Long-gone are the days of Michael Schumacher's F1 dominance for Ferrari. Following the German's first retirement in 2006, and the departures of Frenchman Jean Todt and Brit Ross Brawn, the Ferrari F1 team embarked on a restructuring with the aim of bringing a more Italian identity back to the team. Unfortunately, in the years forllowing Schumacher and co's exit, just three titles followed: The Drivers' and Constructors' crowns in 2007, and the Constructors' title again the following year.

By the mid-2010s Ferrari had turned into something of a disappointment. One win in 2009 and 2011, a championship run in 2010 curtailed by a bad strategy call, and another run for the title in 2012 in an underperforming car. By 2013 Ferrari were as good as out of the championship picture, and the less said about 2014 the better.

In 2015, with new signing Sebastian Vettel (admittedly, one of Luca di Montezemolo's final acts as Ferrari boss), Ferrari aimed for two wins as it began its road to recovery. It beat that by notching up three wins. Despite a slip in form in 2016, Ferrari were back as serious championship contenders for the first time in a number of years by 2017, and for the first time in a decade, it was able to carry that form through for a second consecutive season in 2018.

Ferrari hasn't won a championship since 2008, but its now looking stronger than it has since then.
