How Formula 1 Works
The Formula 1 season, which runs from March 5 to November 26 in 2023 and consists of 23 races all of which are staged on a Sunday. If you are in the UK some races may be live at odd times such as Australia or USA.
Beforehand there are two practice sessions on the Friday, a third practice session on Saturday followed by a qualifying session later or sprint race that day. This completes a ‘Formula 1 weekend’.
The Formula 1 Drivers Championship, F1 betting’s ongoing ante-post betting market, is decided by points drivers acquire at each race. The winner receives 25 world championship points, the runner-up 18, third gets 15, fourth 12 and this continues down to tenth where a single point is awarded.
In addition to the Drivers & Constructors Championships there are Formula 1 betting opportunities on the outcome of practice sessions, qualifying sessions and a host of Formula 1 odds on race markets and stats markets such as the number of race finishers.

Formula 1 Betting FAQs
What is the best type of F1 bet?
The markets on the race winner is rarely anything other than accurate but there is a ‘horses for courses’ concept in Formula 1 which means markets such as ‘Fastest Lap’ is often incorrectly priced-up on recent results meaning this market often features some good value F1 betting odds.
When is the best time to place Formula 1 bets?
Most Formula 1 tipsters who do a lot of research on the sport will tell you the best time to place your bets is on the Tuesday before race weekend when the Formula 1 betting odds are first advertised and often feature mistakes and discrepancies which can be exploited.
What’s the best Formula 1 betting advice?
Definitely subscribe to all drivers and Formula 1 team’s Twitter feed which often helps you get the latest F1 news and you can often act on it before online bookmakers get time to react to things - such as a car which is set to start a race with a grid penalty.
Should you play race markets each-way?
Following qualifying there is often an odds-on favourite in the race win market and that leads bookmakers to only offer places 1-2 as part of their each-way terms. Therefore, do play Formula 1 betting markets each-way but only at the start of a race weekend when positions 1-2-3 are paid out as winners.
