Everything You Need to Know About F1

Welcome, new F1 fan! Over the next few articles, we’re going to take you through everything you need to know about this exciting sport. We’ll go over what F1 cars are like, who drives them and how they do it, and even explain how points work. As with any sport, there’s plenty to learn before you start cheering for your favorite driver or team—but don’t worry: we’ll help you get started.

F1, a premier form of racing

F1 is the premier form of motorsport in the world, and it consistently draws a global audience of more than 400 million people. The sport boasts its own governing body, Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA), which is headquartered in Paris. The FIA oversees all aspects of competition, including:

  • Amateur kart racing
  • Open-wheel cars
  • Sports prototypes (also called GT cars)

The current cars

The current F1 cars are very complex pieces of kit, with fast and powerful 1.6L turbocharged V6 hybrid engines. The engine is mounted at the back of the car, just behind the driver’s seat. These engines produce over 1000 horsepower and produce more than 900 kilowatts (1200 BHP) of power depending on how much fuel they burn.

The new generation of engines makes noise too – to such a degree that it can reach 106dB at race speeds! No wonder then that modern Formula One cars have to be fitted with special glass panels over their radiators so that spectators can hear what’s going on inside them!

The first F1 race

The first F1 race was held in 1950 at Silverstone, Great Britain. The race began with a field of eight cars and was won by Giuseppe Farina.

The first season of the F1 World Championship consisted of seven races in Britain, Italy and Switzerland with various winners such as Juan Manuel Fangio, Alberto Ascari and Luigi Villoresi. This was followed by a series of events that were held until 1954 where most races were held within Great Britain or Italy (except for France).

F1 races take place all over the world, but most are held in Europe

F1 races are held all over the world. Some of the most popular countries for F1 races include England, France and Germany. These countries have large populations and high GDPs (gross domestic products). This means that they have a lot of money available to spend on entertainment. It also means that there are many people living in these countries who like watching sports, so they’re more likely to buy tickets for an F1 race than someone who lives somewhere with fewer people or less money available for entertainment purposes.

F1 is very popular

F1 is the most popular form of motorsport in the world. F1 is the pinnacle of motorsports, with races taking place around the globe. The best drivers from all over the world travel to compete in these races, which are watched by millions of people every year.

F1 races have some of the highest budgets and most advanced technology compared to other forms of racing. A Formula One car can cost up to $200 million! This is reflected in its speed; an F1 car can accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 2 seconds! This makes them one of the fastest vehicles on earth (and there are no safety features like airbags or seat belts).




F1 is a complex sport, but it’s also one of the most exciting and entertaining to watch. If you’re at all curious about motorsports in general, then this is a great way to get started.
