Scuderia Ferrari have won the most Formula One Grands Prix

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.[1] 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.[2] 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 221 times. McLaren are second with 182 wins, and Williams are third with 114 wins.[3] So far eight countries have produced winning constructors, apart from six countries regarded as the major competitors also Ireland and Austria, the two countries without large automotive industry. British constructors have won the most Grands Prix, 16 constructors have won 520 races between them. Italian constructors are second with 242 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. Only one constructor (Benetton) achieved victory while racing under two different nationalities.
