Ferrari’s 2002 F1 championship-winning car has returned to the track with a Schumacher at the wheel.

Mick Schumacher drove the F2002, which his father took to three race victories, in a run at Ferrari’s Fiorano track before the car is auctioned later this month.

Chassis number 219 was part of Michael Schumacher’s fifth title-winning season, winning at Imola, the A1-Ring and in the French Grand Prix at Magny-Cours, which secured the championship.

“It was always a dream for me to drive this car,” said Mick. “It was also the first time for me to drive a Formula 1 car on the Fiorano track so it was very special.”

The Ferrari will be auctioned ahead of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix at the RM Sotheby’s Yas Marina Circuit sale.

Along with the title-winning Ferrari, the Benetton B192 driven by Schumacher in 1992 will also be up for auction.

The B192-06 chassis was piloted by Michael to third and fourth in the German and British Grands Prix of that year respectively.

Currently owned by a private collector, the F2002 is estimated to fetch between $5.5m and $7.5m (£4.2m and £5.7m) while the Benetton is estimated to reach around $1.1m.

A portion of the price will go to the Keep Fighting Foundation; the charity set up by Schumacher’s family.

“Bringing together Mick and the F2002 was a special moment for everyone involved as well as an historic moment for both Formula 1 and Ferrari,” said Oliver Camelin, car specialist at RM Sotheby’s.

“To witness Michael’s son, in this incredible car, at the home of Scuderia Ferrari was a once-in-a-lifetime experience and truly underlined the significance of the F2002 to Michael and Ferrari’s racing legacy.”
