World Champion Michael Schumacher will drive the 1951 Ferrari 375 with which Argentine driver Jose Froilan Gonzalez scored the historic Italian outfit's first Grand Prix victory.

Gonzalez, who will be present at the British Grand Prix this weekend, won at the Silverstone circuit on July 14th 1951.

Schumacher, the most successful driver in the history of the Ferrari team, will drive the 375 on Sunday around Silverstone to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Maranello outfit's first of their 141 Formula One wins in the 52 years of history of the sport.

The German star, who could equal on Sunday Alain Prost's record of most number of wins with 51, has scored 31 victories for Ferrari, as well as two Drivers' Championships.
