In each of the last four championship victories, Hamilton has secured the title prior to the final race of the season, doing so in race 14 of 17 in 2020.

The betting odds for Formula 1 2021 have Hamilton as the huge favourite with Bet365.
Hamilton broke Michael Schumacher’s all-time record of 91 race wins in Portugal last year and will be aiming to extend his record throughout the 2021 campaign. So, there is every reason to believe the 2021 Formula 1 championship is Hamilton’s to lose.
We continue our Formula One 2021 season preview below as we take a look at the other 2021 Formula One contenders and 2021 F1 outsiders.
2. 2021 Formula 1 Contenders
Assessing the other Formula 1 2021 favourites is difficult as Hamilton is such as clear favourite but the one serious contender to his crown could be Max Verstappen. Red Bull have often been tipped to overcome Mercedes in recent years and it has not happened but could that be about to change in 2021?
Our Formula 1 tips and predictions believe Verstappen could be the closest contender to Hamilton this season. The Dutchman has 10 F1 wins to his name and finished third in 2020 with 214 points. Verstappen has shown signs of improvement throughout his Formula One career and the arrival of Sergio Perez could improve his chances. There is no doubt Verstappen had a lot of misfortune and without that he could easily have finished in second place. Perez could be key to a Verstappen title challenge this season and it will be interesting to see how the partnership develops.
The Formula One odds have Verstappen as one of the main contenders with Unibet to win the 2021 Formula One world championship.
Some of the other drivers who will believe they have what it takes to be crowned 2021 Formula One champion include Valtteri Bottas and Sergio Perez, both prices as contenders with William Hill. Continue below for more betting predictions for Formula One 2021.
