If by use you mean disengage by depressing the clutch pedal , then it's because it is difficult for the starter to turn over the engine when the car is in gear. Also, it's a safety issue, because if the car is in gear when you start it, it could lurch forward, causing an accident. Either the car must be in neutral or the clutch must be disengaged. Even cars with automatic transmissions won't start unless the gear-select lever is in Park or Neutral. Some cars with automatic transmissions even require the driver's foot to be on the brake for the car to start.

Yes. A F1 car has a clutch. It is not like a normal clutch that you see in a normal road car.
