The house-influenced record "Tonight" features vocals from P-Square. "Kom Kom" borrows from Onyeka Onwenu's "Iyogogo". The Latin-inspired track "Marry Me" is a blend of Nigerian pidgin and salsa; the highlife song "Ferrari" has been described as "blatantly materialistic" due to the lyrics: "Oga I don tire to stay Mainland/ E no go bad if you buy me mansion for Banana Island/ Open supermarket for me for Netherlands." In "Kelele", Yemi Alade channels King Sunny Adé. In "Ego", she grapples with her need for the good life. "Nakupenda" contains backup vocals and drumbeat sounds. The album's lead single "Na Gode" was released on July 10, 2015, it preaches the message of gratitude and giving.

"Tumbum" was featured in Just Dance 2018, an interactive dance rhythm game developed by Ubisoft. Mama Africa was met with mixed reviews from music critics. A writer for Pulse Nigeria concluded, "Yemi Alade isn’t a far cry from the masterful-eyed woman who made “King of Queens”, but she provokes intriguing music from her influences, upping her game from the last solo album with mundane love expressions and stories turned up a notch."
Ade Tayo of Simply Africa Music said, "With Mama Africa, Yemi Alade has ample material to use for performance purposes on any platform, across Africa. She can perform the bulk of these songs with as much energy as possible backed up by amazing dancers with skilled choreography and it would be a show worth remembering". Adaobi Nezianya for Circulation magazine said Yemi Alade "seemed to have curated the right sounds from diverse places to craft an excellent album and a good showcase of her vision and talent." In a less enthusiastic review, Oris Aigbokhaevbolo for Music in Africa said the album has "zero replay value" and further stated that numerous songs on the LP "carry the vapid materialism of the stereotypical Lagos girl". Wilfred Okiche of 360 Nobs described the album as "one big dance party" and said its title is "only a ruse to thread her influences and copy catting into a cohesive effort." Okichie said the album is "as Nigerian pop as they come". Temitope Delano of TooXclusive described the album as "boring" and further stated that it is "a far cry from what was expected from this brilliant artiste."

Philipp von Ferrary
Philip Ferrari de La Renotière was a noted stamp collector, assembling the most complete worldwide collection that existed, or is to exist. Amongst his rare stamps were the unique Treskilling Yellow of Sweden and the 1856 one-cent "Black on Magenta" of British Guiana. Ferrary was born in the sumptuous Hôtel Matignon, Rue de Varenne in Paris, where he resided until two years prior to his death. Once the festive gathering place for the Ancien Régime society, at the start of the Bourbon Restoration in 1815, Louis XVIII traded the Hôtel de Matignon for the Élysée Palace, it is now the official residence of the Prime Minister of France. Ferrary was the son of the Duchess of Galliera, his father, Raffaele de Ferrari, came from an ancient and rich family of Genovese bankers and was a wealthy businessman made Duke of Galliera in Genoa by Pope Gregory XVI, Prince de Lucedio by Victor-Emmanuel II, King of Italy. Raffaele de Ferrari was co-founder of the Crédit Mobilier with the Péreire brothers, rivals of the Rothschilds, who financed many of the major construction projects of the second half of the 19th century: railroads in Austria, Latin America, upper Italy and France, the digging of the Fréjus Rail Tunnel and the Suez Canal, the reconstruction of Paris designed by Baron Haussmann.
It is said. Ferrary's mother, the Duchess of Galliera, born Maria de Brignole-Sale, was the great-niece of the Princess of Monaco and daughter of the Marquis Antoine de Brignole-Sale, ambassador of the Kingdom of Sardinia in Paris, under the Restoration and during the reign of Louis-Philippe. After the death of Ferrary's father, the Duchess proposed that Philippe, Count of Paris take up residence at the Rue de Varenne, he came to occupy the ground floor of the Hôtel Matignon. The Duchess soon became disenchanted with the adverse social environment for the monarchists, quit Paris, left Hôtel Matignon to the Austro-Hungarian Emperor, who made it his embassy in France. Upon the death of his father, Ferrary renounced all of the titles, he was adopted by the Austrian Count de La Renotière von Kriegsfeld and he adopted Austrian nationality. It is said that Ferrary was illegitimate, that he was adopted by his natural father. Thereafter, he preferred the name "Ferrary". Collectors and dealers refer to him as "Ferrary".
Ferrary started collecting in his youth, he inherited a great fortune of 120,000,000 French francs, which he dedicated to the purchase of rare stamps and coins. His collection is believed to have been the greatest assembled, it may never be equalled. Amongst his rare stamps were the unique Treskilling Yellow of Sweden and the 1856 one-cent "Black on Magenta" of British Guiana, which he bought in 1878 for £150 and which after his death was sold at the third bid of his collection, in 1924, at Paris for 36,000 US dollars, he owned the only unused copy of the Two Cent Hawaii Missionary of 1851, for which its owner, Gaston Leroux, had been murdered by a fellow collector. Another piece owned by Ferrary was the only known cover featuring both values of the first Mauritius "Post Office" stamps, called "the greatest item in all philately", he purchased many important old collections, including those of Judge Frederick A. Philbrick for £7,000, Sir Daniel Cooper's for £3,000, W. B. Thornhill's Australians, was a large buyer in the leading capitals of Europe for a great many years.
Stanley Gibbons said. According to F. J. Peplow of Great Britain, in his book The Postage Stamps of Buenos Aires, the first clue that an inverted cliché existed on the Buenos Aires “In Ps” plate of the “barquitos” was the report of a single stamp with part of the adjoining stamp rotated 180 degrees and it had been acquired by Ferrary for his collection, he employed Pierre Mahé, a leading Paris stamp dealer, as a consultant or curator to examine and keep order in his collection from 1874 until Mahé died in 1913. He had two secretaries, who were paid large salaries: one to look after the postage stamps and the other the postcards and newspaper wrappers. Ferrary had his own stamp room furnished with numerous fan cabinets. Although he lived in Paris, Ferrary travelled meeting with dealers along the way, paying them in gold on the spot, he was impulsive in his buying and seemed to be indifferent to price, so dealers and counterfeiters took advantage of him. Exceptionally dangerous forgeries gained the nickname "Ferrarities".
Ferrary assembled a large collection of rare coins. His British numismatic collection was sold by Sotheby, Wilkinson & Hodge in London over five days from 27–31 March 1922; the title of the sale did not mention Ferrary by name, but read as follows: “Catalogue of the Famous and Remarkable Collection of British and Colonial Coins, Patterns & Proofs from George III to the Present Day, Formed by a Nobleman, Recently Deceased.” The catalogue had 15 plates. Other sales of his French and ancient coins were held in Paris. Wishing to make his unequalled collection accessible to the public, in his will dated 30 January 1915 he bequeathed it to "the German nation" for display in the Postmuseum in Berlin, along with funds for maintenance, 30,000 guldens, he stipulated that the collection was "not to be integrated into the existing postal museum collection" but was to be "exhibited in a separate room". But as a citizen of Austria living in France, World War I put him at risk. Leaving h
Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari
The Autodromo Internazionale Enzo e Dino Ferrari is a motorsport race circuit near the Italian town of Imola, 40 kilometres east of Bologna and 80 kilometres east of the Ferrari factory in Maranello. The circuit is named after his son Dino who had died in the 1950s. Before Enzo Ferrari's death in 1988 it was called'Autodromo Dino Ferrari'; the circuit has FIA Grade 1 license. It was the venue for the Formula One San Marino Grand Prix and it hosted the 1980 edition of the Italian Grand Prix, which takes place in Monza; when Formula One visits Imola, it is seen as the'home circuit' of Ferrari and masses of tifosi come out to support the local team. Imola, as it is colloquially known, is one of the few major international circuits to run in an anti-clockwise direction; the track was inaugurated as a semi-permanent venue in 1953, it had no chicanes, so the run from Rivazza all the way to Tosa, through the pits and the Tamburello was flat out, as was the run from Acque Minerali all the way to Rivazza was just a long straight with a few small bends.
In April 1953, the first motorcycle races took place, while the first car race took place in June 1954. In April 1963, the circuit hosted its first Formula One race, as a non-championship event, won by Jim Clark for Lotus. A further non-championship event took place at Imola in 1979, won by Niki Lauda for Brabham-Alfa Romeo. In 1980 Imola debuted in the Formula One calendar by hosting the 50th Italian Grand Prix, it was the first time since the 1948 Edition held at Parco del Valentino that the Autodromo Nazionale Monza did not host the Italian Grand Prix. The race was won by Nelson Piquet and it was such a success that a new race, the San Marino Grand Prix, was established for Imola in 1981; the race was held over 60 laps of the 5 kilometre circuit for a total race distance of 300 kilometres. Imola has hosted a round of the Superbike World Championship from 2001 to 2006 and since 2009, it hosts the final round of the FIM Motocross World Championship since 2018. The World Touring Car Championship visited Imola in 2008, 2008, 2009.
The venue hosted a round of the International GT Open from 2009 to 2011. The TCR International Series raced at Imola in 2016; the 6 Hours of Imola was revived in 2011 and added to the Le Mans Series and Intercontinental Le Mans Cup as a season event until 2016. Since 2017 it hosts the 12 Hours of a round of the 24H Series; the track was used as part of the finishing circuit for the 1968 UCI Road World Championships, which saw Italian cyclist Vittorio Adorni winning with a lead of 10 minutes and 10 seconds over runner up Herman Van Springel, the second largest winning margin in the history of the championships, after Georges Ronsse's victory in 1928. In addition Adorni's countryman Michele Dancelli took the bronze and five of the top six finishers were Italian; the circuit was used for stage 11 of the 2015 Giro d'Italia, won by Ilnur Zakarin, stage 12 of the 2018 Giro d'Italia, won by Sam Bennett. Despite the addition of the chicanes, the circuit was subject to constant safety concerns regarding the flat-out Tamburello corner, bumpy and had dangerously little room between the track and a concrete wall which protects the Santerno river that runs behind it.
In 1987, Nelson Piquet missed the race due to injury. In the 1989 San Marino Grand Prix, Gerhard Berger crashed his Ferrari at Tamburello after a front wing failure; the car caught fire after the heavy impact but thanks to the quick work of the firefighters and medical personnel Berger survived and missed only one race due to burns to his hands. Michele Alboreto had a fiery accident at the Tamburello corner testing his Footwork Arrows at the circuit in 1991 but escaped injury. Riccardo Patrese had an accident at the Tamburello corner in 1992 while testing for the Williams team; the death of Ayrton Senna on 1 May 1994 sealed the fate of the corner being run flat out again. In the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix, during Friday practice Rubens Barrichello was launched over a curb and into the top of a tyre barrier at the Variante Bassa, knocking the Brazilian unconscious, though quick medical intervention saved his life. During Saturday qualifying Austrian Roland Ratzenberger crashed head-on into a wall at over 310 km/h at the Villeneuve corner after his Simtek lost the front wing, dying from a basilar skull fracture.
The tragedy continued the next day, when the three-time World Champion Ayrton Senna lost control of his car and crashed into the concrete wall at the Tamburello corner on Lap 7. He succumbed shortly after impact as a piece of the car had pierced his skull. In two unrelated incidents, several spectators and mechanics were injured during the event. In the aftermath, the circuit continued to host Grands Prix, but revisions were made in an attempt to make it safer; the flat-out Tamburello corner was reduced to a 4th gear left-right sweeper, a gravel trap was added to the limited space on the outside of the corner. Villeneuve corner an innocuous 6th gear right-hander into Tosa, was made a complementary 4th gear sweeper with a gravel trap on the outside of the corner. In an attempt to
F-1 Hero MD
F1 Hero MD is a Formula One video game endorsed by Satoru Nakajima, released in 1992 for the Mega Drive/Genesis. The North American and European versions of the Mega Drive/Genesis game are known as Ferrari Grand Prix Challenge in honor of the Ferrari brand of racing vehicles; the Mega Drive version of the game includes a Grand Prix mode, a free practice mode, a time attack mode. The team and player names are close to the real thing without violating copyright laws. Either one or two players can compete and the game has a password method of saving the game. In addition to traditional tracks used in the 1991 Formula One season, the player can play in bonus race tracks. Autopolis, Fuji Speedway, an oval training course, a treacherous road course designed by the programmers of the video game used in the Japanese version, it is one of only three Mega Drive games. The North American version uses the former location of the Long Beach Grand Prix, the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, Oyster Bay, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway as American-specific substitutes for the tracks considered "local" to the Japanese.
However, the graphics used for the backgrounds are identical to each other in both versions of the game. The title Ferrari Grand Prix Challenge was ported for the Game Boy and Nintendo Entertainment System, it was published by Acclaim in North America and Europe. Coconuts Japan published the game in Japan under the title Ferrari; the Nintendo Entertainment System version of the game is a simplified version that allows players to practice up to six laps or qualify for every Formula One race of the season using metric units. It was one of the few 8-bit Formula One video games to adequately represent the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve as having an urban background along with several other urban race tracks represented in the 1990 Formula One season with the exception that Circuit de Catalunya is presented in this version as the round in Spain, although Jerez hosted the 1990 Spanish Grand Prix. Tire wear is possible resulting in trips to the pit crew for maintenance and repairs. A radio allows communication with the crew chief.
The top speed of the vehicle is 335 kilometres per turbo is not used in the game. Before the first qualifying session can take place, the player must insert his name and his nationality; the name can be up to 10 characters long and the country has to fit into a three-character field. Since the game doesn't verify if the three-letter code matches up to a real nationality, it doesn't matter if the player makes up a nationality for a fictional country
Ferrari is an Italian luxury sports car manufacturer based in Maranello. Founded by Enzo Ferrari in 1939 out of Alfa Romeo's race division as Auto Avio Costruzioni, the company built its first car in 1940. However, the company's inception as an auto manufacturer is recognized in 1947, when the first Ferrari-badged car was completed. In 2014, Ferrari was rated the world's most powerful brand by Brand Finance. In June 2018, the 1964 250 GTO became the most expensive car in history, setting an all-time record selling price of $70 million. Fiat S.p. A. acquired 50% of Ferrari in 1969 and expanded its stake to 90% in 1988. In October 2014 Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N. V. announced its intentions to separate Ferrari S.p. A. from FCA. The separation began in October 2015 with a restructuring that established Ferrari N. V. as the new holding company of the Ferrari group and the subsequent sale by FCA of 10% of the shares in an IPO and concurrent listing of common shares on the New York Stock Exchange. Through the remaining steps of the separation, FCA's interest in Ferrari's business was distributed to shareholders of FCA, with 10% continuing to be owned by Piero Ferrari.
The spin-off was completed on 3 January 2016. Throughout its history, the company has been noted for its continued participation in racing in Formula One, where it is the oldest and most successful racing team, holding the most constructors championships and having produced the highest number of drivers' championship wins. Ferrari road cars are seen as a symbol of speed and wealth. Enzo Ferrari was not interested in the idea of producing road cars when he formed Scuderia Ferrari in 1929, with headquarters in Modena. Scuderia Ferrari means "Ferrari Stable" and is used to mean "Team Ferrari." Ferrari bought and fielded Alfa Romeo racing cars for gentleman drivers, functioning as the racing division of Alfa Romeo. In 1933, Alfa Romeo withdrew its in-house racing team and Scuderia Ferrari took over as its works team: the Scuderia received Alfa's Grand Prix cars of the latest specifications and fielded many famous drivers such as Tazio Nuvolari and Achille Varzi. In 1938, Alfa Romeo brought its racing operation again in-house, forming Alfa Corse in Milan and hired Enzo Ferrari as manager of the new racing department.
In September 1939, Ferrari left Alfa Romeo under the provision he would not use the Ferrari name in association with races or racing cars for at least four years. A few days he founded Auto Avio Costruzioni, headquartered in the facilities of the old Scuderia Ferrari; the new company ostensibly produced machine tools and aircraft accessories. In 1940, Ferrari produced a race car – the Tipo 815, based on a Fiat platform, it was the first Ferrari car and debuted at the 1940 Mille Miglia, but due to World War II it saw little competition. In 1943, the Ferrari factory moved to Maranello, where it has remained since; the factory was bombed by the Allies and subsequently rebuilt including a works for road car production. The first Ferrari-badged car was the 1947 125 S, powered by a 1.5 L V12 engine. The Scuderia Ferrari name was resurrected to denote the factory racing cars and distinguish them from those fielded by customer teams. In 1960 the company was restructured as a public corporation under the name SEFAC S.p.
A.. Early in 1969, Fiat took a 50% stake in Ferrari. An immediate result was an increase in available investment funds, work started at once on a factory extension intended to transfer production from Fiat's Turin plant of the Ferrari engined Fiat Dino. New model investment further up in the Ferrari range received a boost. In 1988, Enzo Ferrari oversaw the launch of the Ferrari F40, the last new Ferrari launched before his death that year. In 1989, the company was renamed Ferrari S.p. A. From 2002 to 2004, Ferrari produced the Enzo, their fastest model at the time, introduced and named in honor of the company's founder, Enzo Ferrari, it was to be called the F60, continuing on from the F40 and F50, but Ferrari was so pleased with it, they called it the Enzo instead. It was offered to loyal and recurring customers, each of the 399 made had a price tag of $650,000 apiece. On 15 September 2012, 964 Ferrari cars attended the Ferrari Driving Days event at Silverstone Circuit and paraded round the Silverstone Circuit setting a world record.
Ferrari's former CEO and Chairman, Luca di Montezemolo, resigned from the company after 23 years, succeeded by Amedeo Felisa and on 3 May 2016 Amedeo resigned and was succeeded by Sergio Marchionne, CEO and Chairman of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, Ferrari's parent company. In July 2018, Marchionne was replaced by board member Louis Camilleri as CEO and by John Elkann as chairman. On 29 October 2014, the FCA group, resulting from the merger between manufacturers Fiat and Chrysler, announced the split of its luxury brand, Ferrari; the aim is to turn Ferrari into an independent brand which 10% of stake will be sold in an IPO in 2015. Ferrari priced its initial public offering at $52 a share after the market close on 20 October 2015. Since the company's beginnings, Ferrari has been involved in motorsport, competing in a range of categories including Formula One and sports car racing through its Scuderia Ferrari sporting division as well as supplying cars and engines to other t
Enzo Anselmo Giuseppe Maria Ferrari, Cavaliere di Gran Croce OMRI was an Italian motor racing driver and entrepreneur, the founder of the Scuderia Ferrari Grand Prix motor racing team, subsequently of the Ferrari automobile marque. He was known as "il Commendatore" or "il Drake". In his final years he was referred to as "l'Ingegnere" or "il Grande Vecchio". Ferrari was said to have been born on 18 February 1898 in Modena and that his birth was recorded on 20 February because a heavy snowstorm had prevented his father from reporting the birth at the local registry office, he was the younger of two children to Alfredo Ferrari and Adalgisa Bisbini, after his elder sibling Alfredo Junior. Alfredo Senior was the son of a grocer from Carpi and started a workshop fabricating metal parts at the family home. Enzo grew up with little formal education. At the age of 10 he witnessed Felice Nazzaro's win at the 1908 Circuito di Bologna, an event that inspired him to become a racing driver. During World War I he served in the 3rd Mountain Artillery Regiment of the Italian Army.
His father Alfredo, his older brother, Alfredo Jr. died in 1916 as a result of a widespread Italian flu outbreak. Ferrari became sick himself in the 1918 flu pandemic and was discharged from the Italian service. Following the family's carpentry business collapse, Ferrari started searching for a job in the car industry, he unsuccessfully volunteered his services to FIAT in Turin settling for a job as test-driver for C. M. N. A car manufacturer in Milan, which rebuilt used truck bodies into small passenger cars, he was promoted to race car driver and made his competitive debut in the 1919 Parma-Poggio di Berceto hillclimb race, where he finished fourth in the three-litre category at the wheel of a 2.3-litre 4-cylinder C. M. N. 15/20. On 23 November of the same year, he took part in the Targa Florio but had to retire after his car's fuel tank developed a leak. In 1920, Enzo joined the racing department of Alfa Romeo as a driver. In 1924, Ferrari won the Coppa Acerbo at Pescara, a success that encouraged Alfa Romeo to offer him a chance to race in much more prestigious competitions.
Shocked by the death of Antonio Ascari in 1925, Ferrari, by his own admissions, continued to race half-heartedly. Following the birth of his son Alfredo in 1932, Ferrari decided to retire and to focus instead on the management and development of the factory Alfa race cars building up a raceteam of superstar drivers, including Giuseppe Campari and Tazio Nuvolari; this team was acted as a racing division for Alfa Romeo. The team was successful, thanks to the excellent cars, for example the Alfa Romeo P3 and to the talented drivers, like Nuvolari. In this period the prancing horse emblem began to show up on his team's cars; the emblem sported by Italian fighter plane pilot Francesco Baracca. During World War I, Baracca gave Ferrari a necklace with the prancing horse on it prior to takeoff. Baracca was shot down and killed by an Austrian aeroplane in 1918.. In memory of his death, Ferrari used the prancing horse to create the emblem that would become the world-famous Ferrari shield. Displayed on Alfa Romeos, the shield was first seen on a Ferrari in 1947.
Alfa Romeo agreed to partner Ferrari's racing team until 1933, when financial constraints forced them to withdraw their support – a decision subsequently retracted thanks to the intervention of Pirelli. Despite the quality of the Scuderia drivers, the team struggled to compete with Auto Union and Mercedes. Although the German manufacturers dominated the era, Ferrari's team achieved a notable victory in 1935 when Tazio Nuvolari beat Rudolf Caracciola and Bernd Rosemeyer on their home turf at the German Grand Prix. In 1937 Scuderia Ferrari was dissolved and Ferrari returned to Alfa's racing team, named Alfa Corse. Alfa Romeo decided to regain full control of its racing division, retaining Ferrari as Sporting Director. After a disagreement with Alfa's managing director Ugo Gobbato, Ferrari left in 1939 and founded Auto-Avio Costruzioni, a company supplying parts to other racing teams. Although a contract clause restricted him from racing or designing cars for four years, Ferrari managed to manufacture two cars for the 1940 Mille Miglia, which were driven by Alberto Ascari and Lotario Rangoni.
With the outbreak of World War II in 1940, Ferrari's factory was forced to undertake war production for Mussolini's fascist government. Following Allied bombing of the factory, Ferrari relocated from Modena to Maranello. At the end of the conflict, Ferrari decided to start making cars bearing his name, founded Ferrari S.p. A. in 1947. Enzo decided to battle the dominating Alfa Romeos and race with his own team; the team's open-wheel debut took place in Turin in 1948 and the first win came in the year in Lago di Garda. The first major victory came at the 1949 24 Hours of Le Mans, with a Ferrari 166M driven by Luigi Chinetti and Peter Mitchell-Thomson. In 1950 Ferrari enrolled in the newly-born Formula 1 World Championship and is the only team to remain continuously present since its introduction. Ferrari won his first Grand Prix with José Froilán González at Silverstone in 1951; the story goes that Enzo cried like a baby when his team defeated the mighty Alfetta 159. The first championship came in 1952, with Alberto Ascari, a task, repeated one year later.
In 1953 Ferrari made
