It is one of the great iconic names in motorsport with the power to unite an entire country and a million tifosi from all over the world behind it: the Scuderia Ferrari, the most successful team in the history of Formula 1, turns 90 in 2019. An anniversary that the Ferrari Museum in Maranello has decided to mark with a major celebratory exhibition.
The cars featured in the “90 Years” exhibition are a testament to that glorious history, starting with the Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 Spider, which, in 1932, became the very first car to sport the Prancing Horse as part of its livery, and going all the way to the SF71H, the single-seater Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Räikkönen raced just last season.
In the exhibition, the timeframe separating those two cars is illustrated by a string of unforgettable single-seaters, the stars of hard-fought races, historic victories and sometimes crushing defeats. All of these cars brilliantly encapsulate and epitomise Enzo Ferrari’s dream, and the commitment, determination and passion for innovation of the most successful team in the history of Formula 1. Its tally of 31 World titles (15 Drivers’ and 16 Constructors’) is an unequalled record that the Maranello team continues to defend and honour each season with the same passion as 90 years ago.
The exhibition pays homage of course also to Ferrari victories in enclosed wheel racing.
