Over the years the main British drivers who have won formula 1 have benn David Coulthard, Lewis hamilton, Nigel mansell and jenson button.
Micheal Schumacher has won the most championships (seven) so i think it is him! Alonzo, for a number of reasons. First, Vettle is not in the running until he can show he can drive a car from behind. Alonzo has won more than one championship and always gets the best from his car, and he does it consi…stently. The great one, Schumi you cannot compare anyone else to him, it is unfair. Hamilton could vie for title as the best, but he and Jenson must win another title in order to challenge Alonzo, tho, Jenson seems to coax a lot out of a car simply by his smooth driving style, which is more streamlined and co-incidently, unique. I'd really like to see what Rosberg could do with a good competitive car, he is consistently beating Schumi and that says a great deal. It is a shame about Kubica, because unlike other forms of racing, F1 is so physically demanding it is questionable if he could ever compete again. Still, if there is anyone who is up to the challenge it is Robert. The rest of the field are seasoned drivers, paid up and/or up and coming rookies which is why we watch every race to see who is coming up. ( Full Answer )
No. The one that is most likely to ever compete in F1 racing is probably Danica Patrick, currently competing in the IndyCar series. The USGPE team that will probably enter the F1 racing scene in 2010 has shown interest in her, but she stated that she wants to focus on IndyCar. I think it would… be very interesting if women would finally compete in F1. Women are usually lighter than men, which is a big advantage in terms of balance of the car. Robert Kubica stated that his car felt a lot better after he lost 5kg of bodyweight.. There have been five female drivers in Formula 1 in the past, however. The first was Maria Teresa de Filippi in 1958, the second Lella Lombardi from 1974 - 1976. These were the only female racers to qualify for a Formula 1 race, and Lella Lombardi is the only one to score (half a point at the 1975 Spanish GP, driving a Cosworth engined March). Divina Galica (1976-78), Desire Wilson (1979) and Giovanna Amati (1992) also entered, but all failed to qualify. ( Full Answer )

Formula One drivers all follow different diets, based on their personal preferences, but general guidelines are as follows: - Plenty of protein (meat, generally white, especially eggs). - Carbohydrates (pasta, bread). - Vitamins and fibers (cereal, fruit, vegetables). - They should avoid ex…cessive fat, carbohydrates and alcohol. A diet would look something like this: Breakfast: Cereal (no milk), fruit 10am snack: Fruit and protein (Heikki Kovalianen likes bread and ham) Lunch: Pasta with tomato sauce (avoid garlic, onions and cream - and limit the amount of sauce) 3.30pm snack: Cereal (no milk), fruit Dinner: [Lightest meal of the day] Meat - preferably fish, with vegetables It is vital that drivers take a day off from their diets - this helps with mind control, because a driver shouldn't be too controlled by his diet.

The main difference is the fact that normal road cars are built to last year's whereas F1 cars are built to last only one or two races. The components in the car are extremely precise and of high quality. Though they may last a number of races, teams opt to change them every race or every alternate …race to ensure that they perform at their peak capacity. Even a 1% efficiency lack might result in another car beating their car on track so teams make sure all details of the car are taken care of. Normal cars are made of sturdy metals whereas f1 cars are made from carbon fibre and lightweight materials so that the bodywork is not very heavy and to ensure super performance on track.

If two drivers are in tie , then the driver with maximum Podiums ( Ist place ) Wins. If both have the same P1 win then it goes to most P2 and P3 and so on.
If there is a tie, the driver that has won the most races in the year is named the champion. If there is a tie for number of wins, the driver with the most second place finishes is named the champion. If there is a tie for wins and number of second place finishes, the driver with the most thir…d place finishes is named the champion. The tie breaker rules work their way down the finishing order until the tie is broken. Going into the final race of the 2010 F1 season, Fernando Alonzo has 5 wins and 246 points, Mark Webber has 4 wins and 238 points, and Sebastian Vettel has 4 wins and 231 points. Incredibly, it is possible that all three drivers could be tied after the final race in Abu Dhabi. For example ... If Alonzo finishes 5th and gets 10 points, Webber finishes 2nd and gets 18 points, and Vettel wins and gets 25 points, all three drivers would end the season with 256 points. The first tie breaker would be number of wins. Alonzo and Vettel would have 5 wins and Webber would have 4 wins so Webber would be eliminated and Alonzo and Vettel would still be tied. The second tie breaker would be number of second place finishes. Alonzo and Vettel both would have 2 second place finishes so they would still be tied. The third tie breaker would be number of third place finishes. Alonzo and Vettel would both have 3 third place finishes so they would still be tied. The fourth tie breaker would be number of fourth place finishes. Alonzo would have 2 fourth place finishes and Vettel would have 3 fourth place finishes. Alonzo would be eliminated and Vettel would be named world champion. ( Full Answer )
