Formula I - Schumacher - Despite Ferrari's dominance, Kimi Räikkönen driving for McLaren-Mercedes had a chance of claiming the championship in 2003 right until the end of the season at the Japanese Grand Prix. Juan Pablo Montoya driving for Williams-BMW also came close. Also in 2003, Fernando Alonso became the youngest ever pole sitter by qualifying first at Malaysia. Later that year he became the youngest ever winner of a Grand Prix when he took the chequered flag in Hungary. Schumacher's championship streak finally came to an end on September 25, 2005 when Alonso clinched the 2005 championship with a third place finish at the Brazilian Grand Prix to become the youngest champion to date, replacing previous record holder Emerson Fittipaldi of Brazil. Michael Schumacher had been world champion for more than 1,800 days.
Liking ferraris, toyato and Honda is different from formula I racing. The "formula" in the name is a set of rules which all participants and cars must meet. The F1 world championship season consists of a series of races, known as Grands Prix, held usually on purpose-built circuits, and in a few cases on closed city streets. The results of each race are combined to determine two annual World Championships, one for drivers and one for constructors. It is not yet entered in India, only at amateur level it played in coimbatore, Tamilnadu.

Thanks for explaining. I posted a question about F1 last week but very few people knew what it was. Does F1 use open-wheel cars? I thought they did, but some of the pictures I've been seeing here indicate otherwise.
