The car won the races, the first GP race in Japan and the grand final race in Australia for two years in low when Williams Honda FW11B was at its peak. Since Ferrari was working on automobile developments subsequently Renault, Ferrari used 126c during GP qualifying race in Italia in 1980. Since then, Ferrari has known as a reign with 126 series which has 1.5 litter of V6 turbo. But F186 from 1983 turned out to be the first racing car which didn’t win the race after all of winning years in lows. Gusutav Brunner and Harvey Postlethwaite were transferred to Ferrari from Arrows to produce and develop the car and their first car is known as F187. Brunner is the first ATS which intergrade monocoque with outer panel and it follows style among F187. It contains a stylish monocoque, double wishbone suspension with the design of big wings.

The records has been better after Jone Bernard became a technical director instead of Pousthwaite. He reformed the team’s organization itself, F187 of suspension geometry changes, aerodynamic refinement, and fuel consumption. Beluga achieved the pole position in Portugal GP for the first time.
