Formula One is the most famous speed races in the world. The name “Formula 1” refers to the set of controls and standards that must be met in races, as well as the protocols and rules that racers must follow. In the past, this race was known as “Formula A”.
The first edition of Formula 1 was launched in 1894. At that time people viewed cars as a tool for racing and fun, like wooden carriages drawn by horses, but because cars at that time were not powerful nor safe there were no professional races or qualified methods for arbitration.
With the advent of the twentieth century, cars had gained more power, greater flexibility in control, and it included safety standards. So it was planned to establish the first professional Formula One race track in France, but this plan faced major problems as a result of the economic depression, the beginning of World War II, and fuel shortages.
During 1946, the race was revived again. In this year, the first test race was held, and a year later the decision was made to launch a championship for professional drivers, however, it was not until 1950 that the rules for racing were elaborated and precisely set. In that year the first Formula Championship was held in Silverstone, United Kingdom.
