The 2017 season for Formula 1 will be the 68th for the highest level of open-wheel racing, governed by the Federation Internationale de l'Autombile as the first year was governed in 1950. There are 21 events, or Grands Prix, slated to happen in 2017, starting in Australia and ending in Abu Dhabi, and it is a straight system in regards to who wins the championship at the end of the season: the most points at the end of 21 Grands Prix win. Formua 1 is known to have the fastest road-course cars in the entire world and it costs around $120 million just to run a mid-tier team as Formula 1 is heavily dependent on technology. The cars can go as high as 380 km/h (240 mph).

How To Bet On The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix
For betting on the F1, visit the auto racing section at BetDSI and find the F1 race that’s next on the schedule. There you’ll that the majority of the drivers will have positive signs in front of their odds. For example, you could see a driver with odds of +900, so this means you would have to bet $100 to win $900 on that driver. You could see an occasional driver with a negative sign by their odds, so a number like -180, which means you wager $180 to win $100 on that driver.
Remember that the driver with the smallest number on the board is the favorite for the event – that includes numbers that go into negatives. As for the positives, the bigger the numbers grow bigger, those drivers are bigger and bigger underdogs.

About The 2017 Tracks
Each Grand Prix takes place at a different track and Formula 1 goes all over the world. There are two Grands Prix in North America (Canada, the United States); one in Australia; four in Asia (Japan, China, Singapore and Malaysia); one in Mexico; one in Brazil; two in the Middle East (Bahrain and Abu Dhabi); and the rest are scattered through Europe. All of the tracks are road-course tracks, meaning drivers turn left and right, and all the tracks are of varying degrees of difficulty and length.
Germany's Nico Rosberg won his first Formula 1 title, holding off Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton of the United Kingdom by five points. Australia's Daniel Ricciardo, Germany's Sebastian Vettel and Max Verstappen of the Netherlands rounded out the top five, but they were well back of Rosberg and Hamilton, who combined to win 19 of the 21 races on the season as Verstappen won in Spain when both Rosberg and Hamilton had to retire, and Ricciardo won in Malaysia (in which Hamilton retired). Malaysia was probably the difference-maker as Hamilton bowed out of that race, while Rosberg finished third. Rosberg and Hamilton finished first and second in some order in eight races, including the last four (all won by Hamilton).
Michael Schumacher of Germany still leads the way with seven titles, while Juan Manuel Fangio of Argentina is next with five. France's Alain Prost won four championships, along with Vettel, while Australia's Jack Brabham, the United Kingdom duo of Hamilton and Jackie Stewart, Niki Lauda of Austria, and the Brazilian duo of Nelson Piquet and Ayrton Senna all have three.
There are some drivers that can catch up to the Mercedes duo, such as Ricciardo and Vettel. However, unless their teams make some serious gains on Mercedes, it will be an uphill climb for them, or anyone else. Take your pick between Hamilton and Rosberg; Hamilton will likely be a slight favorite.
