The Team Scuderia Ferrari has its origins from before the times of the World Wars, relating back to Grand Prix Motor Racing back from the 1920s and 1930s. During the World War, World Racing Championships were suspended, only to return back in 1947 with a new set of rules for the cars and drivers … and a new name. In 1950, the first World Championship racing, what we know now as Formula One debuted at the Silverstone circuit in United Kingdom. And as racing came back to become a sport for the post-war nations, Ferrari continued their of creating better cars for their masterful drivers.
Ferrari is the only team that has competed in Formula One all the way since the first race in 1950 till today. Never missing a season, their team of engineers and race car drivers have always been pushing the boundaries of possible performance, making the brand one of the most successful teams in Formula One racing. This eventually also had a adverse affect on their road-going sports cars, becoming some of the best machines money could buy.
