The very best F1 photography
The inside of La Source, Turn 1 at Spa, is probably the closest any photographer can get to the cars at any circuit we visit. This perspective is enhanced by the fisheye lens I’ve used here, giving a wide-angle view of the Renault of Nico Hülkenberg, which is less than a metre from where I’m standing.
To take this shot, I first panned with the leaders, Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel, and then tried to capture as much as possible after that.
It’s only after the entire field had rounded the first corner that I got the chance to look at the back of my camera to see what I’d actually taken; when it’s happening there is just a blur of cars rushing past.
