The Ferrari F1/87 is a Formula One racing car used by the Ferrari team during the 1987 Formula One season.
The car was driven by Michele Alboreto (number 27) and Gerhard Berger (number 28).
The car was somewhat quick and competitive at the start of the season, but by the time Hungary came around the car became even more competitive; it was almost as quick as the Williams-Honda but not as reliable; Gerhard Berger was qualifying inside the top 3 on every race in the season from Hungary afterwards.
Berger scored two victories in the F1/87, the Japanese and Australian Grand Prix, as well as taking three pole positions.
The car demonstrated flashes of its potential early in the season with Alboreto for a short time leading the San Marino Grand Prix. However, reliability issues were a major concern.
The season finished on a high with dominating victories for Berger in the final two rounds and Alboreto made it a Ferrari 1-2 in Adelaide after Ayrton Senna's Lotus-Honda was disqualified for oversized brake ducts.
Berger's wins also gave Ferrari its first back to back wins since the late Gilles Villeneuve had won the Monaco and Spanish Grands Prix (Rounds 6 and 7) in 1981.
As a result, Ferrari went into 1988 as one of the favourites for the championship.
