Before Formula 1 World ChampionshipEdit
When the dominant Alfa Romeo squad pulled their factory team out of competition in 1933, the manufacture allowed former driver Enzo Ferrari to run the team and develop the cars under the Scuderia Ferrari banner.
Ferrari was successful during this time but with the emergence of Auto Union and Mercedes, the Alfa Romeo's were no longer the fastest machinery around, still, numerous wins were achieved during this time.
In 1939, Scuderia Ferrari split from Alfa Romeo and started to produce his own cars prior to the start of the war.
In 1947, Ferrari produced the Tipo 125 with a 1.5 Litre engine, this was the first racing car to bare the Ferrari name and was ran under the Scuderia Ferrari banner, as well as being sold to privateers like Peter Whitehead.
The drivers achieved limited success prior to the start of the 1950 World Championship season.
Formula 1 World ChampionshipEdit
1950EditFerrari would be part of the inaugural World Championship in 1950, and became the only team to compete in every season in the history of the sport. They started the season with the supercharged Ferrari 125, with regular drivers being Alberto Ascari and his mentor Luigi Villoresi. Frenchman Raymond Sommer would also make appearances in a third car at certain events.
The team withdrew from the opening round at Silverstone due a dispute about starting money, so would make its debut at the following round in Monaco. The team missed the opening practice session, where the top five spots on the grid were decided, so Ascari and Villoresi lined up sixth and seventh respectively. Sommer was ninth in the third car.The Ferraris would survive the first lap pileup that would eliminate two of the dominant Alfa Romeos, taking up the three places behind the race leader Fangio. Ascari and Villoresi battled over second place, swapping positions multiple times, although Villoresi would retire from the race leaving Ascari to take the teams first podium. Sommer also looked likely for a podium but was overtaken by Chiron's Maserati, so finished fourth.
Like the rest of the regular Grand Prix teams, Ferrari missed the Indianapolis 500, so returned for round 4 in Switzerland. Raymond Sommer would be called up in a third car again, this time using the Ferrari 166, with which he won the supporting F2 race. It was a poor showing for the team, with all three cars retiring before half distance.
Ferrari would not make use of Sommer's services again, and the Frenchman would return to driving both works and private Talbot Lagos for the rest of the season. For the Belgian GP, Ascari had a new car, the Ferrari 275, which unlike the 125, was normally aspirated. He scored points with it in fifth place, while Villoresi finished a place behind int he older car.
The team withdrew from the French Grand Prix during practice due to the poor pace of its drivers, both with the newer 275 model. Another new car, the 375, was introduced and tested at Geneva. It was good enough to be taken to the season finale at Monza. Villoresi was unfortunately involved in a traffic accident at the test, and as a result could not race in Italy. Ferrari asked Raymond Sommer back, but organisers would not allow it, so Ferrari recruited former bike racing star Dorino Serafini to drive the car.
The new Ferrari 375 was strong and allowed Ascari to really race the Alfa Romeos for the first time, flying away at the front with Nino Farina in the Alfa. When the Alfa pitted, Ascari led for several laps until he retired the car. Ascari then took over Serafini's car, which was running third, and passed the Alfa Romeo of Luigi Fagioli for second. This was Serafini's only Formula 1 race, which gives him the unique distinction of being the only driver have a 100% podium strike rate.
Ascari finished the championship 5th with 11 points, the second highest non Alfa Romeo driver. Sommer and Serafini shared thirteenth place with several other drivers, while Villoresi was unranked, failing to score at all.
Privateer Entries Edit
Peter Whitehead drove his Ferrari 125 in three championship rounds in 1950. He had hoped to appear at his home race at Silverstone, but like the works Ferraris, he withdrew due to a starting money dispute. He reappeared at Reims, and was the only Ferrari on the grid due to the withdrawal of the works team, although he qualified down in 19th place. In a race of high attrition, he climbed his way up the field to eventually finish on the podium in third place. He drove in the final race at Monza and finished seventh, his podium in France placing him in ninth place in the Championship.
Italian Clemente Biondetti uniquely put a Jaguar sports car engine in a Ferrari 166S, and entered his home race. He qualified 25th and retired from the race with engine failure, marking the only time a Ferrari has appeared in the Championship without a Ferrari engine.
