Ferrari set a record for the most consecutive points finishes after both the team’s drivers finished in the top ten at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on Sunday.
The Italian team has had at least one driver scoring points in the last 65 races in a row, a trend which began at the German GP in 2010.
Fernando Alonso finished the race at Yas Marina in fifth place while teammate Felipe Massa ended up in eighth.
"Considering our start positions, the outcome of this race is positive and we leave Abu Dhabi aware we have limited the damage," said team principal Stefano Domenicali. "We knew we had a difficult weekend ahead of us and we paid the price for our results in qualifying.
"Despite that, I am pleased with the performances from Felipe and Fernando, because both of them managed to give it their all on a track that was hostile to us," he added.
McLaren’s record run had ended at the Canadian GP earlier this year when neither of its drivers scored a point.
Alonso has not won a race since the Spanish GP in May, but with Kimi Raikkonen out early in the race he consolidated second place in the drivers' standings.
