Watch Mick Schumacher drive his father’s Ferrari F2002 Formula 1 car at the Italian marque’s Fiorano test track.
The son of the seven-time F1 world champion recently climbed aboard the car that was driven to victories at the San Marino, Austrian and French Grands Prix by his father Michael on his way to a fifth world title in 2002.
Regarded as one of the most successful cars in the sport’s history, the F2002 secured the world championship for Schumacher with six races to spare, which remains the shortest time in which the title has ever been clinched.
The car featured in the film, chassis 219, is being put up for auction by RM Sotheby’s at the season ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix from November 29-December 1.
The F2002 will be delivered to the new owner at Fiorano following an engine and transmission rebuild by Ferrari at the consignor’s expense (Est. $5,500,000 – $7,500,000 USD).
A portion of proceeds from the sale will benefit the Keep Fighting Foundation, a global nonprofit initiative founded by his family to continue Michael Schumacher’s charitable work.
The F2002 is joined at the auction by one of its predecessors, a 1982 Ferrari 126 C2 (chassis number 061), and Schumacher’s 1992 Benetton B192 (chassis number B192-06) that was driven to third at the German and Italian Grands Prix.
