Good to know - The Formula 1 (F1)
The Formula 1 World Championship is the highest-ranking race series organized by the FIA of formula racing. It is regarded as the pinnacle of motor sport, claiming to make the toughest demands of any racing series on both drivers and constructors in terms of technical expertise, driving skill and financial resources.
The Formula 1 World Championship has been held every year since the 1950 season, when the first race took place at Silverstone in England. The present season (2015) comprises twenty individual races, each of which is known as a Grand Prix. The established European classics at Monza, Spa Francorchamps and Hockenheimring are increasingly being joined by circuits in Asia, Latin America and the Middle East.
