Ferrari, a promise in search of redemption
Ferrari is the most successful and decorated team in Formula 1 history, and the only one 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 recognizable brands in the world.
Success came quickly through drivers like Alberto Ascari and Juan Manuel Fangio, and continued, in difficult times, with Niki Lauda in the 1970s and then with Michael Schumacher in the 2000s, when Ferrari claimed an unprecedented five titles in a row.
After a difficult year, in 2021 there was still no sign of a title challenge. However, the team had a strong improvement that lifted them above McLaren to position P3 overall, with more than double the points from 2020.
The newcomer Carlos Sainz beat Charles Leclerc, achieving four podiums in front of one of his teammate.
In February, Ferrari presented its challenger for the 2022 Formula 1 world championship: the F1-75. Its name reflects the company's celebration of the 75th anniversary of its founding, which falls this year.
Features a new shade of red, specially developed by the Ferrari Style Centre, and the anniversary is reflected in the celebration logo, along with the Italian flag, which has long been a feature in Ferrari Formula 1 cars.
The F1-75 has a completely new look, the result of the Maranello engineers' interpretation of the new technical regulations that come into force this year.
The design phase was approached with an innovative and unconventional approach. Among the elements that stand out; a lower nose, and the body where special attention has been paid to the packaging of the power unit and its accessories, to achieve the best possible aerodynamic performance.
Once again, the driving duties fall to the pair first seen last year, Monegasque Charles Leclerc and Spaniard Carlos Sainz.
Having struggled to compete with Mercedes and Red Bull in recent years, the change in regulations for 2022 will give Ferrari the opportunity to fight for its first world championship since 2008.
