F1 Spanish Grand Prix Odds: Can Charles Leclerc Bounce Back After the Miami Grand Prix?

When: May 22, 9:00 AM EDT

How to Watch: ESPN2

Where: Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, Barcelona, Spain

We head back to Europe for Round 5 of the 2022 Formula One season, as Max Verstappen reigned victorious for the third time this season after a win at the Miami Grand Prix. In what was one of the more exciting weeks of racing we have seen so far this season, by all accounts the event went off without a hitch, as F1 fans flocked to Florida from around the world for an incredible week of action. 

Barcelona now gets its turn to play hose, as the 2022 Spanish Grand Prix will be decided over 66 laps, with practice rounds getting started on May 20th. First held here in 1991, the Spanish GP comes in at a length of 4.675 km around, with a total race distance of 308.424.

It’s worth noting that Verstappen holds the fasted lap recorded here, which he achieved last year at a blistering pace of 1:18.149. With the gap now closed between Red Bull and Ferrari, my hunch is the current points leader might have something to say about that. 

Let’s dive in.

Charles Leclerc +115 (Bet $100 to win $115)

After gaining the pole position in the inaugural Miami Grand Prix, Leclerc led most of last weekend’s race before ultimately letting eventual champion Max Verstappen take the lead about halfway through. While the second-place finish was enough to retain his lead atop the drivers' and constructors’ standings, the gap was narrowed as Leclerc and Ferrari now lead Verstappen/Red Bull by just 19 and six points, respectively. 

After the Miami race, Leclerc went on record saying he thought they made the switch to medium tires a bit too early, and once switching back to hard tires, thought he could regain the lead on Verstappen. Now looking ahead to back-to-back weeks in Spain, the Ferrari team competed on both tracks last season and should now be better versed in the conditions they will present compared to Miami.

Taking a look back to last year’s results, Ferrari faired well, with both drivers (including Carlos Sain) finishing in the top seven and walking away with points. Now with much improved (and equal) cars to that of Red Bull, look for a much better result from both drivers in Barcelona. 

It’s also worth noting that during the Miami GP, Ferrari had a bit of misfortune in the virtual safety car to full safety car transition, not taking the free pit stop they were afforded. That in combination with the tire mix-up, really let Red Bull off the hook in a race that Leclerc could have very easily been the victor.

As the circuit turns back to Europe, I look for Ferrari to make the necessary adjustments as they have since the start of the season and find themselves victorious once again with Leclerc leading the pack.
