This is a 1/20 Scale 2001 Ferrari Formula One Car (French Grand Prix|
Version) Plastic Model Kit by Tamiya.
In the 2001 racing season, Ferrari's new F2001 machine would capture the
Constructors' and Drivers' Championships. The F2001 is equipped with the long-
itudinally mounted 3000 Ferrari Tipo 050 V10 engine incorporating an electro-
hydraulic 7-speed gearbox in pre-machined welded titanium. After the ban was
lifted on traction control, launch control and other high-tech devices at the
5th race in Spain, the F2001 was fitted with an arsenal of new equipment to
further outclass rivals. By the 13th race, Schumacher had already clinched the
championship with 9 wins, earning him 53 total wins in his career, to become
the most successful F1 driver of all time and the Ferrari F2001 the undisputed
top machine in F1 history.
