Schumacher's party and Button's recovery

F1 photographer Mark Sutton picks his six favourite shots from the Belgian Grand Prix

These were the gear ratios from the 191 which Michael ran in his first race because Gachot was in jail! Michael was brought in with the help of Norbert Haug - who was there and almost tearful - as one of his protégés. So it was his celebration and all of the drivers showed up, and in the second picture he'd just opened this keg of beer and given them all a glass, and no-one else was bothering to have a swig while Michael did! The Eddie situation was funny because they'd done all the other presentations but Eddie was hanging in the wings with his gear ratios knowing that he'd get one over everyone else and have his little piece on TV. I saw Eddie come in with a TV crew and thought I'd pick my cameras up again - because it wasn't really a photo night - probably because they didn't want shots of Michael getting drunk! Which was fine, everyone was having a few swigs but they probably didn't drink as much as Michael drank; he was on the keg serving all night. It was obviously Michael's weekend; everyone cheered him as he finished the race and having qualified fifth here at his first race he finished fifth on his 20th anniversary.
