Charles Leclerc Takes Schumacher’s World Beating Ferrari For A Spin
What do you do to prepare for the upcoming Formula 1 season to psych yourself up and put yourself in a winning mood?
If you are Charles Leclerc you take the “winningest” Ferrari of 5 times Monaco Grand Prix winner Michael Schumacher and take it for a spin.
You don’t just take any Ferrari you take one in which he won one of his seven world championships. How about the 2003 World Championship… it was Schumi’s sixth. Can you remember which Ferrari? It was the Ferrari F2003-GA the one that took the German ace past the long-standing record of five-time World Champion Juan Manuel Fangio—it was also the most influential chassis in helping Ferrari to win its historic 13th Constructors’ Championship. One chassis came up for sale in Sothebys and flew away at over 13 million dollars.

Charles must have had a blast driving this monster – including at night even – taking it through its paces on the Abu Dhabi circuit. So much fun that he raved about it on social media. Check it out… you get the feeling that Charles was on an emotional high.
The timing is just right to focus on winning with the new F1 season just around the corner. The pilots have their first race scheduled at the beginning of March,
in less than a month, in Bahrain for the first thrilling battle of the year.
