F1 Fantasy tips for the Turkish Grand Prix – why Red Bull and McLaren are the ones to watch


Lando Norris ($14.2m), who nearly won in Russia, continues to be an essential pick for your F1 Fantasy team – while George Russell ($6.3m) could well spring a surprise here if rain hits. He managed P3 on the grid in the wet at Sochi, and P2 in Belgium, after all.

As for your final pick, perhaps Aston Martin’s Sebastian Vettel ($15.2m) or Lance Stroll ($13.3m) could be an effective outside bet in Turkey given the former took his last podium for Ferrari here and the latter took a shock pole position for Racing Point in 2020. Speaking of Ferrari, note that Carlos Sainz will start from the back of the grid.

FORM GUIDE: Who will triumph in Turkey as F1 heads back to Istanbul Park?

For those hunting streaks, Daniel Ricciardo ($15.8m) of McLaren is the only driver who could hit a streak this weekend as a fifth consecutive top-10 qualification could net him five extra points.

Furthermore, McLaren could get 15 extra points if both Ricciardo and Norris qualify and finish in the top 10, as the constructors are on the verge of completing a double streak in Turkey. As a result, it’s wise to pick the Woking team this weekend. Their terrific form only helps their case.
