Ferrari is one of the world’s most prominent luxury sports car brands and, while it offers a diverse range of performance vehicles for recreational driving purposes, the Italian company’s origins are directly tied to racing.
The first-ever Formula 1 (F1) World Championship took place in 1950. Since then, Ferrari has been the only race car manufacturer to participate in every F1 World Championship. Since that time, 38 drivers, including Sebastien Vettel and Michael Schumacher, have registered at least one race victory while representing Ferrari. While those 38 drivers were or are professionals, Ferrari doesn’t limit its racing opportunities to accredited F1 drivers.
In order to better serve its more adventurous clientele, the company manages the Ferrari Challenge series, through which Ferrari owners can participate in racing series events throughout Europe, the United Kingdom, Asia-Pacific, and North America. It also operates Corso Pilota, a driving school that offers programs tailored to different driving demands and expectations.
