How lucky was I to be invited to both qualifying and race day for the British Grand Prix in July? On Saturday Michael Schumacher came to speak to us and to top that Lewis Hamilton came and spent time with us on Sunday, before the race.
It was a fantastic day and I took some pictures that I really enjoy. Here are a few I want to share.
Lewis and the Doughnut. At the end of the race and on the wind down lap, Lewis pulled off the circuit at Stowe corner and executed a doughnut for the fans. Smoke from the tyres was much appreciated by the fans who recognised this as Lewis thanking them for their support. I was on continuous shooting both leading up to and through this move so I picked this one out as representing the height of the action.
This one is Lewis Hamilton speaking to us before the race. He was so relaxed, cracking jokes and making us all feel like this was not “just another contractual Personal Appearance”. Really topped the day off nicely for me.
