Here is a unique opportunity to land a piece of motor racing history, since Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton race suits up for auction on CharityStars.com. With the victory on the track of Suzuka, the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS team won its fourth title in the constructors championship and forged ahead in the drivers’ ranking that sees Nico Rosberg firmly in command with 313 points, followed by teammate Lewis Hamilton with 280. With four races still to contest in the Championship, the two top drivers have set an overwhelming pace, conquering spots on the podium 25 times: 15 victories, 4 second and 6 third places. The very week that this first accomplishment of the season is being celebrated, the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS team is sending its top drivers back on the track and donating the race suits belonging to Nico and Lewis to Laureus Sport for Good Italia Foundation in a fundraising effort to support the Italian populations that were hit by the earthquake.
The two race suits were autographed by the Mercedes-Benz top drivers after having been used during the most important part of the season, achieving stellar victories. Specifically, Nico’s race suit accompanied the German driver from the Austrian Grand Prix to Hockenheim, by way of Silverstone and Hungaroring. Hamilton’s race suit, on the other hand, held the highest place on the podium at both Monaco and Montreal, taking part in six races, from Sochi to Baku.
From today until October 30th the two race suits, which have been autographed by the drivers, will be auctioned in two individual lots on the website charitystars.com/mercedes.
