A place to discuss the characteristics of the cars in Formula One, both current as well as historical. Laptimes, driver worshipping and team chatter does not belong here.

Where are they? : )
And am I seeing a Ferrari 'V' intercooler and some parts of the 2014 turbo air-box in these pics?
Why do this car have 2014 internals? wont Ferrari adopt a split turbo PU in 2015?
Why do this wind tunnel model have those kind of internals at all?

And the engines cylinder head seem to have a V shaped spindle between its upper mounting points, like the Merc engine

I wouldn't say they are bargains. There's nothing in them, just shells probably made of lifed parts. Everything is stripped from them except bodywork and things that make them roll. Everything went for stupid money today. Don't forget that £15k on that nose doesn't include premium or VAT so the buyer paid nearly £20k for that nose. Unless it's a child bored at school...

Yeah the nose was ridiculous, I bet (if it was a real bid) the winner kicked themselves when they saw an entire car go for £21k

And yes I know the cars where non runners but when you consider wings were going for £5k, tubs for £7k side pods for £2k wheel sets for £2k, boxes of wishbones for £1k, random hubs for £500 the person who bought the whole car got the whole lot much cheaper and it's a much better display piece.

I wouldn't be surprised if it was reasonably high, and bought by another F1 team. Caterham and Sauber would certainly like to get a look at how their aero details are working I'm sure. It would probably still be interesting to teams higher up the grid too.

Hi All
I attended the auction today only roughley 30 people physicly attended. Although the was at times between 1000 - 5000 online bidders. Auction lasted 11 hours which was pretty grewsome as they had a few delays with the online part of the auction which helds things up.

Loads of crazy prices paid for things like the front wing which has been already mentioned and even for framed photos going for like 800 pound.

what did i get
crap loads of marussia trousers !
12 bbs rims
marussia mro2 and mr03 monocoque moulds and i think there is a nose cone mould too.

P.s im from Rotherham so very sad to seen marussia fold . As they started life at Dinnington just down the road

Rumor is that Gene Haas is wanting to buy one of the MR03 chassis from 2014 in order to run it as a preparation car for 2016.

Probably a wise move as it will make Haas/Ferrari integration quicker.

Phase 2 of the sale will be done in late January/early February, thats when more of the teams trackside gear will go and also gear that was used to run the MR03s.

Once again, thanks to DisgruntledMarussian for all his thoughts.

People are literally losing their minds on the auction today, for example lot 2080 (pillar drill) sold for £350 (so £462 total with Buyer Premium and VAT), you can buy the exact drill brand new all in from Machine Mart for £260! Quite insane.
