Another sparkling performance
Renault’s new ‘C-spec’ power unit had given Red Bull the performance uplift they wanted at Monza, but Singapore’s humidity exposed unforseen problems with the engine mapping, and Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo were plagued by false neutrals throughout.
Both cars were running aggressive setups and threw up plenty of sparks, particularly here at Turn 15 in qualifying. Rather than go for ‘speed blur’ I chose a fast shutter speed to freeze the sparks and capture the edginess of the car. This is a fiercely competitive team that expects to win; both Verstappen and Ricciardo (pictured) were right on the limit all weekend.
