Williams Will Auction Off Race Suits And Boots For Billy Monger's Crowdfunding

Felipe Massa’s race suit and Lance Stroll’s boots from the Russian GP are going up for auction

The Williams Formula 1 team is raising money for Billy Monger’s crowdfunding campaign by auctioning off Felipe Massa’s race suit and Lance Stroll’s boots from the Russian Grand Prix.

Monger suffered a horrific accident in a British Formula 4 race at Donington Park a few weeks ago after hitting a rival car.

It took two hours to remove him from his car and he was airlifted to hospital.

The 17-year-old sadly suffered life-changing injuries and had both his lower legs amputated.

A crowdfund was set up by his JHR Developments team boss Steven Hunter, reaching the £260,000 target within hours.

The current figure (as of the 25 April) stands at just over £750,000, but that looks set to be given a further boost thanks to Williams.

The race suit worn by Felipe Massa and boots used by Stroll at this weekend’s Russian GP in Sochi are going up for auction on eBay and all proceeds will go to Monger’s crowdfund campaign.

Both items will also be signed by the drivers too, as an added bonus.

It’s another incredible display of kindness, further proving the strength and generosity of the motorsport community.
