Scuderia Ferrari’s 90th Anniversary
Scuderia Ferrari celebrated its 90th Anniversary in November 2019, a team that began with Enzo Ferrari’s ambitions and has grown to become of the most storied auto racing teams in the world. Today we celebrate the achievements of nine decades in the racing spotlight, and we look forward to the many decades more!
What Does “Scuderia Ferrari” Mean?
Scuderia means “stable” in Italian, while “Ferrari” is the last name of Ferrari’s founder. The famous Prancing Horse logo has origins that go back to 1692; in 1923, the symbol was entrusted to Enzo Ferrari, and it has graced every Ferrari vehicle since.
History of Scuderia Ferrari
Scuderia Ferrari’s history truly begins in 1908: that’s when Ferrari founder Enzo Ferrari attended his first race with his father and brother. At the age of ten, the passion for automobiles and what they could do was instilled within him, eventually leading to the creation of the Scuderia Ferrari racing team. Enzo’s own racing career began in 1919, and within four years he had already won a championship.
It wasn’t until 1929 that Scuderia Ferrari as we know it began to take shape. In November of that year, the organization was founded as Alfa Romeo’s racing team. It wasn’t until 1939 that Enzo Ferrari began to build sports cars of his own, and the Prancing Horse’s stunning racing history speaks for itself.
Scuderia Ferrari was a competitor in the first Formula One Championship in 1950 — and it’s the only team to have competed in every season of the Formula One World Championships. In that time, the team has earned 16 Constructors’ Championships, 15 Drivers’ Championships, and 237 race victories.
Scuderia Ferrari’s most successful driver has been Michael Schumacher, winning 72 Grands Prix and 5 drivers’ titles during his time with the team. Mick Schumacher, Michael’s son, is currently honing his skills with the Ferrari Driver Academy, and is considered to be an exciting up-and-coming driver who is expected to join Scuderia Ferrari before long.
Currently, the two primary drivers for Scuderia Ferrari are Charles Leclerc and Sebastian Vettel.
