Formula 1 racing is an expensive sports car race, with large funding and large scale investment, but many countries wish to host it.
The F1 races are Grands Prix run by the World Automobile Association (FIA). Each race is an opportunity to earn points for the F1 championship, for riders and technical teams.
F1 has been a popular race for decades with special racing tracks. The first race took place in 1950 in England. He still holds F1 racing at an old airport named Silverstone. In 1929, the race opened the first street race in Monaco, and almost remained as it is today. In 2008, Singapore became the first F1 race in the evening and one of the tourist features of this country.
Each race is divided into 3 stages: Training – Quality evaluation – Racing. Interesting race when the driver not only has to overcome the opponent but also has to protect the special car and minimize the time at the spare parts inspection station.
Checkpoints (PITs) are also the highlight of F1, scenes often seen in movies. Riders choose to pull up to the stations so the technical team can change the wheels. The fastest stop in F1 history was 1,923 seconds for the Red Bull team in the 2013 American Grand Prix, while the average design team would change in 2.5 seconds. Since 2011, the addition of fuel is prohibited. The inspection and replacement of each small component is carefully arranged to maximize downtime at the PIT.
Vehicles must be designed according to a certain set of rules. Since 2014, vehicles have used electric powertrains with a 1.4-liter V6 turbocharged engine and energy recovery system (ERS) to use energy from the brakes and exhaust. The engines produce 600 horsepower, while the ERS adds 160 horsepower.
Teams have to design their own cars, but can buy engines from rivals. There are currently 4 engine manufacturers: Ferrari, Honda, Mercedes-Benz and Renault, for 11 teams. Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz and Renault run their own teams, while Honda cooperates with McLaren.
