The view from F1’s favourite cor­ner

F1 Racing (UK) - - PARADE -

Be­fore the start of the Bel­gian Grand Prix, I po­si­tioned my­self at the bot­tom of the hill at Eau Rouge, with my lens fac­ing away from the field. I wasn’t even look­ing back up the hill to La Source to watch the pack de­scend­ing to­wards me, I was just lis­ten­ing out for their ap­proach as I re­mained in this po­si­tion with my cam­era ready.

In­stead of pan­ning along with the pack, I pho­tographed them us­ing a high shut­ter speed as they swarmed past – so this shot is just one of a whole se­quence of images.

Stand­ing at one of the world’s most fa­mous cor­ners at one of the most iconic F1 tracks with this gen­er­a­tion of car rac­ing past gives you a real buzz.
