Grands Prix during World War II
Previous: 1939 Next: 1946

Grand Prix seasons between 1940 and 1945 occurred during wartime and so were limited to a very small number of events. The majority of Grand Prix races during this period were run in South America. The first post-war Grand Prix was run in Paris, shortly after the end of the war.
