Zoom F1 auction raises over £20,000 for charity

Photographs taken by drivers and team principals raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital, with Bernie Ecclestone winning the bidding for his own picture
A charity auction of photographs taken by F1 drivers and team principals has raised over £20,000.

The Zoom auction – which was raising funds for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity – took place in London on Friday. The pictures included photographs from Fernando Alonso, Nico Rosberg, Lewis Hamilton, Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber.

Bernie Ecclestone had also donated a photograph but after joining auctioneer Chris Routledge on the stand to help sell the picture he then entered in to a bidding war himself. In the end, Ecclestone won his own photograph with a bid of £2,500.

An image of a boat on a lake taken from a train by Michael Schumacher – auctioned off with the blessing of his family – also sold for £2,500. While further lots included seven Nikon Coolpix S99500 cameras that have been signed by Sebastian Vettel, Kimi Raikkonen, Damon Hill, Jacques Villeneuve, John Surtees, Alain Prost and Sir Jackie Stewart.

"It was an overwhelming night with some of the greatest stars of F1,” Routledge said. “Being in the same room with Damon Hill, Chris Horner, Suzi Perry and Bernie Ecclestone was a fantastic experience for the noblest cause, the Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity."
