Formula 1 and Ferrari: a Natural Pairing

Formula 1 — also known as F1 or Formula One — is the top class of single-seater auto racing sanctioned by the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA), or the International Automobile Federation. Every Formula 1 race is governed by an extensive set of rules and regulations to ensure that all vehicles compete on a level playing field that enables automakers’ vehicles to display their full potential.

Ferrari’s participation in Formula 1 racing dates back to 1950, when the 275 F1 and 340 F1 single-seaters were driven in the second race of the World Championship. Ferrari also happens to be the oldest active Formula 1 team, and has earned its status as one of the premier automakers as these events — it’s part of the so-called “Big Four,” which also features Renault, Williams, and McLaren. Cars and drivers representing the Big Four won every single Formula 1 World Championship from 1984 to 2008 and every Constructors’ Championship from 1979 to 2008, securing these brands’ places as giants in the sport.

Ferrari Formula 1 Drivers

Ferrari’s Formula 1 racing team is named Scuderia Ferrari, and it’s headlined by Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc (who replaces Kimi Räikkönnen for 2019).

  • Sebastian Vettel has earned 52 first-place finishes among four World Championships and 220 Grands Prix entered. He holds numerous Formula 1 records, and has been one of the most dominant drivers in F1 racing since his mid-20s.
  • Charles Leclerc is young up-and-coming driver with huge expectations. Boasting GP3 and F2 titles in successive years, Leclerc has earned a place alongside the legendary Vettel — a fact all the more surprising considering Ferrari’s typically cautious approach to signing relatively raw talent.

With Sebastian Vettel’s experience alongside Charles Leclerc’s tremendous potential, Scuderia is poised to be one of the most exciting Formula 1 teams in 2019!
