On Wednesday, both Sebastian Vettel and Charles LeClerc were present for the “90 Years of Emotion” event in Milan. The celebration was massive as the adoring Ferrari fans thronged the streets at the Piazza Duomo.
While up on stage, Sebastian Vettel treated the cheering tifosi masses to a song in Italian. Naturally, this only prompted then to either sing along or cheer louder. The current Ferrari duo were not the only ones present at the event celebrating 90 years of racing in Monza.
A whole host of drivers from the past and present also took part in the festivities. Among them were, Mario Andretti who took pole at Monza with Ferrari in 1982. Others included, Alain Prost, Jean Alesi, Gerhard Berger, Rene Arnoux, Eddie Irvine, Luca Badoer, Ivan Capelli, Giancarlo Fisichella, Kimi Raikkonen, Antonio Giovinazzi and Felipe Massa.
In addition to that, a number of youngsters from the Ferrari Driver Academy (FDA) were on hand to represent the future. They were, Giuliano Alesi, Callum Ilott, Mick Schumacher, Marcus Armstrong, Robert Shwartzman and Enzo Fittipaldi.

On stage at the Piazza Duomo a few iconic Ferraris were on display for the proud masses. This included Chris Amon’s 1967 312 F1, Clay Regazzoni’s 312 B3/74, Gilles Villeneuve’s 126 CK, the first turbocharged Ferrari to win a Grand Prix in Monaco in 1981, the Indycar prototype from 1986, Michael Schumacher’s F2002, and of course, the SF90, fresh from its win in Belgium.
Even the 1934 Alfa Romeo 8C of Tazio Nuvolari graced the stage at the Piazza Duomo. All in all, the festivities ran for a while and the city of Milan was submerged in a sea of scarlet. Admittedly, when Sebastian Vettel was asked to sing, he did look fairly embarrassed, but he took the challenge head on.
Now, LeClerc, Vettel and the Alfa Romeo duo of Kimi Raikkonen and Antonio Giovinazzi will head to the Monza circuit to commence the weekend.
