It's a really fucking good photograph. Well deserved.

Yeah, not only is it perfectly taken, it is by far the most iconic from last season. I don't think the other ones had a chance.

I don't think there is a single photo that is the most iconic.

  • You got Lewis alone on the grid at Hungary during the restart

  • This photo of Max

  • Lewis's head under Max's tire in Monza

  • Max and Lewis on the Saudi podium just before Max walks off

  • Max's final overtake on Lewis

and probably a few others I might have missed. Just goes to show how fucking nuts last year was.

It has a weird r/confusingperspective thing going as well which I very much like

I don't think it could be recreated, everything is perfect, the blur in the background, the pose and obvious frustration shown and how everything just lined up perfectly with his positioning at the time. He captured the perfect image for this moment.

It's been the background on my desktop since I was able to find the first high res image of it.

I think that’s the cherry on top of the picture. Like Max is clearly experiencing Azerbaijan right now
