An­other sparkling per­for­mance

F1 Racing (UK) - - PARADE - Pho­tog­ra­pher Zak Mauger/lat

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.
