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.
It’s one of the enduring mysteries of the universe. Where they get the directors for the television coverage of Formula 1. Fans most often believe some sort of special selection process exists. This possibly involves going to a bat sanctuary and netting the first flappy creature with a white stick. You can bet on F1 in 2020 to feature plenty of replays. Not because we’ll want to see things again, but just so we can see them in the first place. Their ability to miss actual action is legend.
Another of the pre-requisites for being an F1 TV coverage director is a complete lack of knowledge about motorsport. So they’ve no clue what they ought to be showing at any given point. When commentators have to ask what happened to such-and-such a driver, the TV pictures are failing to do their job. Online betting sites in Austria like Bet365 will give you odds on the Austrian Grand Prix. They won’t let you bet on F1 in 2020 actually being any more watchable.
Bet On The Austrian Grand Prix Being Typical F1 Fare
The commentators too will be back. Sure, they might not be as enthusiastically expansive as the legendary Murray Walker, but they’ll get close. From basic errors to wild misinterpretations their inability to keep track will continue. Likewise, you can bet on F1 in 2020 to have just as many ridiculous pundits. Former drivers attempting to have a personality for the cameras after years of having it beaten out of them. And, let’s be honest here, the masks will only make these people prettier.
Austrian GP Odds
- Anyone Else – 175/1+
- Lance Stroll – 100/1

- Charles Leclerc – 5/1
- Max Verstappen – 2/1
- Lewis Hamilton – 2/1
The other familiar bugbear will be the weather. Any bet on F1 in 2020 will be, regardless of the bio-security, still be subject to the chances of rain. Central Europe has had mixed weather of late. So, we could well see a wet Grand Prix in Austria. Precisely what the blind TV directors will show without damp crowds of fans to fill with will be interesting. Pretty much the only thing those taking advantage of Austrian gambling laws can be assured of, is that it won’t be very interesting.

This will perfectly match the drivers. You can bet on F1 in 2020 to feature the usual parade of corporate robots. Over-paid personality devoid zombies talking with all the sincerity of time-share salesmen. They’ll all comment it’s not the same without the crowds. None of them will actually care. It’s against their programming. Of course, the drivers wearing masks won’t matter much. We’re used to seeing them in helmets, romper suits, and fireproof knickers anyway.

Likewise, the FIA hasn’t changed. The public health situation just allowed it to do what it always wants to do. Impose more rules. Everyone can bet on F1 in 2020 to have more rules that will then be completely misapplied. This is the FIA modus operandi. So, those hitting up Bet365, or other online sportsbook sites in Austria, can relax. Much as things will be different, the core basis of being an F1 fan will remain intact. It’ll be just as infuriating and annoying as ever it was before.
We take a look at why you can bet on F1 in 2020 to be precisely the same as it always has been from a fan’s point of view.
