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)

You have to ask -- who got into the background of the Wolff/Lowe selfie? 😉

2

Wasn't deliberate, looks like he just tripped....sideways 😉

The Malaysian GP promoter, I believe

Check out the photo spread done for the Bonhams auction (where Newey purchased the car) & Motorsport. So real you could smell the rubber and oil. I actually emailed the photographer (thanks Google) and got a very nice reply back.

Peter Windsor has a great website that has some excellent work from the past,particularly on Jim Clark...

Cheers for the link PhilipB.

Ps The Lotus should be in a car museum where everyone can see it.

Shame its in private hands.

But at least it's owner is a F1 car specialist 🙂 & he'll probably race/parade Iit at Goodwood etcetra.

Though probably better its raced in the hands of a F1 racer rather than Newy.

Newy has had his fair share of prangs, offs & barrier clips racing vintage cars ::-D .

Brillo 🙂

Note the enormous dimensional differences between that Lotus (looks like a 49) and a modern F1 machine. Vast track and minimal wheelbase.

The enormous dimensional differences between the Lotus and a modern F1 machine pale in comparison to the enormous dimensional differences between Paddy and Toto 🙂

You look at the radical change Chapman introduced with the 49 and everyone accepted it - F1 used to be the high point of technology! Now if someone tried to do something as radical every team would object and get it banned!

Adrian's garage looks to be home to some very interesting things... not least an orange McLaren...
