Lewis plays patriot games
A few years ago I remember Lewis Hamilton winning in Montréal and coming down the pitlane waving a Union Jack; I wondered if he might do the same again this time.
I was shooting the end of the race from Turn 1 and afterwards sprinted back to the pits and waited near parc fermé, just underneath the podium. Sure enough, Lewis did come down the pitlane holding a British ag again.
Because this was taken on a 600mm lens, it creates a low depth of eld so you can see the heat haze coming off the back of the car. You can also see all the dead bugs and bits of rubber that have splattered across the front of the Mercedes.
