Zoom F1 charity book goes on sale

31 Mar 2015

A new coffee table book containing images taken by all the F1 drivers and team bosses over the course of last season has gone on sale, with proceeds going to Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity (GOSHCC).

Zoom: Personal Images and Insights from the Stars of F1 is the third official book of the Zoom charity auction and features all of the unique behind-the-scenes photos that were auctioned in a star-studded event in January.

From Lewis Hamilton’s holiday snaps to the view from Kimi Raikkonen’s cockpit, the images allow readers see the world through an F1 driver’s eyes.

The 124-page book, which includes all 52 photographs from Zoom 2015 alongside descriptions of each image in the photographer’s own words, also contains a foreword by Formula One’s chief executive Bernie Ecclestone. “It has all been done for a wonderful cause,” he said. “You are getting a glimpse into a side of F1 that isn’t shown on television and as you will see, it isn’t all about fast cars and champagne.”

This year’s Zoom auction took place at the InterContinental London Park Lane on Friday 16th January. The photographs were auctioned for GOSHCC in front of a star-studded guest list, including famous faces from the world of F1 such as Bernie Ecclestone, Christian Horner and Geri Halliwell, Claire Williams, Éric Boullier, Graeme Lowdon, Adrian Newey, and event host Suzi Perry.

Christian Sylt, founder of Zoom, said: “I’d like to thank everyone who has helped make Zoom possible, especially our partners, the teams and drivers, Bernie Ecclestone and everyone else who took a photo. Fans who missed out on a chance to bid for a signed print can still support Zoom by buying this book and it’s an ideal gift for anyone interested in F1.”
