Lewis shares the champagne
It’s funny how you get used to things. Monza’s unusual but brilliant podium, which extends out over the pitlane and brings the drivers that much closer to the crowd, still feels like a recent addition even though it was built ten years ago.
The challenge here, then, is to find a different angle, while bearing in mind that the drivers might not be standing where you’d like them to be. Thanks to our friends in the Formula One Group communications team, I was shooting at the same height as the podium this year – from FOG’S office window, in fact.
Lewis then obliged by walking forwards to spray the champagne from just the right spot. He’s a pro.
