Zoom: Through the Eyes of Formula 1 Coming Later This Month

Zoom: Through the Eyes of Formula 1, the first ever book of photographs taken by the stars of a sport, will be released worldwide later this month.

The book contains photographs which were taken by every Formula One driver and team boss and were sold in aid of London’s Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity (GOSHCC). The photos lift the lid on the private lives of the world’s most famous racing drivers, and include Lewis Hamilton’s ‘driver’s eye’ view from the cockpit of his car in the pits at Spa-Francorchamps, Sebastian Vettel’s favourite Alpine scene and Bruno Senna’s beach paradise.

The drivers and team principals of every F1 team were asked to take a photograph of their chosen subject and those images were auctioned by Coys in aid of GOSHCC online and at a star-studded live auction in September.

Michael Schumacher’s view from the driving seat of his Mercedes was the most sought after photograph and fetched £2,500 under the hammer. The seven-time world champion said: “I am delighted that my ‘the office’ photograph fetched so much for this very worthwhile cause. The image encapsulates F1 for me; the cockpit is where I feel completely at home and everything else is second nature. Great Ormond Street Children’s Charity has a strong link to our sport and I was glad to be able to support them through the Zoom auction.”

The 104-page hardback book is published by Dennis Publishing and will be released on Thursday October 25. The standard edition will retail at £20, but there is also a limited edition of just 250 copies, with a leather cover and slipcase, priced at £75.
