Formula 1 Odds & Betting – The Odds Manager Guide

If you like action so intense you can almost smell the petrol and the burning rubber through your TV, then Formula 1 will be right up your street.

And at Odds Manager we’ll always bring you the very best F1 news, views, and of course those all-important Formula 1 World Championship odds.

What To Watch In 2021

If you like your Formula 1 motor racing, then great, as the 2021 season will be the biggest, longest and most exciting in history!

The FIA (Federation Internationale de l’Automobile) have approved a 23-race season in 2021, which will see the championship run from March to December as Lewis Hamilton looks to defend his crown.

Thanks to our good friend Covid, the traditional Australian Grand Prix curtain-opener has been delayed until November.

It will now be “lights out, and away we go!” with Bahrain hosting the opening race of the 2021 season on March 28 before it’s off to Imola in mid-April.

The ever popular Monaco Grand Prix will be on May 23, while the 2021 British Grand Prix will be at Silverstone taking place on July 18.

One of the most iconic races at the Monza racetrack in Italy is due on September 12, 2021 with the season ending on December 5, 2021 at the Yas Marina Circuit, Abu Dhabi.

The Saudi Arabian and Vietnamese Grand Prix are set to make their debuts this season, but there are still contingency plans in place in case COVID-19 continues to impact the schedule. 

Who will contend the championship in 2021? Can Valtteri Bottas or Max Verstappen push Lewis Hamilton further this season? How about the young Britons George Russell and Lando Norris?

F1 always delivers and with 2021 set to be the longest and most competitive season for years, it’s a great opportunity to have a bet and find the best odds at Odds Manager.

Formula 1 Odds – What To Bet On

Formula 1 is unique in that your betting fate is not only in the hands of the driver.

One flat tyre, one busted gearbox, one dodgy transmission and your money’s gone quicker than Sebastian Vettel down the home straight.

But if you can use that uncertainty to your advantage you can bag yourself some big-priced winners as a reward.

And don’t forget, we have all the latest Formula 1 title odds so you’re always up to date on the betting action.

Winner & Each-Way Betting

The simplest way to bet on Formula 1 is to pick the winner, but Lewis Hamilton’s domination of Formula 1 is lovely for him but not so good for punters!

Fear not though because a deeper dive into the stats shows that there is far more variety in who is coming in second in F1 races.

So an each-way dabble, where you get a return if your driver finishes in the top two, could be a profitable play.

Straight Forecast

Another way to increase your odds is to predict the top two.

So if you think Mercedes’ stranglehold over Formula 1 will continue in a particular race, you can back Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas to finish first and second, to boost your odds.

Pole Position Betting

We’re always looking for extra betting opportunities at Odds Manager.

And Formula 1 qualifying is an easy way to top up your winnings by predicting who will end up in the coveted pole position.

Long-term Betting

If you’re happy for the whole season to play out before you get paid out, you can bet on the Drivers Champion as well as the winning team.

At Odds Manager, we’ve had a good look around and we reckon bet365, Ladbrokes, and William Hill are the front runners.
Many bookies do offer in-play betting on the winner of an F1 race.
Formula 1 looks like being a young man’s game for many years to come, as Max Verstappen, Lando Norris, and Charles Leclerc are already driving for three of F1’s biggest teams, in their early twenties. And we aren’t jealous at all!
