      Really?

      Is it just me that thinks that Webber without the helmet in the car looks slightly ridiculous? As if some punter in jeans, a t-shirt, and flip-flops just jumped in and took it for a joy-ride?

          As a F1 fan and as a photographer I appreciate Webber’s unique opportunity for a one time gesture on his very last trip around the circuit in a live official F1 car and for it to be captured for posterity. Anyone can do doughnuts, but this was something that will not likely be duplicated any time soon and it was unexpected. He was living the dream! Anyways, your mileage may vary. :)
