A collection of personal images taken by F1 drivers, team bosses and prominent F1 figures will be auctioned in London on January 16th to raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital.
The Zoom initiative, which is backed by F1 commercial boss Bernie Ecclestone, brings together imagery ranging from racing orientated material to personal shots. One of the best is a behind the scenes photo taken by Red Bull design genius Adrian Newey of the inside of his garage (above), an Aladdin’s Cave of racing stuff he has collected over the years.
The images will go under the hammer in a special event at London’s Park Lane Intercontinental Hotel. Coys will conduct the auction. The images will be signed by the photographers.
This year images including art in Bernie Ecclestone’s garden, a photo of the Colorado river by Lewis Hamilton, a selfie by Mercedes bosses Toto Wolff and Paddy Lowe and Jenson Button’s unusual shot of the cockpit of his car (below)
