Formula 1 Betting - 2012/13 Season

Formula 1

The 2012 Formula 1 is currently in it's mid season break, starting again with the Belgian Grand Prix on September 2nd. With only 9 races left to decided the winners, both the Drivers and Constructers Championships are still wide open.

An upsurge in great results for smaller teams has shaken things up and seen F1 fans use bookies betting offers on some less high profile teams competing in races, such as Sauber or Force India.

The 2012 Formula 1 season has been one of the most entertaining and unpredictable in history.

As the season has progressed the traditionally competitive larger teams have risen to the top of the standings although there've been some exciting and surprising results from smaller teams.

In the first 7 races of the Formula 1 season we saw 7 different winners, making it difficult for online bookies to predict who will win each race in the 2012/13 F1 season.

Ferrari's Spanish driver Fernando Alonso has risen to the top of the Drivers Championship with a 40-point lead after 11 races due to his three race victories and consistent high points finishes.

2011 World Champion Sebastian Vettel is currently in 3rd place in the Drivers Championship, behind Mark Webber and both have a really good chance of victory.

Formula 1 Betting Offers & Odds

Online bookies have been offering decent odds, free bets and special F1 betting offers on the chances of British driver Lewis Hamilton winning the World Championship.

Hamilton's chances of regaining the world title he first won in 2008 were increased with a victory in Hungary before the mid-season break. With the second half of the season still to go, McLaren-Mercedes driver Hamilton now lies 47 points behind Alonso in the Drivers Championship.

Formula 1 fans looking for a free sports bet to place on the qualifying stages of each Grand Prix have largely backed McLaren-Mercedes as the fastest qualifying team.

Red Bull-Renault's controversial suspension gave the team an unlawful advantage between qualifying and race days by allowing the team to alter suspension heights by hand.

Following the discovery of the rule breach Red Bull's qualifying performance may suffer, making the teams results difficult to predict and opening up the chances of bookies offering better odds.

Special F1 Offers

Some online bookies offer special betting offers in advance of the 2nd half of the season.

You'll find free bets for the time margins achieved by each driver in qualifying and on the winner of the Driver's Championship. If you're a new customer you'll also have the added bonus of the free bet offers that bookies offer giving you more free money to place your bet with.

Bookies are also offering great odds and betting offers on the winner of each of the remaining 9 races and already Lewis Hamilton is favourite with some bookies to win the Belgian Grand Prix.

Male the most of your free bets and betting offers to place your bets on the first driver and team to retire in each race, who records the fastest lap each race and also on the improving Ferrari helping Alonso win this seasons title.

There has also been a lot of talk around Lotus and their Finnish driver Kimi Raikkonen winning a forthcoming race to challenge the World Championship.

Lotus could be the surprise team in the 2nd half of the 2012/13 Formula 1 season and you'll get great odds and the best free bets from the UK's best bookies right now.

Regulations introduced for the 2012 season have levelled the playing field between teams and regulations proposed for the 2013 season will reduce these gaps even further.

Proposed changes to Formula 1 engines include a reduction to 1.6 litre engines and reduced fuel consumption which could seriously affect the outcome of the Championship.

Aerodynamic changes include alterations to the underside of the cars, which could prove expensive and reduce the budgets available over the remainder of the 2012 season.

Testing and designs for next season may leave traditionally powerful teams Red Bull, Ferrari, McLaren and the competitive Lotus at the top of the race standings and popular for the best odds and free bet offers from bookies.

Formula 1 is in the middle of one of its most exciting and challenging seasons and we're expecting more surprises as the 2nd half starts with the Belgian Grand Prix.
