Hülk lights up the gloomiest day
One of the best places to shoot photos at Silverstone is backwards towards Becketts as the cars sweep into the righthander at around 180mph.
Normally it’s quite overcast at the British Grand Prix, so the light is poor, but here you get a great contrast with the very bright effect of the titanium skid-plates sending up sparks as they hit the kerb.
Pictured here is Nico Hülkenberg, who made it into Q3 in qualifying this year. The track was still a little damp, but you can see his commitment.
It’s a very short movement to pan with him because he’s travelling so fast, but the slow shutter speed enhances the shower of sparks.
