The ori­gin of sym­me­try

F1 Racing (UK) - - PARADE -

Since this year’s Span­ish GP, race or­gan­is­ers have di­rected the top three qual­i­fiers to stop on the main straight, rather than in parc fermé, so the TV in­ter­views are broad­cast si­mul­ta­ne­ously to fans in the grand­stands as well as those at home. This has cre­ated an op­por­tu­nity for much more vis­ually en­gag­ing im­agery; pre­vi­ously, driv­ers would just wave from the garage.

I spent the ses­sion in the pit­lane and came onto the track with the TV crew. This pic­ture works be­cause there’s the sym­me­try of Se­bas­tian framed be­tween the lights and the cir­cuit fenc­ing, with the two Red Bulls on ei­ther side; Seb stand­ing on his car is a bonus.
