A new coffee table book has been published featuring a selection of photographs taken by every F1 driver and team principal, raising money for Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital in London. The hospital has strong links with F1, through Bernie Ecclestone in particular, who was behind this initiative.
Entitled “Zoom: Through the eyes of Formula 1″ it features a wide variety of images and explanations, showing in many cases places that drivers and team principals go to relax away from racing. Kamui Kobayashi shot Mount Fuji (above), while Christian Horner photographed his dogs in the back of an old Land Rover (below), for example.
One-off prints of the images, signed by the photographer, were auctioned by Coys recently, with Schumacher’s raising £2,500. And a copy of the book, signed by all the participants including Ecclestone, will be auctioned for GOST next year.
The book comes in two versions – a £20 edition which is on sale in bookshops worldwide (WHSmith and Waterstone’s in the UK) as well as a leather-bound £75 one which is limited to a print run of 250 and can only be ordered online at:
