9 1-2 finishes in one season, 15 wins, and 30 podiums. What team do you think I am talking about? Mercedes? Red Bull in the sebastian days? Nope, Before there was the almost annoying amount of domination from the likes of redbull than mercedes there was a time where the dominating force wore the color red, I am of course talking about Micheal schumacher’s time at ferrari, But the stats that I stated earlier are specifically related to the F2004, A car that for some reason is my favorite out of the dominate red beasts.
The car was an evolution of the already competitive f2003-GA and with designers Rory Bryne, Aldo Costa, and John lley behind the drawing board there was no doubt that the car would be a barnstormer. Changes to the F2004 included a more tighter exhaust package to the cars centre line, enlarged rear wing, redesigned rear suspension to reduce tire wear and an engine that could last a full weekend.
The car was immediately a race winner winning the first 5 races and going on to win 15 out of 18 races that season sealing Micheal Shumachers last drivers title and drawing to a close the 5 years of previous Ferrari domination.
