add id attribute tag to a form using jQuery

Hi experts,

I have a html page with a form that looks like this.

    <form name='Form1' method='post' action=''>
        <p>
            Name: <input type='text' name='name' id='name' class='required' />
        </p>
        <p>
            Email: <input type='text' name='email' id='email' class='required' />
        </p>
        <p>
            <input type='submit' name='Submit' value='Submit' />
        </p>
    </form>

I would like to ad an id called Form1 to my form tag.  
I know I can add it like this using html, but I would like to add the id to my form tag using jQuery.

    <form id='Form1' name='Form1' method='post' action=''>
        <p>
            Name: <input type='text' name='name' id='name' class='required' />
        </p>
        <p>
            Email: <input type='text' name='email' id='email' class='required' />
        </p>
        <p>
            <input type='submit' name='Submit' value='Submit' />
        </p>
    </form>


I thought i could add the id to my form tag using something like this but this is not correct.
I don't know what to put where the #sign is

$('#').attr('id','Form1');

Is there a way to say add the id attribute called Form1 to the form with a Name of Form1?

Anyone know how to add the id attribute to a form using jQuery?
