The spectacular peaks and troughs of Ferrari's cyclical history

Ferrari celebrates its milestone 1000th Formula 1 grand prix this weekend amid one of its periodical storms. Studying the supertimes provides a clearer picture of when it was strongest relative to the competition, and of how its current struggles compare

Ferrari has won 238 world championship grands prix, scored 228 poles, taken 15 drivers' titles and 16 constructors' crowns. All of those are records and the legendary Italian squad, which celebrates 1000 starts at this weekend's Tuscan Grand Prix, is undoubtedly the most famous Formula 1 team.

It's produced some of the most successful, attractive and iconic cars - and its time in F1 dates back to before the world championship began 70 years ago. But Ferrari's history is as much about the failures - some heroic, some not so heroic - as it is about the successes.
