The photo Fernando Alonso took of the crowd from the Italian GP podium is up for grabs in the Zoom auction for GOSHCC.

Raising money for the Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity, the Zoom auction is an annual event.

All the drivers and team bosses have been asked to take a photograph of their chosen subject and those images will be signed and auctioned by Coys ( at a star-studded event on 7th February at London's prestigious InterContinental London Park Lane.

One driver who has already put forward his submission is Ferrari's Alonso.

"I took this photo on the podium at the 2013 Italian Grand Prix," said the Spaniard.

"Stepping onto the Monza podium is always a special feeling, as it's the only one where you can feel all the love that the fans have for the team and it's the best prize at the end of the weekend."

Meanwhile, Nikon has also provided seven COOLPIX S9500 cameras to Zoom which have been signed by some of F1 greatest drivers including Sebastian Vettel, Kimi Räikkönen, Damon Hill, Jacques Villeneuve, John Surtees, Alain Prost and Sir Jackie Stewart.

It is the first time that cameras signed by F1 World Champions have been auctioned and all proceeds will go to GOSHCC.
