For sale: Formula 1 car from former team of Verstappen

For those who want a unique piece of Verstappen and Formula 1 history (and have enough money), a Formula 1 car of Simtek, the team where Jos Verstappen raced in 1995, is for sale.

Story behind the Simtek car

This is the Simtek S951 of Domenico Schiattarella, Verstappen's teammate at the time. In 1995, Jos Verstappen temporarily switched from Benetton to Simtek, who also got the use of Benetton's gearbox.

This was a good thing for Simtek, because the team was in financial difficulties. The car proved to be anything but reliable, and Verstappen managed just one race before the team was disbanded after five races due to a million-dollar debt.

What you have to pay for the car is not mentioned, but it will certainly not be a bargain. More information and photos can be found at Officina Caira.
