PIC­TURES OF THE YEAR

World’s most pho­to­genic sport: cap­tured

F1 Racing - - FRONT PAGE - to Abu Dhabi

In a sport de­fined by the re­lent­less pur­suit of speed, it’s almost coun­ter­in­tu­itive that a static im­age has the power to per­fectly en­cap­su­late the emo­tion, drama, in­ten­sity and pas­sion that un­der­pins the ul­ti­mate form of mo­tor rac­ing. But that’s ex­actly what great photographs do: cap­ture and pre­serve the mo­ment for­ever.

Like stealth preda­tors wait­ing pa­tiently for their prey, elite For­mula 1 snap­pers know the im­por­tance of be­ing in the right place at the right time. Whether it was the on- and off-track in­ci­dents that de­fined the ti­tle bat­tle be­tween Lewis Hamil­ton and Nico Ros­berg, the un­con­tained ex­cite­ment of Daniel Ric­cia­rdo win­ning his first race, or the ab­so­lute com­mit­ment dis­play by all the driv­ers on the grid, our shoot­ers cap­tured all the key mo­ments of 2014. An­tic­i­pa­tion, fo­cus, ela­tion, heart­break – that’s what F1 is all about.
