Formula-1 (abbreviated as F1, formerly Formula 1 in Hungarian, Formula One) is the most prestigious international car racing series, the rules of which are set by the International Automobile Federation (FIA). 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.
