The Ferrari Grand Prix team, which combines tradition and technology like no other, reached an historic watershed in 1988 with the death of its founder at the magnificent age of 90. The last Of the dynastic autocrats, whose involvement in motor racing stretched back almost to the dawn of the sport, Enzo Ferrari had presided over the team that bore his name for more than forty years, master of all he surveyed.
This volume tells the story of the cars that carry the famous Prancing Horse emblem from the marque's first hesitant steps on the Grand Prix stage in the early post-War years through to the end of the complex, high-technology turbo era in 1988. Recalling the technical rationale behind the design of all Ferrari's Grand Prix cars, it also records their memorable racing records in depth, drawing on material from such pivotal personalities as Mauro Forghieri, Harvey Postlethwaite and John Barnard and many other racing luminaries including Niki Lauda. Juan Manuel Fangio, Jody Schecktcr, Patrick Tambay; Chris Amon, Michele Alboreto, Gerhard Berger, Tony Brooks, Clay Rcgazzoni, Carlos Reutemann, Cliff Allison and the late Mike Hawthorn, all of whom contributed to the Ferrari legend with stints behind the wheel of the scarlet Italian Formula 1 cars.
