There’s a flash of silver to the side of his eye line, the wall in front of him speeding ever closer as he and the car next to him veer off course, the solid gravel the only thing that can slow them and preventing them from being crushed by the concrete. Lewis throws his hands up to cover his face the way he’s been instructed to do 100 times, his hands shaking as he does.
The car skids to a halt as pieces of gravel flick up beside him, a dust cloud almost encasing the shell of the car. Lewis waits for a second before hoisting himself out of the car, anger bubbling up inside of him now that the fear he just felt has left. He turns to look at his fellow driver, who is giving him an equal look of pure loathing and frustration from underneath their helmet; Nico.
Lewis starts awake, eyes snapping open as he sits upright, breathing heavy as he stares around at the blurred room in front of him. It takes him a second to realise that this is his bedroom and it’s the middle of the night in Monaco, not a lap of a race over a year ago in Spain. The body next to him stirs, and Lewis jumps, turning to look the now awake figure.
