Hamilton holds on to a slen­der lead

F1 Racing - - PARADE - L:orenzo Bel­lanca

One of the big sto­ries from that crazy race in Baku was of Lewis Hamilton’s head­rest com­ing loose soon af­ter the race had restarted fol­low­ing the red-ag stop­page. I was stand­ing at the rst cor­ner and could see that he was try­ing to clip it back into po­si­tion as he came down the straights.

What I like about this pic­ture is the early-evening sun cast­ing long shad­ows across the track and, in the dis­tance, the shim­mer­ing Fer­rari of Se­bas­tian Vet­tel hunt­ing down the lead­ing Mercedes.

In the end Lewis had to pit to have his head­rest re­placed, while Vet­tel was pe­nalised for his mo­ment of mad­ness. So ul­ti­mately both lost out.
