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 to win for each driver.
Liz Loza's pick to win
Fernando Alonso (+600). Racing at Monaco requires precision. The circuit is twisty and unforgiving, featuring tight turns and cramped pit lanes. Overtaking is rare, which makes qualifying key to succeeding in Monte Carlo. While the Red Bull drivers have dominated 2023, Fernando Alonso's mid-life glow up has proven to be very real. The Aston Martin is well-suited for Monaco's slower track and Alonso's experience figures 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.
