I see that MS's son will be doing a lap in his dad's first ever winning F1 car as a 25th-anniversary tribute.

No, he already ran the car at Spa nearly a week ago. Maybe they're preparing for a 2nd go of it?

Yeah, it was a practice for the demo later this month, from the article you posted:

Quote:
He’s set to give the B194 a demo run at this month’s Belgian Grand Prix, an hour before the start of the race. The exhibition drive is to celebrate the 25th anniversary of his father’s first F1 win at the 1992 Belgian GP.

The initial test, to get a feel for the car, reportedly took place last Wednesday and was revealed – with a number of pictures (including the two in the tweet below) by Belgian website DHnet.be on Saturday.

That website has pics too. With the blue Pirellis, making it so ugly...

First championship winning car not first race winning car (just to be clear)

Recalling an advertisement from when this, or a sister car, was put up for sale some years ago, it would be interesting to know whether it (still) has traction control on board...

I'll be listening out for it next week. :D

Lets just hope they're not refuelling it using the original fuel rig
