Formula One racing is the pinnacle of motor racing around the world. These days, the sport is a truly global circus. At almost every race on the calendar, more than 120,000 spectators cram into the grandstands and spectator banking, all vying for a view of the millionaire superstar drivers. At the same time, in 150 countries worldwide, more than 300 million people tune in to watch the fight for glory in the comfort of their front rooms.

Formula One Racing For Dummies shares insight into why this sport attracts so much interest and so many devotees – whether the fans be following drivers, worshipping cars, satisfying their fascination with technology, or simply soaking up the atmosphere at the track. This spirited guide gives you the nitty-gritty on this wildly popular race, answering questions like

  • Why do Formula One cars have wings and why are they covered in logos?
  • How does a race begin without a green light to signal the start?
  • How do Formula One drivers prepare, mentally and physically, for a race?
  • How can I get an autograph of my favorite driver?
