I think, the year 1950 was officially the first F1 season. The first race was held in Silverstone
That would be in 1950. The first F1 race was the 1950 British GP.
The first year an Indian team entered F1 was in 2008(Force India Formula One Team)
Ferrari won its first ever Formula race back in 1951 British GP. The driver who won the race was called Jose Froilan Gonzalez.
The first ever F1 season was in 1950 and Giuseppe Farina won the first round that year, meaning that he won the first ever F1 race.
Renault has been associated with formula one as an engine supplier since the 1970's but they never had a team of their own. In the year 2000, Renault acquired the Benetton team and that was their entry into formula one. In the year 2002, the team as renamed Renault F1 and that was their first ever formula one season. The 2002 Australian Grand Prix was the first ever race for the Renault F1 Team.
If 1950 was the first year, then 2009 is the 60th year!
