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. 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 , held usually on purpose-built circuits, and in a few cases on closed city streets. The World Constructors' Championship is presented by the FIA to the most successful F1 constructor over the course of the season through a points system based on individual Grand Prix results. Constructors' Championship points are calculated by adding points scored in each race by any driver for that constructor. Up until , most seasons saw only the highest-scoring driver in each race for each constructor contributing points towards the Championship. The Constructors' Championship is won when it is no longer mathematically possible for another constructor to overtake another's points total regardless of the outcome of the remaining races, although it is not officially awarded until the FIA Prize Giving Ceremony held in various cities following the conclusion of the season. The Constructors' Championship was first awarded, as the International Cup for F1 Manufacturers, in to Vanwall. Out of the 170 chassis constructors that have entered an F1 Grand Prix, a total of 15 have won the Championship in its 62 seasons. Ferrari holds the record for the highest number of World Constructors' Championships victories, having won the title on 16 occasions. Williams is in second position with nine Constructors' Championships and McLaren is in third with eight titles. With 16 titles, Ferrari has amassed the highest amount of Constructors' Championships as an engine manufacturer, followed by Renault, Ford, Mercedes and Honda with twelve, ten, nine and six titles, respectively. Mercedes holds the record for the most consecutive constructors' titles with seven between the and the seasons. All but 17 titles have been won by chassis that were designed and constructed in the United Kingdom. On ten occasions, the World Constructors' Champion team has not contained the World Drivers' Champion for that season. Among drivers that have contributed with at least a single point to the constructors' title, Michael Schumacher has contributed to the most with seven constructors' titles, six of those consecutively with Ferrari.
