2002 Ferrari F2001B
Offered by RM Sotheby’s | Monterey, California | August 16-19, 2023
Ferrari’s F2001 was a dominant car in Formula One. Michael Schumacher won eight races in an F2001, securing the driver’s and constructor’s titles. For the start of the 2002 season, Ferrari tweaked the prior year’s chassis and dubbed it the F2001B. This car was used by Schumacher for the first two races of the 2002 season and the first three for teammate Rubens Barichello.
This chassis, #215, was a success right out of the gate. It’s competition history consists of:
- 2002 Australian Grand Prix – 1st (with Schumacher)
- 2002 Malaysian Grand Prix – 3rd (with Schumacher, from pole)
Schumacher won the title again in 2002, using the F2002 for the rest of the season. They used 3.0-liter screaming V10s during this era. This car is one of likely two built, and it’s a race winner to boot. You can read more about it here.
