Steering Wheels:

  • This MOMO steering wheel of driver Mark Blundell is an impressive item in the Formula 1 steering wheel collection of the Nicolis Museum. His top-flight racing career was rather short-lived, only 5 years. This steering wheel may have been fitted on the Brabham BT59 or on the Brabham BT60, since during the 1991 F1 World Championship the first car was replaced after the second race. That year saw the British driver achieve a 6th place finish (Belgian GP), which gave him a spot in the driver standings.
