Schumacher's 1994 car to be sold
ONE of Michael Schumacher's Benetton-Ford B194s is to be sold in an Internet auction. The car will be offered by ebay.co.uk with the bidding starting on Wednesday and lasting for 10 days. There is no indication what the car will fetch but it is expected to be hundreds of thousands of dollars. The B194 comes complete with a Cosworth engine and although it is not clear who owns the car at the moment it is thought that it may be one of a number of F1 cars which have been acquired over the years by Cosworth Racing, either as part of deals with the teams or in payment for engine bills which were not met at the time.
The money would come in handy for Cosworth at a time when the Jaguar F1 program is trying to reduce its budget needed from Ford.
