After a season in which they dominated the opposition, some items donated by Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber will go under the hammer tomorrow (December 1st) in a Bonhams sale at Mercedes Benz World, Surrey, England.

There is one item from almost every 2011 Grand Prix race, with the exception of Abu Dhabi.

The auction is in aid of Wings for Life, a charity with connections to the Red Bull team and features race suits from both drivers as well as a Mark Webber helmet which he wore at five Grand Prix in 2011 - Monaco, Valencia, Germany, Hungary and Spa.

Among the other eye catching lots is the set of overalls Vettel wore to win the European Grand Prix at Valencia, estimated at £4,000 -£5,000.

A signed Vettel fireproof undershirt from Malaysian Grand Prix, is estimated at just £250-£350. The notes say, "Soaked not only in sweat, but also champagne!". There is another from Hungary.

There are Webber overalls from the Spanish and Monaco Grands Prix 2011, both estimated at £1,500 to £2,000.

There are also signed gloves, balaclavas, drinks bottles and other items, including Webber's Prada sunglasses and a podium watch.

Bonhams will sell each piece to the highest bidder in a live charity auction as part of its traditional end of year sale of Important Motor Cars and Fine Automobilia at Mercedes-Benz World, Weybridge, Surrey on Thursday December 1st.
