The 5 best Ferrari Formula One drivers of all time

Author: anwr Published: January 30, 2020 21:50, Previews: 1314, Comments: 0

Since the Formula One World Championship began in 1950, one team has remained ever present: Ferrari, and in 2020, the Prancing Horse will enter its 1000th F1 race.
There have been many victories - 237 to be exact. Many titles – 16 constructors and 15 drivers’ titles. There has also been plenty of controversies but without doubt, Ferrari have had some of the best drivers ever to grace motorsport sit behind the wheel.
So, who are the top five drivers for the Scuderia in the Italian marque’s Formula One history?

Alberto Ascari – Wins for Ferrari: 13

Italian Alberto Ascari was the first man to win the Formula One world Championship for the Scuderia when he won six straight races in his Ferrari 500 in 1952.

The following season, Ascari carried on where he left off winning five times in 1953 to match Alfa Romeo’s titles in 1950 and 1951.

In 32 starts in F1, Ascari won 13 times all of which came for the Prancing Horse. Tragically, in 1955 Ascari was killed in a high-speed crash during an unrelated testing session but his Ferrari legacy was assured for all of time.


Nigel Mansell – Wins for Ferrari: 3

Nigel Mansell only spent two seasons with the Scuderia but quickly earned the nickname ‘Il Leone’ (the lion) from the ardent Tifosi support for his never give up attitude.

Winning on his Ferrari debut at the 1989 Brazilian Grand Prix in a relatively uncompetitive car was the perfect start but it was later in the season at the Hungarian Grand Prix when the Tifosi took to Mansell as one of their own.

Qualifying his Ferrari in 12th, little was expected from the race. However, lapping two seconds faster than everyone else led to Mansell catching race leader Ayrton Senna and eventually battling past.

To this day, Mansell himself says that was one of his top three races of all time and although just one more race win would follow in the prancing horse for Mansell, he would remain a Tifosi favourite forever.


Gilles Villeneuve – Wins for Ferrari: 6


Villeneuve was described by fellow competitor Jody Scheckter as ‘the fastest man in the history of motorsport’.

Tragically, Scheckter delivered those words at Villeneuve’s funeral in 1982 after a qualifying accident at the Belgian Grand Prix.

However, Villeneuve was adored by Ferrari for his undeniable speed and his attitude for never giving up.

In total he recorded six wins for the Scuderia, and he is still so revered by the Italians there is a corner names after him at Imola – home of the San Marino Grand Prix as well as a Canadian flag painted on the third slot of the grid in his honour.


Niki Lauda - Wins for Ferrari: 15


Niki Lauda is well known for his 1976 Nürburgring crash that left him with severe burns and fighting for his life.

Six weeks later he was back in Ferrari and almost claimed the world title just losing out to James Hunt.

That is only a small part of the story though as in just four seasons, Lauda claimed 15 victories for the Scuderia and two world titles in 1975 and 1977.


Michael Schumacher – Wins for Ferrari: 72


How could it be anyone else? Michael Schumacher wasn’t just the driver behind the wheel in one of the most dominant periods of motorsport history, but the German was the main man driving it all forward.

Not only was Schumacher fast, his attention to detail drove Formula One to levels it had never been before and made superstars and multi-millionaires of everyone.

Five world titles in eleven seasons for Ferrari is the best record of them all and Schumacher’s legacy is undeniable.

Will Lewis Hamilton Move to Ferrari?

Author: anwr Published: July 27, 2019 07:44, Previews: 1425, Comments: 0

  Formula 1 superstar Lewis Hamilton is rumoured to be moving to Ferrari. A Reuter’s report on the story details how Hamilton and Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff have had discussions about it. The five-time F1 champ is currently under contract with Mercedes until the end of 2020, but Wolff has acknowledged that Hamilton might join Ferrari starting 2021.

Source: Twitter
Wolff points to Ferrari’s standing as F1's most famous brand as possibly appealing to Hamilton. “You have to simply acknowledge that probably it’s in every driver’s head to drive at Ferrari one day. It’s the most iconic, historic Formula One brand out there and I totally respect if a driver has the desire to drive at Ferrari,” Wolff explained to reporters at the Spanish Grand Prix.

“Even within the team we have discussed it and with Lewis we have discussed it and we have agreed on the topic,” Wolff added. “We had the discussion when we negotiated the last contract and I think that you just have to be open-minded and understand that drivers will explore opportunities that exist and benchmark themselves.”

Wolff also clarified that Hamilton has not actually made up his mind.

This is mainly because there are very compelling reasons for Hamilton not to leave Mercedes. One of the biggest reasons for Hamilton not moving is to continue his winning streak and beat Michael Schumacher's record of seven F1 championships. Hamilton has won five F1 titles, and is three away from breaking the German legend's record. In a feature by Ladbrokes on Lewis Hamilton’s career, it documents how he won his first world title in 2008 driving for McLaren. He then added four more world championships in 2014, 2015, 2017, and 2018 driving for his current team, Mercedes, where he also built a reputation as arguably the sport's biggest star. He is currently poised to win a sixth title after recently winning the French Grand Prix and the British Grand Prix. At the moment Hamilton is top of the standings and pulling away from his teammate Bottas in second place.

That is why former teammate Jenson Button doesn't think Hamilton leaving Mercedes for Ferrari is a good idea. Speaking to The Telegraph about Hamilton's rumoured move to Ferrari, Button insinuates that going to Ferrari is akin to career suicide. “Lewis could end up with 10 world championships if he stays at Mercedes," Button explains, "but if he goes to Ferrari it might be just that — the end of his career.” Button acknowledges that "every driver wants to race for Ferrari," but is adamant that "no driver in his right would move from a winning team to one that is not competitive."

But after a dominant run with Mercedes, Hamilton might actually be looking for bigger challenges now. At the moment, there seems to be no bigger challenge than bringing Ferrari back to the top of the sport. An accomplishment that would truly mark Hamilton as arguably the best F1 racer in the sport’s history.

So don’t be surprised if Hamilton is indeed driving for Ferrari in 2021.

Author: anwr Published: April 26, 2019 14:41, Previews: 584, Comments: 0

 We know cars, we know our drivers and we know what the potential of winnings mean. Needless to say, we can see how fantasy sports betting on formula 1, or any racing for that matter, can enrapture the audience and become a rising trend as fast as fire catches alight in the wind. But not everyone has seen the full potential of fantasy sports betting and it’s only recently, since the rise of quality online casinos that provide sports bets and other gambling options, which gamblers have begun to understand why sporting fans have widened the gambling pool and created something completely different. So if you wanted to know why and how, you can finally find out the real reason why sports betting, and especially formula 1 sports betting, is a rising trend.

A Battle of Skills


Unlike regular betting, waiting on the luck of a dice, waiting for the tables to turn or hoping the spin of a reel will get you that jackpot you have been eyeing out for the past month, fantasy sports betting is a battle of skills. You may not be able to predict the actual outcome of a race, but you are able to determine what the odds are by your level of knowledge. This empowers bettors and adds a level of confidence no other form of gambling can offer.

Highly Entertaining


It goes without saying that fantasy sports betting is highly entertaining as races are held over a period of days or weeks. This keep bettors an competitors coming back to check scores, understand races better, the drivers better, they begin to form strategies, learning from one another as they race.

Nothing is Impossible


Imagine seeing a race with all the drivers you adore and hate competing against one another, an exclusive race of sorts. In fantasy sports betting, everything and everything is possible. It is where fantasy becomes a reality and probably one of the most likely reasons the past time has become such an online sensation.

Play for Fun


Some betters aren’t interested in betting or creating races for a profit. Online fantasy sports betting offers players a platform where they can compete against one another and still get the thrill but without the looming cloud of losing real cash. This lightens the mood and impacts player’s races, allowing them the freedom to focus on the race at hand in a fun environment.

Play For Money


Then you get those who play to win real money. Here is where the adrenaline is found. Fantasy sports betting is incredibly lucrative and can prove to be the most fun way of spending money on games and getting a kick out of winning. Playing for fun or for money both prove to be rewarding, it just depends on what kind of player you are.

We can now see why everyone wants to be a part of an online fantasy team, and we don’t blame them! Get in on the action while it’s still hot!
