1994 FERRARI 412T1/T1B F1 3500CC V12
CHASSIS NUMBER 154
A group of Ferrari enthusiasts headed by Steve Weeber of Christchurch has brought to New Zealand a 1994 Ferrari 412T1B 043 V12, chassis number 154. This car was driven to success by Ferrari works drivers Jean Alesi and Gerhard Berger in the 1994 FIA Formula One World Championship races. Chassis 154 was driven by Alesi and Berger in four races each. Chassis 154 was the second-to-last of six 412T1 and,
later, 412T1B cars that were raced by the Ferrari works team in 1994. Chassis numbers 149, 150, 151 and 153 were used variously in the first five rounds of the 1994 F1 Championship year (Brazil, Pacific GP, Japan, San Marino GP, Imola, Monaco GP, and Spain-Catalunya) before chassis 154 was first used by Alesi in the sixth round of the Canadian GP held on 12 June 1994.
