All F1 Teams: The Federation Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA), motorsport’s international governing body, defines Formula One as the highest level of open-wheeled car racing. The term “formula” refers to a set of regulations established by the FIA to which all competitors and cars must conform. The F1 World Championship season is held each year, and it consists of a series of races known as Grands Prix, which are generally contested on purpose-built circuits and, on a few occasions, on closed city streets. Constructors are granted points based on the finishing positions of their two drivers at each Grand Prix, and the constructor with the most points at the end of each championship is declared World Constructors’ Champion for that year.
