F1 HISTORY

FORMATION YEARS.
In 1950, as an answer to the Motorcycle World Championship in 1949, the Federal International Automobile (FIA) organized the first official World Championship Drivers, using the F1 rules designed after the war. This regulations demanded that they must use 4.5 gallons atmospheric engines or super-loaded. The championship organization, that was incorporated the 5biggest European Cups, it was just the formalization of what they were running on the previous years. The Italian teams Alfa Romeo, Ferrari and Maserati dominated the first year of the championship, even though builders from other countries also took part on the local races.

In 1950 was Alfa Romeo who dominated. Giuseppe Farina won in Silverstone the Grand Prix of England, the first worldchampionship. He was the first world champion driver in his Alfetta 158 of 1.5 gallons super-loaded. The control of Alfa continued until 1951, when the great Juan Manuel Fangio obtained the first of 5 championship titles. However, Alfa found a strong opponent in the Ferrari normally sucked of 4.5 gallons up to the end of 1951 and decided to retired.

Considering the high costs and the lowest seriouscompetitors to the Ferraris, the FIA decided for the next two world championship drivers must used their cars with 2 gallons engine as used in F2. Unfortunately, the Italian domain grew up with the revolutionary 550s from the team of Enzo Ferrari, giving to the Italian legend Antonio Ascari his two championships in 1952 y 1953.

In 1954 the championship turned back to F1 regulations. Newregulations let 2.5 gallons atmospheric engines. With this modifications the Italian domain was ended, but instead to increase the competition, this new regulations allowed the great return of the silver narrows of Mercedes, the sport that they had been dominated in the 1930s. The Mercedes’ Cars in hands of Fangio won the two seasons, with the record of almost all wining of them except two races. However,at the end of 1955 Mercedes disappeared as fastest as they came, they retired from the competitions for over 30 years, due for an horrible accident in 24 hours of Le Mans, this allowed to Ferrari and Maserati got back to the podium with their usual Italian red tones.

But at the end of 1958 the podium color had been changed. No matter that it was a Ferrari’s driver who won the World ChampionsDrivers’ title, was the British Mike Hawthorn who won it, the first British to do this. Meanwhile, the British Vanwalss driven by Stirling Moss and Tony Brooks the first World Championship Constructors. The Vanwalss were most fastest than their Italian enemies, but the Vanwalss often fight their points again themselves, and this allowed Hawthorn win for only one point.

THE TECHNOLOGY WAS APPEARED.1958 marked the difference for F1 on a very special way. Stirling Moss won the Grand Prix in Argentina driving a Cooper with a back engine by the private team of Rob Walker. This was the first victory in F1 for a car with a back engine. The next Grand Prix also was wined for the same cooper driven by Maurice Trintignant. In 1961 F1 tried to stop the top speed into the engines of 1.5 gallons,this rule was operating for over 5 years.

AILERONS AND SPONSORED WERE COMING.
Even though failed in winning the title in 1967, the Lotus Team of Jim Clark and Graham Hill was again so dominated as they were in 1965. They were the first team in use the Ford-Cosworth DFV, this will dominate the following decade of F1. For the following months three revolutions changed drastic the F1.
