Charles Leclerc must feel like he's been living in a time loop.
The Ferrari driver was once again leading the pack at the French Grand Prix, only for a mechanical failure in his car to cause a crash and take him out of the race. It's the third time this season that he's suffered the same fate.
Now, if he wants to catch Max Verstappen in the Driver Standings, he can ill afford to lose another race. He sits 63 points back from the Red Bull driver heading into this week's Hungarian Grand Prix.
Let's take a look at the top 10 odds to win this weekend's race, courtesy of WynnBET Sportsbook.

F1 Betting Picks: Best Bet to Win Hungarian Grand Prix
Charles Leclerc has proven to be arguably the fastest driver on the circuit, but car issues have continued to derail him.
With that being said, I'm going to get a little bit risky and bank on Ferrari to have a clean race. The Hungarian Grand Prix has never been a strong race for Verstappen, as it's one of the few that he hasn't yet won.
This is the rare occasion that I'd stay away from betting on Verstappen, especially before the qualifying takes place on Saturday.
Bet on Leclerc to keep his car on the road, and be the first to cross the finish line.
Pick: Charles Leclerc +150
