Max Verstappen has been tipped at 1/2 to claim his third consecutive title next month at the Qatar Grand Prix, with OLBG believing he has a 66.7% chance of sealing the title in the Middle East.
Verstappen heads to the Singapore Grand Prix this weekend unable to seal the championship just yet, despite the fact he leads Sergio Perez by 145 points.
The Dutchman would require at 175-point lead at the end of the Singapore GP to claim the title at the Marina Bay Circuit; however, the biggest lead he can possibly boast come the end of this weekend is 171.
For that to happen, the Red Bull driver would need to win the race and claim the fastest lap, and for Perez to finish outside the top-10.
Verstappen is, unsurprisingly, the hot favourite to win in Singapore on Sunday, in what is the most physically demanding race on the calendar due to the heat and humidity.
The Dutchman finished seventh in Singapore last season following an eventful race, which saw him lock-up at Turn 7, causing him to go completely off the track.
It hasn’t been the two-time World Champion’s best venue in the past, with him having never won there.
His current run of form will give him the confidence to claim his first Singapore win though, considering that he’s won the last 10 races.
Verstappen eclipsed Sebastian Vettel’s record of nine consecutive wins recently at the Italian Grand Prix, where he had to fight his way past Carlos Sainz for victory.
His win at Monza marked his 12th overall of the season, with him closing in on his 2022 record for most wins in a season (15).
Given his dominance, OLBG have remarkably put Verstappen at 2/1 to win the eight remaining races, something which would take him to 20 for the season.
The site are seemingly convinced that he’ll have to wait until Qatar for the title, with him only having a 28.6% chance to claim the crown at the Japanese Grand Prix next weekend.
OLBG have priced Verstappen at 5/2 to win the title at Suzuka, whilst he’s been put at a staggering 100/1 to somehow not win the crown this season.
