The Challenges of F1 Races

Organizing and hosting an F1 race is not an easy task. It requires a lot of resources, planning, and coordination.

F1 races have to comply with the rules and regulations set by the FIA (Fédération Internationale de L’Automobile), which is the governing body of F1.

The FIA sets the technical and sporting regulations that define the specifications of the cars and the conduct of the races. The FIA also monitors and enforces these rules through inspections and penalties.
