Ferrari F60 - What was so special about this F1 car?

Asked by Trent

I hear a lot of people talking about the Ferrari F60 Formula 1 car. Why is it significant?

The F60 Formula 1 is significant in that its name celebrates Ferrari's 60th year in Formula 1.

But people talk about it probably for reasons unflattering to Ferrari. In a nutshell, it was not at all a success in its 2009 F1 season, winning just one out of 17 races that year (and scoring just six podium placements during that time); in fact, the F60 F1 car is considered a massive disappointment as a result.

In contrast, its F2008 predecessor won 8 out of 18 races and finished up in 19 podium placements, and as of last season, remains the most recent Ferrari Formula 1 car to win the World Constructors' Championship.

We hope this helps.
