The view from F1’s favourite corner
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.
