In good company
Up bright and early to film a link feature around the beautiful roads near the Belgium circuit and near the old part of the track, with ex-cycling world champion Tom Boonen, F1 driver Stoffel Vandoorne & F1 veteran David Coulthard. Can DC keep up with the pro and the youngster, I wonder?
Speaking to Max Verstappen
After a quick bacon sandwich and a coffee, I dash over to film presenter Lee McKenzie speaking to Max Verstappen about being at his ‘home race’. The crowd are definitely behind him today.
We’ve gone live on air and I’m filming our lead presenter Steve Jones talking with our analysts David Coulthard, Mark Webber & Susie Wolff about their pre-race predictions and the latest driver/team news. Can Lewis secure his 200th win?
Dash to the pit lane
The race is about to start so I need to dash over to the pit lane and film the cars leaving the garages. Over the years I’ve learned to run pretty quick with nearly 10lb on my right shoulder!
Hamilton secures win at his 200th race
The race is over! Our presenting team are back together in the pit lane to talk through the race action. The battle between Hamilton and Vettel was fierce, with Hamilton holding Vettel off to secure his 58th career victory at his 200th race! There’s much to discuss…
5 minutes with the race winner
Final job of the day – we grab 5 minutes with race winner and arguably one of Britain’s finest sportsman, Lewis Hamilton. He fought hard and held off a charging Sebastian Vettel to win. He was shattered, but happy.
