Just three races remain on the 2023 F1 calendar as the circuit makes a stop in Brazil on Sunday. The 2023 Sao Paulo Grand Prix will begin at 12 p.m. ET from Autódromo José Carlos Pace, also known as Interlagos. The Brazilian Grand Prix 2023 will be contested over 71 laps and 190 miles, with Interlagos one of the few tracks using a counter-clockwise driving configuration. This is Formula One's only stop in South America this year, and the 2023 Sao Paulo GP is the 51st running of the race.
Max Verstappen has already clinched the drivers' championship, but that doesn't stop him from topping the Brazilian GP 2023 odds board. The Red Bull superstar is at -300, followed by Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton (+700) and McLaren's Lando Norris (+1100). Who should get your 2023 Brazilian Grand Prix bets as the season nears its finale? Before analyzing the 2023 Brazilian Grand Prix starting grid and making any Formula 1 picks, be sure to check out the latest 2023 Brazilian GP predictions and betting advice from SportsLine's proven projection model.
Developed by daily Fantasy pro and SportsLine predictive data engineer Mike McClure, this proprietary Formula 1 prediction model simulates every race 10,000 times, taking into account factors such as track history and recent results. It's had a strong history of success in motorsports, correctly predicting nine NASCAR winners since the 2021 season and its projected leaderboards have forecasted winners across multiple racing formats.
The model has been scorching hot when it comes to picking Formula 1 race events dating back to 2021. It nailed both of Charles Leclerc's wins in 2022, and at the 2021 Mexican Grand Prix, the model was strongly backing Verstappen as its top pick. The result: Verstappen dominated the field and ran away with a surprise victory.
The model followed that up by calling Verstappen's win at the Rolex Emilia Romagna GP in April and then nailed his wins again in Belgium, the Netherlands, Japan, the United States, Mexico and Abu Dhabi. It's also nailed all 16 of Verstappen's wins so far in the 2023 season. Anyone who followed the model's lead on those plays has seen huge returns.
Now, the model has dialed in on the 2023 Formula 1 Sao Paulo Grand Prix and just released its coveted picks and leaderboard projections. You can head to SportsLine now to see the complete 2023 Brazilian Grand Prix leaderboard projection.
Top 2023 Formula 1 Brazilian GP predictions
One surprise: The model is fading Sergio Perez even though he's the fourth-favorite (+1800) and is in second-place of the 2023 Formula One standings. Despite being one of three current F1 drivers from the Americas, Perez hasn't experienced success when Formula One ventures to the Western Hemisphere. All six of his victories have come in Europe or Asia, and over his last 10 races in the Americas, he's made just two podiums.
A podium seems like a fantasy for Perez at Interlagos, much less a victory. He's had 11 starts at the track with five different teams, and he's yet to reach the podium. He actually has twice as many finishes outside the top 10 (four) than he has inside the top five (two) at the Brazilian Grand Prix. His current team in Red Bull has just one Sao Paulo GP win since 2014, but that came by the incomparable Verstappen. Red Bull has only three Brazilian GP podiums over that span, so its struggles coincide with Perez' at the track, making him one to avoid in 2023 Brazilian Grand Prix bets. See who else the model is backing and fading at the 2023 Brazilian Grand Prix right here.
