Correct response: What is Ferrari?
More information about Final Jeopardy:
The Latin word for iron is “ferrum”; this leads to “Ferrari” or “Ferraro”, which would be the Italian for “blacksmith”.
Yes, the name behind one of the world’s most famous automobile marques is the Italian equivalent of “Smith”. The automaker was founded by Enzo Ferrari originally as a racing team; they bought and prepared Alfa Romeo cars for racing. There was an eventual falling-out with Alfa just before the start of World War II and Ferrari began producing his own cars, also reluctantly building road cars in order to fund the racing operation.
Since 1950, a Ferrari driver has won the Formula One World Drivers’ Championship 15 times (most recently in 2007 with Finnish driver Kimi Räikkönen); the team has won the Formula One World Constructors’ Championship 16 times.
