A race suit Oscar Piastri wore during the 2023 Qatar Grand Prix weekend is being auctioned off to help raise money for a Cheetah sanctuary.

The suit was worn by Piastri during Free Practice 1 and 2 in Qatar, where he claimed his first sprint victory and also his best F1 finish to date of second place as Max Verstappen wrapped up his third drivers' title during the Lusail weekend.

Signed by the Australian, all profits raised will go to the Ann van Dyk Cheetah Centre in South Africa, located just north of Johannesburg.

The centre receives no government funding as a non-profit organisation, with its work ongoing since 1971 to help ensure the conservation of Cheetahs, and other endangered species.

Full details on the auction are available to find by following this link.
