The Ferrari F399 was the car with which the Ferrari team competed in the 1999 Formula One season. The F399 was almost identical to the previous season's F300 model, with small detailed changes. It was initially driven by Michael Schumacher and Eddie Irvine, Mika Salo then substituting for the German when he broke his leg at Silverstone.
Although the team's quest to win their first drivers' title since 1979 was frustrated by Schumacher's injury and the speed of the McLaren MP4/14, they did manage to clinch Ferrari's first constructors' crown since 1983.
