Out of dark­ness comes light

F1 Racing (UK) - - PARADE -

Dur­ing the sec­ond prac­tice ses­sion on the Fri­day of the Bel­gian GP, I was shoot­ing in­side the Mclaren garage. It looked as if it was about to rain, so most cars were stay­ing in the pits. I asked Fer­nando Alonso’s num­ber-one me­chanic, Lee Hart, whether Fer­nando was plan­ning to go out again and dis­cov­ered that he was.

I took my long lens and wet-weather gear and went to the top of the pit­lane. As the cars en­ter the pits they head over a crest, so I stood there to wait for the Mclaren to come into view.

There was so much rain com­ing down that you can see it bounc­ing off the track in front of the car, and be­ing lifted back up into the air as spray.
