Schumacher's Ferrari sold - "only" 13 million euros
Five years ago, another "Ferrari" driven by Schumacher in the 2001 championship was sold for 7.5 million dollars, so the previous record was broken at this auction, according to RTS.
The auction house predicted that the maximum price would be around 9.5 million euros, so this sale exceeded all expectations. It is a "Ferrari" F2003-GA, chassis 229, the vehicle with which Schumacher won his sixth world title and the penultimate of his remarkable career. With this car, the German champion won five victories in nine races, including the Italian Grand Prix in Monza.
