The 2022 Formula 1 schedule continues on Sunday with the 2022 Brazilian Grand Prix at Autodromo Jose Carlos Pace (also known as Interlagos) in Sao Paulo. The race has a scheduled start time of 1 p.m. ET. Max Verstappen is this year's Formula 1 World Champion and Red Bull Racing has already locked up the constructors' championship. Verstappen's 14 wins this season are the most in F1 history and with two races left in the season, he'd love to continue his dominance.

Verstappen is the current favorite in the 2022 Brazilian Grand Prix odds from Caesars Sportsbook at -225 (risk $225 to win $100). Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton is next on the Sao Paulo Grand Prix odds board at 11-2 while Ferrari's Charles Leclerc checks in at 12-1. Before analyzing the 2022 Brazilian Grand Prix starting grid and making any Formula 1 picks, be sure to check out the latest 2022 Sao Paulo GP predictions and betting advice from SportsLine's proven projection model.

Developed by daily Fantasy pro and SportsLine predictive data engineer Mike McClure, this proprietary Formula 1 prediction model simulates every race 10,000 times, taking into account factors such as track history and recent results. It's had a strong history of success in motorsports, correctly predicting seven winners during the 2021 NASCAR season and its projected leaderboards have forecasted winners across multiple racing formats.

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 surprise victory. The model followed that up by calling Verstappen's win at the Rolex Emilia Romagna GP in April and then nailed his wins again in Belgium, the Netherlands, Japan, the United States and Mexico. He also nailed Leclerc's podium finish for a +190 payout in Austin. Anyone who followed the model's lead on those plays has seen huge returns

Now, the model has dialed in on the 2022 Formula 1 Sao Paulo Grand Prix and just released its coveted picks and leaderboard projections. You can head to SportsLine now to see the complete 2022 Brazilian GP leaderboard projection.

Top 2022 Formula 1 Brazil GP predictions

One massive shocker: the model is fading Hamilton even though he is second favorite for the 2022 Brazil Grand Prix at 11-2. Hamilton won last year's Brazilian Grand Prix and is a three-time winner at Interlagos but it's been an incredibly frustrating season for the seven-time world champion. 

With Mercedes battling equipment issues all year, Hamilton is winless for the first time in his career and sits fifth in the standings with Carlos Sainz Jr. knocking at his door to drop him into sixth. He'll start all the way back in eighth on Sunday and the model has him barely making the podium. See who the model is backing right here.
