The Formula One Canadian GP will be held on Sunday, June 10, 2018, with practice and qualifications being held a few days before the race. The annual auto race has been held in Canada since 1961 and is a part of the F1 World Championship since 1967. The race is held at the Gilles Villeneuve circuit, where drivers will fight for the number 1 spot over 70 laps.
Last year, the race was won by Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton who also holds the fastest lap record on the Canadian Grand Prix. This popular race was the third most watched sports event in 2015 (behind the Super Bowl and UEFA Champions League final) which shows just how important racing fans think it is. The great Michael Schumacher has recorded most wins on the circuit with 7, with four-time champion Lewis Hamilton being right behind him with 6.
This year’s Canadian GP will be particularly interesting as it can help title favorites such as Hamilton or Vettel climb up further on the ladder. Both Vettel and Hamilton have two wins in the first 6 races of the 2018 F1 season and although the Brit is in the lead, Vettel could soon overtake him with a win at the Canadian GP.
Here are the odds for this exciting race from 5 well-known online betting sites:
