Mid Dec 1994 Michael Schumacher tested a Ligier in Estoril to evalute the performances of Renault V10 motor, which was bound to be installed in his 1995 Benetton. Has any of you pictures or info related to this event ?

I presume he tested the old 67 degree 3.5 litre engine in that Ligier and not the new for 1995 72 degree 3.0 litre engine he was to use in 1995 at Benetton, given that Ligier were loosing their works Renault engines at the end of the year and switching to Mugen power?

That's true. I forgot that variable David_Martin. I forgot that it was 1994 into 1995, and not 1993 into 1993 that the rules changed from 3.5L to 3L. Thanks.

Yes, and Ligier did run Mugens in 1995.

Now, all we need is a pic of Damon in the Bridgestone-liveried Ligier-Mugen that Uncle Tom and the tyre men sent him out in in the 96/7 close season... (I seem to recall it made the cover of Motor Sport a few months before it got relaunched...)

And perhaps one of Prost testing a Ligier in the 91-2 close-season, before his "sabbatical"?

They've had no shortage of champions playing around in their cars ;)
