Any takers for Michael Schumacher's 1991 Benetton?


Any well-heeled die-hard Michael Schumacher fan looking for a full scale piece of memorabilia might want to consider the German's Benetton B-191 which is soon coming up for auction.

Bonhams shall be handling the potential sale at the upcoming Spa Classic to be held at the Spa track on May 21.

This particular chassis made its debut with Roberto Moreno at the San Marino GP in 1991 before it was handed to team mate Nelson Piquet later on in the season.

Schumacher meanwhile made his F1 debut in Belgium with Jordan before Flavio Briatore convinced the German to jump ship and join Benetton at the following Italian GP at Monza, much to thechagrin of Moreno.

The car spent most of its life in a museum before entering restoration in 2016.

In case you're wondering, it is estimated to fetch between £640,000 and £810,000.
