The 2021 F1 in Schools India National Final, presented by STEM Club India and Time of Sports, ended on August 14, 2021. The F1 in Schools India program, which is in its fourth year, has virtually come to an end due to ongoing pandemic challenges .
At the national championships, the Quantum Racing team, the Amity International School team, Saket, won the challenge. The first runner-ups were Team Helios Racing, Jodhamal Public School from Jammu, followed by Team Visionario Ferrari, Gurukul The School from Ghaziabad. The top three teams will represent India at the upcoming World Finals, where teams from over 51 countries will compete for the title.
F1 in Schools is a global Formula 1 education initiative for students ages 9-19 working in teams of 3 to 6 to design and manufacture a miniature car from an official F1 model block using CAD / CAM construction tools. F1 in Schools is the world’s biggest STEM challenge and currently lives in 51 countries.
This year’s national finals event started with a virtual assessment, followed by live races where 300 students interacted with judges on ZOOM. This year the event was organized online due to the coronavirus pandemic. Even in this difficult time, the students participated with the same zeal and developed brilliant ideas and innovations throughout the event.

The winners of this year’s F1 in Schools India National Final are:
National champions: Team Quantum Racing – Amity International School, Saket
First second: Team Helios Racing – Jodhamal Public School, Jammu
Runner-up runner-up: Team Visionario Ferrari – Gurukul The School, Ghaziabad
Next year, the national final will take place in early 2022. This will be a unique opportunity for the participating teams as it’s all a lot easier to reach Nationals. Otherwise, students must win city and regional championships to reach Nationals. Top teams from last year will go straight to the 2022 physical national final and the rest will be screened (virtual final) and qualified teams will advance to the physical national final. However, all of this is subject to the coronavirus situation.
In June 2021, 3 Indian teams took part in the Aramco F1 in Schools World Finals and received 3 major awards and 5 nominations.
Team Blaze, an all-girls team from the British School, New Delhi, has won 2 major category awards (Best Team Identity, Best Project Management Award) and was among the top 10 teams in the world. 44 teams from more than 25 countries worldwide took part in the final round.
Regarding the closing of the event, Yashraj Singh, Country Chief – F1 in Schools India and CEO – Time Of Sports, thanked all parents and school authorities for their support and incredible energy.
“The kind of talent we get and see in the students is just amazing. We are proud of our students for their accomplishments in the latest F1 in Schools World Finals and also for the enthusiasm of the students in the F1 in Schools national finals When the India chapter of F1 in Schools was launched, we hadn’t seen such an overwhelming response and participation from across India. We are thrilled to see so much latent talent in these teenagers. From developing their cars to learning, how to brand and promote yourself through marketing. It’s not just about that day. It takes a full year of preparation to enter the competitions, “said Singh.
