Ferrari sealed the F1 constructors’ championship title in the Brazilian Grand Prix, increasing their record tally of titles to 16.

Although Ferrari is the only active team to compete in the first ever world championship F1 Grand Prix at Silverstone in 1950, half of its title have come in the last ten years.

They won the title six years in a row from 1999 to 2004, then again in 2007 before retaining it this year. Last year they became champions after the FIA decided to exclude McLaren from the constructors’ championship over the spying row.

Their other eight titles came in 1961, 1964, 1975-7, 1979 and 1982-3. Ferrari would probably have an even larger haul of titles had the constructors’ championship come into existence at the same time as the drivers’ title. It was not inaugurated until 1958.
