F1 2020 Season Betting Picks

Formula 1 betting season is here as the Australian Open kicks things off this weekend. No surprises here, Lewis Hamilton is an overwhelming favourite to win both that and the world championship. Hamilton is in pursuit of history: he can tie Michael Schumacher with seven world titles and further cement his legacy as the greatest F1 driver of his era. Let’s look at the Formula 1 betting predictions for 2020.

  • Max Verstappen – 6.00
  • Charles Leclerc – 6.50
  • Valtteri Bottas – 9.00
  • Sebastian Vettel – 11.00

No surprises here, Lewis Hamilton is an overwhelming favourite to win both that and the world championship. Hamilton is in pursuit of history: he can tie Michael Schumacher with seven world titles and further cement his legacy as the greatest F1 driver of his era. 

F1 2020 fast stats:

  • Hamilton has won the last two championships by at least 87 points, the widest margin since Sebastian Vettel’s 155 in 2013
  • Hamilton has won the championship in five of the last six seasons
  • Mercedes has been the winning manufacturer in the last six seasons
  • Vettel has finished second overall in three of the last five seasons
  • Only three drivers have won four consecutive championships: Schumacher, Vettel, and Juan Manuel Fangio

Let’s look at the Formula 1 betting predictions for 2020.

F1 2020 driver predictions: Hamilton runs away yet again

At 1.57, it’s a foregone conclusion that Hamilton is going to win per conventional F1 2020 driver predictions. He’s in a league of his own like MotoGP’s Marc Marquez. There will two new Grand Prix events: a new track in Vietnam and the revival of the Dutch circuit. Outside of the Brit, how do the other contenders look:

Max Verstappen – 6.00

The Belgian-Dutch wunderkind was the youngest driver to compete in Formula 1 at just 17 back in 2015. He finished third in 2019 and has eight total wins in 102 entries. His odds rely more on his promise than practicality as he is a distant-second in every sense.

Charles Leclerc – 6.50

Another prodigy, Leclerc is Ferrari’s “next big thing”. He joined Ferrari in 2019 and didn’t disappoint recording seven pole positions and winning two races while finishing fourth overall. At just 22, Leclerc has plenty of room to grow and if you want dibs on his breakout season, it wouldn’t hurt to jump in now.

Valtteri Bottas – 9.00

Mercedes’s “other driver” is a legitimate championship threat himself. Bottas has finished on the podium in two of the last three seasons including being last year’s runner-up. It’s a behemoth-sized shadow he’s under but if Hamilton “slips”, he’ll be among the few to take that crown. He could be a nice hedge for Hamilton backers.

Sebastian Vettel – 11.00

Last but not least is Vettel, who became just the second driver to win four consecutive championships in this modern era. Despite being consistently thwarted by Mercedes, he remains a realistic championship bet. Ferrari backers could make him their 1B to Leclerc’s 1A. 

Formula 1 betting predictions 2020: quick props 

Formula 1 betting predictions like these are known as “outrights” and are a form of prop bet, as a “futures”. It isn’t the only one that’s hot right now. Here are a few other props you can check out:

2020 F1 Constructors Championship

  • Mercedes – 1.35
  • Ferrari – 4.33
  • Red Bull – 5.50

Don’t stray past the big three here. Mercedes is the chalk play but feel free to roll the dice on Ferrari as either a hedge or a lottery play.

Formula E Drivers Championship 2020

  • Antonio Felix da Costa – 3.25
  • Alexander Sims – 7.00
  • Mitch Evans – 7.00

A bit wider open than F1, it still just comes down to these three. If you’re feeling adventurous, throw a bone for Sims or Evans. But side with da Costa and DS Techeetah who are set to regain the championship.
