1949 Grand Prix season
Previous: 1948 Next: 1950

The 1949 Grand Prix season was the fourth post-war year for Grand Prix racing and the final year before the beginning of the Formula One World Championship. Races were run to a formula which restricted engines to 1.5 litres supercharged or 4.5 litres naturally aspirated; the formula was called Formula A, but would be renamed to Formula One in 1950.[citation needed] There was no organised championship in 1949, although several of the more prestigious races were recognised as Grandes Epreuves by the Association Internationale des Automobiles Clubs Reconnus (AIACR).
