Previous Race

Rain all night on Saturday and all day on Sunday forced the Belgian Grand Prix to finish without a race at all. Max Verstappen managed to claim pole position while George Russell finished second in the Williams and Lewis Hamilton third in the Mercedes.

As long as drivers did not crash behind the safety car, that was how the Belgian Grand Prix would finish. And that’s exactly what all 20 professional drivers did on Sunday in the two laps behind the safety car to pick up half points because 75 percent of the race was not completed. Red Bull and Verstappen closed the gap on Mercedes and Hamilton in the respective standings.

“It was very important to get that pole position but of course it’s a big shame to not do proper laps, but the conditions were very tricky out there,” Verstappen said. “I think the conditions were decent, but the visibility was very low, so I think if we would have started at 3 o’clock, we had a better chance. But nevertheless, after that it just stayed really wet and it kept raining. Of course, it’s a win but it’s not how you want to win.”

Hamilton Or Verstappen?

Verstappen won yet another race on Sunday to open another tripleheader in the F1 calendar. Now, he moves to his home race in the Netherlands with some form and momentum after a subpar three-race stint. In terms of skill, he is one of the best in this set of drivers because of his pure attacking instinct.

This is a track where overtaking will not be impossible, like it seems in Monaco. That will suit his style. Verstappen has been given F1 odds of +110, which is fair and just considering he has already won so many races this season.

Hamilton was almost inconspicuous in Belgium even though he managed to claim a podium position. His Mercedes was steady without being too flashy, which is why he finished in third behind Verstappen and Russell. This track in the Netherlands might not suit him as much as a track like Barcelona because of the longer straights, where Red Bull should be too strong.

“Of course, as we’ve got through the season, they’ve got stronger and stronger and it’s been harder for us as we’ve gone on, we’ve had a bit of a difficult patch but we got back to operating how we have done in the past,” Hamilton said. “The first half was definitely one of the toughest and I expect it’s going to be pretty much the same in the second half, if not more difficult.”

Left-Field Dutch Grand Prix Odds Betting Predictions

If there was rain predicted, like in Belgium or even Hungary, you might see more outside contenders being given a chance. But on a dry F1 day in 2021, you would not expect to see too many choices in betting slips apart from Verstappen and Hamilton.

Still, Sergio Perez (+1400) will be a left-field choice. He crashed on the way to the grid in Belgium with no visibility, but his mechanics were able to assemble his car back together in time for the two-lap restart. His confidence might be low, as a result. But he has already won in Baku so do not discount him just yet, particularly if there is some damage to the Red Bull of his colleague.

Valtteri Bottas has the same F1 odds as Perez. I’d say that is a bit unfair on some other drivers because Bottas has not done enough to suggest he could be a contender for winning the race. Of course, finishing on the podium is a different situation altogether, and he could easily finish in the top three. Based on the evidence we’ve seen so far, I would certainly be staying away from Bottas, at least for the moment.

Charles Leclerc (+3300) has been a solid driver from the outset. He has won pole on numerous occasions already, and could be a value choice at these Dutch Grand Prix odds.

History Of The Dutch Grand Prix

Zandvoort was first opened in 1948, with its original circuit comprising a blend of permanent as well as street track. Sammy Davis, the winner of the 1927 Le Mans, was also a consultant on the original layout. F1 came to this track four years later, in 1952. Alberto Ascari won that race in the Ferrari.

Race Technicals

There will be a total race distance of 306.65 kilometers at Zandvoort, split into 72 laps of racing. Each lap will be 4.25 kilometers long, with two DRS detection zones. The first will be on the curve between laps 9 and 10 while the second will be between laps 12 and 13.

There is one main straight along the start of the race, which will aid overtaking if drivers can find the slipstream they need to make moves. Due to its curvy nature, this is a track that will be conducive for overtaking.

Weather Conditions

We will finally have some racing this weekend with not much rain expected on Sunday. In fact, we could even see some sun with a partly cloudy day expected on race day. Qualifying will be important again but for very different reasons.

F1 Dutch Grand Prix Odds Betting Strategy

This is Verstappen’s home race. He has already won each of three races in a three-race header in the calendar. He has picked up some form, confidence and momentum after a few crashes in the last few races, including Silverstone, Hungary and Belgium, in free practice.

Verstappen will have to stave off one of the best drivers in the world in Hamilton, but I’d back him to be able to do that in Zandvoort.

Odds as of September 1 at BetOnline

This is a technical market although it might simply look like luck. Here are the factors you might want to consider.

Firstly, Verstappen’s Red Bull is too strong along the straights. So, if he finishes at pole position on Saturday, it is likely that will be the final position of the grid winner. However, he can easily come back into the race from second, third or even the rest of the top 10.

Similarly, you might also want to consider if a driver other than Verstappen might finish at pole position. Hamilton is an obvious candidate but again, he will have to be stellar on Saturday to do that. While Hamilton will be hard to beat, I would back Verstappen to finish at pole and claim this market as well.

The F1 calendar quickly moves to Italy in the subsequent week. Odds Shark will return next week to update you with the new F1 odds and betting opportunities from the sport.
