After a good start to the season, the resurgent Scuderia Ferrari will start the Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix in Imola (Sunday, 15.00 hrs/RTL and Sky) as top favourites. Sports betting provider bwin will pay out 2.2 times the stake if world championship leader Charles Leclerc wins again. Behind him comes world champion Max Verstappen (2.75), whose Red Bull has recently struggled with stability.

In the bwin rankings ahead of the fourth race of the season, Carlos Sainz jr. in the second Ferrari (odds 8.00) follows ahead of record world champion Lewis Hamilton in the Mercedes (13.00) and Verstappen’s Mexican Red Bull colleague Sergio Perez (15.00).


With odds of 501.00 for the Aston Martin driver, bwin believes it is highly unlikely that four-time champion Sebastian Vettel will make it to the front after his late and unsuccessful season debut in Melbourne. Mick Schumacher, whose father Michael won seven times at Imola in a Ferrari, is better placed with 351.00 odds. The first top-10 finish for the 23-year-old Haas driver is rewarded by bwin with odds of 2.75.
