Favourites To Win The F1 Constructor’s Championship For 2022

2021 F1 season

The Constructor’s Championship was first awarded in 1958, then known as the International Cup for F1 Manufacturers. This championship is a representation of the most successful F1 constructor over the season. The Constructor’s Championship is an accumulation of the individual points scored by both drivers of each team. Even though Max Verstappen (Red Bull) won the Driver’s Championship in 2021, it was still Mercedes who won the Constructor’s Championship, beating rivals Red Bull by 28 points. This victory saw Mercedes win the championship for the 8th time in a row.

In 2022, with a raft of technical changes designed to even the playing field, we could see a big shake-up in the final standings of the Constructor’s Championship. Among the changes is the re-introduction of the ground effect aerodynamics. Bigger tires measuring 18-inches will also be used. The goal of these changes is to improve overtaking and make the race more exciting.

Below, we will go over the expected favourites for the 2022 F1 Constructor’s Championship based on the information we have so far of the preparation leading up to this year’s season.

Mercedes

Mercedes currently stands at odds of –188. After their victory in 2021, they are already a heavy favourite for the upcoming season. The team already seems to be better suited for the regulations for 2022 which will place them at a good advantage. The addition of young talent George Russell alongside 7-time World Champion Lewis Hamilton will place them in an advantageous position. Over the last few months, Mercedes have been busy working on their new W13 race car and fans are excited to see what this has to offer.

Red Bull

After throwing all their efforts into 2021, Red Bull are likely to see a slight dip in performance in 2022. They recently highlighted their new livery on a car that resembles the one launched digitally from Red Bull Technology Campus, which is rumoured to look vastly different to what is currently being anticipated. Even though they’re not expected to fall too far behind in the Constructor’s Championship, fans are very curious to see whether these new changes will allow them to contend or not.

Ferrari

Ferrari is the most successful team in the Constructor’s Championship with a total of 16 titles to their name. Ferrari, amidst their history of success, has had a very disappointing two years in the Constructor’s Championship, placing 6th in 2020. It is believed, however, that given these new regulations, they will take a big step in the right direction in 2022. The pairing of Leclerc and Sainz provides hope for Ferrari fans. 2021 already saw a massive improvement from the previous year, so we’re expecting the team to further build on this.

Aston Martin

The Aston Martin team, which finished in 7th place in the 2021 standings, aims to make huge strides in the 2022 championship. They have hired some of the best engineers in the industry to improve their chances. They changed the design of their car dramatically and launched their new-look car on February 10, 2022. Not only that, but they increased the weight from 752 kg to 795 kg, enhancing the safety measures. There are changes on the team too, as team principal Otmar Szafnauer has left. Aston Martin is confident that Sebastian Vettel, a four-time F1 champion teamed up with Lance Stroll will thrive under the new regulations.

Conclusion

F1 is a sport that has always set the benchmark for technology and innovation. That has never been more apparent than in recent years, with F1 cars becoming rolling laboratories for developing modern technologies. But even by F1 standards, the 2021 season was an exciting one. We’re extremely excited about what season 2022 has to offer. With 23 races taking place, we’re expecting the same thrill experienced at online casino in Ireland. The possibilities are limitless!
