F1 Singapore Grand Prix predictions, odds, betting tips, best bets for 2023 race at Marina Bay

For the first time in nearly half a year, Formula One returns to Asia for the 2023 Singapore Grand Prix. 

Known as one of the best night races on the calendar, the Marina Bay Street Circuit usually delivers the drama as we’ve seen countless times down the years.

This time around, it’s Red Bull’s Max Verstappen who comes into the race as heavy favourite as he looks to further extend his record-breaking consecutive wins streak. That tally currently stands at ten races in succession after he overtook Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz last weekend in Monza to claim another chequered flagged finish. 

His teammate Sergio Perez came home in P2 in Italy as he begins to regain some form though and could put on a show here after he won at this track last year.

There’s also plenty of other drivers who could spring a surprise this weekend. McLaren duo Lando Norris and Oscar Piastri remain in solid form, while Mercedes’ teammates Lewis Hamilton and George Russell seem to have a quick car around these tighter circuits. 

Ahead of the action, The Sporting News dives through all of the odds to give you the best bets and tips for the upcoming race.

F1 Singapore Grand Prix 2023: Best bet

  • Pick: Lewis Hamilton to finish on the podium
  • Odds: +180 (BetMGM)

Although he only managed to get as high as P6 at the end of the last race in Monza, we’re backing Lewis Hamilton and his Mercedes to be best of the rest behind Red Bull this weekend. 

With the Marina Bay Street Circuit proving a very difficult track to navigate, those with the most experience should have a distinctive advantage this weekend – and they don’t come much more experienced than the British former world champion. 

Mercedes have improved of late and in Monza, they had a car that proved the fastest under braking – a key feature of this track which should stand them in good stead. Additionally, Hamilton loves this weekend’s race, claiming six podium finishes including four wins. 

F1 Singapore Grand Prix 2023: Prop bet

  • Pick: Alex Albon to finish in the points
  • Odds: -150 (BetMGM)

As other mid-table teams continue to drop off form-wise – most notably Haas and Alfa Romeo – Williams instead continue to make solid strides this season. 

After last weekend’s race in Italy, the British team now sit in P7 in the Constructors standings on 21 points, each of those claimed by Alex Albon. 

He managed to defend his position last time out to finish in P7 during the Italian Grand Prix, which made it four points finishes across his last seven races – a notable achievement given his team’s relative lack of performance compared to the top four or five teams. 

As such, we fancy the Thai-British driver to accomplish that feat again in Singapore this weekend, a track where he finished P6 during his first running with Red Bull. 

F1 Singapore Grand Prix 2023: Flier bet

  • Pick: George Russell to record the fastest lap
  • Odds: 12/1 (+1200) (BetOnSports)

So, we’ve picked a driver to have the fastest lap across the last couple of races and although none have proven correct so far, the logic remains sound in fairness. 

Across the last three races at Monza, Zandvoort and Spa prior, a driver other than Verstappen has taken the extra point for the fastest lap even though the Dutchman has been the substantial favourite to achieve that feat.

As such, we’re taking Mercedes’ Russell this time around at 12/1 (+1200), which seems very good odds for a driver who recorded the fastest lap in Azerbaijan back during the third race of the season. Since then, the German constructors have improved their car and at Singapore, it should prove strong especially as it remains the best car on the grid under braking.
