About the F187:
Having a victory drought for most of the 1980s, the Ferrari team settled for a new design for the 1987 season. The main design was done by Gustav Brunner, with newcomer John Barnard taking over after Brunner's departure from the team. The result was the F187 - featuring a lower cockpit and sharper body than the car from the previous year, and equipped with a 90°V6 twin turbo engine mounted longitudinally. While the F187 retired from many races due to reliability issues with a new engine, it saw better performances late in the season. Newcomer G. Berger was able to win first place at Suzuka GP, being the first driver to ever win at Suzuka Circuit for F1 (it was the first Japanese Grand Prix since 1977, and the first to ever be held at Suzuka Circuit). In the final Australian GP, the team was able to grasp a one-two finish, scoring two consecutive wins before the end of the season. As turbocharged engines were banned from 1989 and on, the team decided to enter the F187 for the year of 1988 with some modifications done to fit the regulations for that year. The new car, F187/88C, while strong, was not enough to compete against McLaren`s MP4/4 - equipped with the Honda engine and driven by star drivers A. Senna and A. Prost. To add to matters, the manufacturer founder Enzo Ferrari passed away in August 1988, leaving a team in a negative state. Despite the misfortunes, Berger and teammate M. Alboreto managed a one-two finish in the hometown of the team in September`s Italian GP, having Senna forced to retire after a collision. It was a victory well remembered, marking an emotional victory for the team after Enzo Ferrari`s passing, and being the only race McLaren did not win in the entire season of 1988.
