Bahrain Grand Prix Race– Max Verstappen 33/100

Max can make history this season by becoming one of 3 drivers to have one 4 World Championships putting him alongside Sebastian Vettel and Alain Prost. The journey to what will be his fourth title kicks off in Bahrain. In last year’s qualifiers he finished first securing pole position in Bahrain and subsequently his first race of the season.   

Bahrain Grand Prix Race – Lewis Hamilton 35/2

The 7-time World Champion has been starving for the World Championship for 3 seasons in a row. After news emerged that he would be leaving his beloved Mercedes after this season to join Ferrari, many of his fans have echoed the sentiment that this change may spark a much-needed return to winning ways for the English driver. Now a future Ferrari driver, he starts his last season with the silver arrow in Bahrain. In last season’s qualifiers he started 11th on the Grid behind Pierre Gasly and Sergio Perez in 9th. He would finish that race in 9th position and that would send Mercedes fans into a frenzy as his teammate George Russel finished in third, 5 positions ahead of Lewis. This race will set the tone for Lewis and Mercedes' expectations for this season. A win in qualifying will give fans of both the team, and the driver high hopes for 2024. 

Bahrain Grand Prix Race – Fernando Alonso 55/2

The most experienced driver on the grid, had an impressive season last year finishing fourth overall behind Lewis Hamilton, Sergio Perez, and Champion Max Verstappen. The 42-year-old is a man reborn at Aston Martin, he registered his first top 5 finish last season, the highest since he won a bronze medal in 2013. It took a decade for him to recover his podium form, but it remains to be seen whether he will be able to finish higher than fourth this season. The odds on him winning the season's opening race are 55/2.  

Bahrain Grand Prix Race – Top 3 Sergio Perez 3/4

Max Verstappen’s teammate, and a driver who has been solid for the Red Bull team over the seasons. He collected a bronze medal in 2022, and a silver in 2023. He had 2 wins last season with a win in Saudi Arabia, and Azerbaijan. Regardless of how the race plays out he is a driver you expect to see in the top three in every race.  

 

Bahrain Grand Prix Race – Red Bull Racing 1/4

With Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez as their drivers, Red Bull Racing were able to dominate the entire 2023 season. They finished the season with 21 Wins, 14 Pole Positions, and 30 Podiums. To put that into perspective, the only other team on the grid to have registered a win in the 2023 season is Ferrari when Carlos Sainz finished first in Singapore. Regardless of who is on the Grid this season, Red Bull Racing are a world ahead of the grid and they will be expected to win the first race of the season.  

Bahrain Grand Prix Race – Ferrari 6/1 

Ferrari have a rich history in Formula One. In Bahrain last year they started off on the back foot after only one of their cars crossed the finish line. They have come a long way since they finished 6th in the Constructors Championship in 2020. They collected Bronze last season overall and that is a place lower than the silver they collected in 2022. It has been 15 years since they last collected gold in the Constructor’s Championship. With the addition of Lewis Hamilton to their team the objective is clear. Bringing back the glory days, however, Lewis will only be in Ferrari’s colours next season.
