F1 drivers complete ALS Ice Bucket Challenge
|21 August 2014 by TF1T Staff | M||Tweet
Felipe Massa became the first of the current Formula 1 drivers to complete the Ice Bucket Challenge in support of the ALS Association which is raising funds in its battle to cure Lou Gehrig's disease.
The idea behind the challenge is to pour a bucket of ice cold water over yourself and to donate a sum of money to charity at the same time, or pay more to avoid doing the challenge.
So far the viral act has raised over £25 million ($41m) for the association compared to just £1.2m ($2m) during the same period last year.
Massa posted his challenge on Twitter and then nominated three people including Daniel Ricciardo and Fernando Alonso.
Ricciardo completed his challenge in the Belgian paddock on Thursday, nominating Lewis Hamilton and Christian Horner in the process.
[Update] Hamilton completed the challenge following FP1 in Belgium.
[Update] Alonso completed the challenge following FP2 in Belgium.
[Update] Christian Horner and Adrian Newey joined in on Saturday.
