Ac­tion from the first test in Spain

The first test at Barcelona was be­set by bad weather, which punc­tu­ated run­ning for ev­ery team. But when I looked at the fore­cast, there was a chance the sun would ap­pear on the morn­ing of the sec­ond day.

In the last cou­ple of years it’s been im­pos­si­ble to stand in the spot where I took this shot, be­cause they had re­moved a lot of the Armco bar­ri­ers, but they were back in place this year.

I’m look­ing back to­wards Turn 10, the tight left-han­der at the end of the back straight, and just as Se­bas­tian Vet­tel came into view, the sun broke from be­hind the clouds and cross-lit the scarlet Fer­rari.

Af­ter that there was very lit­tle sun­shine for the rest of the test.
