The 642 designed by Steve Nichols and Jean-Claude Migeot was used by Scuderia Ferrari in the 1991 Formula 1 season. It was a further development of the 641 model from 1990, which had mounted a championship challenge in 1990. The car was used for the first 6 races of the season and was replaced by the Ferrari 643 at the 1991 French Grand Prix. The 642 suffered inconsistent handling issues, but Alain Prost was able to drove the car to the 2nd place at the season opener at US GP in Phoenix. Prost’s teammate Jean Alesi was 3rd in Monaco. The 642’s successor, Ferrari 643, was also regular podium finisher, but neither Prost nor Alesi brought victories to the team in 1991.
