Team History

2011
Average start to the season with reasonable points, but again playing catch-up to Red Bull & McLaren. Canada showing was particularly bad for the team, with some Technical staff changes following. Much improved for Europe, but more points could have been netted for the team if Massa had not been held-off from a pit stop by Alonso.
2010
Strong start with Bahrain win, but soon playing catch-up to Red Bull & McLaren. Mid-season revival brings title boost, but Hockenheim team orders overshadow success. Miss out on constructors’ glory and Alonso beaten to drivers’ title, despite starting final race as favourite.
2009
Never in title contention due to rivals’ superior progress, Massa’s life-threatening accident (and stand-ins’ dearth of pace), and lack of development as they opt to focus early on 2010. More competitive mid-year, with Spa win for Raikkonen, who’s dropped for Alonso for 2010.
2008
Eight wins help power them to their 16th constructors’ title, beating McLaren by 21 points. Felipe Massa misses out on drivers’ championship by a single point to Lewis Hamilton, despite winning more races.
2007
Win intense battle with McLaren, on track and in court. Kimi Raikkonen takes drivers’ title after late-season surge in form. Also wrap up constructors’ championship after McLaren found guilty of benefitting from possession of confidential Ferrari data.
2006
Initially play second fiddle to Renault, but Michael Schumacher leads fightback with seven victories in his final Formula One season. Team move ahead of Renault with just three rounds to go, but rare reliability issues see them beaten to title by just five points.
2005
Struggle with new regulations, in particular those requiring tyres to last through qualifying and race. Seven podiums, including one victory at Indianapolis, where Michelin withdrawal leaves six-car field. Finish third in constructors’ standings.
2004
Lose just three times in 18 races to take the constructors’ crown for the sixth year in a row. An incredible 13 victories for Michael Schumacher sees him take championship number seven.
