Qatar Grand Prix Odds

Both Red Bull and Mercedes are now pulling out all the stops. There’s only three races left before the end of the season and their drivers are barely 19 points apart. That’s as close as these things get. One bad pitstop, one technical failure, one driver error, and it’s all over for either of them. So whilst online sportsbook sites in Qatar like Bet365 might give Lewis better Qatar Grand Prix odds right now, that may not mean much. Not at a circuit F1 has never visited before.

When you hear the words Qatar Grand Prix odds are you’ll instantly think of motorbikes. The Losail International Circuit has been a fixture on the MotoGp calendar for nearly twenty years. Now, to replace the Australian Grand Prix, the F1 circus descends on the track for the first time. Sure, some of the drivers have competed there in other formats, but for the teams this is all new. So you can bet on the Qatar Grand Prix to fascinate from first practice to the chequered flag. 

Currently, the Qatar Grand Prix odds online bookies in Qatar list favor Lewis Hamilton. Yes, he’s 19 points behind his Red Bull rival but after his win in Brazil it’s clear this season isn’t over yet. Thus, there’s a big question remaining for those who like to bet on sports in Qatar: Should you bet on Lewis Hamilton to pull off a remarkable come back? Or bet on Max Verstappen to end Mercedes dominance of Formula One? Either way you jump on that it’s quite the narrative, right? 

Qatar Grand Prix Odds 

  • Anyone Else – 100/1+
  • Lando Norris – 66/1
  • Carlos Sainz – 66/1
  • Charles Leclerc – 50/1
  • Sergio Perez – 16/1
  • Valtteri Bottas – 14/1
  • Max Verstappen – 13/8
  • Lewis Hamilton – 4/6

Who’ll See Their Chances Losail Away In Qatar?

Now precisely why the odds on Lewis Hamilton are better than the odds on Max Verstappen in Qatar is tricky. Sure, you can always bet on Mercedes to love the desert. We’ve seen it do well in the region. But is that enough to justify the difference? Perhaps the bookies feel that Max will be overcautious and Lewis willing to take risks. Who knows. However, they may quickly adjust their Qatar Grand Prix odds once the cars actually get on track. If, of course, that actually matters.

F1 Constructors Championship Odds

  • Mercedes Odds – 4/7
  • Red Bull Odds – 11/8 

You can always bet on F1 to attempt everything possible to eclipse the actual racing. Typically, that means minor technical infractions, weird stewarding penalties and team protests. Mercedes are already pushing for a review of Red Bull in Brazil. The odds on Red Bull complaining about something Mercedes do in Qatar are quite short. The Qatar Grand Prix odds are so close at online betting sites in Qatar like Bet365, that they will seek out any and all advantages they can get.

Of course, the fans don’t want to see a championship decided like that, but the teams? The teams don’t mind. They’re in it to win it. They’ll both look at the Qatar Grand Prix odds as a call to arms. Whatever it takes, they’ll do it. This will inevitably involve wholly ignoring the whole human rights thing in Qatar. Can you picture the odds on Mercedes or Red Bull actually voicing some criticism of the regime? You’d need the Hubble Space Telescope to see anything that long.   

F1 Drivers Championship Odds

  • Max Verstappen – 10/11
  • Lewis Hamilton – 10/11

Amnesty International, already disgusted by Qatar staging the World Cup, say the F1 race is just  more sportswashing. Perhaps they’re right. Perhaps it is just that. However, the odds on F1 refusing to race somewhere on ethical grounds are silly numbers. So whatever else might occur, the race will go ahead. So you don’t have all that long to take advantage of Qatari gambling laws, pick up some decent Qatar Grand Prix odds and sit back to watch this show unfold.
