Jenson Button, Brawn GP BGP001 Mercedes, 5th position, becomes World Champion.
LAT Images photographer Charles Coates had spent the whole year working in the Brawn GP garage as LAT's assigned photographer, and got to know Jenson and the rest of the team very well. As the incredible story of the near collapse of the team 12 months previously turned into success he was in the prime position to capture the emotion and celebration as they won the world championship in Brazil. This was taken on an extreme wide angle lens, very close to JB as he returned to the garage to rejoin his team after the race.
