Suzuka Fans

The race fans came out in force in Japan with masks, coloured faces, flags. They also had Japanese warriors with swords and it was amazing to see them again after missing Japan last year. The Ferrari fans were a bit crazy, I must admit. They had horses on their heads, Fernando Alonso flags – but these were home-made pieces of kit which they had designed at home and built with the Ferrari emblems. All of them are very enthusiastic and it’s always great to go to the fans area, I handed out a few postcards they were happy to receive. It’s very fun because of their enthusiasm and excitement about having their photo taken – the fans are really part of the atmosphere in Japan, and that stretches back to the Mansell and Senna days.

Kicking Up Dust

I missed Hamilton going off at the first corner in FP3, but ran down there and got a shot from distance of him walking with the car while it was being craned. At that point it was quite amazing because Maldonado went off at the same corner, I was doing a rear shot of the debris left at the side of the track. He came off at that point and nearly went into the same point Lewis was in – in fact his front wing was still there. At that point I decided to do a rear shot of all the dust coming up, Maldonado just avoided the tyre wall but it created a great picture. Maldonado was very lucky to avoid the wall. That’s taken on the 500 as I’ve swung round to catch his Lotus missing the corner.
