ANKARA – Seven-time Formula 1 world champion Michael Schumacher's Ferrari F2003-GA car was sold for USD14.8 million at an auction in Geneva on Wednesday.

"From World Champion to world record holder, the most successful Ferrari F2003-GA car is now the most valuable modern F1 car in history. The car Michael Schumacher drove en route to his sixth title has sold for CHF14,630,000 (USD14,873,327) at Sotheby's Luxury Week in Geneva," RM Sotheby's said on Twitter.

In 2017, another Schumacher-driven Ferrari, which was F2001, was sold for USD7.5 million by Sotheby's in New York.

Germany's Schumacher, 53, remains in recovery since suffering a head injury in a skiing accident in December 2013.

He was placed in a medically induced coma for several months after the accident. His family was allowed to move him back home in September 2014. (Anadolu)
