  • In qualifying after the first and second segment 7pilots falls on. This procedure is applicable in the case of the participation of 24 cars, if 22 cars are involved, then, after the first and second session six members are excluded. If 20 cars are involved, then after the first and second session five members are excluded.
  • After the end of the qualification cars are sent in a closed park, that is, before the start of the race should not be significantly changed its settings. Top ten should start on the same tires that were installed on the car at the time when it was shown the best time. In exceptional cases, a set of tires can be replaced by a similar, if the tires have been damaged, in coordination with the Technical Delegate FIA.
  • The race is held on Sunday at 14:00 according to local time in European countries and more recently in Asia and Australia to broadcast in Europe has not come too early in the morning. During the race the pilots should pass the number of laps, which is pre-determined based on the length of the circle of race track. The number of laps is selected so that the total race distance is equal to or superior to the minimum 305 km (exception – 260 km to the Monaco Grand Prix). This race may not last more than two hours. This means that if 2 hours the leader does not overcome the distance of the race, after 2 hours the circle, which in the moment would be racers would be declared as final.

While Formula 1 car often exceed the speed of 300 kph, the absolute speed of Formula 1 can not be considered as the most fast auto-racing series, as many parameters of motors in it are significantly limited (limited volume, denied turbocharger, etc). However, at an average speed per lap among road-circular auto racing (excluding ovals) Formula 1 has no equal. This is possible thanks to a very effective brakes and aerodynamics.

Brake booster and anti-lock braking system is prohibited.

10.12.2010 at the meeting of the World Council of FIA, it was decided to move the season in 2013 with four-cylinder engines, 1.6 liter, with fuel injection pressure up to 500 bar and limited to 12 thousand speed.

Prior to 2009, Formula 1 used pseudoslicks – tires with 4 longitudinal grooves. They were introduced instead of slicks in 1998 to reduce speeds by reducing grip. In 2009, the downforce of spoilers was significantly reduced, to compensate the loss of adhesion were reintroduced slicks.

The size of front and rear tires during the evolution of Formula racing cars was constantly changing, now the front and rear tires are different, the size of the front tires 245/55 R13, rear 270/55 R13.

1981 was marked by the signing of the first contract agreement – a document regulating relations between the teams in Formula 1 and the FIA. According to this Agreement all rights to the television broadcast of F1 racing were transferred to the newly formed company Formula One Promotions and Administration (FOPA) (later known as the Formula One Management – FOM), whose director was the Bernie Ecclestone.
