Dangers in F1 racing
There are inherent dangers in F1 racing that are worsened by the sport itself. It's obvious that speeding around a track over 100 mph is dangerous, but the design of the car and expectations of wealthy team owners can be just as dangerous. Being a cautious driver in F1 racing isn't as important as being a winning driver. Since safety isn't always the number one priority, the dangers in F1 racing might be ignored. The FIA, Formula One racing's official safety organization, have therefore, imposed a lot of the safety regulations that are in place today.

Formula One Racing Grand Prix Circuits
Formula One racing evolved from early European Grand Prix racing. These early races here held on public streets and some of the current Grand Prix races continue to be held on them. Due to safety concerns associated with street racing, most Formula One racing events are held on circuits designed to meet the specific high performance demands of Formula One racecars.
