Most museums do own their cars on display while displaying other owners cars to complete the collections. Floyd Garrett in Tennessee owns most on display. Also Lemay museum in Washington owns most on display

These are also some of the most difficult cars to drive. It can hit 150 mph with ease, and will kill you in an instant if you don't know what you're doing. It's not like driving a Mustang

A - museums don't bid for private auctions. Owners display their cars at museums for free. B - you can afford to buy a $2.5m race car? You can afford to race it. It's less than $10k to rent a track for a day. You can afford a truck and trailer.

It'll probably end up in a museum or rich guy's mansion. To run this on a track would cost a fortune

Drivers aren't picked by their nationality. They are picked by their talent. Ferrari's best F1 driver was a German.
