We all know that Formula 1 drivers are a dab hand behind the wheel of a single seater, but how would they fare on the other side of the barrier working as a photographer? This unique book – “Zoom: Personal Images and Insights from the Stars of F1″ – gives us an idea in a fantastic project all in the aid of charity.
Throughout last season, drivers were given a camera to use with which they had to take just one picture. However, it had to be an image that was important to them, be it at the circuit, away on holiday or even just at home. The images were then brought together and auctioned off at a star-studded event in London in February, that saw tens of thousands of pounds raised in aid of Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital. Fernando Alonso’s photo of the crowd under the podium at Monza was the biggest seller, going for over £3000, whilst Bernie Ecclestone ended up buying his own photo that was taken from his home in Switzerland.
However, you too can now see the fantastic images that have been snapped after the release of a book that compiles all of the shots. As well as photos from all 22 full-time drivers in the 2013 F1 season, there is a great foreword from Bernie Ecclestone and shots from many F1 legends including Michael Schumacher and Damon Hill.
However, that’s not all! In association with Zoom and Formula Money, Richland F1 is giving away a copy of this fantastic book which is a must for any Formula 1 fan.
