Viewers at home can also increase their funds while following the race by just placing wagers on some of the odds offered by multiple online sportsbooks. Here are three markets interested bettors could check out:
1 | Betting Specials
On Sky Bet, the odds of both Stoffel Vandoorne of McLaren F1 and Marcus Ericsson of Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 to both finish in points-scoring positions are priced at 25/1. The two have scored points in only seven races combined.
Another special bet has the chance of Red Bull Racing’s Verstappen to win the race and his teammate Daniel Ricciardo to retire was at 18/1. The Red Bull drivers have faced different fates this season, with the latter retiring eight times in 20 races.
2 | Retirement, Classification
Speaking of retired cars, William Hill offers several odds on who would not finish the race and, conversely, who would pass the checkered flag.
The favorite to retire this race is McLaren’s Fernando Alonso, who would actually move away from F1 racing this season, with the 13/8 odds. Brendon Hartley of Scuderia Toro Rosso and Nico Hulkenberg of Renault Sport F1 follow the Spaniard at 2/1 each.
Saying farewell in style!

On the other end of the spectrum, Mercedes AMG-Petronas driver—also crowned World Champion—Lewis Hamilton and Scuderia Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel are favorites to finish the race with the odds of 1/14 each. The cars developed by top-of-the-pack factories in motorsport are reliable as expected, with only one retirement related to engine issue between the two drivers.
3 | Race Winner
On crypto sportsbook 1xBit, Hamilton and Vettel have the same odds of winning at 6/5. In the nine years of Yas Marina on the F1 calendar, the two drivers won three races each. Following them is Mercedes driver and the race winner of last year’s Grand Prix, Valtteri Bottas, at 9/2.
In addition, 1xBit offers the following odds for these drivers: Verstappen, 9/2; Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen, 14/1; and Ricciardo, 16/1.
Avid F1 fans can catch these drivers for one last time this season at Yas Marina for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on November 25, 2018.
