Driver-in-loop cel­e­bra­tions

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

We all knew that if Lewis Hamilton won the world cham­pi­onship he would per­form his cel­e­bra­tions within the Foro Sol sta­dium sec­tion. To pre­pare for this, all of LAT’S pho­tog­ra­phers were po­si­tioned in var­i­ous lo­ca­tions around the spec­ta­tor arena.

Un­like 2017, he per­formed his donuts closer to the crowd and right in front of where I was sta­tioned, so I was able to cap­ture him mid-spin.

I pre­sume he still had to be del­i­cate on his car’s en­gine and gear­box, which have to last for an­other race, so he only per­formed two spin turns.

That puts a pre­mium on get­ting shots like this right first time.
