With the drivers left to choose their own subject, the varied collection includes highlights such as Lewis Hamilton's driver's eye view from his car at Spa-Francorchamps, German driver Sebastian Vettel's favourite view of the Alps and Bruno Senna's own idyllic beach scene.

The auction even has backing from Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone, who commented: "The auction is a super idea. It will hopefully raise a lot of money for the hospital and the teams will get coverage."

Antonia Dalmahoy, the director of corporate partnerships at Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity, added: "The images give real insight into the drivers' personalities and we're really looking forward to the auction."
