Odds as of August 8th at DraftKings Sportsbook.

  • [Sep 19]: Books are no longer offering F1 Drivers’ Championship Futures, as Max Verstappen now owns a 126-point lead on second-place Charles Leclerc in the standings with only six races remaining.
  • [Jul 11]: After missing the podium at the British GP and finishing second in Austria, Verstappen’s Drivers Championship odds have dropped slightly, moving form -600 to -400.
  • [Jun 13]: Despite earning his fourth pole in a row, Charles Leclerc continues to fade, moving to +350 after suffering from engine failure in Azerbaijan.
  • [May 9]: With his third win of the season, Max Verstappen is again the sole favorite to capture this season’s Drivers’ Championship, with odds now at -150.
  • [Apr 25]: At two wins apiece, Leclerc and Verstappen are now getting the same odds to win the F1 Championship, despite Leclerc holding a 27-point lead in the standings.
  • [Apr 11]: Following his second win of the season, Charles Leclerc is again the favorite to win the F1 Drivers Championship, as his odds move past last week’s winner Verstappen to -175.
  • [Mar 28]: Though we’re still only two races into the new season, Lewis Hamilton has already seen his title odds drop from +155 to +1000, following his 10th place finish in Saudi Arabia.
  • [Mar 23]: Charles Leclerc was the first winner of the 2022 F1 season. Interesting to see Verstappen still favored over Hamilton despite not finishing. Leclerc has a small edge over Verstappen in the updated Drivers Championship odds.
  • [Mar 15]: With less than a week before the first race of the season, Lewis Hamilton sits as favorite to regain the title he lost to Max Verstappen in 2021.
