The movie brief states: “It is the summer of 1957. Behind the spectacle of Formula 1, ex-racer Enzo Ferrari is in crisis. Bankruptcy threatens the factory he and his wife, Laura built from nothing ten years earlier. Their volatile marriage has been battered by the loss of their son, Dino a year earlier.

“Ferrari struggles to acknowledge his son Piero with Lina Lardi. Meanwhile, his drivers’ passion to win pushes them to the edge as they launch into the treacherous 1,000-mile race across Italy, the Mille Miglia.

“Driver and Cruz will bring full-throttle drama to the big screen alongside Shailene Woodley as Lina Lardi, Sarah Gadon as Linda Christian, Gabriel Leone as Alfonso de Portago, Jack O’Connell as Peter Collins and Patrick Dempsey as Piero Taruffi,” concludes the Ferrari movie blurb.

Enzo, of course, is the founder and mastermind of the great Italian marque and racing team, based in Maranello, the heart of Italy. Ferrari has been integral to the history of Formula 1, the two inseparable since 1950.

Having contested the pinnacle of the sport since 1950, and remained in the top flight since then, Ferrari are the most successful team in the sport’s history with 16 F1 Constructors’ titles to their name, as well as 15 F1 Drivers’ titles.

The 2024 Bahrain Grand Prix season opener will be Ferrari’s 1075th GP weekend. The Reds have 807 GP podiums to their name, 243 times as winners. Their drivers have ranked among the greats of F1: Albert Ascari, Juan Manuel Fangio, Mike Hawthorn, Phil Hill, John Surtees, Niki Lauda, Jody Scheckter, Michael Schumacher and Kimi Raikkonen – all F1 World Champions in Red.

Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz lead the current Ferrari charge and are among the 111 drivers who have driven the cars badged with the iconic Prancing Horse. Seven drivers lost their lives driving for Enzo in F1, among them his favourite: Gilles Villeneuve.

Enzo Ferrari  – Il Commendatore or Il Drake as he was referred to in Italy – passed away on 14 August 1988.
