Hamilton’s donuts have a new flavour

F1 Racing (UK) - - CHAMPION’S PARADE -

In cel­e­brat­ing his world cham­pi­onship suc­cess, Lewis Hamilton caught a few of us by sur­prise after the race.

When he won the ti­tle at this grand prix last year, he did his ‘donut’ cel­e­bra­tions across the colour­ful painted Mex­ico track sig­nage and so I po­si­tioned my­self on that side of the cir­cuit, hop­ing to grab a tight full frame.

But when he chose to light up the rears and spin his Mercedes on the other side of the track, I was sud­denly on the wrong lens.

With­out time to fit my 600mm, I zoomed out the 70200mm to a 70mm fo­cal length to in­cor­po­rate a wider an­gle and make use of the Mex­ico let­ter­ing on the track.
