F1 betting at Ladbrokes
Formula One is one of the most glamorous and dramatic sports on the planet and here at Ladbrokes we are in pole position when it comes to F1 betting.
The thrills and spills of grand prix racing have captured the imagination of motor sport fans throughout the world ever since the first race was run at Silverstone in 1950.
That excitement reached a crescendo in 2021 which produced one of the greatest seasons of all time when Max Verstappen controversially won his first world title by overtaking Lewis Hamilton on the final lap, although Formula One’s race director Michael Masi came under scrutiny for his handling of a late safety car.
It was an incredible conclusion to an outstanding season in which Hamilton and Verstappen headed to the UAE level on 369.5 points and as you can imagine Ladbrokes were there for every twist and turn with a range of F1 odds for all the races.
Of course, we’re revved up with outright markets on the drivers’ and constructors’ championship, but our F1 betting section also offers odds on the race and in qualifying, so let's take a look at some of the options surrounding a Grand Prix.
F1 betting isn’t just about race day. Sometimes the most important day is Saturday when the drivers go through three qualifying stages to start on pole, a crucial place to be at tracks like Monaco where overtaking opportunities are rare.
Starting at the head of the grid goes to the driver with the fastest time in qualifying and it goes without saying that Ladbrokes are at the front of the F1 betting queue when it comes to this market.
Of course, starting on pole means diddly squat if a driver does not cross the finishing line in front of his rivals and as a matter of course we have F1 race odds on the winner of each grand prix throughout the course of the season.
But we also have some other interesting F1 betting odds that don’t just focus on the winner. Speed is the name of the game and so if you like a bet on Formula One, check out our fastest lap market, bearing in mind the winner of the race does not necessarily produce the quickest time over a single circuit.
In 2021, 15 of the quickest laps in 21 of the races came from a non-winning driver so check out the F1 qualifying times before examining the grand prix odds in this market.
There are plenty of other F1 betting options covered by Ladbrokes, such as whether a driver will bag a place on the podium (top three) or finish in the top six or 10.
Some cars are unreliable and drivers are not always guaranteed to finish, so we offer markets on the first retirement or F1 odds on them completing the race.
We all watched in amazement at the events which unfolded in Abu Dhabi and whether a safety car will be deployed is a Formula 1 betting market offered by Ladbrokes.
F1 title odds
The F1 calendar starts in March but even before the fifth red light has been extinguished and the first grand prix is under way, Ladbrokes have F1 championship odds on which driver will finish top of the standings at the end of the season.
The F1 title odds are updated at the end of every race, but it’s not always as exciting as the 2021 season when it went down to the wire.
Although dominated by charismatic drivers stretching every sinew in the race to the finish line, it should not be forgotten that Formula One is also a team sport and as you would expect our site offers F1 odds on all 10 teams in the constructors’ championship.
Mercedes have been the dominant force in the last 10 years or so but Red Bull have them in their crossfire and are the most likely to challenge them in the coming seasons.
Formula One has lost none of its sheen over the years and the Monaco Grand Prix is still regarded as one of the world’s most glamorous events on the sporting calendar.
We love everything to do with the sport and when it comes to Formula 1 betting, Ladbrokes are always in the driving seat.
