Chas­ing shad­ows in the Red Bull

F1 Racing - - PARADE -

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.
