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

And now it’s happening again at his current team, but can the rate of progress be matched this year?
OPINION: Ferrari's numerous strategy blunders, as well as some of his own mistakes, have cost Charles Leclerc dearly in the 2022 Formula 1 title battle in the first half of the season. Though he is locked into a deal with Ferrari, few could blame Leclerc if he ultimately wanted to look elsewhere - just as Lewis Hamilton did with McLaren 10 years prior
After being ditched by McLaren earlier in his F1 career Sergio Perez fought his way back into a seat with a leading team. BEN EDWARDS thinks the same could be happening to another member of the current grid
Winner of 13 grands prix including Monaco and survivor of a life-changing plane crash, David Coulthard could be forgiven for having eased into a quiet retirement – but, as MARK GALLAGHER explains, in fact he’s busier than ever, running an award-winning media company and championing diversity in motor racing.
