Smash­ing punt­ings

F1 Racing (UK) - - PARADE -

You can usu­ally rely on there be­ing some drama at Turn 1 in Sin­ga­pore, so for the start I picked out a spot in the pho­tog­ra­phers’ tower that’s part of the main grand­stand. My plan was to shoot with a wider lens than nor­mal to cap­ture the il­lu­mi­nated Sin­ga­pore sig­nage in frame as well as the start, so I was on a 70-200mm zoom.

Then, as the chaos un­folded, I fol­lowed the Fer­raris and Red Bulls all the way through their shunt, so I also cap­tured Fer­nando Alonso’s exit af­ter they hit him – when he ap­peared in my viewfinder he was al­ready well off the ground.

It was a real shame be­cause he was up to third and po­ten­tially on for his best re­sult of the year. You can un­der­stand why he took out his frus­tra­tion on the wall in his pri­vate room back at the Mclaren hospi­tal­ity area!
