1996 Jordan 196 Barrichello

Rubens Barrichello and Martin Brundle drove Jordan 196 in the 1996 Formula One season. The car designed by Gary Anderson and powered by Peugeot engine was regular mid-field runner and the team finished 5th in the Constructors standings. Barrichello scored 14 points and was 8th in the Drivers’ championship, while Brundle finished 11th with 8 points. Jordan  continued sponsorship deal with Benson and Hedges that saw the cars turn gold for the majority of the 1996 season, and raced for the first five races in a mustard shade that failed to impress on TV. At two races held in Germany – European Grand Prix at Nurburgring, round 4, and German Grand Prix at Hockenheim, round 11, Jordan raced with “Special F1” decals instead of “B&H”. At Nurburgring the painting was more yellow, and at Hockenheim it was gold. The model from the Brazilian Legends collection represents Barrichello’s car from the European Grand Prix.
