Jean Alesi drove this Ferrari to 3rd place at the1991 German GP behind Patrese and Mansell.
The Ferrari 643 was a Formula One car designed by Steve Nichols and Jean-Claude Migeot and was built by Scuderia Ferrari for use in the 1991 Formula One season. Introduced at the French Grand Prix it initially looked to have potential to run at the front. Alain Prost qualified on the front row and took the lead, and although he was eventually passed by Nigel Mansell in his Renault powered Williams FW14, a 2nd place in the car's first race looked promising. Aside from almost always being on the front part of the grid, it was not to be however.
Although arguably one of the prettier cars in the field, the car's results (or lack thereof) was one of the main reasons for the falling out between Prost and Ferrari, with the Frenchman eventually saying that "a truck would be easier to drive than this car". Following the Japanese Grand Prix, Prost was fired for the only time in his F1 career. The team replaced him in Australia with test driver Gianni Morbidelli.
The car scored 39.5 points of the teams 55.5 points in 1991 (the 642 model was used to score 16 points in the first 6 races of the season) with 8 podiums and finished 3rd in the constructors championship.
The 643 was replaced at the start of the 1992 season by the Ferrari F92A.
