Pretty cool links... What does Schumi drive these days? I think Ferrari gave him an FXX as a parting gift if I am not mistaken

Isn't this like asking a pro athlete what kind of sneaker, club or racket he uses? The answer is going to most likely be - "my sponsor's". I highly doubt any top driver has to go out and buy his personal car like you and I do. Either he gets it for free or at an enormous discount from someone.

Unless you're Eddie Irvine. I will never forget him making some smart-ass comment in a post race press conference wondering out loud if he could get Ferrari to hook him up with parts for his GTO. This was NOT while he was driving for them....

I miss him and his style.

Yes I think so, but that does not count since it is not a street legal car I believe. So can´t drive it on the street.

I need to say that that was not what I would expect out of them.

they dont need fast cars guys...

when you drive an f1 car for a living(extremly fast, very rough/stiff, extremly sporty lol), id imagine you would want a change(comfortable, soft suspension), to relax a bit...


or an exotic car to pick up girls

Olivier Panis used to drive Lexus cars while with Toyota. He said he didn't really care because every two weeks he drove an F1 car.

When you are driving F1 cars for a living, can any civilian vehicle ever give the same thrills?
