Who would Jesus drive for? It’s not a question that often crops up in the high-paced world of Formula One. Max Verstappen changed that. Ahead of the first race the Red Bull driver made some accusations and reigning champion Lewis Hamilton responded. It might not yet reach the levels of smack-talk other sports see. Those who like to bet on sports in Australia will already have heard much worse. So, their exchange really won’t change the 2020 F1 betting odds. Well. Not unless Max is wrong.
“Lewis is very good.” Max Verstappen stated flatly. “He is definitely one of the best out there, but he is not god.” Which is probably true enough. However, Max’s comments were slightly more barbed than they seem. Denial of a competitor’s divinity would usually not raise much of an eyebrow. You can bet on Lewis Hamilton not to be too worried about it. Nor should you expect the 2020 F1 betting odds to alter. Lewis Hamilton’s faith has long been subject of wry comment.
“Maybe God is with him.” Max went on, one of the few drivers willing to allude to Hamilton’s faith. “But he is not god.” The inference being that he needs reminding of this fact. Max isn’t the first to refer to Hamilton’s somewhat passive-aggressive approach to F1. Compared to other more fiery personalities Lewis is a bit of a cold fish. His 2020 F1 betting odds at online betting sites in Australia etc might nod towards another championship win, but Lewis seemed a little rattled.
Does Lewis Hamilton Think He’s God?

“Find it funny seeing that.” Smugged the Mercedes driver in response shifting up a snide-gear or two. “I have just always known to do my talking on the track.” Which is an unsubtle way of bemoaning Verstappen, 7/2 in the 2020 F1 betting odds, being young and so lippy. “I tend to see that as a sign of weakness.” Hamilton concluded in the best traditions of passive-aggressive trolling. This, in of itself, unfortunately rather justifies everything Max had said in the first place.
It’s easy to see why people, most of all Lewis himself, might be confused. He’s seven races shy of Schumacher’s record number of wins. Just one season short of a record-equaling seventh title. He’s on top form and racing for the best team in the world. Online sportsbook sites in Australia like Unibet have him favorite in the 2020 F1 betting odds. Orthodox wisdom would say that’s a safe bet. He’s barely put a foot wrong in five years. However, all greats do fade eventually. Will it be this season for Hamilton?

“This is my eighth year with this team and this year’s challenge is super exciting.” Hamilton lied in precisely the way his PR consultants would wish him to. “I have no doubt every single team member will try to raise the bar within themselves.” He promised, “and I’ll be trying to do the same.” Of course, having dominated the sport for so long, and you can bet on Mercedes to do it again this year, that sounds a bit hollow. Raise the bar? They ARE the bar. Just look at the 2020 F1 betting odds.

Naturally, you can bet on F1 in 2020 to hurriedly move conversations away from Hamilton’s faith. Likewise, you can bet on Ferrari to be hoping Charles Leclerc will say something silly too. After their flashy launch they won’t like Red Bull taking their headlines. So, the 2020 F1 betting odds are closer, the drivers more tetchy and the schedule more busy. Which is precisely why you should take advantage of Australian gambling laws and bet on it now. This is going to get crazy. Really crazy.
We take a look at how the drivers are getting ready for the new season with some minor trolling and a debate about divinity.
