Ferrari-statistics: It was already going on worse than 2020 ...

A podium, a double failure, only three points positions in three races: The is the lean between the balance sheet of Ferrari in the formula 1 season 2020. But it is not the worst start to a Grand Prix of the year, the the tradition of the team from Maranello ever did. A glance at the extensive formula 1 history of Ferrari (in formula 1-database lookup shows!).

For example, the Team began the 2006 season with exactly the same basic information, at the time, with Felipe Massa and Michael Schumacher. And after the bumpy start Ferrari came in both Championships still on the second place behind Renault.

in 1993, was the start of the season, however, almost nothing at all wrong with Ferrari's Jean Alesi and Gerhard Berger managed in the three races at the beginning of the year, only a sixth place, and came on four times.

The crass start, most fail, there was 1981

Only slightly better in 1986 Michele Alboreto and Stefan Johansson had to be truncated for Ferrari: four failures, a fourth place. In both cases, there were still in the championship four at the end of the year.

That such a failure must not lead to start-up in a complete failure of the formula 1 season of 1982: Three failures, a disqualification and a sixth place showing hit for Didier Pironi and Gilles Villeneuve after three Grands Prix to beech. Ferrari won the constructors ' championship.

The year before that had not had the same driver the worst Ferrari in the season opener, when the three first race of the season, as the measure apply to the: Pironi and Villeneuve came Once into the target and only at the fourth race in the points. The season of 1981, decided Ferrari to second place in the championship five.

The curious world champion-statistics

And 2020? Another special Ferrari-statistics includes, at least, winning the title by a Ferrari driver: no Ferrari has won since 1950, representatives of the drivers ' title, as long as the most recent Ferrari world champion was still active in formula 1.

examples: Juan-Manuel Fangio was the first world champion to Ferrari (1956), after Alberto Ascari was killed in a car crash (1955). Niki Lauda won the title (1974), as John Surtees had finished his career already (1972). And Michael Schumacher stopped for the first Time (in 2006), before Kimi was Raikkonen for Ferrari, world champion (2007).

These curious statistics suggests that as Long as Raikkonen was still driving, there is no new Ferrari-world champion. The Ex-Champion is until the end of 2020 at Alfa Romeo under the contract.

However, it is kicked Raikkonen back from the formula 1 (2009), and come back. And Lauda (the first withdrawal, prior to winning the title of Jody Scheckter in 1979) and Schumacher before him, the special series was only on the basis of a formula-1-"Pause".
