Rock and roll
 
These two have been talking publicly pretty much every race. It all started with Maurizio Arrivabene’s protest about fan passes in the winter tests when he sat in the stands with Gutierrez and an engineer. I agree with him that things should be more open. I think Arrivabene has been brilliant since taking over at Ferrari, a real breath of fresh air. He’s created a great aura around himself, he’s a great character. He reminds me a bit of Luca di Montezemolo, he’s elegant in everything he does, his hair is slicked back – he’s like a rock star. Whenever he talks in the press conference he’s comical and funny. He doesn’t talk any bull and just speaks his mind – he’s like an Italian Eddie Jordan, not afraid to say anything. This is a good shot during the hive of activity on the pit before a race.

China faithful
 
I like this one as China brings all sorts of fans to the Grand Orix and there were a lot of Lewis fans. It’s amazing how many fanatical fans are there. The biggest fan club is probably Kimi [Raikkonen], I don’t know why but he seems to be the most popular in the Far East. But Lewis has lots, as do Nico [Rosberg] and Sebastian [Vettel]. Those four are probably the top four for having the most fans, then it’s probably Felipe Massa and Daniel Ricciardo. It’s nice to see the Lewis fans, they were putting up a big name of letters, some painted faces and flags that had pictures on them. There was a great one of Kimi which was a collage of other pictures from throughout his career, but this one was just as nice.

Two on one
 
I did the finish as usual, crossed over and climbed the podium tower for a bit of height. I’m never sure whether it’s the right side or the right angle, you just have to be lucky in those instances. On this occasion I was lucky as I was on the right and shooting as they shot champagne across me, if you like. There was quite a bit of emotion on that podium – or maybe it was aggression, I don’t know, it seemed a mixture of both! The champagne just seemed to carry on forever. This is just after Lewis went and sprayed the girl, which caused a bit of controversy, but he spent most of his time spraying Sebastian and Nico. The champagne shower at the end is spectacular and always makes a good shot.
