Trip­ping the light fantastic

F1 Racing - - PARADE -

This photo was taken around 500 me­tres from the start­line in Bahrain. I knew it would be a great van­tage point be­cause the cars, full of fuel, strike the as­phalt and cre­ate sparks as they hit the bumps on the run down to Turn 1.

The com­bi­na­tion of the sparks on the track work well with the coloured lights on top of the grand­stand. And be­cause the race starts at twi­light, there’s a deep-blue back­drop.

Al­to­gether, the mix of four dif­fer­ent teams – Fer­rari, Red Bull, Wil­liams and Re­nault – pro­duces this in­cred­i­bly rich pal­ette of colours. It’s shot on a slow shut­ter speed, so you re­ally get a feel for the ex­cite­ment of the race start. Pho­tog­ra­pher L:orenzo Bel­lanca Where Sakhir, Bahrain When 6.02pm, Sun­day 16 April 2017
