Formula 1 | Bet on the Races
Formula One (also known as Formula 1 or F1) is the highest class of international single-seater car racing run by the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA) and owned by the Formula One Group.
The World Drivers' Championship, which became the FIA Formula One World Championship in 1981, has been one of the main forms of racing around the world since its inaugural season in 1950. The word "Formula" in the name refers to the set of rules to which all participants' cars must conform. A Formula One season consists of a series of races, known as Grands Prix (French for "grand prix"), held around the world on purpose-built circuits and public roads.

The Formula One series originated with the European Grand Prix Motor Racing Championship (q.v. for pre-1947 history) of the 1920s and 1930s. Formula comprises a set of rules that must be followed by all participants' cars. Formula One was a new Formula agreed upon in 1946 after World War II, with the first non-championship races taking place that year. The first Formula One race was the 1946 Turin Grand Prix. Several Grand Prix racing organizations had established rules for a world championship before the war, but due to the suspension of races during the conflict, the World Drivers' Championship was not formalized until 1947.
The first world championship race took place at Silverstone in the United Kingdom in 1950. This was followed by a constructors' championship in 1958. National championships existed in South Africa and the United Kingdom in the 60s and 70s. For many years Formula One events were held that were not championships, but due to the increasing costs of the competition, the last one took place in 1983.
On 26 November 2017, Formula One unveiled its new logo, following the end of the 2017 season in Abu Dhabi during the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix at the Yas Marina Circuit. The new logo replaced F1's iconic "flying one", which had been the sport's trademark since 1993.

The race begins with a warm-up lap, after which the cars are assembled on the starting grid in the order in which they qualified. This lap is usually called the formation lap, as the cars go through a formation lap without overtaking anyone (although a driver who makes a mistake can regain lost ground as long as he has fallen to the bottom of the field). The warm up lap allows the drivers to check the state of the track and their car, gives the tires a chance to warm up to increase traction and also gives the pit crews time to clear themselves and their team from the grid.
Once all the cars have been formed on the grid, after the medical car is placed behind the pack, a system of lights above the track indicates the start of the race: five red lights come on at one second intervals; then they are all turned off simultaneously after an indeterminate time (usually less than 3 seconds) to signal the start of the race.
Under normal circumstances, the winner of the race is the first driver to cross the finish line after completing a certain number of laps. Race officials may end the race early (by raising a red flag) due to unsafe conditions such as extreme rain, and must finish within two hours, although races are likely to last only that long in case of extreme weather or if the safety car is deployed during the race.
In the 1950s, race distances varied between 300 km and 600 km. The maximum length of the races was reduced to 400 km in 1966 and 325 km in 1971. The length of the race was normalized to the current 305 km in 1989. However, street races like the one in Monaco have shorter distances.
Throughout the race, drivers can make pit stops to change tires and repair damage (from 1994 to 2009 inclusive, they can also refuel). Different teams and drivers employ different pit stop strategies to maximize the potential of their car. Drivers have at their disposal three dry tire compounds, with different characteristics of durability and grip. During the course of a race, drivers must use two of the three compounds available.
Formula 1 | Cars & Racing Technology
Modern Formula 1 cars are single-seaters with central engine, hybrids, with open cabin and open wheels. The chassis is largely made of carbon fiber composites, which makes it light but extremely rigid and strong. The entire car, including the driver but without the fuel, weighs only 740 kg (1,630 lb), the minimum weight established by the regulations. If the car's structure is lighter than the minimum, it can be loaded with counterweights to add the necessary weight. Racing teams take advantage of this by placing this counterweight at the lower end of the chassis, thus placing the center of gravity as low as possible to improve handling and weight transfer.
The cornering speed of Formula 1 cars is largely determined by the aerodynamic force they generate, which pushes the car onto the track. This is provided by "wings" mounted on the front and rear of the vehicle, and by the ground effect created by the low air pressure under the flat bottom of the car.
The other important factor that controls the turning speed of the cars is the design of the tires. From 1998 to 2008, Formula One tires were not "flat" (tires with no tread pattern) as in most other circuit racing series. Instead, each tire had four large circumferential grooves in its surface designed to limit the cars' turning speed. Slick tires returned to Formula One in the 2009 season. The suspension is double wishbone or multi-link front and rear, with pushrod springs and shock absorbers in the chassis - an exception is the 2009 Red Bull Racing (RB5) race car that used pushrod suspension in the rear, the first car to do so since the Minardi PS01 in 2001. Ferrari used a pushrod suspension in both the front and rear in its 2012 car. Both Ferrari (F138) and McLaren (MP4-28) of the 2013 season used a dipstick suspension in both the front and rear.
Formula 1 | Drivers
A driver must finish in the top ten to receive a point for setting the fastest lap of the race. In the event that the driver marking the fastest lap finishes outside the top ten, the point for the fastest lap will not be awarded for that race.
Since 1950 several systems have been used to award championship points. The current system, applied since 2010, awards the ten best cars in the Drivers' and Constructors' Championship, and the winner receives 25 points. If both cars of a team finish on the podium, both receive Constructors' Championship points. All points earned in each race are added up, and the driver and the constructor with the most points at the end of the season are crowned World Champions. Regardless of whether a driver stays with the same team during the season, or changes teams, all points earned by him count towards the Drivers' Championship.
A driver must be qualified to receive points. To be classified, a driver does not have to finish the race, but to complete at least 90% of the distance of the winner's race. Therefore, it is possible for a driver to receive points even if he retires before the end of the race.
In the case that less than 75% of the laps of the race are completed by the winner, only half of the points listed in the table are awarded to the drivers and constructors. This has happened only five times in the history of the championship, and had a significant influence on the final classification of the 1984 season. The last time was at the 2009 Malaysian Grand Prix, when the race was suspended after 31 laps due to heavy rain.
* Driver must finish within the top ten to receive a point for setting the fastest lap of the race.
