Can Ferrari win the 2023 Formula One Constructors Championship?

Although the 2023 Formula One Constructors Championship hasn’t been a complete disaster so far for Ferrari, things could have been better for them.

Two of the biggest races so far on the F1 calendar were the Bahrain Grand Prix on Sunday, March 5th, at the Bahrain International Circuit, and the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix on Sunday, March 19th, at the Jeddah Corniche Circuit.

Team Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz Junior finished in fourth place at the Bahrain GP with 12 points, and teammate Charles Leclerc did not finish and scored zero points. In comparison, Aston Martin’s Fernando Alonso, who finished in third place, picked up 15 points.

Red Bull’s Sergio Perez finished in second place for 18 points and the winner with 21 points was Red Bull teammate Max Verstappen. It was slightly worse for Ferrari at the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix.

Carlos Sainz Jr. picked up 8 points after finishing in sixth place, and Charles Leclerc finished in seventh place, which secured the team another 6 points.

What are the odds of Ferrari winning the 2023 Formula One Constructors Championship?

To get a much better understanding of just how likely it is that team Ferrari will win the current 2023 F1 Constructors Championship, the best thing to do would be to check the latest odds at sites like 10Bet.

For example, for Ferrari to win the championship outright, you’re currently looking at very poor odds of around 20/1 in the UK fractional odds format. In other words, they only have a 4.5% implied probability rate of actually winning.

If you’re not too familiar with fractional odds, 20/1 is the same as saying 21.00 in the European decimal odds format or 2,000 in the American/moneyline odds format. In comparison, the odds-on favourite team to win the F1 Constructors Championship is, as you may have already guessed, is team Red Bull Racing.

If you were to place a wager right now on them winning the championship outright, you would be looking at average odds of around 1/20. In other words, they have a mouth-watering 95.25% implied probability rate of winning. In American/moneyline odds, 1/20 is -2000, and in decimal odds, it’s 1.05.

Final note

Based on these odds alone, it’s looking as though it will be another season of failure for Ferrari.

If you do sign up to 10Bet to place a wager on any upcoming F1 races, despite the odds being overwhelmingly in favour of Red Bull winning, don’t forget that no bet is guaranteed.

If you do bet real money, always remember to be a responsible gambler. Never chase your losses, and only bet with money you can afford to lose.
