Rosberg raises money for charity with iconic shot


A dramatic shot of Nico Rosberg's Mercedes racing through the Degner curves at Suzuka last year has prompted the reigning world champion to sell signed prints of the moment for charity.

The picture depicts Rosberg's W07 on full load during last year's Japanese Grand Prix and has generated a huge buzz within the F1 community which has praised the striking photograph.

"It is seldom that you see the forces in an F1 car so clearly on a photograph," Rosberg said at the time.

"It was a special capture - very impressive. Even the tyre was deforming and everything. It was amazing - and it was a normal lap.

"It wasn't like something specific happened - it was just like a normal lap."

At Rosberg's request, the author of the work, photographer Peter Fox, has made available a limited edition run of A2 prints, signed by the world champion with a certificate of authenticity.

A share of the proceeds from the sale will go to two charities chosen by Rosberg,  Viva Con Agua, which helps provide drinking water and basic sanitation for the world's poor, and Water Aid.
