From Vanity to Schumacher

|Harper’s Bazaar UK’s editor-in-chief Lucy Yeomans loves speed and travelled to Spa, Belgium to see a Formula One race. She was offered the wheel of Mercedes-Benz’s latest supercar, the SLS AMG Gullwing, and revved her way across Europe’s highways along with the guys from Top Gear. From her diary: ‘Excited to be invited to watch the race from inside Schumacher’s garage. The noise of the cars in the garage is incredible. We are handed Mercedes team headphones and radios to both protect our ears and allow us to listen in to the Mercedes team talking to their two drivers. We are also given individual iPads so we can follow our drivers’ progress in close detail.’ Photography Philip Sinden Via Nowness
