F1 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix betting picks

The 2023 Formula 1 season concludes this weekend as we head to the UAE’s Yas Marina Circuit for the 2023 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Last weekend in Las Vegas, it was Red Bull driver Max Verstappen once again on top of the podium as he secured his 18th win of the season despite suffering damage and collecting a penalty. In a thrilling final-lap battle, Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc overtook Red Bull’s Sergio Perez for second place, while Esteban Ocon and Lance Stroll were both very impressive in gaining over 10 places each to finish fourth and fifth, respectively.

Abu Dhabi has been the season finale every season since its addition to the calendar 15 years ago. As a day-night race, the sun has been known to be a challenge for drivers. The pressure is off Red Bull this weekend after Perez secured second place in the drivers’ championship, while they have already secured the constructors’ championship.

The battle for second place is red hot, however, as Ferrari sit just four points behind Mercedes. Fourth place is also up for grabs, with McLaren holding just an 11-point advantage over Aston Martin.

There is also a four-way battle for fourth place in the drivers’ championship. Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz and Aston Martin’s Fernando Alonso sit level on 200 points, while McLaren’s Lando Norris (195) and Leclerc (188) are not far behind.

Having won the last three editions of the race, Verstappen should be heavily favoured once again, but look for Mercedes and Ferrari to be right up for the fight. Norris should also be in the mix for a podium after crashing out of last weekend’s race.
