1999 Alex Zanardi Original Driver Worn Williams F1 Winter Jacket
Alessandro Zanardi is an Italian professional racing driver and paracyclist. He won the CART championship in 1997 and 1998, and took 15 wins in the series. Alex also raced in Formula One from 1991 to 1994 and again in 1999; his best result was a sixth-place finish in the 1993 Brazilian GP. He returned to CART in 2001, but a major crash in the 2001 American Memorial resulted in the amputation of his legs. Zanardi returned to racing less than two years after the accident, competing in the European Touring Car Championship in 2003–2004 and then in the World Touring Car Championship between 2005 and 2009, scoring four wins.

The jacket has many sponsor branding logos embroidered on it, including Castrol, brother, PREMIERE and Nortel Networks, as well as having WilliamsF1 embroidered on the front and back. Zanardi’s name is embroidered on the left front pocket.
