Three into two
I’m convinced this will be the defining moment of the 2017 F1 season: the three-way shunt between Max Verstappen and the Ferrari duo of Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Räikkönen.
This shot captures the aftermath of the moment the two Ferraris pincered Verstappen. Already the cars are travelling at such speed that simple contact triggers a chain reaction that wipes out these three and dooms a fast-starting Fernando Alonso (car 14).
Alonso thinks he’s avoided the shunt, but the wreckage catches up with him at Turn 1. It’s an illustration of the savage amounts of kinetic energy unleashed during the start of a Formula 1 grand prix.
Almost out of shot – you can just see his left-hand tyres – is the eventual winner. Lewis was lucky, but brilliant.
