Hamilton hits with SHOCK F1 title odds blow for 2024

Hamilton hits with SHOCK F1 title odds blow for 2024

Lewis Hamilton's reputation has taken another hit in the build-up to the 2024 F1 season, falling behind another rival in the odds for the championship.

Hamilton finished best of the rest behind the Red Bulls of Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez in 2023, but oddsmakers have now hinted that he's no longer considered the most likely man to deprive Verstappen of another title.

While the seven-time world champion has not won a race for over two seasons now, he is still considered the chief rival to Verstappen by many fans.

Yet in the latest odds released by OLBG, Hamilton is ranked only third favourite to win the world championship with odds as far out as 11/1 (+1100).

New British star in town

Instead, the favourite behind Verstappen, who is priced at an absurd 1/4 (-400), is Hamilton's British compatriot Lando Norris.

The McLaren star has yet to win a race but was a regular podium challenger in the second half of the 2023 season as the Woking outfit enjoyed a surge up the grid following hugely successful mid-term upgrades.

Norris though is also only considered an outside shout at best at 13/2 (+650)

Rounding out the top five are Norris's McLaren team-mate Oscar Piastri at 20/1 (+2000), with Charles Leclerc also given the same odds as the lead Ferrari favourite.

The new Formula 1 campaign gets underway on March 2 with the Bahrain Grand Prix with a record 24-race season penned in the calendar.
