You know, there’s being brave, and then there being foolhardy.

Lewis Hamilton won the Sochi Grand Prix in Russia, in the presence of Russian President Vladimir Putin, a very big fan of the sport.

Lewis, known for his over the top celebratory antics, sprayed the Russian Premier whilst celebrating his win. It’s not the wisest move to antagonise Putin, who had presented the trophy to the race car driver.

He seems to had taken it in good stride though.

The Briton beat Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel of Germany, and Force India driver Sergio Perez of Mexico to first place.
