Formula 1Formula 1 (F1) is the highest class of single-seater auto racing sanctioned by the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA). The F1 world championship has been one of the premier forms of racing since its inaugural season in 1950.

The F1 season consists of a series of races held around the world on a set calendar, and is made up of a maximum of 22 events held in 19 countries on the five continents of Europe, Asia, North and South America, and Oceania. The season runs from March to November, and each race lasts approximately two hours with drivers being required to make two mandatory pit stops to change tyres and refuel the car. The winner of the championship is determined by a points system based on race results. At the end of the season, the driver and team with the most points are crowned as the champion. Historically, the drivers’ championship has been dominated by five drivers: Juan Manuel Fangio, Alain Prost, Michael Schumacher, Lewis Hamilton, and Sebastian Vettel. Collectively, they have won the drivers championship a total of 18 times and the constructors championship 23 times.
