Formula 1 Betting Odds
If you’re looking for a sport that promises fast-paced action, drama, beauty and entertainment all in one, then you can’t get better than Formula 1 racing. Considered the pinnacle of motorsports, Formula 1 features world’s best single-seat drivers in the most technologically-advanced cars, racing on circuits in some of the world’s most scenic venues.
Formula 1 is sanctioned by the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA) and owned by the Formula One Group. The Formula 1 season consists of a series of races, known as Grand Prix, which are competed worldwide on purpose-built circuits and public roads.
The Formula 1 World Drivers' Championship (WDC) is awarded to the most successful Formula 1 racing car driver over a season, as determined by a points system based on individual Grand Prix results. This has been considered the premier racing series since its debut season in 1950, which was won by Giuseppe Farina. The first driver to win multiple Championships was Alberto Ascari, in 1952 and 1953.
Since its start, 33 different drivers have won the Championship, with German racer, Michael Schumacher, holding the record for most titles, at seven. He also holds the record for most consecutive Drivers' Championships, winning five from 2000 to 2004. The United Kingdom has produced the most Champions overall (10), with Brazil, Germany and Finland next with three each.
