How Ferrari Started Winning In Formula 1


Ferrari looks set to end its run of disappointing results in F1 after its strong start to the 2022 season.  But the team is no stranger to winning - it's the most historic and successful of all Formula 1 teams, with 15 drivers’ titles and 16 constructors’ crowns putting it well ahead of its rivals. 

This success had to start somewhere...

In the first of our new "A Short View Back to the Past" series, Autosport's Chief Editor, Kevin Turner, takes a look at how Ferrari showed his technical savvy by identifying the major weakness in the legendary Alfa Romeo 158/159 design and producing the 375. 

Thanks to Jose Froilan Gonzalez and Alberto Ascari, the Ferrari 375 ended Alfa’s reign at the top of F1, forced a rule change, and set the Italian team on its way to becoming a legend.
