Why Do So Many Great Drivers Fail at Ferrari?

Just driving for the most famous team in the history of F1 and one of the most iconic brands in the world is an achievement within itself, but although Ferrari is hungry for success, countless great drivers and champions in other teams, have failed to bring championships back to Marranello. In this video I look at why some of the greatest drivers of all time failed at Ferrari, and if the team as still doomed to repeat history if they don't change

    You have the question phrased wrong Why do Ferrari fail so many great drivers. Bad strategy terrible engines Stupid suspension that the drivers don’t like. Idiots standing in front of the back tire. The race team suffers from getting paid to much for losing syndrome. Lol

    I think that Ferrari is sinc Schumacher left simply not a top team anymore. They have the resources, they have the passion. But they certanly dont have the right way to do things in this modern era. Like Lauda said: "the car is shit" he then put an hard amount of work to get them winning again. Then there was a long period after Lauda without success. Schumacher too needed a long time before they were winning again. Today its simply not possible anymore to complettly reduce performance gaps so big inside one more or less static regulation period. There is simply not enough room inside the regulations to alter the car from one year to another. So either Ferrari gets the 2022 car done properly or there wont be a ferrari title for a long time again... No matter the drivers

    The question should rather be - why does Ferrari fail so many great drivers? Although Ferrari has a great pedigree, there is no doubt in my mind that they will NEVER win a drivers or constructors championship again. Too much internal politics, and too little inclusivity - the days are gone where the Italians could think that everything and everyone should be Italian and that's why Schumacher was a success.

    Ferrari in F1 is the equivalent to the New York Yankees in MLB, some players or drivers perform great at other teams but once the put those pinstripes or enter the cockpit on that red racer with the prancing horse on they’re doomed to fail you have to be super mentally tough to succeed on both NYY and Ferrari

    Yes truly. His personality, his ability to form a close relationship with those around him. AND yet the tifosi gave him shit for his 'conducting' move on the victory stand when the Italian anthem was playing. He did this out of joy - but they had some issue with it. Never seeing those days again - I wonder how them remember this now.

    nothing to do with the drivers - just the timing of the lottery - Alonso would have won 00-04 like Schui did and Schui would have failed like Alonso did 08 onwards (just as he failed at Merc at the time). Same goes for Prost and the rest of them - its just what car happened to be there at the time - complete and utter lottery.

    Why Arrivabene didn’t make Raikkonen outright no 2? Simple. Because in truth he likes Kimi more than Seb because of Kimi ability to drive fast & while maintaining his composure when under pressure something that Seb didn’t. USGP2018, Bahrain 2016 demonstrate that. That’s why Arrivabene can’t make that difficult decision in managing 2 alpha male in 1 team. Mattia Binotto on the other hand is not a Team Principal material. He can be a James Allison but needs a good no.1 to control the team especially on the political side something which Mercedes were good at with Toto Wolff & James Allison as his right hand man.

    First of all, Ferrari is Italian. Stubborn, short sighted and utterly chaotic. Always searching for someone to blame instead of searching for issues and correct it. They won when they had mentally strong drivers who really led the team, like Lauda or Schuhmacher who were supported by competent managers like Montezemolo or Todt.

    I am dead CERTAIN that a big factor in the friction at the end of Seb's time a Ferrari was the team cheating with the fuel flow cheat and Seb's distaste for competing that way. It was just a few comments he made when asked about it during that whole secret agreement period and the fall out the following season. It would be VERY interesting to see if more comes out about all that and if Seb ever has more to say, perhaps after he retires someday maybe?

    One flaw of this video is how you made it look like ferrari is the only team that does this mistakes, sure ferrari has done many but that's because more time in the sport means more chance of error if u look at McLaren for example they haven't been good for this entire decade, whilst ferrari did compete for titles and in 2017 and 2018 had the best cars.

    1 of the problems of Prost was that Enzo was dead and Nigel was the last to be picked by him. 1 wonders should Nigel of led the team would John Barnard stayed. Prost wanted to start Spain 91 on slicks ferrari said no. Prost went on to finish 2nd so who knows. And 3/5 of His race wins he benefited from Senna's problems Brazil crash, Mexico tyre, France bad pitstop and that how Prost wins in f1 5 retirements kill Alboreto chance of Ferrari WC, 86 Mansell tyre, 89 Senna's bad reliability. 93 being the only driver in a decent car no real opposition as Senna was using Customer Ford engines.

  • Ben Silveston
    Ben Silveston15 dagen geleden

    I think that Ferrari's best-ever period was during the Todt, Brawn, Bryne and Schumacher era (1996-2006). Together over those 10 years, all those four people formed an incredible team and changed both the culture and dynamic of Ferrari. In a way that had never been seen before. Once all of them left, Ferrari had no real direction as to where to go next. Hence the numerous hiring and firings of team principals and other team members in future years. Sadly both Alonso and Vettel partly suffered from this lack of direction and progress and hence why they both ended up being frustrated with the lack of performance from Ferrari as a team. That's not to say of course that both of those drivers were flawless. They both made some bad errors. Alonso with his outspoken views on and off-track and Vettel's numerous mistakes on-track for example. But with a team as badly organised and wayward like Ferrari, you can't blame them both entirely for what they did. The same can be said for Prost during his time with them. Ferrari despite the early progress this season are a long way from winning another WDC and WCC. Even Ross Brawn himself said that. And the latter part tells you everything!

    Prost didnt fail to be fair, he was robbed (rightfully so because of 89) but technically he did all he could to win the championship. Alonso did the same in 2010 and got robbed by his own team. Vettel is the only one who had championship cars in 2017 and 2018 and couldnt even get close to it due to a lot of mistakes.

    You missed Eddie Irvine runner up in 1999 championship Ferrari didn't support him even though M.Schumacher had his leg broken in Silverstone . Again Kimi Raikkonen in hus 2nd Ferrari decade missed a lot without a proper technical equipment. Alonso the same. Not to mention the 90s Jean alesi with an awful car with just 1 victory. So that is a resume of Ferrari blaming drivers
