Where can I bet on upcoming F1 races?
For the latest F1 betting markets and some of the industry’s most competitive odds, there are several trusted online bookmakers (sports betting sites) you can turn to, such as the official Unibet website.
The team that is most likely to win the F1 Constructors Championship outright is Red Bull Racing, and the driver most likely to come out on top is Max Verstappen.
For example, if you were to place a wager right now on Red Bull Racing winning the 2022/23 season outright, you would be looking at average odds of around 1/20. In other words, the bookies are saying that team Red Bull Racing have a whopping 95.20% implied probability of winning this year’s F1 championship.
When you convert UK fractional odds of 1/20 into American/moneyline odds, it would look like -2,000, and if you convert 1/20 into the standard European decimal odds format, it would look like 1.05.
For Max Verstappen to be the driver at the end of the season with the most points, you would currently be looking at odds of around 1/9 (-900 or 1.11, depending on which odds format you prefer), which means that Verstappen has a 90.00% chance of winning this market.
Current F1 constructors’ standings
Red Bull are currently at the top of the table with 12 points (3 wins, 5 podiums), and Aston Martin are currently in second place with 65 points (0 wins and 3 podiums).
You then have team Mercedes in third place with 56 points (1 podium), Ferrari in fourth place with 26 points, McLaren in fifth with 12 points, and Alpine in sixth with 8 points. You can see a complete list of the latest standings on the official Formula1.com website.
To place a wager on any upcoming F1 events, you must be at least 18 years. One of the most important things to remember about gambling for real money at licensed online bookmakers is that no bets are ever guaranteed and that betting with real money comes with risks.
Using ‘safer gambling tools’ at websites can help you manage your bankroll and keep you within your budget. Setting things like deposit limits can lead to a much safer and more enjoyable sports betting experience.
