Abu Dhabi Grand Prix Betting Tips & Predictions

Max Verstappen was crowned World Champion weeks ago, so technically he has nothing to play for in the final race of the F1 season.

Yes, he will still want to win, but it doesn’t really matter in the grand scheme of things. On the other hand, it means the world to Lewis Hamilton.

The former World Champion has yet to win a single race this year. He has been close on a couple of occasions, but he will not want to end this campaign without a victory.

I have backed Hamilton in the past couple of races, so I am sticking with him in Abu Dhabi and I am also going for a Mercedes 1-2.

George Russell is the future of Formula One. He moved to Mercedes to further his career and he was rewarded with his first victory last weekend in Brazil.

Russell is currently in fourth position and a top-two finish in Abu Dhabi could see him move into third place if Sergio Perez fails to collect any points.

I am backing Hamilton to win the race with Russell coming second. I am also tipping Russell to bag the fastest lap of the race.

Abu Dhabi Grand Prix Betting Tips & Predictions: Circuit Guide

Yas Marina is one of the newest circuits on the Formula 1 calendar having only debuted back in 2009, but it has already established itself as one of the most popular tracks with drivers thanks to its twists and turns.

There are 21 corners on the 3.45-mile circuit and several drivers have highlighted the fact that every single one of them is unique, but not all reviews have been overly positive. In fact, Kimi Raikkonen once claimed the first few corners were “quite good” before going on to describe the rest of them with a vulgar term that I will leave to your imagination.

Lewis Hamilton is the most successful drivers in this track’s history, having won the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix five times, and his 2019 success made him only the second driver to string together back-to-back wins at this track. Max Verstappen recorded his first win at the circuit in 2020.

Location: Yas Marina Circuit, Yas Island, Abu Dhabi, UAE
Number Of Laps: 55
Lap Length: 3,451 miles
