While there will not be a title at stake since Jenson Button has already won, those that bet on F1 should be interested since Felipe Massa might be making his return.
F1 betting on Massa at the sports book could get some attention in this race. Massa spent days in a coma after a horrible crash in July. He was not expected to return this F1 betting season but the driver is hoping to race in this season-ending event. He suffered a fractured skull during qualifying at the Hungarian Grand Prix. He spent more than a week in the hospital and needed plastic surgery.
Ferrari has had a rough season but they are hoping to improve next F1 betting season with Massa and new teammate Fernando Alonso. It is expected that Kimi Raikkonen will rejoin McLaren for F1 sports betting action next year.
The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix is set to take place at the Yas Marina Circuit on November 1st. "The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix will definitely be something different," said Yas Marina's promotion and events manager Lisa Crampton. "Our aim is to become a centre of motorsport excellence. We see ourselves coming in as a new benchmark for motorsports, not just in Abu Dhabi but around the world."
The Grand Prix is expected to conclude in the early evening under floodlights, making it what would be the first day-night race in F1 betting. It will also be round counter-clockwise, one of the few F1 betting events to go against the grain.
F1 betting at the sports book should be interesting in this race with the same leading contenders and a few longshots. Button might even be worth a shot in F1 betting since the pressure is off. Rubens Barrichello is always worth considering in F1 betting while Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber will get a look from those who bet on F1 action. Other drivers to consider as you bet on F1 odds in this race are Kimi Raikkonen, Lewis Hamilton, Nico Rosberg, Alsonso, Timo Glock, Jarno Trulli and the aforementioned Massa if he does indeed come back for this F1 betting race.
The top constructors this season in F1 betting have been Brawn-Mercedes and RBR-Renault. The rest of the teams have had disappointing seasons for those that bet on F1 races.
