Ferrari Stars From The Past In Bahrain

By Auto News Log • March 16th, 2010

Sakhir – There were numerous single-seaters on the track over the GP weekend in Bahrain. Apart from the 24 cars from the 12 teams taking part in the 2010 Championship 18 single-seaters were present to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Formula 1 Championship, from 1950 until today, with some ex-World Champion cars. There were also four Ferraris…and a half: together with a 375 F1, a 500 F2, a 158 F1 and a 312 T4 there was also the chassis from a 125 GPC reinterpreted as a Thinwall Special.

All these wonderful cars were driven by exceptional people: there were 18 of the 20 World Champions alive present here in Sakhir (Nelson Piquet and Kimi Raikkonen were missing), while some, like Jody Scheckter and John Surtees even sat behind the wheels of their World Champion cars. Furthermore, thanks to Bernie Ecclestone’s convincing capacities, the spectators could watch men like Ron Dennis behind the wheel of a Ferrari Formula 1 single-seater: who would have thought that?
