Max Chilton’s jump start in pictures

I’ve been at Oulton Park today watching the British Formula Three and GT races.

I was opposite the start line as the 2009 F3 championship got under way and pole sitter Max Chilton made one of the most hilariously blatant jump starts I’ve ever seen – have a look for yourself:

It’s right up there with Andrea de Cesaris in the 1992 French Grand Prix (@ 2:40):

Chilton was (eventually) penalised and Australian Daniel Ricciardo won the first two races of the season.
