The pinnacle of motor racing. First began in 1950 at Silverstone England. Great racers: Fangio 5 championships, Prost 4 championships Senna 3 Championships. and now Schumacher who has 7. Open wheel racing, akin to the IRL, but they also turn right. Race once a year at the Indy 500 backwards.
- Schumacher has won again, his 83 F1 victory.

Founded in 1950 when the first world championship was raced, it has developed today into what is the greatest form of motor racing known to man and the greatest sport in the world.

Owned by Bernie, who rakes in $2.5Billion US per anum from the sport, it is an insitution, more sacred to fans then religion.
OMG! It's only 6 days until The opening race of the season starts in Melbourne, Australia.

unlike the DTM (Deutsch Touring Mastersheift) which is the pinnacle of road racing in full bodied cars.. F1 is the best of the best in open wheel racing.. founded in 1950 at Silverstone. it has quickly grown to be the worlds second most popular form of auto racing (just behind the WRC which is the first) and is very much like the English Premier League of Auto Racing... the cars these days aren't as fast as their counterparts in the IRL (Indy Racing League) but what they lack in speed they make up for with spot on turning and acceleration, the season starts in Melbourne Australia and usually ends at an Asian Track... most recently Fuji Japan
they used to race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway infield road course, but due to the tracks layout and the lack of seats on the infield the FIA suspended all racing there indefinitely, there are rumors of Formula 1 going to Elk Hart Lake Wisconsin at the Road America Circuit... but that is strictly a rumor... as an American it really pisses me off when people who are clearly British say we know nothing about Formula 1, and that we're all centered around NASCAR... not true my European friends every year i make the 500 mile commute to Montreal to watch the Canadian GP I've been a fan long enough to watch the great Ayrton Senna race. and i was alive to see him die...
Nascar Fan: who do you think the best driver that ever lived was
Formula 1 fan: Ayrton Senna
Nascar Fan: didn't he drive the #24 car before Jeff Gordon?
Formula 1 fan: *bitch slaps the NASCAR Fan*

The pinnacle of motor sport racing. It started in 1950 with the first ever championship race. You are an idiot if you do not watch it, as it takes place all over the world. Most Americans do not like the sport for they are ignorant idiots who watch NASCAR, which sucks.
Guy A: Who do you think is going to win the Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix?
Guy B: Alonso and Renault

A form of racing where drivers play follow the leader for a few hours. I really don't understand how people enjoy watching this.
Formula 1 is popular in Europe.
