He’s behind you!
Late on Friday evening in Bahrain, I was waiting for both of the Mclaren drivers to return from the drivers’ briefing.
At that time of the evening the paddock had emptied and I’d framed a clean shot for each driver to pose for, accompanied by the palm trees, adorned with fairy lights.
Stoffel Vandoorne was the first to appear, so I asked him to pose for a picture. At that point, Fernando Alonso came up behind and ‘photobombed’ the shot with a massive flying kick.
As I showed him the pic on the back of my camera, Alonso laughed, likening it to the overhead kick Ronaldo scored that week in the Champions League game against Juventus.
