May 23, 2022


“First F1 bet, let’s see how it goes,” the well -known rapper wrote on his Instagram account on Sunday. In addition, he posted an image showing that he had wagered 300,000 Canadian dollars (220,000 euros) via a cryptocurrency gambling platform. He put all the money on red: Ferrari red.

Leclerc drops out

For a long time it looked like Drake was going to cash in big. Leclerc started from the first place on Sunday and managed to stay ahead of Verstappen for 27 laps without any problems. But then things went wrong. He ran into problems with the power unit and was unable to finish the race. A big downer for Leclerc, but also for Drake, who saw his entire investment evaporate.

The Curse of Drake

The world-famous rapper has a sponsorship deal with the gambling platform Stake and often shows on Instagram that he is taking a chance. As an athlete, you should now be worried if Drake puts money on your bet. So far he has had very little success as a gambler. He has already lost several tons by betting on the wrong horse in UFC fights. Several American basketball and American football teams have never even scored a win after Drake bet money on them. There is now also talk of the ‘Curse of Drake’. If Leclerc does not finish the race in Monaco again on Sunday, he at least has a good excuse.
