Formula 1 Dutch Grand Prix of 2023 race is examined by SportsLine’s model for Max Verstappen, Lewis Hamilton, and the rest of the competition.
Formula 1 When the season returns on Sunday with the Dutch Grand Prix, Max Verstappen will continue to work toward a third straight Formula 1 championship. In front of his native nation, Verstappen has won eight straight races and can match Sebastian Vettel’s record of nine straight victories on Sunday. Red Bull Racing can also extend their record winning streak to 14. The 25-year-old holds a 125-point advantage over teammate Sergio Perez in the Formula One standings after winning the Dutch Grand Prix each of the previous two seasons on his path to a championship.
In the 2023 Dutch Grand Prix odds, Verstappen is the -400 favorite (place $400 to win $100), followed by Perez at +900. The top three drivers, Charles Leclerc of Ferrari (+2000), Lando Norris of McLaren (+2000), and Lewis Hamilton of Mercedes (+1400), will be hopeful that their teams have found some additional speed to contend with Red Bull over the break. At 9:00 ET, the green flag will be raised. Check out the most recent 2023 Dutch GP predictions and betting tips from SportsLine’s time-tested projection model before examining the 2023 Dutch Grand Prix starting grid and making any Formula 1 predictions.
The proprietary Formula 1 prediction model was created by daily fantasy expert and SportsLine predictive data engineer Mike McClure. It simulates each race 10,000 times while taking into account recent outcomes and track history. Since the 2021 season, it has a solid track record of performance in motorsports, having predicted nine NASCAR victories correctly, and its projected leaderboards have predicted winners in a variety of racing formats.
Since 2021, the model has had a blazing track record of correctly predicting Formula 1 race outcomes. In 2022, it correctly predicted both of Charles Leclerc’s victories, and at the Mexican Grand Prix in 2021, it heavily backed Verstappen as its top option. The outcome: Verstappen crushed the field and sprinted to an unexpected victory.
Verstappen won again in Belgium, the Netherlands, Japan, the US, Mexico, and Abu Dhabi after the model correctly predicted his victory at the Rolex Emilia Romagna GP in April. Verstappen’s nine victories so far in the 2023 season have all been secured by it. Anyone who followed the model’s recommendations on those plays has profited greatly.
The model has now focused on the 2023 Formula 1 Dutch Grand Prix and has recently made its much anticipated predictions for the leaderboard public. Visit SportsLine right away to view the entire 2023 Dutch Grand Prix standings forecast.
Top 2023 Formula 1 Dutch GP predictions
One major surprise: despite being tied with Leclerc as the fourth favorite, the model is downgrading Norris. With second-place finishes in the British Grand Prix and the Hungarian Grand Prix last month, Norris resurrected his season, but aside of those two fantastic rides, the 23-year-old Englishman’s campaign has been pretty dismal.
Norris placed 17th in Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Miami, Spain, and Canada while also coming in last without earning any points. In the last race before the break in Belgium, he disappointed everyone by coming in eighth. He also finished ninth in Azerbaijan and Monaco. While McLaren will score points every week, Norris has also finished seventh and tenth in two starts at the Dutch Grand Prix. Those performances don’t warrant being the fourth favorite, and the model predicts he will once more finish outside the top five.
