May 14 (GMM) At the end of the traditional ‘rest day’ in Monaco, formula one drivers on Friday are limbering up for a night on the catwalk.

They are heading to the exclusive and highly expensive VIP ‘Amber Lounge’ event, hosted by former grand prix winner Eddie Irvine’s sister Sonia.

It is a fashion show, with drivers donating their time to model designer Missoni, Elizabeth Hurley Beach and Jimmy Choo fashion to benefit the Elton John AIDS Foundation.

On Friday night, world champions Jenson Button, Lewis Hamilton and Mika Hakkinen will all be on the poolside catwalk, in addition to Nico Rosberg, Adrian Sutil, Vitantonio Liuzzi, Lucas di Grassi, Jaime Alguersuari, Heikki Kovalainen and Timo Glock.
