An innovative car reinvigorates the team and puts them back on par with world champions Mercedes, at least for the first half of the season. But infuriating technical niggles (plus the odd driver error) in the second drop them out of title contention, with an eventual total of five race wins to their rivals’ 12.
The promise of the previous season quickly evaporates as the team find themselves unable to live with Mercedes or Red Bull. Vettel and Raikkonen finish on the podium seven and four times respectively, but poor strategy calls prevent them taking the rare victory opportunities that do present themselves.
Fernando Alonso makes way for Sebastian Vettel and the restructured team improve to become the only serious rivals to reigning champions Mercedes. Thanks to Vettel they achieve their target of three Grand Prix wins, while Kimi Raikkonen struggles to match his new team mate’s results.
Drop to fourth in standings, failing to win for first time since 1993, as F14 T proves uncompetitive even in hands of Alonso and Raikkonen. Domenicali departs as team principal in April, replaced by Mattiaci and then – the day after the season ends – Arrivabene.
Stronger start than in recent years, with Alonso able to compete at front from the off, despite F138 struggling for qualifying pace. Spaniard wins in China and Spain, before mid-season tyre revisions hurt team’s form, dropping them to third overall behind RBR and Mercedes.
Initially recalcitrant F2012 well off pace in opening rounds, but improves rapidly in hands of Alonso, who leads the championship for much of the year. Vettel pips Alonso to drivers’ crown but Massa’s improved form helps the team to second in the constructors’ standings.
Slow start, trailing McLaren and Red Bull and struggling with new Pirelli tyres. Form steadily improves and some spectacular drives from Alonso, including victory at Silverstone, keep him in title hunt for longer than expected. Massa disappoints, failing to finish on the podium once.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Initially play second fiddle to Renault, but Michael Schumacher leads fightback with seven victories. Team move ahead of Renault with just three rounds to go, but rare reliability issues see them beaten to title by just five points.
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.
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.
A much tougher season, but still ultimately unbeatable. A record fifth successive constructors’ title, with Michael Schumacher the first man to take six drivers’ crowns.
