Formula 1 is one complicated sport. Choosing from the range of tyres to the complications, of course for the layman, in the steering wheel, Formula 1 demands one greater deal of concentration. It is not just that, the races, especially in the middle east, can have a toll on racer's body. They can sometimes lose upto 4kgs of body weight and can lose near to 3 litre of water from their body during a race. So if you still think Formula 1 ain't a sport, God bless your sweet mind. But then again, it isn't it for a driver or even for the constructors. Communication in Formula 1 is as important as it is in real life. And in doing so, the sport has been using flags since almost the beginning. There are a variety of flags in the Formula 1 and every flag has different meaning to it. Even a single colour flag has different meanings.
That being said, here we give a brief explaining of what all those flags actually mean.

So fasten your seatbelts as we are all to take off.

The 2006 F1 season was proving to be a much more evenly contested season compared to 2005 as tire changes returned marginalizing the advantage that the Michelin based teams had over the Bridgestone ones.
The dream team of Ferrari - Michael Schumacher (and Irvine in 1999 when Schumi was injured), Ross Brawn as the technical director, Bryne as the lead car designer and Jean Todt as the team GM had spent the last 3 years challenging Mclaren Mercedes for the championship only to be thwarted at the end of the season.
