Formula One Betting
Formula One is undoubtedly the biggest form of motorsport in Britain and is also the most popular in many other parts of the world, the likes of America being the notable exceptions to the rule. Casting your eye over the nationalities of the drivers involved is enough to prove what a global sport it is, with competitors from all four corners of the globe involved.
As such, it is no surprise that it is a very popular sport to bet on and attracts plenty of custom throughout its eight month season which runs from March through to November and takes in some of the most incredible locations on the planet.
From the performances in the first free practices to the race itself on a Sunday afternoon, there is plenty of opportunity to back who will be the fastest and who will be cursing their luck as they roll to a halt early in the race.
Bookmakers have become more and more diverse with the markets available on Formula One and they are delved into in more detail further down the page.

Formula One Betting Markets
All the talk pre-season is about who is going to be world champion and this will continue throughout the campaign until a victor is crowned. This is the biggest market in Formula One betting and the one that causes the most debate amongst race fans. Any bookmaker worth their salt will be offering odds on who will win the driver’s championship and whilst most will be offering similar odds at the start of the campaign, variants will start to appear and value will become apparent with different bookies.
The constructor’s championship is also a season-long market although not as popular a one as the driver’s championship. There have been several periods of domination by constructors throughout the sport’s history and Red Bull are enjoying the most recent one having seen their main man Sebastian Vettel win the 2010, ’11 and ’12 world championships. These dominant periods lead to shorter odds on the main player but obviously very attractive prices if anyone can pull off an upset.
Of course there are plenty of markets for each of the 19 races over the season as well with the race winner being just the tip of the iceberg. Betting starts long before the race itself begins with markets available on the winners of the three practice sessions and of course on who claims the crucial pole position through qualifying.
Then there are a whole host of options mid-race including first retirement, fastest lap, appearance of the safety car etc. Needless to say, over a race weekend no one will be short of betting options.
