Formula One, also known as F1 racing began in 1920. A unique sports car racing originated in Europe and was originally called the Grand Prix Motorsport. The sport has undergone many changes in its rules and substantial “formula” after World War II. Grand Prix Motorsport has a new formula – known today as Formula One in the middle of the 20th century, which give precedence to the later established, Word Championship racing rules and the first World Champion race in 1950.
There is a lot to learn about the Formula One racing season today, as it has become a dynamic series of races. Each race of the Formula One season consists of a series of races, known as Grands Prix as the English language means Grand Prizes. The Grand Prix was held on a combination of schemes based on the purpose and public roads. The results of each of these small races in the Grand Prix used to determine two annual World Championships, one for drivers and one for constructors.
Cars can go as fast as 360 km/h (220 miles per hour), and lateral acceleration to reach more than 5 g in corners. Performance cars said to be strongly dependent on the aerodynamics, suspension and tires. Aerodynamics has become a key component for Formula One racing cars, that tens of millions of dollars on research into new technologies put teams every year in this sector. Aerodynamics are considered in every aspect of a Formula One car – a form of suspension links, while the driver’s helmet. Researchers are constantly worried about two things when it comes to aerodynamics: the definition of force and drag. Create downforce pushing the car tire on the road, to improve the ability of the car cornering forces. Reducing the sliding speed of the vehicle contributes to the increase caused by the turbulence.
A typical event of Grand Prix usually lasts a week. Teams are allowed three practice before the official race. There is a qualifying session that was conducted to determine the order of the actual race. The qualifying period is referred to as “knock-out”. During knock-out session motorists follow three rounds, competing for a fast enough time to go to the next round.
During the official competition, the participants together form a grid in the order they qualified. To begin with a warm-up round is taken so that every driver can determine the condition of the runway. The winner of the race was the first to cross the finish line, completing a certain number of laps.
Formula One racing has come a long way since its inception in the early twentieth century. Development and growth of the sport, the company sport itself into a billion dollars, and the number of Grand Prix will take place today, are proof of the growing popularity of the sport.
