When Did Formula 1 Start?

The history of Formula 1 dates back to Grand Prix racing of European origin, which began to be held in the 1920s. Araya 2. Races could not be held in the 1940s as World War II entered and nearly every country in Europe was somehow involved in the war. After the end of the war and the wounds were healed, the first race was held in Italy in 1950 and has been going on ever since. The winner of the first championship, held in 1950, was Italian Giuseppe Farina, the pilot of the Alfa Romeo. Farina's teammate Juan Manuel Fangio managed to win the Formula 1 Championships held in 1951, 1954, 1955, 1956 and 1957, finishing in first place. Fangio's success has still not been surpassed. In short, Fangio is the name that dominates the first 10 years.


Apart from that, there were two other periods of domination. During the 1980s and 1990s, Formula 1 was dominated by the McLaren and Williams teams. McLaren combined engineering with engines produced by German and Japanese manufacturers. Williams, on the other hand, used engines from European, Japanese and North American manufacturers. The two brands shared a total of 16 drivers 'and 16 manufacturers' championships.

Another period of domination occurred in the early 2000s. Ferrari was champion in brands and pilots in 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004 and 2005, with its powerful engines and the power it derives from its design. With this period leading to Michael Schumacher being referred to as a legend, Ferrari both intimidated their rivals and showed how powerful their technology was.

Let's just say Formula 1 is a gentlemen's race. It's a race where various rules are applied equally and no one has the privilege. That's why it's not easy to dominate the Formula 1 championship unless you have a very high-end technology or a racing driver who is beyond spectacular. Of course it was the brands and pilots who achieved it. However, both the superior engines and designs of the brands and The TransHuman zeal and ability of the pilots were instrumental in this.
