The man at the centre of attention
Every year the new world champion poses with his team, then afterwards there is a scrum where photographers and TV crews surround them to capture more intimate moments of joy.
For those main team celebrations I was shooting on a longer lens and focusing on Hamilton, but then I had to swap cameras, so I came to the scrum late and behind a number of other photographers.
I used a wide lens to show the extent of the group surrounding him, but that also enabled me to capture the crowd in the grandstand above the pits.
As the skies are darkening, Hamilton stands out in this one frame as he’s lit by another camera’s flash.
