The 801 was the evolution of Ferrari-Lancia D50 with a new tubular chassis, a redesigned V8 engine and a traditional bodywork. The name of the car is made up of the number of cylinders (8) and 1 for Formula 1, with 0 to create the classic three-figure number. During the season the cars were driven by Peter Collins, Luigi Musso and Mike Hawthorn as regular drivers with some one-off entries for others. Ferrari did not win in the season, and 801 only took few podiums in hands of Musso, Collins and Hawthorn. For Musso the highest point of the season was 2nd place at French and British Grand Prix. The scale model from Ferrari F1 Collection is Luigi’s car from Rouen.
