in Florida?

2024 Miami Grand Prix Prediction

We have no doubt that Max Verstappen is going to win this race. Actually, if he failed to do so, it would be one of the biggest upsets in motorsports in 2024. Priced at -700, however, he might not be a too attractive betting option.

This is why you might wanna consider betting on other Formula One markets, including the podium finish. So, who, apart from Verstappen, is going to end up in the Top 3?

We think it’s very likely that his teammate Sergio Perez will do it. This guy ended up on the podium in four of this year’s five races, and we have no doubt he’s gonna get there again on May 5.

Picks: Max Verstappen to win; Sergio Perez podium finish
