Benefits of Seeing a Live F1 Race
Formula One An Enduring Tradition
For racing enthusiasts, the Formula One Race is one of the most exhilarating and awe inspiring in the world. In the Formula One, cutting edge, automotive wonders converge on the tracks and roads of the world and compete for the grand prix, which is, among other things acknowledged supremacy in the realm of street racing. The 2015 monaco grand prix promises to be no less exciting than previous exhibitions on other tracks and in other realms.
The Cost of Championship
Consider, if you will, the professionalism that goes into putting on Formula One exhibition. Drivers traditionally had to be at the top of their form in their respective class to even be considered for a Super Licence, that all but elusive prerequisite for even being allowed to compete in a Formula One Event. Traditionally a driver had to have several successes at increasingly difficult and demanding venues throughout the world. Competing is just one end of it. The driver must compete, and successfully, at increasingly difficult and arduous levels, in order to be considered for driving in a Formula One Grand Prix. On the other hand, the driver who wishes to take part in the big show must scrupulously adhere to a body of regulations put forth by the FIA, which is the Formula One governing organization, rendered in English, the International Automobile Federation.
An Arduous Journey
The qualifying drivers will then take part in a succession of races on tracks built specifically for that purpose. At some point in the history of Formula One racing, the rules were changed slightly to allow top American drivers, specifically those of the Indy Class, to qualify and take part in the Formula One experience. Traditionally, the Formula One has been a European phenomenon, even as it has branched out to include venues sponsored throughout the world. At some point, the powers that be decided to "diversify" and tweak the FIA rules somewhat to allow American drivers. Whether this was a welcome change or not can be seen in the enduring popularity of the Race. That Formula One is a major draw and a universe unto itself is apparent. Fierce competition for participation in the yearly spectacles has engendered lawsuits galore among constructors of racing tracks and sponsors who, bound by the strict guidelines of the FIA, must limit those who would be an official part of the Formula One. The history of the Formula One is replete with cutthroat competition, intrigue, and the efforts of one man to turn a joyous and exciting, informal shindig of like-minded car enthusiasts into a multi-billion pound industry is enough reading in itself. In the end, the event is eagerly anticipated by die hard racing enthusiasts, and it seems that the drama, political intrigue, back-biting, and borderline hysteria was all worth it. The pay off is grand for all participants, no matter where in the world it is held and regardless of the nationality of the participants. This year's events promise to be no different.
