Max Verstappen will win 21 out of 23 Grand Prix races this season, but one he won’t win is the Dutch Grand Prix according to a SuperComputer used to predict sporting outcomes for bookmakers.

Sports betting is a huge industry. Formula 1 is swarmed with partners punting their services through sponsorships, including Formula One Management themselves and of course, the Stake F1 Team title sponsorship of Sauber showing how gambling advertising is the new tobacco advertising for the sport.

Ditto all sports from Premier League Football through to IPL, NBA, NFL, MLB, etc etc are all part and parcel of the betting landscape. Hence betting companies employ the most advanced data-crunching methods to collate data and provide their analysts the numbers to keep ahead of the game. After all they have the most to lose, as betting booms across the globe.

Hence, BonusCodeBets put their SuperComputer to use. The one that works out odds for sporting leagues with dozens of teams, and thousands of players. Thus F1 with ten teams and 20 drivers is hardly going to be a challenge.

This is what they say about their inhouse Digital Nostradamus and its prognosis: “Created using code fuelled by real-time data, betting patterns and sentiment analysis, the SuperComputer then simulates every race 1,000 times for accuracy and delivers a prediction on where every driver will finish.”

Ahead of this weekend’s Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, Round 2 of the 2024 F1 World Championship, hot on the heels of the season-opening Bahrain Grand Prix a week ago, where Verstappen romped to a commanding victory he set the tone for what is likely to come, aka even more domination and 19 drivers chasing all year long.

SuperComputer: Verstappen has an 85% chance of winning the 2024 Saudi Grand Prix

In the wake of yesterday’s Qualifying in Jeddah, Verstappen claimed his 34th Grand Prix start from P1 on the grid and is the hot favourite to win this evening’s fourth running of the Saudi GP. To make amends for losing to teammate Sergio Perez last year, in a Red Bull one-two on the night last year.

This is what the SuperComputer predicts for the F1 season ahead: “Verstappen has an 85% chance of winning the Saudi Arabia Grand Prix in Jeddah this weekend, and is expected to only lose three races all season.”

Notably, Verstappen is scheduled to not celebrate on the top step of the podium at his home race, the Dutch Grand Prix which he has won for the past three years. A big call by SuperComputer who will not be popular with the Orange Army.

According to SuperComputer, Verstappen’s first defeat will be at the Japanese Grand Prix, Round 4 at Suzuka which he won in style last year. And he will also not be the winner in Singapore, the only race Red Bull did not win in 2023.

As for this weekend in Jeddah, the SuperComputer predicted the above-mentioned victory for Verstappen, with Sergio Perez and Charles Leclerc most likely to join him on the podium.

In the other Red Bull, Perez has just a 3.2% chance of winning the Saudi Arabia Grand Prix and is the closest challenger for Verstappen. Lando Norris and Lewis Hamilton are fancied at just 1.5% and 1.8% respectively.

The BonusCodeBets SuperComputer also predicted the likely finishing positions of every single driver from the season, with Verstappen predicted to win a staggering 21 out of 24 possible races this season – a win rate of 87.5%.

Oscar Piastri is predicted to win the Japanese Grand Prix,

McLaren driver Piastri will score his maiden F1 victory at Suzuka in two races time, with Verstappen and Carlos Sainz joining him on the podium, while George Russell is backed to win the Dutch Grand Prix with Verstappen again coming second and Sainz third again.

Finally, the Singapore Grand Prix is to be won by Norris, with Piastri completing the top three for that race. Beyond that, the F1 season is essentially over before it really even begins with Verstappen set to collect a whopping 585 points.

A spokesperson for BonusCodeBets said: “The dominance of Max Verstappen and Red Bull in Formula 1 is hardly a revolutionary concept, yet the complete ease at which he looks set to romp to another Championship is starting to get frightening.

“The SuperComputer is not just predicting wins for Verstappen and Red Bull, but complete and utter sovereignty of the grids around the world. There are quite simply none who can match his dedication, ability and guile on the tarmac. Perhaps the most terrifying thing is that, at the age of just 26, he may not even be close to his peak.”

BonusCodeBets have put their SuperComputer to the test, with such telling predictions there is nowhere to hide. Starting with today’s Saudi Arabian GP it will be judged by Verstappen’s victory. Should he lose in Jeddah, the clever piece of kit will be binned after tonight’s race!

If not the SuperComputer will survive to predict the Australian GP, which Max should also win it envisions. However, the real test for it will be a race later, at Suzuka where it predicts the first glitch on Verstappen’s expected 21-race victory romp.
