From Suzuka 1999 to Suzuka 2003: Nine Ferrari world titles! The Ferrari Yearbook relives the emotion of yet another exciting Formula 1 year. The F2003-GA, dedicated to Giovanni Agnelli, did not let the side down and, driven by Michael Schumacher, brought the Scuderia Ferrari victory in the Constructors’ and the Drivers’ championships. Ferrari is the first team in F1 history that can boast five consecutive Constructors’ Championship wins. This precious volume recalls 2003 from various angles. Pride of place is given to the 612 Scaglietti, the new 12 cylinder model that will be officially presented at the Detroit Motorshow in January 2004. The new 2+2, constructed entirely in aluminium, has in its DNA genes that derive from competition. The gearbox, aerodynamics and active safety systems all come from the racetrack. For Ferrari, Formula 1 is an advanced research lab and the success that the Scuderia has enjoyed is the proof of this. Commercial returns equal the sporting highs, obtained by the GT cars, from the Challenge Stradale to the 575M Maranello, are due to the global commitment of the House of Maranello, inside and outside racing. The yearbook details the important events of this extraordinary 2003 season.
The extraordinary excitement of the Formula 1 season is detailed in the Ferrari annual.

Ferrari is the first F1 team to win six back-to-back consecutive Constructors’ titles. This precious volume explores each aspect of Ferrari’s 2004 season but it also reserves a place of honour for the F430, the new 8 cylinder that has substituted the mythical 360. The F430 bears the fruits of Formula 1 technology. Included are the evolutions applied from the world of competition, from the changes wrought to the single-seater steering wheel over the past few years to the mechanics, the gearbox, the aerodynamics and the active safety features. For Ferrari, Formula 1 is an advanced research laboratory and the ongoing success of the Scuderia is the proof of this.

This year’s version provides a fascinating account of what went on in Ferrari in 2006, both on a GT and F1 level. The Formula 1 section provides a stunning record of the season’s most unforgettable moments as well as playing homage to Michael Schumacher’s 11-year career with the Prancing Horse. The GT section of the Yearbook celebrates the arrival of the latest addition to the Prancing Horse range, the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano, and the memorable Panamerican Tour 20,000. There is also an interesting chapter on the newly minted Ferrari Classiche division’s certification of classic Ferraris, plus interesting features on other areas of the world of Ferrari, including the Galleria Ferrari, the Client Racing division and the Scuderia Ferrari Club.
In the course of its 280 pages, the Ferrari Yearbook 2007 tells the tale of a roller-coaster year packed with thrills, nail-biting finales and celebration in a host of specially written articles and hundreds of high resolution photographs. 2007 was an unforgettable year even by Ferrari standards as it marked the celebration of our 60th Anniversary, a tough, right-to- the-line battle for the Constructorsï¿½ and Driversï¿½ World titles and the unveiling of the new Ferrari 430 Scuderia berlinetta. The Yearbook opens with an homage to the World Champions: the Scuderia Ferrari so ably represented by drivers Kimi Raikkonen and Felipe Massa, is captured in a series of unique photographs and in detailed reports of every one of the seasonï¿½s GPs. This is followed by a section devoted to Maranelloï¿½s latest arrival, the Ferrari 430 Scuderia, and then a spread on the Ferrari Relay Tour staged to celebrate 60th years of the Prancing Horse.
The Ferrari Yearbook 2007 also covers other subjects dear to us here in Maranello, including the Corse Clienti division, the Galleria Ferrari museum, the Ferrari Stores and the Ferrari Clubs. The Yearbook is dedicated to everyone who loves Ferrari and wants to be able to relive the high points of what proved to be an incredibly exciting year on every level.
