I did a Google search to help me understand this, but it didn’t help at all.
I’m baffled, why is it called “an F1 car” and not “a F1 car”?
Anyone with knowledge on this…please share.
If you say ‘f’, it sounds like ‘ef’, which begins with a vowel. So it’s ‘an F1 car’
Whether to use ‘an’ or ‘a’ is just based on how it sounds.
You would say “A Formula 1 car” and not “An Formula 1 car”.
The ‘F’ is pronounced differently in ‘Formula’ and ‘F1′ so that is why there is a difference.
He is an F1 driver. He is driving a F1 car.
He is a F1 driver. He is driving an F1 car.
He is an F1 driver. He is driving an F1 car.
He is a Formula One driver. He is driver a Formula 1 car.
As posted above. F1 is pronounced EFF-ONE hence the need for ‘an’ instead of ‘a’ but you would use ‘a’ if pronouncing FORMULA-ONE in full.
