Turn right, look left

F1 Racing (UK) - - PARADE -

I al­ways try to find a cor­ner where you can see the driv­ers are re­ally on the limit, and where it’s pos­si­ble to cap­ture this in a sin­gle im­age. This is Turn 3 in Sin­ga­pore, shot from a pho­tog­ra­phers’ tower to give it an el­e­vated an­gle. There’s the bonus of some back­ground colour that blurs nicely, thanks to the slow shut­ter speed, which also em­pha­sises the flat-out na­ture of qual­i­fy­ing.

What makes this shot of Car­los Sainz more un­usual is that you can see his head – and, thanks to the clear vi­sor, his eyes – look­ing to­wards the big screen on his left. That’s real skill: go­ing flat-out, but with enough men­tal band­width to check what his ri­vals are do­ing.
