Our favorite sport to look past a little differently than we used to watch with you today. Formula 1 today and a few decades ago – two different things. In what may be expressed is the difference? In many ways! Well, for example, in the capital truths, as, for example, attribute the Formula 1 and Formula 1 cars: their specifications in the history of racing have changed repeatedly, constantly improving. Those speed that a couple of decades ago seemed just gorgeous, now Formula 1 overcomes with a condescending smile. But, perhaps, enough of the verb the truism that in the blood of every fan of Formula 1. Let's Let us close familiarity with the history Formula 1. Perhaps, the official history of Formula 1 starts in 1950 when the first World Championship F1.
The winner was the Italian Giuseppe Farina who is only slightly ahead of his teammate Argentine Juan-Manuel Fangio. The latter, incidentally, over the next 7 years as much as 5-times world champion. Fangio entered the history of race as one of the greatest pilots of Formula 1 and has long been a champion on the number of championship titles. Today, Formula 1, too, can boast a talented pilots, is not it? The long history of Formula 1 just confirms once again what was said! Since 1958, the era of F1 in the English-speaking riders: until 1969 became champions of Formula 1: British Mike Hawthorn, Graham Hill, Jimmy Clark, John Surtees and Jackie Stewart, Australian Jack Brabham, a New Zealander Danny Hulme, and American Phil Hill. But you must admit, auto racing – is not only drivers and teams racing – it is also the machine. Formula 1 cars too have their story: the characteristics of fireballs, attributes, appearance, and many others repeatedly changed over the decades. For example, the first Technological innovation in Formula 1 racing cars are rear-engined Cooper Company.
Prior to this race Grand Prix 1934-1939 Auto Union team has already used the rear-engined racing cars design of Ferdinand Porsche, but these race cars are very different complex behavior on the track, while Cooper T43/T51 famous for very good handling, but weak motor. Jack Brabham (command "Cooper"), won championships in 1959 and 1960, and in 1961 already, all participants went to the championship Car rear-engined design. In 1962, the Lotus team (one of the leading teams of Formula 1 in the 60's and 70's) first used in the construction of monocoque cars, borrowing a design from the aviation industry. This, of course, could not enter into the history of Formula 1 teams. In 1968, Lotus came with yet another innovation to its racing cars coloring labels company Imperial Tobacco. This attribute of Formula 1 has become the starting point of a sponsorship racing. Speed increases the value of downforce, it causes the team to experiment in the design of splashes and other aerodynamic elements. In the late 1970's Lotus pioneered Ground-effect (English ground effect), which greatly increases the downforce at the expense of thin air under the bottom of the car. This allows pilots to take turns much faster. Soon all the teams went to use it. In 1983, Ground-effect has been banned due to fia against increasing speeds.
