A little moment of F1 history – the photo Fernando Alonso took of the huge crowd of tifosi beneath the podium at last year’s Italian Grand Prix – is coming up for sale next month.
It was a moment celebrated by many fans of the sport.
And a one-off signed print of that photo is going under the hammer at a Coys auction in London on Friday February 7th in aid of Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital, a favourite cause of F1 commercial boss Bernie Ecclestone.
The event is being held for the second year.
The drivers and team principals of every F1 team were asked to take a photograph of their chosen subject and those images will be signed and auctioned by Coys at the Zoom event at the InterContinental London Park Lane. The event will be hosted by the BBC’s F1 presenter Suzi Perry.
There are also images taken by world champion Sebastian Vettel, Lewis Hamilton, Nico Rosberg, Mark Webber as well as Martin Brundle, among a host of F1 names, going under the hammer.
