F1 Belgian Grand Prix Odds and Prediction, Spa 2023
If you’re a fan of the F1 Belgian Grand Prix, 2023 looks to be a year you can’t afford to miss.
Taking place over the weekend of 28 – 30 July in Spa, with the race itself being held on Sunday, July 30th, the F1 Belgian Grand Prix will be an exhilarating event from start to finish and will almost certainly be one heck of a battle.
The F1 Belgian Grand Prix was first held in 1925 and, since 2007, has taken place at the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps, often simply referred to as ‘spa’ for short. Spa is renowned for its unpredictable weather and has seen more wet Grand Prix events than anywhere else in history.
The F1 Belgian Grand Prix course is just 44 laps, with a race length of 191.398 miles (302.052 km) and a circuit length of 4.352 miles (7.004 km).
The driver who has enjoyed the most success here is Michael Schumacher, with 6 wins, while Ferrari is the constructor with the most victories here by a long shot, with an impressive 18 wins.

F1 Belgian GP Information, Analysis
F1 Belgian Grand Prix Prediction Course Details
The weather of any Grand Prix is always a focal point, though, at the F1 Belgian Grand Prix, this is especially apparent.
At one point, it rained for 20 consecutive years at the F1 Belgian Grand Prix, as the weather in Spa can be, shall we say, temperamental.
As far as temperatures go, as it is the height of summer, you can expect temperatures to range between 22c and 26c on average. There will likely be a light breeze, plenty of clouds, and sunny spells.
While we expect it to stay dry, there is always a higher risk of a shower than with many other Grand Prix races, so don’t be shocked to see the wet tires make an appearance.
F1 Belgian Grand Prix Odds to Win — Who to Watch
While Max Verstappen is always worth watching when he’s in this kind of form, in Belgium, there are drivers other than the current World Champion worth keeping your eyes on.
Here’s who we’re keeping a close eye on.
Carlos Sainz Jnr Odds
Carlos Sainz Jnr took pole position at the 2022 F1 Belgian Grand Prix, with a time of 1:44.297.
The Spanish Ferrari ace placed 3rd here in 2022 while finishing fifth overall for the season. He had a very mixed season, though when he performed well, boy, did he perform well!
Carlos may be Ferrari’s number 2 driver, but he is still capable of great things on the race track, so keep an eye on him in Spa.
Charles LeClerc Prediction
Another Ferrari driver you should definitely watch at the 2023 F1 Belgian Grand Prix is Charles LeClerc.
Charles finished the 2022 season in 2nd place overall, and while he was demoted to 6th place last year after speeding in the pit lane, he’ll be looking to take a podium finish next year.
The young man from Monaco is widely tipped for a future World Championship and is considered to be the biggest threat to Max Verstappen. So expect some heated battles between the two drivers in 2023.
Sergio Perez Odds
Sergio Perez has been almost as valuable to Red Bull as Max Verstappen and considering he finished in 2nd place here in Belgium in 2022, 2023 could be the year he takes first.
Ferrari and Red Bull Prediction
As far as Constructors go, Ferrari and Red Bull will both put on quite the show.
If LeClerc and Sainz Jnr perform well, it will be a real battle between the two Ferrari drivers and Verstappen and Perez of Red Bull.
Prediction for F1 Belgian Grand Prix in 2023
So, who do we think will perform at the F1 Belgian Grand Prix 2023? Here are our picks.
In 1st place, we’re picking Charles LeClerc. Charles is getting better and better, and if anyone has a shot of taking the title from Verstappen, it’s him. He knows this and will be out to pick up every point he can.
In 2nd place, we’re picking Red Bull’s Max Verstappen. Max looked unstoppable in 2022, and despite winning in Spa last year, we think LeClerc will have him beaten in 2023.
For 3rd place, we’re going with Red Bull’s Sergio Perez. Despite Max Verstappen being the talk of Red Bull, Sergio was extremely consistent in 2022 and finished 3rd overall, just 3 points behind LeClerc.
As for constructors at the F1 Belgian Grand Prix 2023, despite Ferrari being a threat thanks to LeClerc and Carlos Sainz Jnr, we’re going with Red Bull, who will also have the expertise of Daniel Ricciardo as their number 3 driver.
