From Formula One to Formula Ford

Many Formula One drivers begin their careers in lower-level motorsport categories, such as Formula Ford. Formula Ford is considered an entry-level category in open-wheel racing. It serves as a stepping stone for young drivers to progress to higher levels of motorsport, such as Formula Renault and GP3, before eventually reaching Formula One.

Formula Ford cars are relatively inexpensive, making them a good choice for drivers starting in motorsport. The cars are powered by Ford 1600cc "Kent" engines and feature aerodynamic wings and slick tires, making them faster than cars in other entry-level categories, such as karting. They can even beat a top-of-the-line Porsche around a track.

Some famous F1 drivers began their careers in Formula Ford and progressed to higher categories and ultimately to F1, such as Lewis Hamilton, Jenson Button, and Ayrton Senna. It's worth noting that there are other paths to F1, too. Some drivers start in karting, some in touring cars, some in single-seaters, and some even in rally. However, many of these drivers who came through karting and other motorsport categories often went through Formula Ford.

Do you know the next potential Hamilton? This is their ideal day, with tight cockpit, open wheels, sensitive gears and a track that's just inches below. Formula Ford is the route to driving in the very fast lane.
