Ferrari: the birth of the myth
Ferrari is synonymous of Italy. The Ferrari car company was founded in 1947 by Enzo Ferrari, a visionary entrepreneur and racing driver. The automaker was founded in Maranello, a town in the province of Modena and produces luxury sports cars. Ferrari, in addition to producing commercially available cars, is also a racing team that competes in the Formula 1 championship, the most important racing championship in the world for high-speed cars. Just in Formula 1 Ferrari holds the title of the most titled team in the world, with its 15 drivers titles and 16 constructors titles, as well as one of the most successful in the competitions for Sport, Prototype and Gran Turismo cars. Ferrari has collected 224 Grand Prix victories, with 81 one-two podium finishes. True Top Team results! The sporting origin of the Ferrari brand, however, is prior to the birth of the car manufacturer and dates back to 1929, when Enzo Ferrari gave life to the team that bears his name in the city of Maranello. Initially, Ferrari drivers raced with cars equipped with engines supplied by the Italian car manufacturer Alfa Romeo. After two years of suspension, in 1939 the team was reborn from its ashes as a phoenix, taking the name Auto Avio Costruzioni. Only in 1947 did it take the official name of Scuderia Ferrari, giving life to the history we know today. Among the most important drivers who have climbed aboard a Ferrari are Alberto Ascari, Juan Manuel Fangio, Niki Lauda, Michael Schumacher, Kimi Raikkonen, Rubens Barrichello, Fernando Alonso, Clay Regazzoni, Gilles Villenueve, Sebastian Vettel, Felipe Massa, till to Charles Leclerc.
The Prancing Horse: a brand of excellence
Ferrari's hallmark is the Prancing Horse: impossible not to recognise it. The origin of the symbol comes from the one used by the Italian aviator Francesco Baracca during the First World War. The trademark was given by Baracca's family to the entrepreneur Enzo Ferrari as a good-luck symbol, becoming the definitive symbol of the car manufacturer and the team of the same name. The yellow colour chosen for the background behind the Cavallino was chosen by Enzo Ferrari himself because it is one of the main colours of the city of Modena, whose flag is made up of the colour yellow and the colour blue.
