Formula 1 and interesting things

This is a prestigious sporting event, being likened to the Grand Slam tennis system by the world. The Formula 1 annual event held by the company is the Formula One organization, under the management of the International Automotive Federation, including Grands Prix races in many different locations.

Initially the GPs only held in Europe, but in this season 2018, 11 out of 21 races take place outside the old continent. The results of each GP tournament are combined to determine two annual World Championships, one for riders and one for racing teams.

Tournaments are organized either in a dedicated track, or on the street in a certain street. The Monaco Grand Prix, which takes place at the Circuit de Monaco, is a race built on the streets of Monte Carlo and La Condamine in Monaco, which is considered the most celebrated public street GP in this tournament system.

The Circuit de Monaco is 3.3 km longer and the riders will have to run 78 rounds to complete this long race over 260.28km. Viewers will watch on the mobile stands behind the roadside or from buildings on the track. Singapore first hosted the Grand Prix in 2008 at Marina Bay Street Circuit, and marked the first two times: the first night race in F1 history, and the first street circuit in Asia.

Forbes magazine believes that hosting a GP is one of the occasions to promote the nation or the city to the most powerful global. The 2017 article cites data from the Independent (UK) newspaper saying 390 million people watched F1 racing on television a year earlier, turning GP prizes into one of the world’s most viewed sporting events.

This is understandable for the street racing, because the background when it is the urban landscape, the outstanding buildings of the venue, these images will catch the eyes of hundreds of millions of viewers all over. bridge. This is different from other sports, including football, when the background is just the audience filled with spectators.
