Who is the favorite to win the Monaco Grand Prix?
Max Verstappen is currently a +120 favorite to win the Monaco Grand Prix with Sergio Perez, Charles Leclerc and Fernando Alonso behind him. Here are the odds of winning for each driver.
Liz Loza’s choice to win
Fernando Alonso (+600). Racing in Monaco requires precision. The circuit is twisty and unforgiving, with hairpin turns and tight pits. Overtaking is rare, making qualifying key to success in Monte Carlo. While the Red Bull drivers have dominated 2023, Fernando Alonso’s midlife glow has proven to be very real. The Aston Martin is well suited to the slower track in Monaco and Alonso’s experience seems to keep the car ahead of the pack. With potential rain in the forecast, the vet is my favorite to win Monaco, with Max Verstappen next, and Sergio “King of the Streets” Perez just behind his teammate.
