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.
