And to think, I had a draft all ready to go hailing Lewis Hamilton for his eternal dominance at Circuit of The Americas. Turns out Kimi Raikkonen had other plans.
Formula One once again put on a stunning show in Texas, with Raikkonen pulling off a surprising win. The Finn made his move from the start, passing Hamilton before the first corner, then held him off to find the top step of the podium.
Hamilton didn’t get to clinch his fifth drivers’ world championship Sunday, as his third place finish paired with Sebastian Vettel’s fourth place result didn’t give him enough of a points margin to secure the crown. The championship battles moves on to Mexico City, where Hamilton also clinched his fourth title last season.
The weather finally played nice, and the clouds moved away to give Austin, Texas some much needed sunlight. I took advantage of the great conditions, and finished up another solid week of shooting a big race. With that comes a ton of pictures for you all to enjoy.
It’s the F1 car time again!
