2001 Rubens Barrichello Signed Race Used Italian GP Ferrari F1 Suit
Following the tragedies of Sept 11th 2001 in the USA, just six days later the Italian Grand Prix in Monza was to be the next event in the Formula 1 World Championship calendar. After the FIA announced that the Grand Prix would go ahead as scheduled, Ferrari decided their cars would have black noses and not have any sponsors markings. Also their drivers would only wear plain race suits, gloves and helmets as a mark of respect of the lives lost in the tragic events. This was one of two suits used that weekend by Rubens Barrichello, who finished in second place behind Juan Montoya in the Williams. Rubens personally signed this suit and it was donated to charity where for many years it stayed in a private collection until we were able to acquire it.
