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 drivers in now race 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. Lewis Hamilton has now won the world title on five different occasions, two more than the three won by Jackie Stewart.  Hamilton has now drawn level with Juan Manuel Fangio and has a good chance of equalling if not beating the record of seven world titles won by Michael Schumacher.

Sebastian Vettel sits alongside Alain Prost have both won the title four times. 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.
