Belgian GP 2023 Formula 1 Odds, Time, and Prediction
Max Verstappen has won nine of this season’s 11 Formula 1 races and is on a seven-win run right now. Obviously, it’s no surprise he’s seen as the No. 1 favorite to win the 2023 Belgian GP. But is there anyone who can stop him right before the summer break? We’re not so sure about
Max Verstappen has won nine of this season’s 11 Formula 1 races and is on a seven-win run right now. Obviously, it’s no surprise he’s seen as the No. 1 favorite to win the 2023 Belgian GP. But is there anyone who can stop him right before the summer break?
We’re not so sure about that, but we do think we might see a couple of surprises at Spa. This is a very fast race, so we suspect some unusual faces (with fast cars) might end up on the podium on Sunday,

Max Verstappen Going for the 10th Win of 2023
Max Verstappen is the best driver with the best car in 2023. That’s why it’s no surprise he’s won 9 of the 11 races driven so far this season. In the other two events, he didn’t win, but he did finish on the podium each time.
He’s coming off a win at the Hungaroring, which saw him start from the No. 2 position (behind Lewis Hamilton in the pole position). Even though Verstappen started the race from the second spot, he got in front of everyone on the first turn and had the lead until the very end.
We expect to see something similar from the Dutchman this weekend. That said, the big question ahead of the 2023 Belgian Grand Prix isn’t who’s going to win the race, but which two drivers will get on the podium alongside Verstappen.
Lando Norris Looking for His Third Straight Podium Finish
We think there’s a chance another trophy gets broken this weekend. Last weekend, Norris broke Verstappen’s Hungarian GP trophy by accident, while a week earlier he almost broke the British GP trophy. If he ends up on the podium again, we could see the same scenario play out again.
But will he get to the podium in Belgium? The fact is that, right now, he’s in the form of his life. Plus, he’s driving a very fast car, which should do well at Spa. However, there are many other cards out there that are designed to excel in these types of races. One of those is the Williams-Mercedes car driven by Alexander Albon.
Max Verstappen is going to win this race; anything other than that would be a huge upset. However, when it comes to who’s gonna finish on the podium with him, it’s much more difficult to predict. Lando Norris should be capable of getting there, while we also think Alexander Albon might upset the odds this Sunday.
Sure, it seems counterintuitive as he’s without a single podium finish since joining the Williams Racing team, but we think he can pull it off.
Picks: Max Verstappen to win; Lando Norris/Alex Albon podium finish
