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 (2017) 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.

Marcus Ericsson (born 2 September 1990) is a Swedish race car driver.
After a successful début in car racing in 2007 which saw him take the British Formula BMW title with Fortec Motorsport, he moved up into the British team's British Formula Three Championship squad. After finishing as one of the top rookies in the category, Ericsson turned his attentions to the All-Japan Formula Three Championship where he won the championship in his debut year. In 2010, he moved up to the GP2 Series where he secured one victory during his maiden campaign for Super Nova Racing. Between 2011 and 2012, Ericsson drove for iSport. Ericsson completed the 2013 GP2 season with DAMS, and debuted in Formula One in 2014 with Caterham F1.
Since 2015 Marcus Ericsson is driving for Sauber F1 Team.
Pascal Wehrlein was born 18 October 1994 and holds the dual nationality of Germany and Mauritius.
Pascal started in karting and has proved his potential in junior single seater racing, but above all with Mercedes-Benz in the DTM where he drove from 2013 until 2015, breaking record after record: He became the youngest debutant in 2013, the youngest race winner in 2014, followed by becoming the youngest champion in 2015.
In 2017 Wehrlein joined to become a race driver with the Sauber F1 Team alongside Marcus Ericsson.
