About Formula One

Formula One, often referred to as F1 and Formula 1, is a form of open wheeled auto racing that began in 1950. Races, usually known as Grand Prix take place all around the world on purpose built circuits as well as temporary street circuits.

Many of the world's top car manufacturers compete in F1. The new cars are capable of speeds up to 225 mph, are turbo-charged, and rev to up to 15000RPM.

The 2010 season received a global audience of 527 million people. Around 100,000 people attend each Grand Prix in person.

A Formula One race is typically 305 km in length (190 miles) and lasts around one and a half hours.

The 2012 Italian Grand Prix was the thirteenth race of the 2012 Formula One Season and the 63rd Italian Grand Prix as a round of the Formula One World Championship. It was held at the Autodromo Nazionale Monza.

After his accident at the Belgian Grand Prix, Romain Grosjean was given a one-race ban; his seat at Lotus being taken by Jérôme d'Ambrosio.

After setting the pace in the first two qualifying sessions, Championship leader Fernando Alonso encountered an issue and qualified in tenth place, and Lewis Hamilton took pole position, with teammate Jenson Button alongside on the front row.

In the race, Hamilton won with relative ease, ahead of a quick Sergio Pérez, who had carved through the field on an alternate tyre strategy. Button had retired mid-way through the race; as a result, Alonso managed to take third place, a place ahead of teammate Felipe Massa. The Red Bulls had a disastrous race, both driving failing to reach the flag. Nico Rosberg of Mercedes, who two-stopped, set the fastest lap.

As a result of the race, Alonso increased his Championship lead, and Red Bull's lead was almost halved.
