The origin of symmetry
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.
