I'm creating a F1 manager, print & play game (it will by free), can I use real names of teams, drivers, sponsors and name of "Formula One"?

Short answer: Who cares?

Longer answer: Legally, maybe you can't, I don't know. But it is extremely unlikely that this will ever come to the attention of any of the interested parties. A free PnP game will not be even a blip on their radar. Even if they do find out and care about it, the maximum you will get is a cease-and-desist letter demanding that you stop distributing the game. I'd just go for it.
