Charles Leclerc heads into this weekend's Canadian Grand Prix with his F1 title hopes slipping away in 2022 and the odds are firmly against him.
Leclerc made a terrific start to the season by winning two of the first three races of the new campaign but has endured a miserable run since taking top spot on the podium in Melbourne in April.
The Ferrari star has claimed pole position in each of the last four races but has failed to win any of them.
The latest chapter in that tale of woe came when his power unit gave out while leading last Sunday's Azerbaijan Grand Prix.
While Leclerc's title hopes have floundered in recent weeks, rival Max Verstappen has been dominant, winning four races from the last five after a tricky start to the year. The Dutchman now heads the standings with Leclerc third and trailing by 34 points.
Until now, Verstappen and Leclerc had been locked together at the top of the betting for every race, at least until qualifying has played out on a Saturday.
But Red Bull driver's momentum is now changing that in a big way, and the gap in the odds reflects that.
Leclerc is now under pressure in the betting from Sergio Perez too with the Mexican now seen by bookmakers as a bona fide contender for race wins.
