By: Alexander den Hartog

One of the most iconic Ferrari F1 cars is for sale at RM Sotheby's in April: the F1 2000 #198. In 2000 Michael Schumacher won his third F1 World Champion title, but the first one with Ferrari. This car was one of the cars that brought the world championship back to Ferrari since 1979. Serving initially as the Scuderia’s spare car, it was entered in four races: Brazilian Grand Prix (Q: 3rd, 1st position), Spanish Grand Prix (Q: pole & 5th position), Monaco Grand Prix (Q: pole & DNF) and Austrian Grand Prix (Q: 3rd, DNF).

After its race career the car was completely rebuilt in Maranello. In March of 2001, the car was displayed at the Geneva Motor Show on Ferrari’s stand and subsequently sold to Ferrari collector Kevin Crowder of Texas, who had the car Ferrari Classiche certified in 2005 and prepared for use in F1 Clienti events. The current owner purchased chassis 198 in 2016, and has also driven it in several Ferrari Corse Clienti events.

RM Sotheby's sells the car at an online auction from 3-12 april 2023. The car is estimated at a price of $ 7.500.000 - $ 9.000.000.
