The Formula One Archives


The history of Formula One Grand Prix racing consists of much more than the World Championship. There were a plethora of non-championship races during the 1950's and 1960's, as well as national Formula One championships such as the British Aurora series. This page attempts to chronical the entire grand prix scene, but we have to start somewhere, and we will start with the World Championship itself.

N.B. - Between 1952 and 1953 the world championship was run under F2 rules, and from 1950-1960 points scored at the Indianapolis 500 counted towards the world championship.


Non-Championship F1 Races

In parallel with the early World Championship Formula 1 series, there were many non-championship races held in many countries. Towards the end of the 1960s these races started to die out, although the Race of Champions lasted until 1983.

What follows is the most complete results for each year that I have. They are not comprehensive, and I hope to add further to them as time progresses.
