  1. Keith on row 11 on the right the picture is labelled Massa and Webber but it’s actually Alonso.

    Love the pictures and I’m so glad you posted one of Alonso getting a ride!

    1. Fixed it, thanks!

      1. got any more of Alonso on Webber’s car?

    2. Alonso riding on Webber’s car brings back images of Senna riding on Mansell’s car in 1992!

  2. Just noticed – Hamilton had “regular” overalls on rather than the special race-by-race designed ones. Anyone know why? I’m pretty sure they raced in the special ones in China and elsewhere?

    1. The competition ones are only for qualifying (perhaps practices), never for the race.

      1. I think its the whole Saturday.

      2. I think they will wear the winning design in the final race of the year.

      3. They don’t wear them on Sunday because if they go on the podium everyone will see them!

    2. The overalls on the saturday are part of design competition by Hugo Boss. Each GP weekend they wear a different one on saturday. Thats the prize of the designer.

  3. I was hoping for a close-up picture of airborne Heidfeld !
    There’s been a very nice-looking slo-mo replay on TV.

    1. Me too! :P My hopes were at a high when I saw some of the pictures were taken from the Veedol chicane too. Oh well.

  4. I’ve never looked at these pictures articles but they’re amazing. Great pictures Keith.

  5. limited space in the cockpit as it is, did Alonso’s leg interfer with the turning of the steering wheel? and it also looks like his leg was pushing against Webber’s helmet.

    1. Probably, but I don’t think it would have been a concern.

  6. First thoughts when I saw Alonso in Webber’s car: Senna and Mansell :)

    1. Same here. Also reminded me a bit of Hamilton pushing his car back to the pits at Montreal last year. I like it when F1 shows its sense of humour.

      1. Hamilton got a reprimand for that one if my memory serves me right

      2. That reminded me of Mansell pushing his Lotus in Dallas. (At least I think it was Dallas) I can’t see why they should be reprimanded for these things when no one actually gets hurt.

  7. Well here in the states we have to watch 4 races on the Fox channel… and they completely missed Alonso’s ride with Webber.

    They also missed the grid walk, full podium and all the interviews except an abbreviated bit with Hamilton.

    And then there are the commercials. Tons of them…

    Thank god the next race is back on speed.

    Great set of pictures! Keep it up Keith. This is the best F1 web site in the world.

    Hamilton may have got the victory, but Alonso got to ride an Redbull.

  9. Plenty of good images. I love Vettel’s face here, determination perhaps?

    1. Trying too hard to over-impress his fans I think.

  10. Usually I’d pick out my favourite 4/5, but these are all briliant!
