Formula 1 is back stateside for the United States Grand Prix (3 p.m. ET, ABC/WatchESPN app) at Circuit of the Americas (COTA) in Austin, Tex.
Heading into the race weekend, Red Bull’s Max Verstappen clings to a six-point edge over Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton in F1’s driver standings with just six races remaining this season.
Verstappen secured pole position in Saturday’s qualifying session, ahead of championship rival Hamilton and Red Bull teammate Sergio Perez.
Unsurprisingly, with the first starting position Verstappen is the US Grand Prix favorite with -125 odds.
Hamilton is next at +140 before a big drop off to Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas at +2500 odds.
Bottas, who qualified fourth on speed, will have to take a five-place grid penalty, knocking him back to ninth for the race.
This penalty moved Ferrari teammates Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz up to fourth and fifth, respectively, on the starting grid.
Leclerc joins Bottas with +2500 odds to win the United States Grand Prix, with Saints now listed at +5000.
Speaking of grid penalties, Sebastian Vettel, Fernando Alonso and George Russell will all be starting from the rear as well.
