The Ferrari F2004 is one of the most dominant cars in Formula One history. During an era in which the Maranello-based team was domineering the sport, the F2004 won no less than fifteen Formula One races during the 2004 season, and allowed Michael Schumacher to win a record-breaking seventh world championship. Second position in the championship was claimed by teammate Rubens Barrichello, allowing for a 1-2 finish. To this day, the F2004 still holds the lap record at seven Formula One circuits, including five tracks still used in the sport at the current time.*The F2004 was to be the end of a hugely successful period in Ferrari’s history, having won consecutively since 1999, with 2005 seeing Fernando Alonso and Renault take the crown. Autosport Editor-in-Chief Andrew van de Burgt wrote ‘The Ferrari F2004 is one of the most iconic Formula 1 cars in the sport's history. It was the car with which Michael Schumacher won his record-breaking seventh title and is a beautiful machine with an exceptional history.’
This fine model is a 1:1 scale collector’s replica of the Ferrari F2004 steering wheel from the 2004 season with working buttons, switches and paddles as piloted by Michael Schumacher and Rubens Barichello. The F2004 gave the team it's 6th straight Constructors' Championship and 5th straight Drivers' Championship for Michael Schumacher. A F2004M also contested the first two races of the 2005 season. This replica has been hand-crafted utilising the original CAD data supplied directly by Ferrari GES and has undergone strict scrutiny by both the design and engineering teams to ensure complete accuracy in both weight and look and feel.
