Ferrari celebrated a huge 1-2 win to kick off the new Formula One season.
After three years of below-par performances, Ferrari returned to the podium, with Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz Jr securing the coveted first and second place finish.
Ferrari have underachieved for more than a decade, but it is so far so good for the Italian manufacturers with Bahrain down and 21 races to go.
Here we look at Ferrari’s performances over the years, including their last 1-2 finishe and their last Grand Prix success.
Take a look below:
Ferrari’s last 1-2
Interestingly, Ferrari’s last win was also a 1-2 finish, with Sebastian Vettel coming out on top in the 2019 edition of the Singapore Grand Prix.
Leclerc was also involved in that, finishing second behind his Ferrari teammate.
Previous 1-2 finishes
Other than Singapore in 2019, Ferrari’s 1-2 finishes include Vettel and Kimi Räikkönen’s efforts during the 2016 season, when they achieved it in the Monaco and Hungary Grand Prixes, with Vettel winning each time.
In 2010, Fernando Alonso won the Bahrain Grand Prix, with Felipe Massa coming second, while Massa and Räikkönen achieved a number of 1-2s during their successful spell across 2007 and 2008, racking up top two finishes at Bahrain, Spain and France in 2008 and France, Turkey, Belgium and Brazil a year earlier.
Prior to that was the Michael Schumacher era, and the German helped Ferrari to 28 1-2 finishes across 2000-2006 alone, teaming up with Rubens Barrichello and then Massa for a year, in 2006.
Last Grand Prix win
Ferrari’s last Grand Prix win was the Singapore win during the 2019 season with Vettel, and that was the third straight week of Grand Prix wins.
Leclerc won the Belgian and Italian Grand Prixes in the lead up to Singapore in 2019.
The year prior, Vettel won the the Austrian, Chinese, Canadian, Great Britain and Belgian Grand Prixes, while Räikkönen won the US Grand Prix in the same season.
Ferrari last won championships across the 2007 and 2008 seasons with Massa and Räikkönen at the wheels.
