Out of darkness comes light
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.
