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.
