List Of Formula One Grand Prix Winners (constructors)
Formula One, abbreviated to F1, is the highest class of open wheeled auto racing defined by the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA), motorsport's world governing body. The "formula" in the name refers to a set of rules to which all participants and cars must conform. The F1 world championship season consists of a series of races, known as Grands Prix, held usually on purpose-built circuits, and in a few cases on closed city streets, the most famous of which is the Monaco Grand Prix in Monte Carlo. The results of each race are combined to determine two annual World Championships, one for drivers and one for constructors.
Ferrari hold the record for the most Grands Prix victories, having won 219 times. McLaren are second with 182 wins, and Williams are third with 114 wins. So far eight countries have produced winning constructors. British constructors have won the most Grands Prix, 15 constructors have won 518 races between them. Italian constructors are second with 240 wins between five constructors. French constructors are third, having won 53 Grands Prix between three constructors. During the first four championship seasons (1950-1953), only Italian constructors won championship races, with the exception of the Indianapolis 500. Five seasons (1973, 1986, 1991, 1992 and 1993) witnessed wins of only British constructors. Since the first win for a British constructor in 1957, British constructors have won races in every season except 2006.

“The two real political parties in America are the Winners and the Losers. The people dont acknowledge this. They claim membership in two imaginary parties, the Republicans and the Democrats, instead.”
—Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. (b. 1922)
“I am opposed to writing about the private lives of living authors and psychoanalyzing them while they are alive. Criticism is getting all mixed up with a combination of the Junior F.B.I.- men, discards from Freud and Jung and a sort of Columnist peep- hole and missing laundry list school.... Every young English professor sees gold in them dirty sheets now. Imagine what they can do with the soiled sheets of four legal beds by the same writer and you can see why their tongues are slavering.”
—Ernest Hemingway (18991961)
“My formula for greatness in human beings is amor fati: that one wants to change nothing, neither forwards, nor backwards, nor in all eternity. Not merely to endure necessity, still less to hide itall idealism is mendacity in the face of necessitybut rather to love it.”
—Friedrich Nietzsche (18441900)
“Loneliness is more likely to lead to fussy housekeeping than to grand views of the Universe.”
