Formula 1 champion prediction: who will win the title of best F1 driver?

Formula 1 Winner Prediction

A 3rd world champion title! While we thought we would see close championships since the end of Mercedes' dominion, team Red Bull and Max Verstappen clearly had other plans in mind for the world's most famous automobile championship. Without a real competitor last year, Verstappen was simply untouchable as he went on to win almost every Grand Prix in what was statistically the most dominant season in F1 history. The 25-year-old and his Red Bull team won an incredible 19 of 22 races (86.3%). With such a large lead in points over his runner-up, he was quickly crowned with his third championship well before the end of the season.

Unsurprisingly, Verstappen is the overwhelming favorite heading into the new season as he looks to secure what would be a fourth straight world champion title. Should he achieve the feat, the Flying Dutchman would join the likes of Schumacher, Fangio, Vettel and Hamilton as the only drivers in F1 history to have won four straight titles. Can he pull it off? We think so, as we have Verstappen as our pick to win the 2024 championship. It's hard to see how anybody else in the the field will stop the Dutchman who appears to be at the absolute peak of his powers after the dominance of the 2023 season. Lewis Hamilton could be a popular pick by many, but with this being his last season with Mercedes before joining Ferrari, we don't see this being his year.

With six races already in the books, Verstappen has raced out to the early lead. The defending Formula 1 World Champion has taken part in five events (he retired early from Australia GP), winning four and making the podium in all five. This has the dominant 26-year-old already with a healthy lead over Red Bull teammate Sergio Perez, whom he leads with 136 points to 103. The next highest points-getter is Ferrari's Charles Leclerc who sits third with 98 points.

Our Formula 1 prediction: Max Verstappen to be world champion!

Prediction on the World Champion constructor: which will be the best F1 team?

Best Formula 1 team prediction

What would a driver do without a good, even excellent car? It's not just the battle on the track that exists in Formula 1. That of the manufacturers is also intense all year round, because Formula 1 is a motorsport where the goal remains to build the best single-seater possible in order to aim the heights of a world championship. Currently, Red Bull is the cream of the crop when it comes to manufacturers and is clearly on a level all their own. Behind them, there are a contingent of other teams such as Ferrari, Mercedes, McLaren and Aston Martin, befor moving to the middle / end of the pack with Alpine, Williams or even Haas.

In any case, as long as the teams do not share their best ideas (which is not likely to happen!) or the regulations are to everyone's advantage, the difference in quality should be present for some time! In the meantime, we obviously suggest you bet on Red Bull.

It's looking like Red Bull's Constructors' Championship to lose as Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez has given the Austrian energy drink brand a big lead atop the standings. After six events, Red Bull's 239 points sees them leading second-place Ferrari, who come in with 187 points, and McLaren who third with 124 points. Our prediction for the best Formula 1 manufacturer: Red Bull world manufacturer champion!

  • Red Bull - 1.05
  • Ferrari - 10.00
  • McLaren - 41.00
  • Mercedes - 501.00
  • Aston Martin - 2001.00
  • Visa Cash App RB - 4501.00

Formula 1 Grand Prix calendar

2024 Formula 1

The announcement of the Formula 1 calendar is one of the important dates to tick off. Even if most observers are familiar with the destinations, it is always useful to know when the first GP of the season will be in Bahrain, the new Grand Prix meeting in Las Vegas or the Silverstone classic. The season is divided into two parts: from March to July, with 13 races on the programme, and from late August to early December, when the championship concludes with 10 races. Once the schedule has been revealed, it's a good idea for punters to get an idea of who will win each race in preparation for D-Day, even if the dynamics of the teams will have to be taken into account. Here are the races for the 2024 campaign:

Beginner punters - how does Formula 1 work?

How Formula 1 works

Formula 1 is the most closely followed motorsport championship in the world, and one of the most popular in sports betting today. It comprises 20 drivers for 10 teams, with a total of 24 races scheduled between March and early December. From the Middle East to the Americas, via Europe and Asia, the teams compete almost every weekend in free practice, sprint races, qualifying and the famous Sunday GP. At the end of a long season, a points classification will define the grand champion, and here's how the points are distributed in the top 10 after each race:

  • 1st - 25 points 
  • 2nd - 18 points 
  • 3rd - 15 points 
  • 4th - 12 points 
  • 5th - 10 points 
  • 6th - 8 points 
  • 7th - 6 points
  • 8th - 4 points 
  • 9th - 2 points 
  • 10th - 1 point 

The driver with the most points at the end of the season becomes world champion before handing over his title a few months later. During the off-season, there can be movement between teams with driver changes, which is one of F1 fans' favorite times of year. Before the season resumes, you can also take part in the traditional winter tests, which allow you to see if the teams are on the right track... or not!

How to make good Formula 1 predictions?

Formula 1 predictions

Placing  a Formula 1 prediction requires a certain knowledge of the championship, but that's not all! Sportytrader has been working with F1 specialists for several years and has some valuable tips on how to make the right predictions: 

  • Take into account the latest results
  • Know the starting grid after qualifying
  • Study the specific characteristics of the circuit
  • Consult the history of recent winners of the Grand Prix in question
  • Take into account the dynamics of the driver and the condition of the car

Take into account the latest results

Formula 1 Sports Betting Tips

The 2023 season was the perfect example of what you needed to do to get your predictions right. Max Verstappen was dominant since the start of the championship, leaving his rivals little chance thanks to his perfect driving style and a car without any flaws. It's simple: Red Bull won nearly every Grand Prix (19 of 22) last year and the Dutch driver reigns supreme in the paddock. Taking a look at the current dynamics of the team, it was then perfectly logical to place the bet of Max Verstappen to win the race.

It was then up to you to determine if the odds posted presented any value in backing another winner, such as Lewis Hamilton. However, the bookmakers also allow you to bet on a place on the podium, in the top 10 or which driver will finish ahead of his team-mate at the end of the race, so you have several options for your bet!

Find out the starting grid after qualifying 

Grand Prix weekend. During free practice on Friday, you see Williams or Alfa Romeo performing well. Our experts' number 1 tip: don't rush! You need to wait for the results of qualifying before making your F1 prediction, as the standings are often different between those observed during practice and  those on Saturday afternoon. To minimize the risk of error, we recommend that you follow Q1, Q2 and then Q3 to find out the starting grid for the following day's race! 

Study the specifics of the circuit

Formula 1 Prediction Tips

For 2024 season, there are 24 circuits to choose from. Drivers need to study each track to perfection in order to achieve the best possible performance. A single-seater will perform better in Monaco, where there are many corners and the speed is lower, than in Baku, the fastest urban track in the world with peak speeds of up to 360 km/h. As you can see, it's important to study the circuit scheduled for the weekend to find out who the winner will be.

View the history of the last winners of the GP in question 

Lewis Hamilton: 7 times winner of Silverstone between 2014 and 2021 (2018 - Vettel) or Max Verstappen: 5 times winner of the Austrian GP between 2018 and 2023...

As you can see from some of the circuits, some drivers manage to perform better as the years go by, which can influence your F1 prediction. Of course, a good car can change the face of a Grand Prix, but a driver who knows the track perfectly, especially when he's on home turf, can help him finish ahead again at the end of the race!

Take into account the driver's dynamics and the condition of the car

Formula 1 Prediction Guide

The situation is similar in every other sport in the world. A confident driver in an excellent single-seater can achieve great things at a Grand Prix. If he puts in several good performances in a row, as Lando Norris did in the summer of 2023, the end result should be positive (podium or victory). However, it's not all about the car. For example, Alexander Albon, who drives a Williams, a mid-to-late table team, is accumulating good results at the moment thanks to strategies that work and a driving style marked by greater experience. If all these factors are taken into account, your ticket could be validated on Sunday afternoon.

What not to do for your Formula 1 predictions

In order to be successful with your Formula 1 predictions, certain attitudes or behaviours should be avoided. It's important to keep them in mind:

  • Don't systematically bet on your favorite driver 
  • Make a bet before knowing the positions on the starting grid
  • Betting without knowing the dynamics of the team on a circuit 
  • Not knowing the hierarchy of drivers within a team 
  • Forgetting a driver's track record 
  • Wanting to make up for losing a bet during qualifying 
  • Putting money on the lowest odds for no reason

Don't forget, it's very important to think about putting these aspects aside before betting with online operators. This could protect you from losses that could largely have been avoided. The word of experts and experienced punters.
