For 67 years Grand Prix racing has sat at the pinnacle of world motor sport. First organised in 1950, the FIA Formula 1 World Championship now embraces more than 900 races; the 2017 Formula 1 Rolex Australian Grand Prix held between 23-26 March will be the 22nd race staged in Melbourne and the 33rd in Australia.
The inaugural World Championship included just seven rounds, but one of them was the famous Indianapolis 500 and was included only to enhance the global status of that original series. The other six Grands Prix reflected the sports European origins, starting at the windswept Silverstone circuit in England and ending on the sweeping banked curves of Monza in Italy.
Nowadays the World Championship encompasses virtually every continent on the planet, with 20 races the modern rule rather than the exception. F1s reach extends from Australia to Abu Dhabi, with stops in places like the USA, Mexico, Singapore and other exotic locations.
