2018 British Grand Prix


Formula 1 has its roots in motor racing in the late nineteenth century, which began to assume the status of grand prizes since 1906. In the twenties, there was the first serious regulation of competitions, called "Formula Grand Prix", and was adopted mainly in Europe. This regulation was the basis of three editions of a World Constructors' Championship (won by Alfa Romeo in 1925, by Bugatti in 1926 and by Delage in 1927), of two editions of an "International Championship" (in 1931 Minoia's victory over Alfa, and in 1932 Nuvolari victory over Alfa) and the five editions of a "European Grand Prix Championship" (from 1935 to 1939) dominated by German drivers and cars.
In 1946 it was baptized with the name "Formula A", with which they were disputed a first series of grand prizes not valid for the title. Two types of engines were allowed to compete: the 1.5-liter supercharged and the 4.5-liter aspirates, whereas in the years before the Second World War, only the supercompresses of any capacity were allowed until 1938, after which there was the limitation to 3.0 liters. The first contest disputed with this new regulation took place on 1 September 1946 in Turin; the Grand Prix of Turin, on the Valentino circuit of the homonymous park, which was won by Achille Varzi at the wheel of an Alfa Romeo 158.
Two days later, the "Coppa Brezzi" took place on the same track, during which Tazio Nuvolari at the wheel of the debutant Cisitalia D46 sent the audience into raptures making a couple of laps without a steering wheel (which had broken), clinging to the steering column . The Turin-based company also prepared a revolutionary 1 500 cm³ turbocharged rear-engined car, designed by Ferdinand Porsche, which was credited with the astonishing top speed of 350 km / h [2]; with it, the great Tazio caressed the dream of participating in the World Motoring Championship, which began to speak in 1947.
The following year (1948) the name of the formula was changed to the current one due to the birth of Formula 2. In 1949, seven grand prizes were chosen to award the trophy. Meanwhile, Varzi had died on the Berne circuit and Nuvolari, sick, could no longer return to the track, while the Cisitalia adventure collapsed due to lack of funds. On the 1950 scenario, many new names appeared, which took the place of the pre-war axes. Juan Manuel Fangio, who won the Grand Prix of Pau, won the Maserati Prize on Maserati on April 10th.
A month later the first race valid for the championship was held, the Grand Prix of Great Britain of 1950. The drivers' title followed a title for the builders in 1958. For the first two years the races for Formula One cars were not organized in a championship. However, they immediately assumed the name of "grand prizes" and had international prominence (they were organized in various countries of Europe). In 1950 the first Formula One World Championship was organized, so called even if it actually took place at European level, which was won by Nino Farina aboard an Alfa Romeo 158 (Alfa Romeo also won the second world championship of Formula one, with 159). In the calendar of the first Formula 1 world championship (1950) was also included the Indianapolis 500, but none of the pilots and teams involved in the other races of the World Championship disputed it).
Over the decades, national championships have also been organized for Formula One cars (for example the South African one and the British Formula One Series which ran between 1978 and 1982 in the United Kingdom) and until 1983 many grand prizes not valid for a championship. Currently, the Formula One cars compete exclusively in the World Championship, organized annually by the International Automobile Federation, which has always been disputed from 1950 to today and is unanimously considered the highest expression of modern motoring.
Every decade has had its own physiognomy fairly precise: in the fifties dominated cars with front engines; in the sixties the one with a rear engine, without ailerons; in the seventies there was instead a great development of the aerodynamics of the Formula 1 car; the eighties were characterized by turbo engines; the nineties from electronics; the two thousand years from the competition between the major car manufacturers.
