Few auto manufacturers hold the reputation the Italian sports car manufacturer Ferrari does. Founded by Enzo Ferrari, Enzo created both the Scuderia Ferrari Racing team in addition to the Ferrari manufacturing company.
Part of what makes Ferrari appealing is how they’ve stayed true to their roots. Enzo Ferrari kept the company in Modena and nearby Maranello. Nowadays, the company is headquartered in Maranello with a unique and compelling Ferrari museum nearby.
Francesco Baracca was a World War I flying ace pilot who died in action during the year 1918. After Enzo’s team won a race, Francesco Baracca’s parents recommended that Enzo adopt their son’s prancing horse logo for his racing team. At the same time, the yellow shield is a nod to Enzo’s hometown.
Fun Ferrari Facts
Only two models of Ferrari’s first vehicle, 125 S, were made. Enzo Ferrari’s efforts in creating the first model were delayed when allied forces bombed his factory in 1944 and 1945. The 125 S ended up winning the Rome Grand Prix as well as the Terme di Caracalla circuit. Ferrari ended up dismantling the parts from the first two models to help build future models.
Ferrari’s classic red coloring came from the fact that the International Automobile Federation assigned all Italian Grand Prix race cars red coloring during auto racing’s early years.
Top Ferrari Drivers
There have been countless Ferrari drivers that have raced and done exceptionally well for the Italian company. Here we highlight a few of the best.
Alberto Ascari won a stunning 13 times for Ferrari during the early 1950s. Ascari is listed third overall on the top winners for the famed Italian racing squad. What’s truly impressive about Ascari is his claim to two podiums during his debut season in 1950.
Niki Lauda holds a stunning 15 wins from the short racing period between 1974 and 1977. Between 1975 and 1977, Lauda was a double world champion.
If it wasn’t for Michael Schumaker, Niki Lauda would hold the number one spot among Ferrari racers. With five consecutive world titles after 2000 and 72 career wins, the choice for number one is evident with Schumaker.
