A 2006 Ferrari race suit worn by Michael Schumacher is reportedly expected to be sold for £15,000 at a Los Angeles auction.

A Ferrari race suit worn by Formula 1 legend Michael Schumacher has been put up for auction in Los Angeles.

The red and white zip-up suit, which has Schumacher's name embroidered on the belt, was donned by the German at the British Grand Prix in 2006.

The piece has been included in the Nate D Sanders auction following the news that the 45-year-old has emerged from a medically-induced coma he was placed into for six months as a result of a skiing accident.

The seven-time world champion was rushed to a hospital in Grenoble after he hit his head on a rock while skiing off-piste in the French Alps on December 29.

According to the Daily Star, the race suit is expected to fetch around £15,000 at auction.

A race suit from the 2008 Japanese Grand Prix, worn by two-time champion Fernando Alonso is also included in the auction.
