Hamil­ton rev­els in the Span­ish lime­light

F1 Racing - - PARADE -

The rst F1 test took place later than usual this year, on ac­count of all the changes to the reg­u­la­tions. Usu­ally we’re in Spain ear­lier on in Fe­bru­ary, but this year the later date means there is more day­light, so the tests run for an ex­tra hour each day, nish­ing at 6pm.

This shot was taken from the in­side of the track, look­ing across to the short straight be­fore Hamil­ton en­ters the left-right of Turns 11 and 12. By the end of the day, the sun was very low, which pro­duces this high­light­ing ef­fect on Hamil­ton’s Mercedes. The golden sun­light re­ally picks out the sleek curves on the new car, which is ar­guably one of the best-look­ing ma­chines this year.
