Formula 1 drivers and team principals have once again teamed up to show off their photography skills and raise money for London’s Great Ormond Street Hospital.

The 2016 Zoom F1 charity auction features a series of signed pictures taken by all of the drivers from the 2015 season that offers a snapshot into their lives and interests, as well as those of their team bosses.

Lewis Hamilton captured his dog Roscoe sitting happily in front of the Colosseum in Rome, while Daniel Ricciardo took a selfie as he enjoyed a break during a bike ride through the desert and Kimi Raikkonen snapped an mini ice hockey mascot his mechanics had fitted to his car’s antenna.

All of the F1 photographers have signed their work and the prints will be auctioned off at a gala evening at the InterContinental Park Lane hotel in London on 5 February.

This will be followed by an online auction of a selection of the signed photos on the Coys website that is open for anybody to enter.

Here are some of the images:

Daniel Ricciardo: " Being in the middle of the desert - it's a peaceful yet exciting experience. One that involved the odd camel too!"
