In Melbourne we witnessed the first double retirement from Ferrari in two years. The last time both red cars were not running at the end was in Australia 2006, with both Michael Schumacher and Felipe Massa out due to race accidents.
Officially, both Raikkonen and Massa retired this time due to mechanical failures, and it's the first time in eleven years (180 races) that this has happened to Ferrari. The last time was in the 1997 British Grand Prix, when a bearing failed on Michael Schumacher's car while Eddie Irvine broke a halfshaft when exiting the pits.
Furthermore, both Ferrari engines failed - a first since Belgium 1994 (227 races ago), when both Jean Alesi and Gerhard Berger were out due to engine failure.
