Michael Schumacher’s first F1 car up for sale

2012 F1 season

1991 Jordan-Ford 191

The car Michael Schumacher made his F1 debut with in 1991 has gone on sale.

The Jordan-Ford 191, raced by Schumacher in the 1991 Belgian Grand Prix at Spa-Francorchamps, is being sold by Memento Exclusives. No price has been quoted.

The car is one of several items being sold by former Jordan team principal Eddie Jordan.

Jordan is also selling a replica of the helmet Schumacher wore in that race, signed by Schumacher with the message: “Dear Eddy [sic], thanks for the drive at Spa 1991.”

Schumacher stunned the F1 world by qualifying seventh on the grid for his first F1 race in Belgium. But the clutch failed on his car immediately after the start.

    Whatever it goes for, this ensures that it will be 110% worth it…

    Eddie Jordan himself will provide a formal handover to the new owner of the 191 and private photographs will be taken which will be professionally framed and given to you as a memento of this special day. PLUS you will receive 2 paddock club tickets to the British 2013 Grand Prix and all certification documents will be signed by Michael Schumacher himself.

    I intend to play F1 2012 and rFactor and want to make sure that I have the best virtual driving experience possible, so I figured who better to ask then a bunch of motorsport FANATICS!
