Formula 1 World Championships

Formula 1 World Championships

Created after the War, in 1950, the first edition of the Formula 1 World Championships was held on 13 May 1950 at the Silverstone Circuit in England. At the first edition, there were only seven races in the entire championship. Today, four of these original races are still part of the 23 races in today’s season, held in Monza, Spa-Francorchamps, Monaco and Silverstone.

Formula 1 has become increasingly famous over the years, notably due to its international dimension. Today, 23 races are held between March and November in 21 countries.

Over 4 million spectators were recorded at Formula 1 races in the 2018 season and more than 1.5 billion spectators tuned in to watch in more than 190 countries. Formula 1 also has over 61 million followers on social media. The Netflix series Drive to Survive filmed from the F1 paddocks helped further cement this global renown.

In financial terms, Formula 1 is extremely profitable, generating over 2.5 billion euros for the FIA every year.
