Literally impossible to bet on something like this without knowing how each team is going to deal with new regulations.

Almost any of these drivers can win championship if a team finds a loophole. Like Brawn's double diffuser.

The car is more important than the driver.

While you may be correct... there is no way in hell I'd put any money on any of the bottom six winning the WDC.

So if you bet $100 on every single driver you would only lose 50%+ on 3 of the drivers?

Not certain I follow your question but if $100 were placed on Hamilton and he became WDC, the bettor would win $100...if $100 were bet on Mazepin and he became WDC, that bettor would win $100,000.

Sorry, my question is why wouldn't you just bet on $100 on each person? Most you would lose would be $1,900 if say Hamilton won. $1775 if Verstappen wins, $1500 if Russell and so on. Once you hit Sainz you start making over your $2000 wager. So only 4 do you lose money...if they lose. Any other 16 drivers and you win. Tempting to just blow the money and do it lol

We should come back to this when the season is over and see how we would have done.

Hmmm it's really only out of Lewis (should he choose to compete), Max or George for the 2022 WDC, the rest are unfortunately just 'also-rans'
