Formula 1 heads to Yas Marina for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix and the final race of the 2022 season this weekend.
While we won't have the intensity of a title fight like last season, when Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen arrived at Yas Marina tied, we have something close. Quite amazingly, the fight for second place between Sergio Perez and Charles Leclerc will come down to the wire — and the two are level on points, at 290.
Find out how Perez, Leclerc, and the rest of the grid stack up for the '22 season finale at Yas Marina below with our Abu Dhabi Grand Prix odds, and check out our Abu Dhabi Grand Prix picks for more.

Abu Dhabi Grand Prix favorites
Max Verstappen (-200)
Despite Max Verstappen and Red Bull heading to Sao Paulo with both titles clinched, the Brazilian Grand Prix was one of the more dramatic weekends the team has endured this season. After the controversy surrounding Verstappen and Sergio Perez's final lap in Brazil, Verstappen is favored in Abu Dhabi but one must think the team's focus will be on securing second in the Drivers' Championship for Perez.
Red Bull isn't going to be short on options on race day, with a front-row lockout.
Sergio Perez (+250)
Perez took an early advantage in the fight for second in the Drivers' Championship, as he qualified second on Saturday to join teammate Verstappen on the front row — and, crucially, ahead of Leclerc.
Charles Leclerc (+1,200)
Despite Ferrari looking off the pace during the early parts of the weekend, Charles Leclerc salvaged Saturday with a typically outstanding fast lap. Leclerc managed to get his Ferrari on the second row, starting third, leaving plenty to fight for on Sunday.

Understanding F1 betting odds
The most popular way to bet on Formula 1 odds is by simply picking the winner of a particular race. Other popular F1 betting options include which car/constructor will win and whether or not a particular race car driver will end up on the podium with a Top-3 finish.
F1 race odds usually look like this:
- Sergio Perez +1,400
This means that on a $100 bet, you'll stand to profit $1,400 if Perez wins that particular race. If one driver is especially dominant, you might see a minus sign (-) ahead of that driver's odds like this:
- Max Verstappen -120
This means that you would need to bet $120 to win $100 on Verstappen winning the race.
