Lewis shares the cham­pagne

F1 Racing (UK) - - PARADE -

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.
