With the 2022 Formula 1 world championship decided, who is the favorite to win it all in 2023? Here is a list of way-too-early odds.

With four races remaining on the 22-race 2022 Formula 1 calendar, the world championship has already been won.

There is a maximum of 112 points still on the table for each driver, and Red Bull’s Max Verstappen owns a 113-point lead over teammate Sergio Perez in second place and a 114-point lead over Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc in third.

Verstappen secured his second consecutive world title with his 12th win of the season, one shy of the single-season record, in the Japanese Grand Prix at Suzuka Circuit.

Still remaining on this year’s schedule are the United States Grand Prix at Circuit of the Americas (Sunday, October 23), the Mexico City Grand Prix at Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez (Sunday, October 30), the Sao Paulo Grand Prix at Interlagos Circuit (Sunday, November 13), and the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix at Yas Marina Circuit (Sunday, November 20).

But with the world championship decided and the constructor title likely to be decided shortly, many are already looking ahead to next year.

Who is the favorite to win the world championship in 2023? Will Verstappen win a third in a row? Will Hamilton win a record-breaking eighth? Or will Formula 1 get just its third new world champion since 2011?

Here are the way-too-early world championship odds for 2023, according to WynnBET.
