Friday's Ferrari

The SeeRed meeting at Donington Park in September 2005 included a 'Demonstration of Italian Racing Cars' and included amongst them was the car pictured below.
It's Uwe Meissner's 1997 Ferrari F310B, a car that was driven by Michael Schumacher and Eddie Irvine in the 1997 season. Ferrari finished second to Williams in the Constructors' Championship and Schumacher finished second in the Drivers' Championship, but his record for the season was expunged because he deliberately drove into Jacques Villeneuve's car as the Williams driver was overtaking him in the final race of the season, the European Grand Prix in Jerez. Eddie Irvine finished in seventh place in the Drivers' Championship which was won by Jacques Villeneuve. Uwe Meissner's car is chassis number 172.
