Is there any way to win more F1 bets in 2019? Using our F1 betting tips below is certainly a great place to start.
Read on to find out more.
Formula 1 betting
F1 is an incredibly exciting sport that captivates audiences from around the world and placing bets on the sport only adds to the entertainment.
But are you tired of losing F1 bets at the bookmakers? If you’re like me and many other punters around the world, you want to win as many F1 bets as possible and beat the bookmakers more often.
Well, in this article we’re going to look at a number of F1 betting tips you can employ right now to increase your chances of winning.
So let’s get straight into our F1 betting tips.
F1 betting tips
Here are four Formula 1 betting tips that you should consider:
- Do your research
- Know your F1 markets
- Take it slowly
- Start with matched betting
Let’s look into each of these in more detail.
Tip #1 – Do your research
First on our list of Formula 1 betting tips is to do your research before placing any bets.
For a lot of punters out there, this may seem like a waste of time. If so, that’s fine but it depends what you want to get from your betting and why you started.
Are you betting just for fun or are you looking to win F1 bets on a more consistent basis?
If it’s the latter, I recommend you research various aspects such as:
- Which races are coming up
- Which teams perform well at certain tracks
- Car performance
- Driving styles of drivers
- Weather conditions
Whilst there are many more areas you can research this will give you somewhere to start.
It’s important to note that no matter how much research you do, anything can happen in F1. A driver can be taken off the track in one moment and his race is over.
However, you’re more likely to win F1 bets in the long run if you do some research beforehand.
Tip #2 – Know your F1 betting markets
Our second Formula 1 betting tip is to know your markets inside out. We’ve listed some of the key F1 betting markets below.
Since F1 is such a popular sport, most bookmakers will have the following markets available to punters:
- Race winner
- Pole position
- Top 3 finish
- Fastest lap
So what do each of these F1 markets mean? Let’s check each of them out in more detail.
The race winner market is pretty self-explanatory. You’re simply betting on the winner of the race.
With this market, expect the odds to be relatively low. F1 is typically a sport dominated by a few leading teams, meaning the likely winners only come from two or three teams.
A good tip is to wait until practice and qualifying have taken place before placing any race winner bets. It’s very unlikely for a driver to win starting outside the top 6 qualifying positions unless there’s some drama in the race.
Therefore, I’d wait until qualifying has finished and you know the starting grid.
Qualifying in F1 has always been incredibly exciting and sets the tone for the race on Sunday. Betting on pole positions is also great fun, especially when there are a few drivers in with a shot.
It’s generally quite easy to predict pole position as it’s based on pure performance. In 2019, Mercedes and Ferrari have taken all but one pole position so far. That just goes to show its predictability.
The following drivers are the ones you should consider when betting on the pole position market in 2019:
- Lewis Hamilton
- Valtteri Bottas
- Charles Leclerc
- Sebastian Vettel
Overall the pole position market is a great option for those who can’t wait until race day.
Top 3 finish
Another popular F1 betting market is the top 3 finish. Again this is relatively straightforward. You’re betting on the driver to finish on the podium (top 3 places).
Unless you’re betting on an outsider, the odds for the top drivers will be less than the race winner market.
For an outsider to finish on the podium, it takes some excitement during the race. However, these bets are worth considering if the weather looks to be wet.
The fastest lap is quite an exciting F1 betting market. F1 organisers recently brought in a new feature for fastest laps during a race. Drivers now gain an extra world championship point for the fastest lap of a race meaning more drivers are pushing for the best time.
That also makes for great betting on the fastest lap market. The odds for this market will be more lucrative as fastest laps may come from any driver in the top 10, depending on the situation of the race.
Whilst other bookmakers may have more Formula 1 markets available, the markets above should be a great place to start.
Tip #3 – Take it slowly
As with anything in betting, it’s important to take your time. This is especially the case if you’re just getting started with F1 betting in 2019.
Don’t bet your house on anything…
Maybe a bit extreme, but you get the picture. We love gambling but it’s vital you’re responsible in your betting strategy.
Start off small and take your time. Once you get the hang of certain betting strategies and placing bets you may want to increase your stakes if your bankroll allows for this.
Only ever bet what you can afford to lose.
Tip #4 – Use matched betting
Last but not least on our list of Formula 1 betting tips, you should consider starting matched betting.
For any beginners out there, you may not know what matched betting is so here’s a short introduction.
Matched betting is a method of making money from bookmakers’ promotions and free bets. This process is risk-free as it utilises a method called back and lay betting.
Thousands of punters already use this strategy to make up to £1000 per month so its popularity speaks for itself.

F1 betting tips 2019
The 2019 season is all but settled with Lewis Hamilton looking like he’ll win a 6th world title. At the time of writing, Mercedes have already won the constructors title for a record sixth consecutive time.
The remaining races in Mexico, the US, Brazil and Abu Dhabi will be very exciting as teams look to finish the season off in style.
That’s it for our Formula One betting tips, let’s look at some predictions for the 2020 season.
Formula 1 betting predictions for 2020
With the 2019 season almost over, let’s look ahead to the 2020 season that kicks off in late February.
With very little changing in terms of regulations, I predict similar teams will be at the front. Expect Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull fighting at the front end of the grid.
The midfield battle is really where the excitement ramps up. Whether McLaren remains ahead of Renault and Torro Rosso is the big question.
That’s all to look forward to next year.
