Chinese Grand Prix: Hamilton wins three in a row
Mark Sutton: "Lewis taking his third victory of the season reinforced that Mercedes is the team to beat in 2014. When he crossed the finish line and pumped his fist in the air he was still moving at around 200km/h, so it was experience of following a car and utilising the auto focus on my Nikon D4 to capture every moment of his victory."
