Formula One, currently officially referred as the FIA Formula One World Championship is the highest class of auto racing sanctioned by the Federation Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA). The "formula" in the name refers to a set of rules to which all participants and cars must comply. The F1 season consists of a series of races, known as Grands Prix, held on purpose-built circuits, and to a lesser extent, former public roads and closed city streets. The results of each race are combined to determine two annual World Championships, one for the drivers and one for the constructors, with both drivers and constructor teams required to be holders of valid Super Licences, the highest class racing licence issued by the FIA.
Formula One cars race at high speeds, up to 360 km/h with the engine revving up to 20,000 RPM. The cars are capable of pulling in excess of 5 G-forces in some curves. The performance of the cars is highly dependent on electronics (although Traction Control and driving aids have been banned since 2007 ), aerodynamics, suspension and on tyres; However the formula has seen many evolutions and changes through the history of the sport making for distinctive looks and performance changes every time a modification to the specifications is introduced.
Formula One went through a difficult period in the early 2000s. Viewing figures dropped, and fans expressed their loss of interest due to the dominance of Michael Schumacher and Scuderia Ferrari. Viewing figures are seeing some signs of recovery due to the varied seasons since 2005. Ferrari's and Schumacher's 5 year domination ended in 2005 as Renault became the top team in Formula One, with Fernando Alonso becoming the new (and youngest ever at the time) World Champion. There has since been a resurgence of interest in the sport, especially in Alonso's home country of Spain, and Lewis Hamilton's home country of Great Britain. In 2006, twenty-two teams applied for the final twelfth team spot available for the 2008 season.
i am going to talk to the better drvier of Formula one:
• Alain Prost: is a French racing driver. A four-time Formula One Drivers' Champion, only Juan Manuel Fangio and Michael Schumacher have won more titles than Prost. From 1987 until 2001 Prost held the record for most Grand Prix victories. Schumacher surpassed Prost's total of 51 victories at the 2001 Belgian Grand Prix. He had won 51 Grand Prix, 106 podiums, and 33 pole positions.
• Nikki Lauda: is an Austrian aviator, entrepreneur, former Formula One (F1) racing driver and three-time F1 World Champion. He has founded and run two airlines and was manager of the Jaguar Formula One racing team for two years. He had won 25 Grand prix, 54 podiums, and 24 pole positions.
• Ayrton Senna: was a Brazilian race car driver and three-time Formula One world champion. He was killed while leading the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix and is the most recent Grand Prix driver to die at the wheel of a Formula One car. I have to do a special attention to Ayrton Senna, because he was an excellent driver and for my He had in the three better drivers of all times. He had won 41 Grnad prix, 80 podiums, and 65 pole positions.
• Damon Hill: is a retired British racing driver from England. In 1996 Hill won the Formula One World Championship; as the son of the late Graham Hill, he is the only son of a world champion to win the title. His father died in a plane crash when Hill was 15, leaving the family in reduced circumstances and Hill came to professional motorsports at the relatively late age of 23 by racing motorcycles. After some minor success, he moved on to single-seater racing cars, and progressed steadily up the ranks to the International Formula 3000 championship by 1989, where although often competitive he never won a race. He had won 22 Grand prix, 42 podiums, and 20 pole positions.
• Emerson Fittipaldi: is a highly successful Brazilian automobile racing driver, winning championships in both Formula One and CART, and the Indianapolis 500 twice. He had won 14 Grand prix, 35 podiums, and 6 pole positions.
• Nelson Piquet: Nelson Piquet Souto Maior (born August 17, 1952), more commonly known as Nelson Piquet, is a Brazilian former racing driver who was Formula One world champion in 1981, 1983, and 1987. He is one of the few men to win at least three world championships in the history of Formula One. He had won 23 grand prix, 60 podiums, and 24 pole positions.
• Jackie Stewart: is a Scottish former racing driver. He competed in Formula One between 1965 and 1973, winning three World Drivers' Championships. He also competed in Can-Am. He is well-known in the United States as a color commentator of racing television broadcasts, and as a pitchman for Ford, where his Scottish accent made him a distinctive presence. Between 1997 and 1999, in partnership with his son, Paul, he was team principal of the Stewart Grand Prix Formula One racing team. He had won 23 Grand Prix, 43 podiums, and 17 pole positions.
• Michael Schumecher: is a former Formula One driver, seven-time world champion, and current advisor and occasional test driver for Ferrari. According to the official Formula One website, he is "statistically the greatest driver the sport has ever seen". He is the only German to win the Formula One World championship, and is credited with popularising Formula One in Germany. In a 2006 FIA survey, Michael Schumacher was voted the most popular driver among Formula One fans.After winning two championships with Benetton, Michael Schumacher moved to Scuderia Ferrari in 1996 and won five consecutive drivers' titles with them from 2000–2004. Schumacher holds many records in Formula One, including most drivers' championships, race victories, fastest laps, pole positions, points scored and most races won in a single season. Schumacher is the only Formula One driver to have an entire season of podium finishes, a feat he accomplished in 2002. His driving sometimes created controversy: he was twice involved in collisions that determined the outcome of the world championship, most notably his disqualification from the 1997 championship for causing a collision with Jacques Villeneuve. After the 2006 Formula One season Schumacher retired from race driving. He had won 91 Grand Prix, 154 podiums, and 68 pole positions.
• Mika Häkkinen: Is a Finnish racing driver and two-time Formula One champion. He was Michael Schumacher's greatest rival in F1. The German has said himself that Häkkinen is the rival he respected the most during his Formula One career. He had won 20 Grand prix, 51 podiums and 26 pole positions.
• Fernando Alonso: is a Spanish Formula One racing driver and a two-time World Champion.On September 25, 2005 he won the World Driver's Championship title at the age of 24 years and 58 days, thus breaking Emerson Fittipaldi's record of being the youngest World Drivers' Champion (currently held by Lewis Hamilton). After retaining the title the following year, Alonso also became the youngest double Champion. In 2007, he became the second F1 driver, after Michael Schumacher, to score at least 100 points for three consecutive seasons. Nicknamed El Nano, Alonso acts as a Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF and is one of the directors of the Grand Prix Drivers' Association. He has won 21 Grand Prix, he had 52 podiums and 17 pole positions.
