Grand Prix History in Scale Models

1995, Ligier, Minichamps, Olivier Panis

1995 Ligier JS41

JS41 designed by Frank Dernie was the most competitive Ligier car of the 1990s. Olivier Panis and Martin Brundle were regularly in points and occasionally on podiums during the 1995 Formula One season. Actually JS41 was the copy of championship-winning Benetton B195, differed only in engine – JS41 was powered by Mugen Honda while Benetton used Renault motor. This was possible due to influence of Flavio Briatore,  who was at that time Benetton’s  director and partial owner of Ligier. Olivier Panis, who was on his second season in F1, finished on 8th position in the Drivers’ Championship with 16 points. His best finish was second place in Australian Grand Prix at Adelaide, the final race of the season. Due to resemblance between Benetton B195 and JS41, Minichamps  used the same form for scale models of both cars. This Ligier model is designated as Benetton B195 on the underbody of the model.
