The Marussia auction
featured most of the items you’d expect to find in an F1 factory, but there were some oddities.
The nose and front wing assembly from Max Chilton’s car sold for £15,000, while a steering wheel from Timo Glock’s 2010 machine reached £2,200. Much of the merchandise, including Max Chilton caps, officials T-Shirts and team umbrellas, was sold off in bulk, and rapidly reappeared for individual sale on auction sites such as eBay. Among the more unusual items, a display mannequin fitted with a set of Timo Glock overalls sold for £700. More bizarrely, the auction included a range of boxing and football memorabilia, including a pair of signed Sugar Ray Leonard shorts, and framed Frank Bruno and Mike Tyson gloves.
