Formula 1, often abbreviated as F1, is the pinnacle of car racing known for its fast cars, iconic tracks, and competitive drivers. The sport has gained immense global popularity and has been depicted in various movies and documentaries, like "Rush" and the "Formula 1: Drive to Survive" series on Netflix.
