Over one million Euros that have been raised via the initiative will be donated to spinal cord injury research projects across the globe.
It’s the British Grand Prix this weekend, and it has always been one of the highlights on the Formula One calendar. This time around, Red Bull Racing drivers Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber will be seen emphasizing the Silverstone race circuit by driving their specially-branded RB8s over the race weekend. Organized for ‘Wings for Life’ charity, each car will feature 25,000 photos (including a picture of Formula 1 legend, Niki Lauda) on its bodywork that have been sent in by fans from across the globe.
The ‘Wings for Life’ charity is one charity that is looking to find a cure for spinal cord injury, which is why the initiative by Red Bull Racing was open to all the fans worldwide, who sought to support such a noble cause and donate their bit. The initiative has apparently raised over one million Euros and all of it will be donated to spinal cord injury research projects spread across the world.
Mark Webber commented “The paint scheme on my car for this weekend looks awesome, the guys have done a great job – let’s hope the livery gets a good result! I’m proud to be an ambassador for Wings for Life, which is doing fantastic work in its search for a cure for spinal cord injury.”
Sebastian Vettel added, “The Wings for Life cause is a special one, I care a lot about the work they are doing and have been an ambassador of the charity for many years. It’s great for the fans to be able to join Mark, the Team and me at this year’s race in Silverstone – I’m looking forward to it.”
