The Kaiser was driving this F300 in 1998 when he lost the championship after a tire puncture
Michael Schumacher is one of the most known F1 drivers in history, and one of the best, if he is not the best. He won seven world championships, with Hamilton, the only two drivers to earn it. He retired in 2012, and he suffered a ski accident in 2013, since that time his live is a mystery.
This car was piloted by Schumacher in a couple of races. He drove it when he finished in the second place in Nürburgring during the Luxembourg Grand Prix in 1998. But this car is so famous because of the Japanese Grand Prix in Suzuka. In this race, the last of the season, the championship title was on the line, the German driver was only four points away from the lead, behind Mika Häkkinen, and Michael qualified on pole. Early the race turned sour for Schumi, on the formation lap, Schumacher stalled on forcing him to start from the back of the grid. He worked hard trying to come back at the header of the race, but when he was arriving to the lead, he ran over debris from a previous accident, punctured a rear tire, and was forced to retire, losing the opportunity to win a new championship, at that time, it could be his third F1 championship.
This F300 is listed for sale on DuPont Registry by a private seller called Victor Gomez IV, located in Miami. The seller is asking price of $4.9 million for the car. Other Michael Schumacher car’s has been bought for higher prices. For example, the last Ferrari driven by the German was bought for $7.5 million, so the price of this F300 looks like so cheap.
