World Championship is the highest class of auto racing sanctioned by the Federation International of the Automobile (FIA). The "formula" in the name refers to a set of rules to which all participants and cars must follow. The F1 season consists of a series of races, known as Grand Prix, held on purpose - built circuits, and to a lesser extent, former public roads and with closed city streets. The results of each race are combined to determine two annual World Championships, one for the drivers and one for the constructors, with racing drivers, constructor teams, track officials, organizers and circuits required to be holders of valid Super License, the highest class racing license issued by FIA.
