The Formula One series originated with the European Championship of Grand Prix motor racing (q.v. for pre-1947 history) of the 1920s and 1930s. The formula is a set of rules that all participant's cars must meet. Formula One was a new formula agreed upon after World War I I during 1946, with the first non-championship races held that year.
In the early years of Formula One, before the world championship was established, there were around twenty races held from the late Spring to early Autumn in Europe, although not all of these were considered significant.
The first world championship race was held at Silverstone, United Kingdom in 1950.
Technological advances in Formula One have been as important as who's behind the wheel. Nowadays each team must invest millions of USD in research and development to increase the performance of the race car.
Engineers continually test new materials, tires and car chassis to optimize efficiency on new tracks as well as to adapt to the changes in FIA rules. F1 race changes continuously over the years.
