F1 is the pinnacle of global motor racing. The competition is intense as the world’s most gifted drivers steer the world’s most technically advanced cars around the most spectacular F1 tracks at breath-taking speed. Each of them wants to be the first to pass under the checkered flag, but there can only be one! Supporting the drivers are talented pit crews whose expert skills can make all the difference between victory and defeat. The immense prizes at stake heighten the atmosphere of suspense as the cars go hurtling round the track. All of this makes F1 Grand Prix one of the best markets for mobile online betting at Spin Sports.
F1 championship racing has captivated racing fans worldwide ever since 1950. The sport takes its name from the championship rules. These govern how manufacturers have to develop their cars in order to compete. Basically “Formula 1” cars are all built according to the same set of standards. But not all F1 cars are the same. There are 11 different F1 teams, each with a budget of as much $250 million to build the lightest, fastest, most powerful racing cars in the world. And what speeds they can reach! The official F1 speed record is 231.4mph, set by Valtteri Bottas in the 2016 Mexican Grand Prix. The unofficial record of 256.753 mph made F1 news back in 2006, when team Honda took their car to the Mojave Desert.
The current Formula 1 calender comprises 23 Grand Prix races, each in a different country, contested by 22 drivers from 11 teams. They all have their eyes on the same goal: The money and the prestige of winning the Drivers’ and Constructors’ Championships. To enter a race, drivers must enter 3 free practice sessions and achieve a qualifying speed. These F1 qualifying sessions also determine what positions drivers will occupy in the starting line-up. Then it’s time for the big event. Drivers must use every ounce of skill as they contest for points that go toward overall championship standings: 25 points for a winner, 18 points for second place, 15 points for third, and a further points distribution for lower-ranking finishers up to 10th place. Drivers below that receive no points. The driver with the most points at the end of the season is crowned with the Formula One World Drivers’ Championship. Constructors’ Championship points are calculated by adding points scored in all races by any driver for a specific constructor.
Formula 1 mobile online betting is a tremendous amount of fun because so many different things can happen. Instead two teams or individual contestants, there are 22 cars on the grid, making for endless possibilities. The two biggest markets for Formula 1 bets online are Drivers’ Championship winner (who will get the most points in a season?) and Constructors’ Championship winner (which team will get the most points in a season?). Other popular betting markets include race winner, fastest lap in the race, podium finish (in the top three), points finish (in the top 10), first retirement in a race and fastest driver in practice.
When it comes to placing Formula 1 bets online, some basic information can help to inform your betting decisions. For instance, where is the race taking place? Every F1 championship circuit provides a different challenge. Some favor speed, others (like the twisty Monaco street circuit) favor skill. To see how well a driver or team handles the conditions of a specific circuit, watching the F1 qualifying sessions. Before a race starts, take a look at the line-up – a driver’s starting position is critically important if you’re betting on a race winner. Overall, keep up to date with F1 results to see how drivers and teams are performing this season. Have fun!
