The auction will feature a collection of rare F1 collectibles, relating to F1 legends, past winners of the race, and current F1 drivers. Items featured will include the F1 racewear that the 2021 drivers will don at this season’s race in Monza, as well as vintage items and signed photographs and artwork.
