There are lots of new F1 fans these days, so I thought I'd create a post on the basic rules of the sport for reference.

Formula 1 (F1) is a single-seater motorsport competition where teams compete in a series of races (known as Grand Prix) to determine the world championship winner. Here are the key rules:
  1. Cars: Each team provides two cars that must meet certain technical regulations set by the governing body (FIA).
  2. Drivers: There are 20 drivers who compete in each race, with the top 10 finishers earning points.
  3. Points System: Points are awarded to the top 10 finishers in each race. The driver with the most points at the end of the season is crowned the world champion.
  4. Qualifying: Before each race, drivers take part in a qualifying session to determine the starting grid.
  5. Race: A race is typically around 300 km long and consists of multiple laps. During the race, drivers make pit stops to change tires and refuel.
  6. Safety Car: If there is an incident on the track, the safety car may be deployed to slow down the cars.
  7. Penalties: If a driver breaches the rules, they may receive a penalty such as a time penalty or a drive-through penalty.
  8. Tyres: Teams must use two types of tires (dry and wet) during a race, and they have a limited number of each type to use over the weekend.
These are the basics of F1 racing, but there are many other regulations and nuances to the sport.
