The favorites for the Silverstone GP 2024

With Lando Norris, Lewis Hamilton and George Russell, there would be three contenders for a home win at the British GP in Silverstone.

However, the Silverstone GP betting odds and bookmaker predictions in the run-up to the race make it look more likely that Max Verstappen will be the party crasher at the British motorsport party.

Until the botched pit stop and the subsequent collision with Norris, he had the Spielberg Grand Prix completely under control. However, Norris also has a car capable of winning at the moment and so it could come back to a wheel-to-wheel duel at the Silverstone Autodrom.

Who would still have a chance of victory or a place on the podium according to the Silverstone GP forecast?

The Mercedes with Lewis Hamilton and George Russell have been strong in recent races. Russell benefited in Spielberg from the fact that Verstappen and Norris knocked each other out. But that also shows that Russell was the third force in the race at the time.

In contrast to the Ferraris. But Carlos Sainz and Charles Sainz could also be back at the front at any time…
