Frequently Asked Questions

How do drivers qualify for a Formula 1 race?

The Formula 1 race’s qualifying is done through a knockout format the day of the race. It’s split into three segments – Q1, Q2, and Q3. All drivers start in Q1 and are eliminated after five of the slower cars. From the 15 remaining drivers, another five will be eliminated in Q2. The top 10 move on to Q3, and compete to gain pole position, as well as determine the order in which the first ten positions are placed.

What are the top teams in Formula 1?

Mercedes, Ferrari, Red Bull Racing and other teams have dominated Formula 1 racing for decades. Mercedes has had a long-lasting period of success and has won multiple constructors championships. Ferrari has a rich tradition in the sport and has been a top contender for many decades. Red Bull Racing’s aggressive innovation and competitive spirit has helped it to become a leading team.

Can Formula 1 cars fuel up during a race or a match?

As of the current regulations, mid-race refueling is banned in Formula 1. The rule has been in effect since 2010 for the purpose of improving safety and reducing costs. Now cars must have enough fuel at the start of the race to make it to the finish line. This is a new strategic element that requires teams and drivers alike, to balance speed, efficiency, and fuel weight.

Can Formula 1 Teams test their cars throughout the year?

Formula 1 teams can’t test their cars throughout the year. The FIA has regulated pre-season, in-season, and restricted testing sessions. These limitations are in place to control costs and maintain a level playing field. Teams must therefore make the most out of the limited testing opportunities to prepare their cars and gather data for the races ahead.
