Seven decades of Formula 1 racing. These were the times of our lives

F1 today is unrecognisable from its first World Championship race in 1950, which was covered in this magazine. Since then, we’ve seen great drivers and teams come and go, political battles and mind-boggling technical advances. But for 70 years, F1 has remained the pinnacle of our sport. To mark this anniversary we asked the world’s greatest motor racing writers to celebrate the world’s greatest motor racing championship.
