Charles Leclerc was given the opportunity to drive Michael Schumacher's championship-winning Ferrari from the 2003 season.

Equipped with a nostalgia-inducing 3-litre V10, Leclerc shared a video of the onboard camera as he powered round the Abu Dhabi circuit.

Remarkably, their 2003 car only competed in 12 of the 16-race F1 season. The late arrival of the car meant Schumacher and teammate Rubens Barrichello ran the 2002 car for the first four races of the season.

The car was driven to seven F1 wins, and claimed the fifth of their six-year Constructors' Championship streak.
