The final race of the 2022 Formula 1 season will take place at the Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi. The Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix will serve as Sebastian Vettel’s farewell race, as he will be retiring from the sport after winning four world championships.
The 53-time winner of a grand prix, who is now 35 years old and has three victories to his name in the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, has announced that he will retire from the sport at the end of the current season. The Aston Martin driver is currently 11th in the standings for the 2022 Formula One season, but he would be thrilled to end his Formula One career with a finish inside the points. The green flag is scheduled to drop at 8:00 a.m. Eastern Standard Time on Sunday.
Even though Max Verstappen has already clinched the championship and established a new all-time record for the number of grand prix wins in a season (14), Caesars Sportsbook views him as the favorite to win the 2022 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix and gives him odds of -110 to do so. He will undoubtedly strive for a historic 15th win.
Last week, George Russell won for Mercedes for the first time this season. This week, he is listed as the favorite to win the Formula One race at 11-2, but his teammate Lewis Hamilton is listed as the second favorite at 11-4.

It has a long history of success in motorsports, including correctly predicting seven winners during the 2021 NASCAR season. Additionally, its projected leaderboards have forecasted winners across a variety of racing formats.
When it comes to choosing which Formula 1 race events will take place starting in 2021, the model has been performing exceptionally well. It correctly predicted both of Leclerc’s victories in 2022, and at the Mexican Grand Prix in 2021, the model was strongly supporting Verstappen as its top pick for the race. The end result was that Verstappen completely dominated the competition and sprinted away with an unexpected victory.
After that, the model correctly predicted that Verstappen would win the Rolex Emilia Romagna GP in April. After that, it correctly predicted that Verstappen would win again in Belgium, the Netherlands, Japan, the United States, and Mexico. Additionally, he correctly predicted Leclerc’s podium finish in Austin, which resulted in a payout of +190. Those who followed the model’s recommendations on those plays have seen enormous returns.

Top 2022 Formula 1 Abu Dhabi GP predictions
An enormous surprise is that the model is giving up on Sergio Perez, despite the fact that he is currently in a fight for second place in the standings and is listed as 12-1 in the odds for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
The driver for Red Bull Racing, who is 32 years old, is tied with Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc for second place in the standings for the 2022 Formula One season. Both drivers have exactly 290 points. Both drivers will be eager to prove that they are the best of the rest, especially considering that Verstappen has been running circles around the competition so far this season.
However, Perez has been extremely inconsistent as of late, failing to finish on the podium in eight of his last 13 races, the most recent of which was a very disappointing seventh-place finish in Brazil last week. In his previous season, he finished 15th in the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
The year before that, he retired from the race and has never finished on the podium in any of his 11 attempts at Yas Marina. According to the model’s projections, he will have another poor performance and will not finish in the top five. Instead, Leclerc will finish ahead of him and will take the runner-up spot for the season. Look at this page to find out who the model supports.
