Latest Formula One Betting News

Lewis Hamilton has taken a huge step towards a fourth Formula One World championship after his victory in the Japanese Grand Prix. The Englishman's win at the Suzuka circuit, coupled with his nearest title rival Sebastian Vettel retiring after just four laps due to an engine problem, means Hamilton's lead at the top of the standings has stretched to 59 points. With just four races remaining in the season and 100 points available in total, Hamilton will clinch the title at the US Grand Prix if he were to win and Vettel was to finish lower than fifth.

Hamilton has a fantastic record at the course in Austin, Texas winning there in four of the last five years including the last three in a row. It appears to be almost a matter of time that he is crowned World champion and when/if he is, it will be Hamilton's fourth title and would make him the most successful British Formula One driver of all-time. With all that in mind, it's no surprise to see Hamilton is the clear odds-on favourites with the bookies' to claim the title as are Mercedes for the Constructors championship.

Since the mid-season break, Hamilton has been in fine form winning four of the races and finishing as runner up in the other whilst in that same time frame Vettel has been forced to retire twice. Hamilton is now priced at just 1/100 in places to win the title and he's also the odds on favourite for the race in Austin.

The best F1 free bets on offer

All the talk over a Formula One season is about who is going to be crowned world champion at the end of it and this is certainly the most popular betting market in the sport. In recent years Lewis Hamilton has been at the forefront of the market with consecutive championships in 2014 and 2015 before narrowly finishing second place to Nico Rosberg. After the German's retirement, Hamilton will start the new season as the clear favourite again but could the likes of Sebastian Vettel, Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo compete? Well whatever unfolds, we'll have the latest odds and tips on the movers and shakers here at

Mercedes have wrestled back the initiative in the fight for the constructors champioonship in recent years with Red Bull having previously dominated with Sebastian Vettel period of dominance between 2010 and 2013.

When it comes to individual race betting obviously you can bet on the winner with the odds generally being ordered as they are for the title as a whole. However, with conditions varying widely between venues there are certain drivers who will move up and down in the betting as a result.

There is an interesting market for individual races which sees you betting on a driver to beat his team mate in any given Grand Prix. Every team has a lead driver and a secondary driver so the lead man will always be the odds on favourite in this match betting but with retirements rife and secondary drivers more than capable of springing a surprise then there can be plenty of value to be found.

There are plenty of options for those choosing to bet for free on F1 for each race from the first practice session until the chequered flag is waved. In-play betting is a popular choice for Formula One fans given the length of the races and can be an exciting way of using your F1 free bets on the sport by sticking with us here at

Some of the other markets available are as follows:

  • Drivers' winner without Hamilton
  • Constructor's winner without Mercedes
  • Individual drivers total season wins
  • Individual drivers podium finishes
  • Number of pole starts
  • Number of cars to finish a race

Who are the best ever F1 drivers?

The first formula one season was all the way back in 1950 when Giuseppe Farina won three of the seven races to become the first ever world champion in his Alfa Romeo. The sport has come an awful long way since then and the 22 drivers in the 2014 season now race 19 times all over the globe from Bahrain to Brazil and everywhere in between.

The UK has a rich history in the sport with a British driver winning the world title more times than any other nation. A total of 16 times a Brit has been crowned world champion with 10 different racers claiming the title, Jackie Stewart being the most successful with three championships. The closest competitor is Germany who have won 10 world crowns but they all came from just two drivers; Michael Schumacher who holds the record with seven championships and Sebastian Vettel who won all four titles from 2010-2013.

Lewis Hamilton joined an elite group of drivers to have won the world championship twice with his victory in 2015.

Sebastian Vettel sits alongside Alain Prost in joint third in the all-time list of most World Drivers’ Championships with four victories. The two men are one behind Juan Manuel Fangio and three off Michael Schumacher who may well never be caught and is undeniably one of the greatest drivers of all time.

The four titles which Vettel has to his name all come in a Red Bull car and that has moved that company from nowhere up to fifth in the all-time list in terms of Constructors. Ferrari are still comfortably clear in this respect, though, with a whopping 16 world titles to their name since their first back in 1961.
