April 14, 2019 -- Formula One, formally established in 1950, celebrates its 1,000th world championship race at the Chinese Grand Prix, staged on the Shanghai International Circuit.

Just two countries, Great Britain and Italy, have staged a World Championship Grand Prix every season since Formula 1’s inception in 1950. Monaco, Belgium and Germany round out the top five circuits in terms of race numbers.

Italian driver Giuseppe Farina claimed the first Formula 1 Grand Prix, held at Silverstone, and went on to win the inaugural World Championship.

Michael Schumacher has the most F1 race victories with 91.

British driver Lewis Hamilton is the current Formula One World Champion. He claimed his fifth world title last season, racing for Mercedes.

The Formula One World Championship, the premier class of motor racing, is organised by the governing body of international motorsport, the Federation Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA).


NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era, coming soon…

And it will be worth the wait! The Graphic News website is undergoing a complete redesign. The new site will not only see improvements in terms of speed and user experience, but will also include many new features. For example, existing subscribers will be able to manage their accounts online via a group dashboard, and add selected graphics to lists for project planning (and which can be shared across the group).

Existing users will need to register individually - we’ll be sending instructions to our main contacts at each group and will be on hand to help you through the process, which we hope will be seamless!
