2008 Formula One Team Principals' Championship season
Newly-appointed Ferrari boss Stefano Domenicali won the title in his first year in charge. However, Lewis Hamilton of McLaren won the drivers title by one point from Felipe Massa, the same margin in which the Briton lost a year ago. McLaren's team manager, Ron Dennis, would step down at the end of the year so his last season as manager would go out on a high with him finishing second. BMW Sauber's Peter Sauber, who was third, finally won a race for the first time in his 15-year career when Robert Kubica won the Canadian Grand Prix.
In France Toyota paid tribute to their former boss Ove Andersson who had died in a car crash a week before the race. Jarno Trulli finished on the podium, dedicating his finish to Andersson.
Among the other winners were Renault's Flavio Briatore and Toro Rosso's Franz Tost, who managed to outscore his sister team, Red Bull. A more interesting fact is that all the points-scoring teams were on the podium at least once this year.
