Hamilton holds on to a slender lead
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.
