Lewis Hamilton odds: What are the best F1 bets on the British superstar?

Lewis Hamilton is going through a mediocre Formula 1 campaign after only managing two podium finishes up until the Canadian Grand Prix. This is certainly not the vintage Hamilton campaign, as the pace of Red Bull and Ferrari has been superior throughout the season.

What are the odds on Lewis Hamilton to win at Silverstone

One can also identify slightly longer Lewis Hamilton odds in many of the markets. As the British GP prepares for its 2022 edition, the top markets for backing Hamilton ahead of this event would be:

Lewis Hamilton to win the British GP @ 10/1 (11.00)

Hamilton has so far endured a difficult 2022 season. He has not picked up in the victories along with Mercedes so far this season. Even though Mercedes are likely to show a much better pace at Silverstone this time around due to aerodynamic upgrades, the advantage is unlikely to be sufficient to get a victory.

Podium finish for Hamilton @ 7/4 (2.75)

Lewis Hamilton has had two podium finishes so far this year. He has also come close to finishing in the podium positions in Australia and Azerbaijan. The odds on Lewis Hamilton to finish on the podium places are at a very attractive price. This can be a good choice considering the improvement that Hamilton has displayed in the Azerbaijani and Canadian GPs.

Hamilton to get a top six finish @ 4/11 (1.36)

After finishing in the top six in five out of the nine races so far this season, Hamilton appears to be in a good position to get a top six finish. Even with the shorter Lewis Hamilton odds for this market, it can be an attractive choice due to the continued reliability problems faced by Ferrari. One can expect Mercedes to get a slight nudge over Ferrari from the British GP onwards.

Hamilton fastest lap @ 40/1 (41.00)

Mercedes have been unable to pick up the fastest lap on any instance so far this season. Ferrari and Red Bull have been substantially dominant on this front with both teams registering four fastest laps each. Even though Hamilton has come close to setting the fastest lap on a handful of occasions this season, this is not a market that has great prices.

All odds are from Bet365. The odds are correct at the time of writing but they are subject to change.

Top Outright Lewis Hamilton Odds

Lewis Hamilton to win the Drivers’ Championship @ 66/1 (67.00)

The odds on Lewis Hamilton to win the Drivers’ Championship in the 2022 season are proving to be a long shot. The seven-time world champion was outclassed with the narrowest of margins by Max Verstappen in the 2021 campaign. However, there appears to be a sizeable change in the 2022 season with Verstappen having a huge lead already. Red Bull have progressed immensely over the last year whereas Mercedes are playing catch-up. Hamilton is almost trailing the leaders may 100 points and it is unlikely that a string of European races will help revive the situation for the Brit. The 37-year-old might have to wait further for an eighth world championship title.

Lewis Hamilton/Mercedes to win the Drivers’/Constructors’ @ 1000/1 (1001.00)

Mercedes are regarding the Constructors’ Championship standings with 188 points compared to Red Bull’s 304 points and Ferrari’s 228 points at the end of the Canadian GP. The performance upgrades that Mercedes are likely to roll out of the European races might have a significant impact on the pace of the car going forward. There is a very good opportunity for Mercedes to leapfrog the Ferrari into the second spot considering the teething problems faced by the Italians throughout the year. However, the likelihood of Hamilton and Mercedes winning the Drivers’ and Constructors’ Championship this season is at a very low probability.
