The Ferrari F1-2000 was designed by Rory Byrne for the 2000 Formula One season. The car was a direct development of the F300 and F399 from the previous two seasons, using the same basic gearbox and engine. The car featured improved aerodynamics, which put it on a par with that year's McLaren car. The car was much more reliable than its rivals, but it was slower than the McLaren MP4-15.

It was the car which Michael Schumacher drove to his third World Drivers' Title and Ferrari's first drivers' title for 21 years. It also defended Ferrari's constructors' crown.
