Formula 1 is an international sport that started in 1950 and became popular in the 1960s. Its origins can be traced back to the early years of the 20th century when British driver James Warriner and Frenchman Louis Chiron created a race car that was powered by a steam engine. The first Formula 1 Grand Prix was held on May 13, 1950 at the Silverstone circuit in the UK.
