The 2023 Formula 1 season will continue on Sunday with the 2023 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix at Jeddah Corniche Circuit in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. The race will begin at 1 p.m. ET and Max Verstappen will try to back up his win at the Bahrain Grand Prix to open the season. He won the 2022 edition of this race with Red Bull, finishing ahead of Ferrari duo Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz. Verstappen is listed as the -200 favorite (risk $200 to win $100) in the 2023 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix odds from Caesars Sportsbook while Sergio Perez is listed at +550 and Fernando Alonso is +800.

SportsLine's proven computer projection model simulated the Saudi Arabian Prix 2023 10,000 times and came up with a surprising leaderboard.

Developed by daily Fantasy pro and SportsLine predictive data engineer Mike McClure, this proprietary Formula 1 prediction model takes into account a slew of factors including track history and recent results.

The model has been scorching hot when it comes to picking Formula 1 race events dating back to 2021. It nailed both of 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 surprising victory. It followed that up by calling Verstappen's win at the Rolex Emilia Romagna GP in April and nailed Verstappen to win in Belgium, the Netherlands, Japan, the United States, Mexico and Abu Dhabi. It also called Verstappen's victory in Bahrain to open the 2023 season. Anyone who followed the model's lead on those plays has seen HUGE returns!

The Jeddah Corniche Circuit is a 27-turn, 3.836-mile track in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia that first opened in 2021. It was named the fastest street track on the Formula 1 calendar, with cars simulated to have average speeds in excess of 160 mph. The track is also the second longest on the calendar, with only Spa-Francorchamps being longer. Lewis Hamilton set the lap record with a time of 1:30.734 during the 2021 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix. 

Now, the model has dialed in on the 2023 Formula 1 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix and just released its coveted picks and leaderboard projections. 

The model is targeting one driver with double-digit Saudi Arabian Grand Prix odds to make a serious charge up the leaderboard! Anyone who backs this driver could hit it BIG. You ABSOLUTELY need to see who he is before locking in any Formula 1 Saudi Arabian GP picks of your own.

So who wins the 2023 Formula 1 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix? And which long shot is a MUST-BACK? ... Join SportsLine right now to see the full projected F1 Saudi Arabian GP leaderboard, all from the model that has nailed its racing picks last year, and find out!
