Race-winning Ferrari overalls and a complete Toyota Formula 1 car are among the items that will be up for auction later this month.
The FIA has launched an online-only auction in conjunction with RM Sotheby’s, called #RaceAgainstCovid, to raise funds for the International Red Cross and other organisations in the efforts against Coronavirus.
Ferrari has donated the race suits worn by Charles Leclerc at last year’s Belgian Grand Prix, and Sebastian Vettel in Singapore, grands prix which were won by the respective drivers.
Mercedes has also donated racing suits, gloves and boots signed by Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas, while Damon Hill has supplied a helmet and race suit used during the 1995 campaign.
Toyota, which fielded a team in Formula 1 between 2002 and 2009, has donated Chassis No. 01 of the TF109 that it used in its final campaign in the championship.
The TF109-01 was a test car for the squad and was later used by Pirelli to develop tyres upon its return to the sport.
The car will be presented as a complete race car, which includes engine and gearbox, and will sport the Pirelli test livery.
More items are set to be added in the coming days.
The auction will run from June 15 through 22.
“Since the beginning of the health crisis, the FIA and the entire motor sport community have been committed to fighting the pandemic through many initiatives such as #RaceAgainstCovid,” said FIA President Jean Todt.
“Today, we have another opportunity to show our strength and unity: I very much welcome the FIA and RM Sotheby’s collaboration for the benefit of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies’ global response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“I thank all the drivers and teams for their contributions as well as the FIA Foundation for its generous donation. To ensure this auction the success it deserves, I urge each and every one of our motor sport family to join us.”
