    NATIONALITY: INTERNATIONAL
 
  The Formula One World Drivers' Championship (WDC) is awarded by the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA) to the most successful Formula One racing car driver over a season, as determined by a points system based on Grand Prix results. The Drivers' Championship was first awarded in 1950, to Nino Farina. The first driver to win multiple Championships was Alberto Ascari, in 1952 and 1953. The current Drivers' Champion is Sebastian Vettel, who won his first World Championship in 2010.

A Formula One car can accelerate from rest to 100 kilometer per hour in just 2 second. With an additional second and half, the car will be doing a speed of 160 kilometers per hour. It can hit 300 km/h (186 mph) in less than 8.6 seconds. During acceleration, the car generates an acceleration force equaling 1.45 times earth’s gravitational pull, i.e. 1.45 g. With power to weight ratio typically over 1200 With power to weight ratio typically over 1200 horsepower per tonne, a Formula One car would be theoretically able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just one second. The regulatory authority that controls Formula One has imposed a set of rules to keep development costs low. This includes reducing the maximum rpm to 18,000 and series of other rules so as to improve the engines reliability. A freeze has been imposed on teams from conducting engine development until 2013. An F1 car consumes nearly 75 liters of fuel for traveling 100 kilometers giving it a fuel economy of 3.1 mpg. The engine sucks in about 650 liters of air per second. The Brakes in an F1 consistently reach over 1000 Degree Celsius in every lap of a race. An F1 car can decelerate from 200 km/h (124 mph) to a halt in just 2.9 seconds, traveling just 65 meters. An F1 transmission can change gears within just 0.05 seconds, i.e. one in twentieth of a second. An F1 driver does more than 3100 gear changes in a single race in tracks like Monaca. The highest recorded speed of an F1 caron a race is 369 km/h (229 mph). The unofficial speed record for an F1 car was set by Honda on 6 November 2005 at 413 km/h (257 mph). An F1 driver will be subjected extreme forces while accelerating, braking and cornering. For example, at the turn 8 of the Istambul park circuit where the Turkish GP is held, driver has to sustain a cornering force between 4.5 g and 5.5 g for seven seconds. Aerodynamics in F1 cars are so efficient that when traveling above 100 mph, an F1 car could stick to the surface of a vertical wall.
