|2005-06 FIA A1 Grand Prix of Nations|
|Previous: none||Next: 2006-07|
This first season was won by A1 Team France on March 12, 2006.
25 teams, each representing a different country, signed up for the first A1 Grand Prix season. All teams used a control chassis (Lola), engine (Zytek) and tyre (Cooper Avon). The following teams competed in the 2005-06 championship:
 Enrico Toccacelo drove the Pakistan car in Durban after Adam Langley-Khan was injured during practice sessions. However, Pakistan would have not scored any points if Toccacelo had finished in top 10.
The first A1 Grand Prix season consisted of 11 races, all held in different countries. Each race ran over a three day weekend, including a practice session on each of Friday and Saturday before a qualifying session on Saturday, and then two races on Sunday.
The Indonesian Round had originally been scheduled to be held on January 15, 2006, but was postponed due to the death of Sheikh Maktoum bin Rashid Al Maktoum. The replacement date was set as February 12, 2006 (originally scheduled for the cancelled Curitiba race), resulting in effectively switching order with the South African round.
Points in the 2005-06 season were distributed as follows:
- Ten through one points for first through tenth place (10 for 1st, 9 for 2nd, etc...) in the Sprint Race.
