FIA F1 Barcelona February TESTING II – Scuderia Ferrari Mission Winnow (Test Day 26.02.20)

For many, Ferrari and Formula 1 racing have become inseparable. The only team to have competed in every season since the world championship began, the Prancing Horse has grown from the humble dream of founder Enzo Ferrari to become one of the most iconic and recognised brands in the world.

Success came quickly through the likes of Alberto Ascari and John Surtees, and continued – in amongst leaner times – with Niki Lauda in the 1970s and then Michael Schumacher in the 2000s, when Ferrari claimed a then unprecedented five consecutive title doubles, securing their status as the most successful and decorated team in F1 history…

2018

A case a déjà vu, as Ferrari produce what is for much of the year the fastest package on the grid, and yet are somehow out-raced, out-strategized and out-developed by reigning champions Mercedes. Sebastian Vettel supplies their five season victories – but also some rather costly mistakes.

But infuriating technical niggles (plus the odd driver error) in the second drop them out of title contention, with an eventual total of five race wins to their rivals’ 12.
