The Formula 1 World Championship


The Formula Fans Formula 1 World Championship Statistics Collection

Formula One (or Formula 1 or F1) is referred to officially as the "FIA Formula One World Championship".

It is the highest class of single-seater motor racing sanctioned by the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA). The "formula" in the name refers to a specific set of rules and regulations which all cars must comply with. The formula has radically evolved and changed through the history of the sport.

The F1 season consists of a series of races, known as Grands Prix (from French, originally meaning 'great prizes'), held throughout the world on purpose-built circuits and public roads.

The results of each race are evaluated using a points system to determine two annual World Championships: the first for individual drivers, and the second for constructor teams. At present, F1 teams must field two cars in a season. Race points scored by both cars in a team contribute to the Constructors' World Championship

The racing drivers, constructor teams, track officials, organisers, and circuits are required to be holders of valid Super Licences, the highest class of racing licence issued by the FIA.

F1 cars are, on average, the fastest circuit-racing cars in the world, capable of reaching straight-line racing speeds of up to 350 km/h (220 mph). The aerodynamic stability, as well as very high levels of downforce and mechanical grip F1 cars produce ensure high speed levels are carried through corners as well.

Modern Formula 1 circuits are all multi-turn asphalt tracks. In earlier years a number of oval circuits were used in a season as well.

Europe is considered the sports traditional base, and hosts about half of each years races. Europe also provides a base of operations for all the present F1 teams. During recent years an increasing number of Grands Prix are held on other continents.

F1 had a total global television audience of 527-million people during the 2010 season.

Whilst Grand Prix motor racing has been recorded as early as in 1906, it only became truly popular on a global scale in the 2nd half of the twentieth century.

The World Drivers' Championship was only formalised in 1947, with the first World Championship race held at Silverstone in the UK in 1950. A separate championship for constructors was launched in 1958.
