The Footwork FA15 was a Formula One car with which the Footwork team competed in the 1994 Formula One season. The number 9 seat was taken by Christian Fittipaldi and the number 10 seat was taken by Gianni Morbidelli. The team never employed a test driver. The engine was a Ford HBE7/8 3.5 V8. The team did not have a main sponsor.
The FA15 was very competitive in the early races of the year: Morbidelli qualified sixth in Brazil, Fittipaldi finished fourth in Aida (where Morbidelli retired from fifth), and Fittipaldi qualified sixth and ran fifth in Monaco before he suffered a gearbox failure, whilst Morbidelli qualified seventh. But after that, the team's performance began to suffer, with Morbidelli only finishing four races in the entire season and Fittipaldi frequently finishing outside the points. This was mainly caused by the regulation changes after the death of Ayrton Senna, which undermined the aerodynamic advantages of the FA15.
However, the team still managed the occasional good performance. Morbidelli ran well in Canada, whilst Fittipaldi finished sixth, only to be disqualified due to being underweight. In Germany the cars finished fourth and fifth, with Morbidelli scoring a point in Belgium and qualifying a strong eighth in Jerez for the European GP.
