Recently Lewis Hamilton caused great controversy in his last F1 race where he finished third on the podium, but what caught the attention was not so much his success in the Carrara, but for a particular gesture that he made of the most natural.
F1 is one of the most interesting sports but also one of the most dangerous, since the racers have to be in a car driving at high speed, as Lewis Hamilton did recently, driving at more than 200 km/h (124 mph).
Lewis Hamilton made a particular gesture while driving at over 200 km/h in Singapore.
Throughout lap 15 of the Marina Bay Street Circuit, British driver Lewis Hamilton was the main protagonist. The official account of the Mercedes AMG-F1 team in Turkey revealed the precise moment, which was evident to the thousands of followers.
“While traveling at a speed of 220 km/h, Lewis Hamilton tries to catch Norris and scratches his nose.”
After exiting a corner and during the straight before the next one, the experienced driver lifted the visor of his helmet to rub his nose while driving at over 200 km/h, as can be seen in the photographs.
After a spectacular finish in which the three drivers and Mercedes’ George Russell fought it out over the final ten laps, Sainz took the victory for Ferrari at the Marina Bay circuit, defeating Norris and Hamilton of McLaren and Hamilton of Mercedes.
