Schumacher’s title-winning Ferrari goes under the hammer


Collectors of special Formula 1 items may soon strike again. Anyone who wants to own a real Formula 1 car can pull out the wallet at an auction in Geneva next week. In Switzerland, seven-time world champion Michael Schumacher’s Ferrari is under the hammer.

Sotheby’s will auction a Ferrari from the 2003 season next week. Schumacher became world champion that year with that car. It is expected that the car will be sold at a price of about 9.5 million euros, about 9.4 million dollars. According to the auction house, the car is ready for the track and the target is circuit owners and people who collect art.

The car was driven by Schumacher in nine Grands Prix in 2003. The German seven-time world champion won five of those nine races on the chassis in question. The car has an important place in the history of Formula 1. Schumacher broke Juan Manuel Fangio’s world record in 2003. In 2004 Schumacher won his seventh world title, the record equaled by Lewis Hamilton in 2020.
