A kaleidoscope of motion
I shot the beginning of the Belgian Grand Prix from the outside of La Source, but then I had to make my way back to the pitlane to photograph TV’S Guy Martin, who was part of Williams’ pitstop crew, responsible for taking off the left rear during the pitstops.
On the way there, I noticed an area where Paddock Club guests stand and wondered if I could compose an image where the car is passing between them – similar to when you shoot a car on the track passing between the trees.
I’ve ended up with this great blur of different colours and a real feeling of speed as Nico Hülkenberg blasts down the hill out of the exit of La Source.
