With just 3 more races to spare, the 2020 F1 season has already crowned a champion and it’s a very familiar face in Mercedes star Lewis Hamilton. After the Brit sealed a record 7th Drivers’ Championship in Turkey, he joined the great Michael Schumacher in the F1 history books. Although there’s still a mini tour of the Middle East left in the season and plenty of action is still to come. As expected, Mercedes has already won this year’s Constructors’ Championship with the duo of Hamilton and Bottas and sealed its latest triumph at the even earlier stage of Imola. With 3 races left and plenty of storylines in the sport that are yet to be concluded for this year, it will be an exciting event. Possibly, there could be potential reintroduction of fans as the next 2 races take place at the Bahrain International Circuit in the Middle East.

F1 Bahrain GP Odds
According to bet365, the following drivers are favored to win the 2020 F1 Bahrain Grand Prix: Lewis Hamilton – 1.36 Valtteri Bottas – 4.50 Max Verstappen – 7.00 Daniel Ricciardo – 67.00 Charles Leclerc – 67.00 Sergio Perez – 67.00 Sebastian Vettel – 67.00 Lance Stroll – 101.00
The newly crowned champion – Lewis Hamilton is the hands down favorite to win the race as usual, after having beaten Schumacher’s record of most F1 wins and equaled his tally of title victories. The Brit still has other targets as he has won 10 events this term and 3 more victories would see him move ahead of the German. The Mercedes driver can achieve one of those in the next few weeks, providing that he wins the last 3 races in Bahrain and Abu Dhabi. Max Verstappen will not settle for anything lesser as heads into the final 3 rounds of the season with the 2nd spot in the championship waiting for him. As there are still 78 points available, the 23 year old might just bridge the 27 point gap to Valtteri Bottas for the second place. Despite having his faint championship hopes on the line in Turkey, Bottas was beaten by his Mercedes teammate – Lewis Hamilton as he later qualified in the 9th position. Though the Finnish driver will be under pressure to hang onto the 2nd place over the next few weeks, the Mercedes team would look to dominate at Bahrain.
