Hamilton-Vettel: So near yet still far apart

Photographer Vladimir Rys, well known in motor sport for his outstanding aesthetics in his work, took this striking pic yesterday of Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel.

It pretty much sums up the current relationship between the two men, as defined by their mutual respect tinted with a spice of elusive wariness.

There weren't any fireworks in yesterday's media conference, but had there been, poor old Kevin Magnussen, subtly concealed here in this shot, would have found himself in the middle of an uncomfortable crossfire.
