The very best F1 photography
This year’s Spanish GP was a defining moment in the 2017 drivers’ world championship, with Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel banging wheels on track in their battle for victory. Hamilton came out on top that day, beating Vettel by just a few seconds to claim his first win since China.
I took this shot of the two of them just before the beginning of the race, when all the drivers line up for the national anthem. It reminds me of when you have two boxers trying to avoid making eye-contact before a fight. You can see behind his sunglasses that Lewis is deep in concentration ahead of the race – he’s really getting psyched up for the battle ahead.
