The FIA had to abandon its plans to overhaul F1 due to the exigencies of the ongoing situation. This means that the 2021 odds on Mercedes winning the Constructors Championship are ridiculously short. Online sportsbook sites in the UK like Bet365 give them a skant 1/4 to win again. This is not surprising. They are, after all, still head-and-shoulders above the rest of the field. However, this doesn’t mean it’ll be a dull year for those who like to bet on Formula 1.   ... read more

Lewis Hamilton is probably a safe bet on the 2020 Portuguese Grand Prix. With 91 wins under his belt he’s likely to add another. The manifest Mercedes advantage almost guarantees he’ll find it a simple enough task. Online sportsbook sites in Portugal like Bet365 give him just 2/5 to win, well ahead of everyone else. Unfortunately, this does mean some think this mechanical superiority tarnishes his achievement somewhat. Hamilton, as you might imagine, disagrees.  ... read more

There were no Mercedes drivers on the podium after the last race. Monza delivered a thriller for the Italian Grand Prix, but don’t bet on the Tuscan Grand Prix being a repeat. The track might be the same, but the result won’t be. The odd circumstances that saw Lewis Hamilton lose his lead will not occur again. Anyway, Mercedes will have learned their lesson. This means the F1 odds at Bet365 will make the silver arrows the best bet on sports in Italy. Just not the most exciting. ... read more

There will be not one but two races at Silverstone in the coming weeks. Another F1 double header to fill the season with races, however repetitive. Well done FIA. The 2020 British Grand Prix betting odds, it will not surprise you to know, favor Lewis Hamilton. Online betting sites in the UK like Bet365 are offering just 4/9 on him winning. However before the lights go out and the engines go vroom, F1, and Lewis, have some issues to address. ... read more

There is a tendency to focus on how different it’s all going to be. No crowds, bio-security, venues doubling up. There’s a lot to speculate about. Those who regularly bet on sports in Austria and are considering a bet on F1 in 2020 won’t be concerned, however. They’ll know that despite all the changes some things will remain the same. From bizarre rule interpretations to horrific TV direction enough of what makes F1 fun will survive. You couldn’t hear the crowd over the engines anyway. ... read more

The anticipation is almost palpable. What was likely to be a damp squib of a season, as everyone awaits the 2021 rule changes, won’t be. The F1 betting odds in 2020 are going to be fascinating. Will Ferrari and Mercedes still dominate, with Red Bull trailing, or will some of the other teams start taking risks? Fewer races might be great for reliability but the drivers are going to be rusty. This could well lead to some interesting wagers at online betting sites in the UK, like Bet365. ... read more

Most of us enjoy a bet on F1. However, some people aren’t so keen. They see no point in risking a little cash on some over-paid posh plonker in fireproof underwear driving an over engineered go-kart too fast around a tax haven. For these people, there is an obvious alternative. So obvious that one day even online sportsbook sites in the UK like Bet365 may cater to it. Wacky Races. F1 has turned into a soap opera, so here are seven reasons for swapping to a 60s’ cartoon instead. ... read more

After their disappointing results in Austria Mercedes look to return to their winning ways with a triumph at Silverstone. The 2019 British Grand Prix odds on Hamilton seem to indicate they’ll do it, but at that 8/13 price at Bet365, one of the best online sportsbook sites in the UK these days, it could be worth eschewing the silver arrows in favor of the blood red Ferraris, who have to win a race sometime this season, don’t they? We take a look as they prepare for the off up north. ... read more

The Austrian Grand Prix provided just what the hordes of orange clad fans in the stands wanted, a victory for their favorite Red Bull driver, eventually. As the FIA continues to struggle with the concept that race driving is often a contact sport, the circus moves on to Britain where the odds on Max Verstappen at Silverstone hover at 10/1 on Bet365, one of the best online sportsbook sites in the UK, and that actually tempts because, with all these penalties, anything could happen. ... read more
