Ferrari F2012 (2012)
Driven by former World Champion Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa, the F2012 was built to be Ferrari’s competitor in the 2012 FIA Formula One World Championship® season. A reliable runner, Ferrari recorded the least retirements of the season and each of those three retirements were all collision related. An underwhelming pre-season led to an initially poor start to the season. Ferrari denied the car was underperforming but Alonso was struggling to challenge for podium places whilst Massa only scored once in the first four races. There was a brief respite in Malaysia as Alonso took advantage of the F2012’s superior ability in poor weather conditions and mistakes by Sergio Pérez to take victory.
At in-season testing at Mugello, Ferrari tried different solutions of exhaust system in order to improve traction of the car and to make it less sensitive to throttle position, improving its handling characteristics. This seemed to do the trick and Alonso qualified third in Spain before finishing in second place during the race. In Monaco, both cars made it into Q3 for the first time in the year and Alonso took another podium. Victories followed in the European Grand Prix and in Germany and consistent podiums were achieved for the rest of the season, excluding blips in Hungary and Belgium. The season culminated in a 2-3 finish in Brazil, meaning Ferrari finished their season with their highest weekend points haul. Overall, the F2012 earned the team three wins, twelve further podiums and 400 Constructors’ points. Ferrari ultimately finished second in the Constructors’ Championship, 60 points behind Red Bull.
