F1 World Championship Odds Tighten After Miami Grand Prix

It looks to be a two-horse race between Charles Leclerc and Max Verstappen for the Formula One World Championship this season. Either Leclerc or Verstappen has won every event so far this year, so they are currently the two overwhelming favorites to win the title. Leclerc and Verstappen are also big favorites at the Spanish Grand Prix next weekend, and they will look to further distance themselves from the field.

2022 F1 World Title Odds Following Miami GP

  • Max Verstappen -120
  • Charles Leclerc +120
  • Lewis Hamilton +2800
  • George Russell +4000
  • Carlos Sainz +5000
  • Sergio Perez +6600
  • All Other Drivers +10000 or More

Although he is currently sitting 19 points behind Charles Leclerc in the driver’s standings, Max Verstappen is still the odds-on favorite to win the F1 World Championship this season. He has won all three of the events that he has been able to finish this year, and he was second in qualifying in the two events that he didn’t finish and earned no points. Verstappen is the reigning champion, and he is probably the most skilled driver in F1. However, his overaggressive mentality can get him in trouble.

Ferrari might win the Constructors’ Championship for the first time in 15 years. It’s clear that their design has been excellent this year, and that has allowed Charles Leclerc to post the fastest lap at the first three events and claim pole position in three races. Leclerc is currently the leader in the standings because he has had clean races with two wins, two runner-ups, and a sixth-place finish.

Some observers may jump at the chance to take Lewis Hamilton at 28-1. Hamilton is a seven-time champion, and he barely lost the championship to Verstappen last year. However, it’s clear that Mercedes has had a tough time figuring out its car this season, so Hamilton is a stay away until we see more from the constructor.

The longshot to watch is Carlos Sainz at 50-1 to win the Drivers’ Championship. Sainz is currently fifth in the standings with 53 points, but he has three podium finishes. His two DNFs have him behind Sergio Perez and George Russell, yet there is a lot more potential with Sainz than with the other two drivers.
