The best im­ages from Sin­ga­pore and Rus­sia

F1 Racing (UK) - - CONTENTS - Pho­tog­ra­pher Steven TEE/LAT Where Ma­rina Bay, Sin­ga­pore When 10.09pm, Sun­day 16 Septem­ber 2018

From the mo­ment he an­nexed pole po­si­tion on Satur­day with one of those sig­na­ture laps where he finds a hith­erto un­ex­plored level of speed, Lewis Hamil­ton was odds-on to win the Sin­ga­pore Grand Prix.

While this edi­tion of the race wasn’t es­pe­cially com­plex or ex­cit­ing in nar­ra­tive terms (one-stop­pers are fairly easy to ‘read’ from track­side), Sin­ga­pore re­mains one of the most pho­to­genic For­mula 1 des­ti­na­tions. The or­gan­is­ers are savvy to the power of the im­age, and one of the new fea­tures this year was a huge screen un­der the win­ner’s park­ing spot.

The screen made for a pow­er­ful back­ground when shoot­ing from above. Lewis’s body lan­guage is in­ter­est­ing, too: he’s un­usu­ally muted, a sign of the tor­ture the body goes through dur­ing this race. De­tails Canon EOS-1DX MKII, 35mm lens, 1/500th @ F4
