Fans’ videos from the Korean Grand Prix weekend captured an unhappy Lewis Hamilton on pole position.

And at the end of the race, few in the crowd seemed to notice or care that Sebastian Vettel had just crossed the line to win – there was little applause at all.

But while the scarcity of videos from practice shows the crowd was thin on Friday, clearly a lot more people showed up on Sunday.
