I really like this one of Nico Rosberg spraying Andy Shovlin. It’s a funny picture because it’s so much champagne and because he’s just standing there taking it. We saw those pictures a few years back when Adrian Newey tried to hide behind the trophy as he’s being sprayed, but Shovlin is stood there being absolutely blasted as if it’s nothing. If his mouth had been open he probably would have drowned in it. They sprayed the champagne so quickly that the guys who presented the trophy were still on the podium so frustratingly I’ve had to crop this as there was someone crossing in front of the frame of the original picture.

This is a remarkable picture as the guy without a helmet and wearing shorts is just there during a pit stop. I saw Daniel Ricciardo’s stop on the TV and then thought I need to get a picture of this. I ran straight across the media centre with my camera, ran down to Red Bull and shot away as they wheeled him back and then this guy is there. I knew the rules had changed with the helmet and they’re really tough on the teams and thought “he’s going to get a rollicking for that”. It’s quite a bizarre and funny picture overall because they you can see them all stood around wondering what the hell is going on, and of course it’s not what we expect from Red Bull. I just could not believe the guy was there.

I guess this is quite a different shot for a Formula One fan, seeing an actor do the post-race interview. I thought Benedict Cumberbatch brought quite a different feel to the podium, instead of having a former driver or ex-team owner there. He speaks like an actor, too, he exudes and speaks with a lot of confidence which adds to the interviews. He’s got that sort of British gentleman approach to things with his suit jacket too so I think it worked really well. Maybe they shouldn’t do it every race. If you can make sure they don’t swear on the podium then it works to have famous people up there! He presented the trophy on the Porsche race as well and you could see throughout how much he was enjoying the whole occasion.
