Hamilton's photo[edit]

The photo in the article lead should show Hamilton's face clearly. The current picture might be older than some that are available, but the newer photos are unclear—Hamilton's face is obscured by a pair of large, dark sunglasses. We shouldn't be using a bad photo simply because it is more recent. His face has not changed dramatically in the last twelve months. Prisonermonkeys (talk) 10:03, 12 November 2017 (UTC)

This is what I'm talking about:

The picture on the left is larger and clearer. His eyes are not obscured by glasses. The dark background of the picture on the right blends with the glasses and the shadow of his cap, making some of the details unclear. Prisonermonkeys (talk) 10:08, 12 November 2017 (UTC)

I agree that the older photo is the better portrait. -- DeFacto (talk). 10:13, 12 November 2017 (UTC)
Yeah, the picture on the left is much better. We have no obligation to use a picture from the season the article deals with.Tvx1 10:16, 12 November 2017 (UTC)

Okay, I just deleted this photo from the article:

Valtteri Bottas 2017 Malaysia.jpg

Seriously, it's a terrible photo. With the black shirt and the black background, Bottas looks like a disembodied head floating in nothingness. What is the obsession with having the most-recent photo in an article when the photo is so poor? Prisonermonkeys (talk) 06:38, 20 December 2017 (UTC)
