  • Team: Mercedes (joint second odds-on favorite team to win). Fractional odds: 5/1, American/moneyline odds: +500. Decimal odds: 6.00. IPR: 16.70%
  • Team: Ferrari. Fractional odds: 6/1, American/moneyline odds: +600. Decimal odds: 7.00. IPR: 14.30%
  • Team: Aston Martin. Fractional odds: 33/1, American/moneyline odds: +3,300. Decimal odds: 7.00. IPR: 2.90%

In other words, although changes to the McLaren pit crew have improved the team’s odds of winning the 2024 F1 Constructors Championship title, team Red Bull is still the far safer option if you are to bet on which team will most likely win this year.

Last year, team McLaren’s pit crew set a new pit stop record on the Lusail International Circuit at the Qatar Grand Prix. They managed to change all four of Lando Norris’ car tyres on lap 27 in a remarkable time of just 1.80 seconds!

The previous record was set by team Red Bull, who changed Max Verstappen’s tyres in 1.82 seconds in 2019 at the Brazilian Grand Prix. Team McClaren will be looking to set new records in 2024 and will hope to knock team Red Bull off their perch.
