Formula 1

The first Formula One World Championship was held in 1950 with the first race being held at Silverstone in the United Kingdom, a circuit which is still an important feature of the F1 season today. It was won by Giuseppe Farina in a 1.5 litre supercharged Alfa Romeo who subsequently went on to win the Championship over the course of seven races, narrowly beating teammate ‘The Maestro’ Juan Manuel Fangio, who went on to dominate the first decade of Formula 1, notching up five Championships whilst racing with four different teams.

Nowadays a typical Formula 1 season consists of around 20 races consisting of 12 teams, each made up of 2 drivers, with points being awarded to the top 10 finishers. These points are accumulated throughout the season, culminating in two annual World Championships, the Driver’s Championship and the Constructor’s Championship.

Sportsbet offers a range of F1 betting on both the driver’s and constructors championships, as well as many more. Click here to find out more.

Formula 1 Teams

Battling it out for the constructor’s championship, Red Bull are highly fancied in F1 betting having won the Constructors Championship for the past two years running. With 2010 and 2011 driver’s World Champion Sebastian Vettel and Australian Mark Webber in the cockpit, Red Bull look like this season’s team to beat having blown away last season’s competition, but runners up and eight time champions McLaren at times showed glimpses of what they are capable of, with drivers Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton notching up 6 wins and 12 podiums between them. Whilst Ferrari, the oldest and most successful team in Formula 1 history, with an astonishing 15 Drivers’ and 16 Constructors’ Championships have been in the game too long to be ruled out.

Romain Grosjean and Kimi Raikkonen both make a return to Formula 1 this year under the newly named Team Lotus (formerly Renault), whilst Force India, Sauber, Torro Rosso, Williams, Caterham (formerly Lotus), HRT and Marussia (formerly Virgin) will all fancy their chances of a successful season.

Formula 1 Drivers

This season features a Formula One betting extravaganza as, for the first time ever; six World Champions take to the grid.

In 2010, at just 23 years of age, Sebastian Vettel became the youngest driver to ever win a Formula 1 World Championship, an accomplishment he repeated the following year, setting a new record for most Championship points within a season, scoring a whopping 392. Currently in his fourth season at Red Bull, having helped the team win their maiden Constructors Championship, Vettel now goes in search of his third consecutive world title, a feat not achieved since the legendary Michael Schumacher claimed five in a row between 2000 and 2004.

Hot on his tail is fellow Red Bull teammate Mark Webber, who narrowly missed out on championship glory in 2010 in the final race of the season, having lead the Championship for large periods of time. With the might of the Red Bull RB8 behind him, the rapidly improving Aussie will be looking for his first ever world championship.

Lewis Hamilton burst onto the Formula One scene in 2007, narrowly missing out on victory in his debut season in the final race. He was not to be denied a season later however, taking the title on the final turn in one of the most dramatic finales in F1 history. Known for his aggressive driving style, Hamilton has never finished outside of the top 5 and is certain to be there or thereabouts come the end of the season.

Widely regarded as one of the greatest drivers in Formula One, two time world champion Fernando Alonso made the best of a disappointing season for Ferrari, claiming all 10 of the team’s podiums last season.

After a 2 year absence competing in the World Rally Championships, 2007 world champion Kimi Raikkonen makes a return to Formula One. The ‘Iceman’ signed a 2 year deal with Lotus and is back with a renewed vigour, but will that be enough? You decide. Check out the latest formula one betting odds.

Bahrain – 22nd April

Following last season’s cancellation, the 5.4km Bahrain International Circuit makes its way back onto this season’s calendar for the seventh time. Good news for Fernando Alonso, who has raced to victory here on three of those occasions.

United States – 18th November
