A bird’s-eye view of Yas Ma­rina Cir­cuit

F1 Racing (UK) - - PARADE - Pho­tog­ra­pher : Lorenzo Bel­lanca

Each year the or­gan­is­ers of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix are able to give pho­tog­ra­phers ac­cess to the Viceroy Ho­tel that over­looks the Yas Ma­rina track.

Be­fore Satur­day morn­ing’s prac­tice ses­sion, I went to re­cep­tion and was guided by a mem­ber of the ho­tel staff to a room above the walk­way that spans across the cir­cuit.

As you shoot into the light, you get a back-lit ef­fect on the cars and the shad­ows re­ally stand out. How­ever, it’s the in­tri­cate mesh of the ho­tel’s roof that is re­ally im­pres­sive.

It’s un­usual to have a ho­tel within an F1 cir­cuit, so it pro­vides a great op­por­tu­nity for guests - and pho­tog­ra­phers - to en­joy the views.
