Michael Schu­macher’s son Mick drove his fa­ther’s 2004 car around the team’s Mugello cir­cuit as Fer­rari cel­e­brated their 1,000th For­mula One world cham­pi­onship race.

Fer­rari are the only team to have com­peted in ev­ery sea­son since the first in 1950, and Schu­macher se­nior brought them five ti­tles in a row from 2000-04, with most of his record 91 wins se­cured in red over­alls.

Af­ter his demon­stra­tion laps in the F2004, Fer­rari’s most suc­cess­ful rac­ing car, Mick, who leads the For­mula Two cham­pi­onship and looks des­tined for F1 next sea­son, said: “To be able to drive it now as the se­cond gen­er­a­tion is very spe­cial.”
