Memorabilia pertaining to Schumacher - currently fighting for his life following a skiing accident - regularly sells well, due to his place in the annals of F1 history.

In 2012, an F1-2000 raced by Schumacher in the 2000 Austrian Grand Prix made $1m in RM Auctions' Monaco sale, while this January his 1998 Ferrari F300 sold for $1.7m at Barrett-Jackson in Arizona.

We have this signed photograph of Sebastian Vettel available.

The auction also includes an Oscar presented to art director Joseph C Wright.
