The History of Formula One : Grand Prix Begin

By Unknown - February 05, 2018

Formula 1 is a set of technical rules for single-seater car racing announced by Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA), the supreme body responsible for all types of automotive sports. The rules are made yearly and explain in detail the maximum size and minimum machine capacity, technical rules, and safety rules of the racer as well as the audience. The car built with this rule is called the Formula 1 car and the race that uses the car is called Formula 1 car racing. In addition there are other class specifications from the FIA, such as the F-3 and F-3000.

Consists of a series of races known as the Grand Prix. Races are held in circuits or public streets in cities that are closed to the public. The result determines two world titles, one for the racer and one for the constructors. In races, race cars can reach speeds of 300 km / h (185 mph) generated by a machine that can achieve 900 horsepower on an engine speed of about 18,000 rpm (as of 2005).

The Formula One series has its roots in the European motor grand prix series in the 1920s and 1930s. A number of grand prix racing organizations made a number of rules for the world championship before World War II. By reason of war postponement, the drivers 'world championship was not formalized until 1947 and took place for the first time in 1950. The constructors' world championship then followed in 1958. Formula One racing without titles was held for many years, but due to the swelling of competition costs resulted in the competition ending at the beginning 1980s.

Formula One world title was first won by Italian racer Giuseppe Farina with his Alfa Romeo in 1950, beating his Argentine teammate Juan Manuel Fangio. However, Fangio won the world title in 1951 and four times in the next six years. Fangio then became a legend that dominated the first years of Formula One competition.

In 1962, Lotus introduced a car with an aluminum frame known as monocoque that replaced the traditional tubular frame. The discovery was then a major technological step forward since the discovery of mid-engines. The year 1968 is the first year of this sport to use sponsorship that begins with Lotus who painted "Imperial Tobacco" in his car.

Aerodynamic downforce style slowly plays an important role in car design, beginning with the emergence of aerofoil in the 1960s. In the late 1970s Lotus introduced ground aerodynamics (ground effect) which produced a good compression force that increased the speed at the bend (this concept had previously been tested by Jim Hall with the team.

1981 was known as the beginning of the Concorde Agreement, a contract that binds teams to compete until the end of the contract. The contract also contains an equal share of the profits earned from the sale of television rights. It is a sign of the end of the FISA-FOCA War. The second Concorde Agreement was signed in 1992 and the third in 1997 which will expire at the end of 2007.

The beginning of 1990 was marked by the introduction of electronic aids such as power steering, traction control and semi-automatic gearbox. The FIA, due to the many complaints about race outcomes that are more technologically determined than the racer's expertise, banned some of these tools in 1994. However, many observers argue that the ban on racers means nothing at all because the FIA ​​does not have the technology or methods to eliminate these features of the competition.

The qualifying format changed several times in the 2003 competition. One of them is the necessity for the racer to start the race with the same amount of fuel after qualification, which forces the team to find a new strategy. Another rule is restrictions on the use of the same machine for two races. Drivers who change the engine will get a penalty start the race from the back position. Racers are also not allowed to change tires during the race, except to replace damaged tires so they can pose a risk to driver safety.

The year 2005 marks the end of the era of the 10 cylinder engine used for more than two decades. The new 8 cylinder engine is planned to be introduced at the start of the 2006 season. [more...]
