Current world champion Sebastian Vettel looks to be the favourite for this year’s drivers’ championship already. With several wins already under his belt, the youngest ever world champion is well placed to take the title.
However, Formula One can also be an unpredictable business. For example, who would have thought that Pastor Maldonado would triumph at last year’s Spanish Grand Prix? The very nature of a sport where the margin of error is so slim means that there are some potentially interesting F1 betting odds to examine. If you are looking beyond Vettel for the drivers’ title, then perpetual rival Fernando Alonso and Mercedes’ man Lewis Hamilton are the challengers to watch. However, there are plenty of other markets for you to examine as well. Most obviously, the constructors’ title is also a keenly fought battle and Ferrari will hope to break the Red Bull stranglehold.
If you want to look further afield though, then you can bet on a dizzying range of odds. Picking a driver for a podium finish can be a sensible way to cash in on a driver that you have confidence in without banking on them actually winning the race. Quite often, you can also bet on a top six finish too. If you are looking for a quick result without having to sit through an entire race, then check out the odds on who will lead the race after the first lap. Another interesting market is who will reach qualifying session number three. This is a good bet if you think that you have spotted an up and coming promising driver.
Of course, if you want to have some fun, then there is all number of crazy markets that you can choose from. Select who you think will be the first to retire from the race or the total number of finishers at the end. If you have a favourite driver, then you can also usually find a series of special odds on all aspects on their racing. Whatever your F1 betting needs, you will be sure to find what you’re looking for.
