If you have turned on the TV recently and saw what looked like F1 cars flying around the track and barely making a sound, you may have reached for the unmute button on your remote. What you may in fact have discovered is Formula E. Imagine Formula 1 racing with all-electric vehicles and you get an idea of what we are on about here. If you are just finding the sport now, you have just 2 races remaining to see how exciting it truly is. The 2021 season is winding down and will conclude with a pair of races in Berlin. Both races are set to go this weekend, with a champion set to be crowned. Let’s take a look at the top 4 in the driver standings to see who might win it all and so you can bet against the Formula E odds.
Formula E Betting Analysis for the 2021 BMW I Berlin E-Prix
Nyck De Vries
The Dutchman has to be in as the favorite to be the champion this weekend, as he currently holds the lead in the driver standings. That lead is just 6 points, though, so we are certainly not taking anything for granted. This is just the second full season in Formula E for De Vries, and you have to say that his current standing is something of a surprise, He finished 11th overall last season, but he set the tone early with a win in Diriyah in the opening weekend. He has added one more win to the tally and pushed himself to the top with a pair of 2nd place finishes in the 2 recent London races. Berlin was not kind to him last season, but he is a much better driver this year.
If anyone can run down the current leader in the final 2 races of the season, you would have to say that Frijns seems the most likely. The problem that Frijns has heading into the final weekend is that he is still looking for his first win of the season. The reason why he has been able to hang around and stay in touch with De Vries is because he has picked up points in every single race this season. Frijns has a pair of podium finishes this season and had a pair of 2nd place finishes in Berlin last season. Can he finish strong and steal the title?
Heading into the 2 races in London, the British driver looked like a very good bet to win the world championship this season. He had already picked up 2 wins on the year and was driving consistently well. The bad news was that he failed to finish in both of the London races, which was no doubt a disappointment given that it all happened on home soil. He now has to make up 14 points to win it all and do it in Berlin, where his best career finish was 5th.
To say that this has been a successful first season in Formula E for Jake Dennis is putting things rather mildly. He is sitting in 4th right now, and while he is a long shot to win it all, he still has to be pleased with his showing. Dennis has 2 wins on the season already, taking the checkered flag in Valencia and London, so he has to be considered a threat this weekend.
