    Formula 1 2019 Odds

    After an outstanding 2018, Formula 1 championship odds list Vettel and Hamilton as favorites to win the world championship. Most sports betting sites list Hamilton as a slight favorite over Vettel, partially due to the dominance of Mercedes machines over the past half decade.

    F1 2019 Drivers Championship

    Lewis Hamilton +135 

    Lewis looks for a three-peat after pulling away from Sebastian over the last half of the 2018 championship series. As winner of four of the past five championships, Hamilton’s the man to beat in 2019 as long as his shuttle remains nimble.

    Sebastian Vettel +175

    Vettel won four consecutive championships in the first half of the decade riding Red Bull, but he hasn’t been able to replicate the same success in a Ferrari vehicle. Any slip ups on behalf of Hamilton will be punished hard by Sebastian, who will leverage other drivers mistakes into his fifth championship.

    Charles Leclerc +450 

    Leclerc will have an opportunity to reward Ferrari for the talent they see in the Monegasque driver. The constructor was clearly impressed with Charles handling of Sauber, outperforming his teammate while scoring a respectable 39 points. Still, a championship would be a shock, especially over his teammate Vettel.

    Max Verstappen +900 

    The F1 world would love to watch Max Verstappen lap the field, which would break the balance of power established since the turn of the century. This prodigy enters the 2019 season with Red Bull-Honda, a vehicle which likely won’t match Mercedes and Ferrari, the main reason he’s given the fourth-best odds to win.

    The Rest Of The Field 

    Breaking through to the top ranks of F1 racing is more difficult than ever, which makes most of the field longshots to win a championship over established favorites. Valtteri Bottas and Daniel Ricciardo acquitted themselves well in 2018, with Daniel scooping two first-place finishes and Valtteri landing on the podium eight times. Other than Valtteri and Daniel, the rest of the longshots don't appear to have much of a chance. 
    • Valtteri Bottas +2500
    • Pierre Gasly +4000
    • Daniel Ricciardo +4000
    • Nico Hulkenberg +9900
    • Kimi Raikkonen +15000
    • Carlos Sainz +20000
    • Kevin Magnussen +30000
    • Romain Grosjean +30000
    • Sergio Perez +30000
    • Lando Norris +30000
    • Lance Stroll +50000
    • Robert Kubica +50000
    • Antonio Giovinazzi +75000
    • George Russel +100000
    • Daniil Kvyat +100000
    • Alexander Albon +100000

    F1 2019 Constructors Championship

    Mercedes -120 

    Regardless of how well Vettel, Verstappen and Leclerc ride, the combo of Hamilton, Bottas and superior technology will likely net Mercedes their sixth consecutive constructors championship. Technical regulations have changed in an attempt to promote more passing, but there’s little chance that Mercedes will suddenly fall behind due to minor aerodynamic, weight and fuel changes.

    Ferrari +155

    It’s been 10 seasons since Kimi Raikkonen and Felipe Massa piloted Ferrari to a constructors championship. Red Bull Racing Renault and Mercedes have dominated the 2010s, leaving the Italians in the dust. Vettel’s a sure thing, but Leclerc will need to prove his mettle before Ferrari rises back into a championship position.

    Red Bull +450 

    With the brilliant Verstappen riding Red Bull Honda, there’s a outside shot at this team returning to constructors glory after parting ways with Renault. However, Pierre Gasly will need to avoid “miscommunications” and other mistakes to take advantage of any errors on behalf of Ferrari and Mercedes.

    The Rest Of The Field 

    Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull feature vastly superior technology and established star drivers in their prime, powering past the competition with relative ease. If any of these teams win the constructors championship, it would be one of the biggest surprises in the history of competitive sports. 
    • Alfa Romeo +25000
    • Racing Point +30000
    • McLaren +35000
    • Haas +35000
    • Renault +50000
    • Toro Rosso +50000
    • Williams +100000

    Australian Grand Prix 2019

    • Sebastian Vettel +165
    • Lewis Hamilton +215
    • Charles Leclerc +250
    • Max Verstappen +750
    • Valtteri Bottas +1100
    • Pierre Gasly +3300
    Despite leading the Formula 1 championship odds, Lewis Hamilton won’t be the favorite entering the first race of the season. He’s been known to start seasons relatively slow, as witnessed by his lack of wins until the Azerbaijan Grand Prix and his overall position after Formula 1 Montreal last year.
    Instead, Sebastian Vettel will be the favorite to win his third consecutive Australian Grand Prix, which would place him among Lex Davison and Michael Schumacher as four-time winners of the event. Vettel’s clearly comfortable with the track. As long as his Ferrari holds up, Sebastian will be tough to beat.
    Interestingly, Leclerc isn’t far behind Hamilton in terms of odds, which might imply a potential edge for Ferrari in the constructors championship. Verstappen hasn’t managed to put it all together in Australia yet, but if his Honda holds up, Max could scoop his first win Melbourne while sending a warning shot to the rest of the field.
    Bottas and Gasly will be considered longshots to win in Australia, because they ride Mercedes and Red Bull, respectively.
    • Nico Hulkenberg +20000
    • Daniel Ricciardo +25000
    • Kimi Raikkonen +25000
    • Kevin Magnussen +30000
    • Romain Grosjean +30000
    • Carlos Sainz Jr. +50000
    • Alexander Albon +100000
    • Daniil Kvyat +100000
    • Lance Stroll +100000
    • Lando Norris +100000
    • Sergio Perez +100000
    • Antonio Giovinazzi +150000
    • George Russell +200000
    • Robert Kubica +200000
