F1 Imola Grand Prix Odds and Predictions, 2024 Emilia Romagna

Italy has a rich and storied history of motor racing, and for F1 fans, the F1 Imola Grand Prix is one of the most anticipated races in the Formula One calendar, despite it being so new.

The Emilia Romagna Grand Prix, better known as the F1 Imola Grand Prix, takes its name from the region of Italy, where the race circuit is located. Speaking of the race circuit, the race takes place on the Autodromo Internazionale Enzo e Dino Ferrari, which is often referred to as the ‘Imola’ after the name of the town where it is located.

This Grand Prix was actually added to the F1 calendar in 2020 after the disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. It was supposed to be a one-time event to make up for the Grand Prix races, which had been lost. In 2021, as the Chinese Grand Prix was canceled, the event returned again and again in 2022 as it was so popular.

Sadly, the Emilia-Romagna region saw massive flooding in 2023, which led to the cancellation of last year’s edition of the F1 Imola GP.

But in 2024, the F1 Imola Grand Prix will be back, and it will take place over the weekend of May 17 – 19. The main event will happen Sunday, May 19, and will consist of 63 laps and 192.034 miles (309.049 km) around a circuit length of 3.050 miles (4.909 km).

Last time this race was held in 2022, it was won by Max Verstappen. But can he win again?

F1 Imola GP Information, Analysis

F1 Imola Grand Prix Prediction Course Details

Italy is renowned for its warm and sunny weather. But are those the conditions we can expect for the 2024 F1 Imola Grand Prix in May?

2022 saw a heavy downpour hours before the race started, meaning the track was wet and slippery. However, the race itself took place in warm and dry conditions.

The conditions in 2024 will likely be dry, with warm sunshine and clear skies. Temperatures should range between 20c – 25c.

2021 and 2022 saw rain cause some disruption, however, so a heavy rain shower is certainly not out of the question.

F1 Imola Grand Prix Odds to Win — Who to Watch

With so many drivers looking so sharp, which drivers should you keep your eyes on at the 2024 F1 Imola Grand Prix?

Sergio Perez Prediction

The Mexican Red Bull ace Sergio Perez is another name you must remember at the F1 Imola Grand Prix.

Perez is a driver who had a stellar 2023 and is second only to his teammate, Max Verstappen, for the Driver’s Championship in 2024.

With recent questions over the renewal of his contract with Red Bull being raised recently, he’ll be looking to show that Max Verstappen is not the only asset that Red Bull Racing has.

Lando Norris Odds

Lando Norris of McLaren took third place the last time this race was held in 2022 and will hope to improve upon this placement by pushing for the top spot.

Norris, who is continuing to race with McLaren, will be partnered by Oscar Piastri, who replaced Daniel Ricciardo last year. Lando has looked dangerous in recent events, including a third-placed finish at the recent F1 Australia GP. And let’s not forget his 3rd place finish last time F1 came to Imola. He’s certainly worth keeping your eyes on.

Max Verstappen Odds

Max Verstappen has won this event twice and considering he is a 3 x Drivers Champion and will be defending his title in 2024, you simply cannot overlook the young Belgian-Dutch Red Bull star.

He also holds the record for the fasted lap here, with a time of 1.18.446, so he certainly knows how to perform here.

Charles Leclerc

The last time the F1 Imola Grand Prix was held in 2022, Leclerc managed a respectable, but unremarkable 6th place finish. However, he’s got everything needed to do better here, including a racing red Ferrari racing in its home country.

Prediction for F1 Imola Grand Prix 2024

While some predictions are considered pretty safe bets, the great thing about the F1 Imola Grand Prix is the fact that you never know what will happen on the day of the Grand Prix. Here are our predictions.

  • 1st place: We are again going with Max Verstappen, not only because of his form but because of how well he has performed at the F1 Imola Grand Prix in the past.
  • 2nd place: We’re going with a bit of a wildcard prediction and are backing Lando Norris. Lando placed 3rd here last time around and will be looking to perform for McLaren. What better way to perform than to challenge the current champion?
  • 3rd place: We have Sergio Perez picked for third. Sergio is on form for Red Bull, and he and Verstappen make one heck of a team.

For Constructors, we’re going with Red Bull, as Verstappen and Perez have looked unbeatable at times. Ferrari looks to be Red Bull’s biggest threat, especially if Leclerc and Sainz continue to perform.
