Open Formula One-seater racing cars are eligible for the Formula One World Championship. The competition series consists of several stations, the Grand Prix (Grand Prix), which are held on closed paved or urban tracks designed for this purpose. Based on the results, two world champions are inaugurated each year, one individual and one constructor (team world championship). Hundreds of millions of races are televised in more than two hundred countries around the world. The first Formula One World Championship was held in 1950. The historic center of Formula One is Europe, from which it is being pushed out due to a ban on tobacco advertising and economic pressure from emerging Asian countries. Today, the Formula One Grand Prix is ​​held in many parts of the world, including Azerbaijan, China, Bahrain and Singapore. A record twenty-two races will be held in 2020, nine of them in Europe, but it has completely shaken the 2020 race calendar due to the outbreak of the coronavirus epidemic. The Hungarian Grand Prix of Formula 1 has been held continuously since 1986, the only race of its kind in a former socialist country for a long time. With a V6 1.6-liter turbocharged engine limited to 14,000 rpm (V6 turbo engine, formerly V8 from 2014), they can reach speeds of 380 km / h, with 6-7g of force in some corners. There have been many technical innovations in the sport throughout its history. In addition to engine performance, electronics, aerodynamics, suspension and tires have improved a lot in cars. Formula One is one of the most expensive sports in the world, and the cost of the teams is largely covered by sponsors. For a long time, Bernie Ecclestone, the president of Formula One Management (FOM) in the UK, had the biggest influence in Formula One. In 2017, on the other hand, the sport has taken on new ownership, with Liberty Media bringing a lot of change and promising motorsport.

World Championships

Since 1950, the Formula One World Championships have been held annually, consisting of several races, also known as the Grand Prix. At the end of the races, the first ten competitors will receive points according to the order of arrival. If for some reason the field has not completed 75% of the race distance, competitors will only receive half the points for their placement. Current scoring system (since 2010): In 2014, this system was supplemented with the modification that in the last race of the World Championship, there will be a double score after the rankings. However, this amendment has been withdrawn for further purposes. The world title will be awarded to the competitor with the most points at the end of the year. In the event of a tie, the number of better places will decide (number of wins, second place, third place and so on), although the league title has not yet been decided in this way. With the smallest difference to date, Niki Lauda won the World Championship in 1984. The scoring system has been changed several times since 1950, initially only the first five riders were scored, at which time the fastest lap runner also received a point. Later, 1 point went to 6th place. From 2003 to 2010, the top eight finishers in the race received points. The scoring system has changed again since 2010, with the top ten competitors scoring and the winner receiving 25 points. From 2019, the points system for the fastest lap returned. Teams with two will take part in the World Championships
