5 F1 Request A Bets to Look Out for in this Weekend’s Australian GP

Ferrari F1 Team, Sainz

Liam Bewsher

Race Forecast: 1st. Verstappen 2nd. Leclerc - 3/1

Last time out in the Saudi Arabia GP, Max Verstappen managed to claw back some points on Charles Leclerc, who looks likely to be his title rival this season.

The Red Bull had a significantly higher amount of straight-line speed at Jeddah than the Ferrari due to reducing their wing, whilst the Prancing Horse were quicker in the first sector, having built a superb aero package for this season’s car.

Since the last race at Albert Park, Melbourne, Australia back in 2019, there have been modifications made to the circuit, such as the removal of the chicane at Turns nine and 10, meaning that the middle sector is much more high pace. There are also now four DRS zones, with two activation points.

This should play into the hands of the Red Bulls if they can balance their car as well as they did in Saudi Arabia. Having battled it out for the win in the first two races of the season prior to Verstappen’s DNF at Bahrain, it would not be a surprise to see another battle of the ages between these two drivers.

RACE FORECAST: 1ST. VERSTAPPEN 2ND. LECLERC @ 3/1

Leclerc & Verstappen Podium, Perez Top 6, Bottas & Gasly Points - 5/1

As mentioned above, Leclerc and Verstappen are expected to be in battle once again for the victory when the sport travels to Melbourne.

Sergio Perez will be looking to better his two fourth-place finishes this weekend, as the Mexican was desperately unlucky at Jeddah last time out, having pitted one lap before the safety car, effectively relegating him from race leader to fourth. This was disappointing for the former Racing Point driver as he had scored his first-ever pole position.

Alfa Romeo’s Valtteri Bottas was forced to retire his car at Jeddah having been firmly inside the points. The Finnish driver is currently ninth in the standings following his sixth-place finish at Bahrain and will be expected to maximise his Ferrari powertrain at another high paced circuit.

Pierre Gasly managed to bounce back from his DNF at Bahrain to finish eighth at Jeddah for Alphatauri. The Frenchman will be hoping for back to back points finishes having shown promise in his first two races.

LECLERC & VERSTAPPEN PODIUM, PEREZ TOP 6, BOTTAS & GASLY POINTS @ 5/1

Leclerc, Sainz & Verstappen Podium, Hamilton Top 6, Magnussen Points - 11/2

Lewis Hamilton and Kevin Magnussen are the main talking points of this Request A Bet.

Seven-time world champion, Hamilton, could only manage a 10th place finish in Jeddah last time out, having been incredibly unlucky not to be able to pit under the safety car whilst others did, due to a series of slow-moving and parked cars at the pit entry meaning that the pit lane was closed.

Undoubtedly, Hamilton would have finished sixth in Saudi Arabia, on top of the unlikely podium he managed in Bahrain. At present, the Brit is fifth in the Driver’s Championship.

Magnussen has been arguably the story of the season so far with a reinvigorated Haas F1 Team, following an upturn in fortunes due to building a solid car for the new regulations. The 29-year-old has finished fifth and ninth in his first two races, and with a Ferrari powertrain’s pace, will be looking to add to this with another points haul in Melbourne.

LECLERC, SAINZ & VERSTAPPEN PODIUM, HAMILTON TOP 6, MAGNUSSEN POINTS @ 11/2

Sainz Podium, Alonso, Bottas, Gasly, Magnussen & Schumacher Points - 22/1

Carlos Sainz has managed a podium finish in each of his two races this season, finishing second in Bahrain, as well as third in Saudi Arabia. The Spaniard will be hoping to continue his 100% record of doing this so far this season.

Two-time world champion Fernando Alonso was forced to retire his Alpine from a promising position last time out. The 40-year-old Spaniard will be looking to add to the ninth-place finish he managed in Bahrain.

As mentioned above, both Bottas and Magnussen are having impressive seasons so far, with both of these drivers finishing inside the top six at Bahrain, as well as showing some superb pace at Jeddah.

Gasly will be keen to add to the four points he scored following his DNF in Bahrain.

Mick Schumacher is still yet to score his first points in F1, although the son of seven-time world champion, Michael, has only had a competitive car since the start of this season. The 23-year-old managed to finish 11th in Bahrain and crashed his car heavily in qualifying at Jeddah, meaning that he was unable to participate in the race having initially shown good pace.

SAINZ PODIUM, ALONSO, BOTTAS, GASLY, MAGNUSSEN & SCHUMACHER POINTS @ 22/1

Leclerc & Verstappen Podium, Hamilton & Bottas Top 6, Gasly & Magnussen Points - 22/1

The final Request A Bet here involves much of what has already been discussed in this article, with Leclerc and Verstappen finishing on the podium, which is expected to happen as the Dutchman tries to eat into the Monegasque driver’s 20 points advantage following his DNF in Bahrain in the first race of the season.

Hamilton will be expecting to finish in the top six, whilst Bottas will likely be aiming for it if there are any shock results in qualifying or the race itself, which as proven this season, there has been in both GPs.

Meanwhile, Gasly and Magnussen have both shown good pace this season with their Red Bull and Ferrari powertrains, meaning that they will both be expecting to compete for points finishes.
