Charles Leclerc: Ferrari driver’s race helmet breaks record at Emilia-Romagna flood auction

The helmet worn by Charles Leclerc at the Monaco Grand Prix has sold for a record 306,000 euros (£262,700) to help raise funds for flood victims in Italy. Last month’s Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix was cancelled because of major flooding in the region. Auctioneers RM Sotheby’s said the amount made it the highest-priced racing helmet ever auctioned. It beats the previous record of 162,000 euros (£139,100) set in 2019 for a helmet worn by Brazilian Ayrton Senna. The ‘Charles Leclerc for Emilia-Romagna’ charity auction raised a total of £368,800, with the Ferrari driver’s race suit fetching £52,500, his boots £17,500 and gloves £36,100.
