Formula One, abbreviated as F1 (or the full name FIA Formula One World Championship), is the highest class of single-seat auto racing regulated by the International Automotive Federation (FIA) and owned by the Formula One Group. The word formula in "Formula One" refers to the rules and regulations that all participants must follow. Formula One consists of a series of races known as Grand Prix. The races are held in circuits or public roads in the city which are closed to the public.
The results of each race are calculated using a points system to determine two world titles: one for the drivers, and one for the constructors. Each race must hold a Super Licence, the highest class of race license granted by the FIA. F1 races must be held on a circuit rated "1" (formerly "A"), which is the highest circuit rating in the FIA ranking system. Formula One cars are the fastest racing cars in the world, due to the high cornering speeds generated by downforce aerodynamics. the big one. In 2017 there was a major regulatory change that allowed for a wider front wing, rear wing and tires. This change allows cornering forces to reach 6.5 g and an estimated maximum speed of 360 km/h. As of 2019, the hybrid engine speed is limited to around 15,000 rpm.
Traction control systems and other electronic assists were banned from use in Formula One, first banned in 1994. They were reintroduced in 2001. since 2008. On January 23, 2017, Liberty Media completed its acquisition of the Formula One Group, from CVC Capital Partners for $8 billion.
The Formula One series has its roots in the European motorcycle grand prix series of the 1920s and 1930s. A number of grand prix racing organizations made a number of rules for the world championships before World War II. Due to delays due to war, the drivers' world championships were not formalized until 1947 and took place for the first time in 1950. The constructors' world championships followed in 1958. Formula One racing without a title was held for many years, but due to rising competition costs the competition ended early. 1980s.
The name of this sport, Formula One, indicates that it is the most advanced and competitive sport among other formula car racing.

Beginning of competition
The first Formula One world title was won by Italian driver Giuseppe Farina in his Alfa Romeo in 1950, beating his teammate, Argentine Juan Manuel Fangio. However, Fangio won the world title in 1951 and four times in the following six years. Fangio went on to become a legend who dominated the first years of Formula One competition.
The first British world champion was Mike Hawthorn, who drove a Ferrari to win the title in 1958. Then Colin Chapman entered F1 competition as an auto designer and later founder of Lotus, the British racing green coming to dominate the competition in the following decades. Jim Clark, Jackie Stewart, Jack Brabham, Graham Hill, and Denny Hulme are a list of drivers from the British and Commonwealth of Nations teams who won twelve world titles between 1962 and 1973. In 1962, Lotus introduced a car with an aluminum frame which known as a monocoque which replaces the traditional tubular frame. This discovery later became a major technological advancement step since the invention of the mid-engined car. 1968 was the first year the sport was sponsored by Lotus who painted "Imperial Tobacco" on its cars. Downforce aerodynamics gradually played an important role in car design, starting with the advent of aerofoils in the 1960s. Late 1970, Lot
