Description of auction items:

1) Rear BBS Wheel Ferrari F1-2000 World Champion

Wheels immediately conjure up the world of F1. This particular wheel, in fact, was originally sported by the F1-2000. 2000 was one of the most significant years in Ferrari’s F1 career: the team scored 170 points, 10 victories and 10 poles, winning both world titles in the process. For the first time in 21 long years, a Ferrari driver, Michael Schumacher, was crowned World Drivers’ Champion while the Scuderia Ferrari won the Constructors’ title for the second year in a row. Uniquely the wheel also comes complete with its original red metal Scuderia Ferrari box. The flight case used to transport it from Maranello to the various Grand Prix not only protects it from damage but also adds to an extra touch of authenticity and value to this collectors’ item.

2) Rear wing side plate from the F2003-GA World Champion

This component was fitted to the F2003-GA World Champion, Ferrari’s 49th single-seater and the car that gave Michael Schumacher his sixth Drivers’ title and Ferrari its fifth Constructors’ crown.

3) Front wing with side plates from 2004 World Championship-winning car

This front wing with two side plates was fitted to the World Championship-winning F2004. The component was used by Michael Schumacher during the Hungarian Grand Prix, Rubens Barrichello in the Japanese Grand Prix and Valentino Rossi during a test drive at the Valencia Circuit in February 2006.

4) Closed aerodynamic cooling left side panel from the F2003-GA World Champion

This particular component was installed on the F2003-GA World Champion, Ferrari’s 49th single-seater and the car that gave Michael Schumacher his sixth Drivers’ title and Ferrari its fifth Constructors’ crown.

5) Gearbox gears from the F2001 World Champion

The gearbox gears are another essential component. Each one, including the reverse, has its own serial number and ID plate. You can’t get more genuine than that. These particular gearbox gears were installed on the F2001 used in the first championship Grand Prix of the 2002 F1 season. These races contributed to Michael Schumacher winning his fifth World Drivers’ title and the fourth World Constructors’ title for the Scuderia Ferrari. A thoroughly satisfying season with 15 wins out of 17 races.
