Editor's note: The 2023 Emilia Romagna Grand Prix has been cancelled due to flooding in Northern Italy. The extreme weather has devastated the region and has resulted in the evacuation of thousands of local residents. The Grand Prix was scheduled to be the sixth race of the Formula 1 season. 

After a fun-filled weekend in Miami, the F1 universe heads to Italy for the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix on May 21. 

The opening Formula 1 odds board for the sixth race of the season is more of the same, with Red Bull running mates Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez taking up the top spots after exchanging victories through the first five.

Emilia Romagna Grand Prix 2023 pre-qualifying favorites

Max Verstappen (-250)

Max Verstappen has been the racer to beat for quite some time and that will remain the case until further notice. 

Three wins and two runner-up finishes to his teammate means the back-to-back Drivers' Champion is getting the most out of this dominant Red Bull. Oh, and he's also the back-to-back champion here in Imola.  

Sergio Perez (+330)

If it's not Verstappen, it's his Red Bull teammate Sergio Perez. 

He's in possession of the two other race wins and has finished runner-up in two of the other three, making up for four 1-2 Red Bull finishes in five races this season. 

Fernando Alonso (+1,200)

There's consistency... and then there's what Fernando Alonso is doing in 2023. 

He's logged five straight third-place finishes for 75 points and is also sitting third in the Drivers' standings. He's the best of the rest but lacks the pace needed to truly challenge the Red Bulls at this juncture of the season.

Understanding F1 betting odds

The most popular way to bet on Formula 1 odds is by simply picking the winner of a particular race. Other popular F1 betting options include which car/constructor will win and whether or not a particular race car driver will end up on the podium with a Top-3 finish.

F1 race odds usually look like this:

  • Sergio Perez +1,400

This means that on a $100 bet, you'll stand to profit $1,400 if Perez wins that particular race. If one driver is especially dominant, you might see a minus sign (-) ahead of that driver's odds like this:

  • Max Verstappen -120

This means that you would need to bet $120 to win $100 on Verstappen winning the race.
