The Ferrari F310 , and its evolution, the F310B , was a Formula 1 car with which Scuderia Ferrari raced in the 1996 and 1997 seasons . It was driven in both years by Michael Schumacher and Eddie Irvine .
The F310 turned out to be a low front end car, but the flat bottom and the Ferrari's unreliability led the Williams FW18 to dominate the 1996 season. Schumacher was able to win three grands prix, but the car's shortcomings were shown. for Irvine's poor season, who dropped out of eight straight grands prix, mostly due to mechanical problems.
This model was a bit more streamlined but still lacked the engine power and aerodynamic package with which Williams managed to dominate the season with the Williams FW19 . Regardless, Michael Schumacher won 5 Grand Prix and was one point ahead of Jacques Villeneuve before the last Grand Prix of the season . He was however unable to contain Jacques Villeneuve, after a collision with 23 laps remaining. Later the FIA would disqualify Schumacher for intentionality in the crash.
