The Formula 1 paddock has come together and shown its support for 17-year-old Billy Monger following his life-changing accident at Donington Park earlier this month.

Monger lost both of his lower legs after a high-speed accident during the F4 race 12 days ago, prompting the motorsport community to rally around and raise over ?750,000 in donations to aid the youngster's rehabilitation.

A number of F1 personnel sent their best to Monger and promoted the crowdfunding page, with Max Verstappen and Jenson Button also making donations worth ?15,000.

The F1 paddock's support for Monger was clear with the start of practice in Sochi ahead of this weekend's Russian Grand Prix, as a number of cars and helmets sported stickers reading 'Billy Whizz'.
