This year will celebrate 65 years for Formula One. In the time the series has been around, there have been a lot of changes. Some pretty big. So many different types of engine configurations, relocating it from up front to behind the driver, the changes in materials and tire tech, wings, aero, electronics... So we've collected a series of animations, graphics, and videos created by people to illustrate these changes, and how significantly they've changed the sport over time. Enjoy.

The commercial that, for Tifosi, may be the best ever made. Yes, it's missing MANY classic Ferraris from their time in partnership with AGIP. Be that as it may, it's still a visual and audible classic. You should turn up your volume here.
In case you want to see every permutation without missing certain years, here is the illustrated evolution of Ferrari in F1 from 1950 up through 2010.
And a more modern version covering the evolution of Ferrari from 2007 through 2014
