In 1969, a lot changed at Ferrari, and the consequence of these changes was the appearance of the Ferrari 312 F1 chassis, created by Stefano Iacopponi. Not too fast, completely unreliable, but revered by collectors. It was the first Formula 1 car equipped with a rear wing.
According to the press service of Ferrari, the new owner of the car asked Ferrari Classiche specialists to completely restore it to its original specification, including the Tipo 242C engine, so that he could participate in historic races. When the work was completed, Charles Leclerc was called to test the car.
