It’s going to be a tight battle to the end.” Max Verstappen isn’t wrong. Despite a grid penalty he still finished second in Qatar to keep the title race finely balanced. “It’s going to be very difficult.” Admitted the Dutchman chasing his first title. He’s isn’t wrong. It is. The Mercedes loves the desert. Not that you can bet on the Saudi Arabia Grand Prix to settle things. The teams have done the math. Barring the horrific or the wholly disastrous, this season will go to the wire.

There’s no time for celebrations.” Lewis Hamilton is still all business, which explains why he went on; “I love the close battle and the pressure and the demands it puts on you and the whole team.” Oh do you, Lewis? Do you, really? So you’d not like to already have the championship wrapped up eh? Be serious. No one taking advantage of Saudi Arabian gambling laws to bet on Saudi Arabia Grand Prix will believe that. Mercedes PR department have done a job on Lewis.

Odds On F1 Title Race Close Up Going Into Penultimate Round

The bookies are giving out odds on the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix neither team will like. You can bet on Mercedes and Red Bull to wish for at least some sliver of difference. Online bookies in Saudi Arabia, however, do not appear willing to jump either way. Sure, you’ll get better odds on Mercedes than you will for a bet on Red Bull. However the odds on Red Bull aren’t that far behind. Indeed a bet on the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix is (fascinatingly) just a bit of a crap shoot. 

Drivers Championship Odds 

  • Max Verstappen – 6/5
  • Lewis Hamilton – 4/6 

Fans will point out that in theory the Mercedes ought to love the conditions. Certainly online sportsbook sites in Saudi Arabia will give you better odds on Mercedes right now. However, once again, the F1 odds at Bet365 etc. are based on past performance, and there isn’t any in Saudi Arabia. The Jeddah Corniche Circuit is a wholly unknown quantity for all concerned. So you can’t really bet on the Saudi Arabia Grand Prix based on previous races. Just ask Alonso.

Bet365 Has Your Bet On The Saudi Arabia Grand Prix

So as the teams ready themselves for another inaugural race, and the fifth night race of the season, fans sit back agog. They’ve touted the track as the fastest on the calendar. You can bet on Max Verstappen liking the sound of that. Whether it’s true or not remains to be seen. Certainly though you’d have to think the odds on Lewis Hamilton are just a tad optimistic. Red Bull are fast and the odds of Max Verstappen backing off at that first corner are now just astronomical.

Constructors Championship Odds

  • Red Bull – 12/5
  • Mercedes – 1/3

Still, you can bet on Lewis Hamilton to keep his foot in it too. Neither one is willing to surrender this title race. Not yet. Which, of course, gives fans the races they’ve always wanted to see. Closely matched cars with talented drivers at the wheel. Whatever happens you can bet on the Saudi Arabia Grand Prix to be exciting if for no other reason. Indeed this new race offers those who like to bet on sports in Saudi Arabia a neat opportunity. Just hope that’s still true after turn one.
