To win outright

As with all sporting events, Bet365 offer outright betting for all F1 races and the driver’s championship.

Fastest qualifier

This market relates to which driver will finish qualifying as the fastest and therefore bag pole position.

Podium finish

Betting on a driver to achieve a podium finish basically means for them to finish in the top 3. So whether your selection finishes first or third, either way it will be a winner.

Top 6 finish

Similarly this market relates to backing a driver to finish the race in the top six.

Points finish

A points finish basically means a driver to finish in the top ten. Again this market means your selection can finish any position in the top ten for your bet to be a winner.

Fastest in practice 1

There are two practice sessions at the start of each Grand Prix. With this market you back the driver who you think will finish the first practice session as the fastest.

Fastest lap

With this market you can bet on the driver you think will finish the race with the fastest lap. It’s worth noting this market only refers to the actual race and not practice or qualifying.

Both cars points finish

If you you’re not familiar with Formula 1, each team has two cars/drivers in the race. So this market is for both cars/drivers to achieve a points finish in the race. In other words both cars to finish in the top ten.

Qualifying winning margin

You can get on the winning time margin in qualifying. The typical values are under 0.1 seconds, between 0.1 and 0.25 seconds inclusive and over 0.25 seconds.

Winning car

With the winning car market this is basically which team will win the race. Effectively it gives you two chances of winning the race.

Qualifying winning car

Same as winning car betting but this market relates to qualifying.

Fastest qualifier, fastest lap and race winner

Fancy one driver to be completely dominant over the weekend? Then you can bet on them to be the fastest qualifier, post the fast lap and win the race. With Bet365 it doesn’t let you choose individual drivers, instead gives you a Yes and no option to whether it will happen.

Driver specials

Bet365 offer a number of specials for the top drivers. Markets include to be leader at the end of any lap, to be the first driver to make a pit stop, to retire on the first lap and more.

Combination podium finish

If you fancy a certain two drivers to finish on the podium this is the perfect bet. It doesn’t matter in which order either finish.
