Israel, officially the State of Israel, is a country in Western Asia. Israel has very little motor racing heritage, and does not have a national Grand Prix. The country has only produced one Formula One driver, Chanoch Nissany, who at 42 years old drove in a free practice session for Minardi at the 2005 Hungarian Grand Prix, but did not start the race.
