Chasing shadows in the Red Bull
Max Verstappen completed almost 90 laps on the second day of running in the rst Barcelona test.
I photographed him on the downhill run after the Turn 5 hairpin, just as he was turning in to the left-right sequence that rises up again. The low shutter speed I’ve used gives some motion blur, which creates a sense of speed in the picture.
This was the nal run of the day and the sun is already sinking down over the grandstands. As a result the RB13 is backlit, and the Tarmac takes on a golden effect.
You can also see the dazzle of the last rays of light reflected in Max’s visor and across the top of the Red Bull’s monocoque.
