Gallery: 1992 Benetton B192 Formula One
On a rainy Sunday at Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium, Benetton’s B192 set a snowball rolling down a very, very long slope – giving Michael Schumacher the first of his ninety one Formula One Grand Prix victories.
Designed by Ross Brawn and Rory Byrne and raced by Michael Schumacher and Martin Brundle during the 1992 Formula One season, Benetton’s B192 was a consistently competitive car. The pair scored points at every outing of the season and Schumacher was one of only four drivers to snatch a win from Nigel Mansell and his dominant Williams FW14B.
Benetton took third place in the constructors’ title, behind Williams and McLaren, with one win, thirteen podium finishes and two fastest laps. Schumacher finished third in the drivers’ title ahead of Ayrton Senna, Gerhard Berger and Martin Brundle, who finished sixth with a season best finish of second at Monza.
This lovely and significant Formula One car is up for sale at Hall and Hall, ready to race and eligible for Historic Formula One. Head to their website here and check it out for the full details.
