Formula 1, sometimes abbreviated to F1, is sanctioned by the FIA (Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile). It is one of the most followed sports in the world, a Grand Prix that takes place in different locations around the world.
1. The Passion
A person who follows Formula 1 is someone that feels passionate for engines and speed. The only place that a spectator looks when the car speeds up is the track and the boundaries that disappear behind the smoke of the tires and the scorching blow of the exhaust.
2. The Brand
Some people follow F1 because their favourite car brand is competing against others and they love watching the squad they like winning and showing their power. The most followed team is Scuderia Ferrari, followed by Mercedes-AMG.
3. The Pilots
Another reason why many people love this sport is the because of the varied nationality of the pilots. Many of them are Germans, Greeks, English and Polish, but lots of other nationalities race also.
