There’s always one thing you can guarantee at the Bahrain Grand Prix, that as the cars head towards Turn 1, their titanium skid blocks will strike the Tarmac and create huge streaks of sparks – which are accentuated in the darkness.
I shot the start of the race from the exit of Turn 2 and was able to head to the inside of Turn 1 when the Virtual Safety Car was deployed for Daniel Ricciardo’s stricken Red Bull.
Knowing that Lewis Hamilton was out of position, I was expecting him to perform some overtakes with DRS and he delivered, passing three cars in one move in this image.
