2022 Formula 1 Championship Odds

We’re now four Grand Prix into the 2022 Formula 1 seasonwith two drivers having two victories apiece. Charles Leclerc has secured victories in Bahrain and Australia which means he’s sitting pretty at the top of the standings. 86 points have been recorded from the four races and it appears that Ferrari have got their act together at long last.

The 24-year-old finished in the first two in his first three races of the campaign, finishing second in the Saudi Arabia Grand Prix although a lowly sixth placed finish in Italy has shown some weakness in the camp and Leclerc’s F1 odds have drifted as a result.

There might still be some merit in backing the Monaco driver considering that he holds a 27-point advantage over his nearest rival, although there are a stack of Formula 1 races left on the calendar and the landscape can change quickly.

Verstappen’s Formula 1 Betting Odds Shorten

Max Verstappen has experienced a few teething problems at the beginning of the 2022 Formula 1 season, with the Dutchman having barely finished the Bahrain Grand Prix which was the curtain-raiser to the season.

Although the reigning champion was able to win the Saudi Arabia Grand Prix, there was then the setback of a retirement when competing in Melbourne although the Red Bull team might have sorted things out on the evidence of the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix.

A win in Italy moves Verstappen into second place and the 24-year-old is now favourite with some Formula 1 betting sites, with plenty of others in the mix.

Hamilton, Sainz and Russell Trading at Bigger F1 Odds

Lewis Hamilton had hoped to be competitive for McClaren Mercedes this year, although the Brit is now trading at a big price after a lacklustre start. After finishing third in the Bahrain Grand Prix, the seven-time champion has been well down the order in the past three races.

Carlos Sainz might end up coming good although his second and third-placed finishes in the opening two races have been followed by a double retirement, with the Spaniard having just thirty-eight points.

George Russell has been racing fairly steadily and has finished in the top five in all four races thus far, although he only has one podium finish to show for his efforts so far.

F1 Drivers 2021 World Championship Betting Tips

The 2021 Formula 1 Drivers’ World Championship is firmly up for grabs, with Max Verstappen taking a decisive step towards a first ever title when securing maximum points in the USA Grand Prix. The Dutchman and his Red Bull team managed to get their tactics right in the Circuit of the Americas, with Verstappen able to celebrate with his team in Texas which means that he could be close to achieving his dream.

Verstappen will now bid to stay ahead of Lewis Hamilton after establishing a ten-point margin of victory, with the bottom line being that the 24-year-old has achieved three first placed finishes and two second placed finishes in the past six races.

Can Lewis Hamilton Bridge the Gap?

However, the bottom line is that Max has never realised his potential and claimed a Formula 1 World Championship and there are going to be plenty of nerves in Mexico City, while there are a further four races where Lewis Hamilton will hope to get the better of his adversary and he’s nearly always found a way.

Hamilton is trading at 2.75 on the outright F1 betting right now, with the Brit having already landed seven titles and there’s every chance that he will use all his experience to take this F1 Drivers’ Championship to the wire.

Since 2014, the year 2016 was the only time where the 36-year-old has fallen short of claiming the hugest prize in motor sport although there are concerns over the form of Hamilton and his Mercedes team. Since winning three of his first four races, there have only been two successes at thirteen attempts.

2021 Formula 1 betting tips – Hamilton odds-on for title

The 2021 Formula One World Championship is now under way and the Bahrain Grand Prix took place on 28 March, with the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix, the Portuguese Grand Prix and the Spanish Grand Prix on the horizon and the F1 betting sites have the current title race as a two-driver affair.

Lewis Hamilton has a victory under his belt after taking the chequered flag in Bahrain, with the Brit landing 25 points although the Mercedes driver didn’t get pole position and also failed to record the fastest lap, which suggests that he might not have everything his own way this season.

Can Anyone Stop Lewis Hamilton Winning 8th Formula 1 Title?

Hamilton has become a legendary Formula 1 driver and he’s bidding to win a fifth consecutive title after racking up a string of successes, with the latest Formula 1 betting sites chalking up 8/11 about the Brit retaining his title and he’s likely to be hard to beat.

Considering that Hamilton won the 2020 Drivers’ Championship title by over 100 points, then many will think that’s a big price about someone who is backed by a quality constructor and there’s no reason to desert a driver who recorded eleven Formula 1 victories last term.

However, the bookies are currently prepared to chalk up odds-against quotes about Hamilton when it comes to the latest Formula One races and it’s clear that the Red Bull team have their act together for the 2021 season.

Verstappen Bidding to Win First Ever F1 Drivers’ Title

Max Verstappen is receiving plenty of respect from the Formula 1 betting sites and the Dutchman was second to Hamilton in Bahrain after previously earning pole position for the 2021 curtain-raiser, with the Red Bull driver now ready for a genuine title assault and it could be time to back him at 6/4 before the driver gets going.

The 23-year-old has got to improve the number of wins he records and the worrying statistic is that the Aston Martin Red Bull Racing driver has achieved no more than three F1 victories in any given season, although it appears that he’s never driven a more reliable or faster car.

Perhaps it’s worth taking a watching brief when it comes to Verstappen, with Valtteri Bottas the other driver who could have a say in the Formula 1 title race although the Finn is very much playing second fiddle to Hamilton when it comes to the Mercedes team, with Sergio Perez in a similar boat at Red Bull Racing.

It looks like a straight shootout between Mercedes and Red Bull when it comes to the Constructors’ Championship, with the former trading at motor racing betting odds of 1/2, while the latter are available at 2/1.

2020 Formula 1 World Championship betting preview

Lewis Hamilton won a first Formula 1 Drivers Championship in 2008 although the British driver had to wait a long time to claim a second title in 2014, although the victories have been coming thick and fast since then.

Hamilton grabbed back-to-back titles in 2014 and 2015 before he embarked on a hat-trick between 2017 and 2019, with the Mercedes driver safely on the way to becoming one of the most successful Formula 1 drivers of all time.

The 34-year-old has a few years left before he decides to call it a day, with the Stevenage-born driver currently odds-on to claim title number eight and it’s hard to see how anyone is going to stop him considering that he drivers for the best Constructor in the business.

With two races of the 2019 season remaining, Hamilton enjoyed a 67-point margin of victory and the next driver on the leaderboard was Valtteri Bottas who is currently trading at 9/2 to win his first ever Drivers Championship in a year’s time.

The Finn looks likely to claim second place in 2019 and the 30-year-old is clearly open to further improvement, with Hamilton’s team-mate clearly wanting to close the gap and hope that he doesn’t have to play second fiddle.

Mercedes are going to be red-hot favourites in the Constructors Championship considering that they have the first two home in 2019 and they will have the odds-on favourite to win in 2020.

Perhaps Charles Leclerc is the driver that will give Mercedes the most to think about, with the man from Monaco having landed a couple of eye-catching victories when taking the chequered flag in Belgium and Italy this year.

The Ferrari driver will really hope that his car is able to compete favourably against the leading constructor in the Championship, with Max Verstappen thinking similar thoughts when he gets behind the wheel of his Red Bull Racing-Honda.

Verstappen comes from a long line of Formula 1 racing drivers and the Dutchman enjoyed a tussle for third place along with Leclerc and Sebastian Vettel, with the latter no stranger to landing F1 titles.

The German won four consecutive Formula 1 World Championships between 2010 – 2013, with the 32-year-old arguably the most talented and he was able to land no less than nine podium finishes although a couple of recent later retirements in the latter part of the season has been telling.

The five drivers mentioned are likely to be the quintet who are challenging for the 2020 Formula 1 World Championship, with Verstappen and Vettel available at 13/2 with Ladbrokes.

There are going to be some bookmakers who are offering “Betting Without Hamilton” as far as the Drivers Championship is concerned, with Leclerc likely to be trading as favourite on this market.

For fans of Formula 1 the winter months are a real drag but with testing well and truly underway ahead of the 2016 season and the first race scheduled to take place in Melbourne on the 20th March, the long wait will soon be over. The 2015 season may not have been a vintage year in some respects, with the Mercedes dominance proving a little galling for some, but try telling that to Lewis Hamilton. The Brit romped to a second consecutive World Championship and will be looking to make it three in a row. Read on as we take a look at the 2016 F1 season and offer up our early ante post betting tips, predictions and analysis, as well as bringing you live betting odds comparison for the outright winner market.

That outright betting is headed by Hamilton, predictably enough, and even at odds as short as just 8/13 with Coral there are sure to be plenty backing the Mercedes supremo for glory in this year’s Drivers Championship. Hamilton won an impressive 10 races last season and was only off the podium twice, one of those being a retirement. He sealed the title with three races to spare and his 59 point winning margin could easily have been even bigger had his teammate Nico Rosberg not won the final three races of the campaign when, arguably, Hamilton had (literally and metaphorically) taken his foot off the gas.

Rosberg is the principle challenger this year and is the second favourite in the outright winner market, priced at best betting odds of 3/1 with Unibet. The young German won a total of six races in the 2015 Formula 1 season and added a further nine podiums to that, illustrating the near total dominance Mercedes enjoyed last season. This season the teammates will once more be allowed to race and it will be interesting to see how the team handle the rivalry between the two. Once unquestionably friends, Rosberg and Hamilton now have something of an unusual relationship, where rivalry has displaced affection, though not yet respect.

The third favourite is another German, Sebastian Vettel. He was the only non-Mercedes driver to taste race victory last season, triumphing in Malaysia, Singapore and Hungary. The four-time Drivers Championship winner will be desperate for just a little more from his car to enable him to compete more effectively with Rosberg and Hamilton and the bookies are clearly respecting him, pricing him at odds of 4/1 (Bet365) to claim a first F1 title since 2013. Vettel undoubtedly has all the personal tools to really give things a go but until we know a little more about how his team and car will perform, those odds look a shade on the short side.

As with most Formula One betting tipsters, we find it hard to see the outright Drivers Championship winner coming from outside the top three in the betting. If you want to look at longer odds options then good luck, but Fernando Alonso is next at a massive 25/1 (Ladbrokes) and we really don’t see it happening for the Spaniard.

Overall we quite simply cannot go against the odds makers here and though it won’t offer the biggest return, odds of 8/13 look worth taking on Hamilton to defend his title. The only caveat would be that such short odds could be deemed risky with two rounds of testing still to come and the outside risk of injury but overall we predict yet more F1 champagne for Hamilton in 2016.

The 2015 Formula One season gets underway on the 15th March with the Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne and testing is already well underway. Read on as we look at the Drivers Championship and assess whether or not Lewis Hamilton can retain his world title, offer up our predictions for the season ahead and bring you the best available betting odds for all the drivers via our live odds comparison.

Last season F1 was dominated by the Mercedes duo of Hamilton and his German colleague Nico Rosberg. The Red Bull and Sebastian Vettel era was well and truly brought to an end as the supremacy of one team was swapped for that of another.

That said, at least we had major excitement in Formula One last year, with the in-house fighting between the Mercedes teammates a major talking point of what was, in fact, a great year. The duel between those two former-friends threatened to spill over on more than one occasion but for viewers and the betting masses it made 2014 a season to remember.

We predict more of the same this season in truth as the F1 betting is again headed by the same two drivers. Those wanting to bet on Hamilton to claim his third world title can get odds of just 8/11 with BetVictor, whilst Rosberg isn’t too much further back in the odds at 11/4. That may look a considerable gap in the betting but when one considers that third favourite Vettel is out at 16/1 it’s clear that this Drivers Championship is Mercedes’ for the taking, at least as far as the bookies are concerned.

It is hard to disagree with those odds though, such was the dominance of the team last season. There have been one or two rule changes but nothing big enough that the Mercedes advantage looks in danger of being significantly reduced. There have been one or two very small blips in testing but overall Hamilton has to be the man to beat this term.

Last year he was hit by bad luck and let his emotions get the better of him at times but this year, given average or better fortune, we predict a more mature Hamilton will romp to another world title and betting odds of 8/11 actually look like good value.

If that’s too short for your tastes then Rosberg, who should, of course, also be a much better driver for his experiences last season, could cash in should Hamilton suffer an injury but if you want to go for an outsider than we would suggest go the whole hog and opt for our second betting tip, Daniel Ricciardo at 20/1. Betting on the Australian each way may offer some value if the Red Bulls continue to improve and Rosberg struggles with the greater expectation this year, but overall it just has to be Hamilton.
