Formula One is the top level of open-wheel motor racing in the world today - it is also the one with the most history behind it.

Formula One has progressed over the years from being held on true road circuits such as Spa-Franchorchamps and Rheims which were on public roads between villages, to custom-built race tracks such as the one in Sepang, Malaysia, that was designed purposely for Formula One.
