2018 F1 Drivers Championship: Nobody is Catching Hamilton

Another week, another win for Lewis Hamilton as he is speeding away with the 2018 Formula 1 drivers championship. Hamilton, driving for Mercedes, has won an unbelievable six of the last seven races on the F1 schedule and has -20000 odds to win his fifth F1 drivers championship. 

Vettel is the Only Driver with a Mathematical Chance

Sebastian Vettel remains somewhat in the hunt, 66 points behind Hamilton. After that, the rest of the drivers are all mathematically eliminated. Vettel remains an option to bet at +5000 but I don’t even think his family would place that bet at this point. 

The German would need something drastic and unprecedented to occur over the final four races to catch the Brit. He would essentially need to win outright at least three races while at the same time getting multiple DNFs from Hamilton. While it’s within the realm of possibility, it’s astronomically unlikely. 

Here’s a look at the complete list of drivers championship betting odds after 17 of 21 races:

2018 Formula 1 Drivers Championship
Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes)-20000
Sebastian Vettel (Ferrari)+5000
