    10. F2008

    Ferrari’s most recent constructor’s title to date came in 2008, when Felipe Massa lost the driver’s title in the final turn of the season-ending Brazilian GP when Lewis Hamilton passed Timo Glock. Massa and teammate Kimi Raikkonen won eight races between them in the Ferrari F2008 that year.

    The Ferrari Dino 246 was the first V6-powered car to win a Grand Prix and, in 1960, the last front-engined F1 car to win a Grand Prix. Mike Hawthorn became Great Britain’s first World Champion behind the wheel of the Ferrari Dino 246 in 1958.

    Great choices, here are mine under a slightly different title: "My favorite Ferrari F1 cars"

    1: The 156 "Sharknose"
    Michelangelo would love this stunning piece of art. Enough said
    ferrari156-hill.jpg

    2: The F-92A
    An absolute dog of a car, yes. But it looked like a million bucks, you have to admit it!
    Ferrari-F92A-1992-vista-anteriore.jpg

    3: The 126-C2
    When F1 wasn't only "form follows function"...
    8caabc095e6289282f642d992fc12f1b.jpg

    4: The 126-C3 (launch spec)
    Those sidepods were sex on wheels... at least that's what my still a virgin, 16-year old self thought back then
    1983-Ferrari-126-C3.jpg

    5: The 312T2
    Mauro Forghieri's masterpiece. It also had Niki Lauda, in a red helmet, driving it...
    LaudaNiki19760731Ferrari312T2.jpg

    6: The F2003-GA
    Not as dominant as its predecessor the F2002, or as its follow-up, the mighty F2004... but what a beautiful beast this was. L'Avvocato would've been proud!
    Ferrari-F2003-GA-11585.jpg

    7: The F1-89, a.k.a Ferrari 640
    The first F1 car with a semi-automatic gearbox. These days, even a Smart city car has one. As a bonus, it came with curves even Marilyn Monroe would sold her soul to the devil to have
    6452d54ae26df93911dc8b3b34e5d4eb.jpg

    8: The Ferrari 312B2
    The car (and the driver) that started it all for me
    dcb23f3f8e089291d855030a244c2f84.jpg

    9: The 156/85
    An italian F1 world champion in a Ferrari, 32 years after Ascari? It was that close...
    07-ferrari3.jpg

    10: The Ferrari 668 or whatever it will be called, a.k.a. the 2017 car
    Nobody has seen it (apart from those lucky s at Maranello), but I know I love it already. It's the future, our future, and it'll be bright!

    Being such a technophobe I can't match the excellent efforts shown above, but where is that fabulous spaghetti-exhaust 312 V12 from 1967/8? Awesome in every sense.

    I confess: I like it more than my #8, the 312B2. But I chose that one for sentimental reasons
