In 2001, Scuderia Ferrari celebrated another record-breaking season of Formula One triumph, in both the drivers' and the constructors' world championships.
Michael Schumacher drove to his fourth drivers’ title in eight years -- and second in as many seasons -- while Ferrari, through Schumacher and Rubens Barrichello, lifted the constructors' championship for the second straight year. Schumacher posted a remarkable nine individual wins after triumphing in the season-ending Japanese Grand Prix, as well as piling up a record 123 points and the greatest number of fastest laps.
With Brazilian Barrichello finishing third on 56 points, Ferrari totally dominated the constructors' championship as their haul of 179 points left Mclaren well behind in second place with 102. Last December, Ferrari were named world team of the year by French newspaper L'Equipe.
