F1 Predictions for This Week 48 — Abu Dhabi Grand Prix
In case you haven’t been following, the 2023 F1 Grand Prix race schedule wrapped up on the weekend with the Abu Dhabi GP. (And there were no surprises if you read our predictions. Max Verstappen came in first, closely followed by Charles LeClerc — just as predicted.)
So in place of our usual F1 predictions, this week we’ll bring you a quick sneak peak of what’s coming up in our 2024 F1 Grand Prix race predictions. But first, for those who missed it, here are the final standing at the conclusion of this year’s racing.

F1 Grand Prix Constructors’ Championship — Final Standings
Much like the Drivers’ Championship, there wasn’t much of a contest for first position in the Constructors’ Championship, with Red Bull leading the field on the back of Verstappen’s dominating performance. Below that, however, the fight was a little closer. Here’s how things stood when the dust settled.

2024 F1 Odds & Predictions Sneak Peak
While our 2024 F1 Odds & Predictions aren’t out yet, there are a few things we can already reveal about the upcoming season.
Here’s a quick look at what we know so far:
- Defending Champ: Max Verstappen — who will be racing for Red Bull Racing-Honda RBPT — will be coming in as the defending World Drivers’ Champion.
- Hot Favorite: With his already-stellar performance over the last few years culminating in a dominating 2023 F1 GP performance, there’s no doubt Max Verstappen will be coming into 2024 as the hot favorite.
- Constructors Championship: With Verstappen staying on with the 2023 World Constructors’ champ, Red Bull Racing, don’t expect too much to change in terms of the Constructors’ Championship in 2024.
- Team Changes: At this stage, there are a few changes we know of. Alfa Romeo will leave F1 as it ends its partnership with Sauber, who is looking to join the Audi works team in 2026. AlphaTauri is scheduled for a rebranding and relocation to Milton Keynes, UK, amid management restructuring. And, finally, Aston Martin will enter under a new name with Cognizant resigning as the title sponsor.
- Regulation Changes: 2024 looks set to be a relatively tame year in terms of regulation changes, with the two biggest announcements concerning tire allocations and an altered structure for sprint weekends. Announcements concerning the new sprint weekend structure should follow the first F1 Commission meeting in 2024.
- Planned Races: The 2024 F1 Grand Prix should bring us 24 races over the course of the year. There aren’t too many changes from the 2023 schedule, with the only notable addition being the return of the F1 China Grand Prix. We should also see the return of the Emilia Romagna GP following its 2023 cancellation in the wake of flooding in the area. See below for the full race schedule.
2024 F1 Grand Prix Race Schedule
|February 29-March 2
|August 30-September 1
