Lewis in low light near ‘Spider Al­ley’

F1 Racing (UK) - - PARADE -

This shot of Lewis Hamil­ton was taken in the clos­ing stages of this year’s Ja­panese Grand Prix. From ex­pe­ri­ence I know that if it’s a sunny day, the low light can cre­ate a great ef­fect and did so on the re­flec­tive sil­ver paint of the Mercedes.

I’m ac­tu­ally stand­ing on the out­side of 130R shoot­ing in the other di­rec­tion at the exit of the sec­ond Deg­ner curve. Hamil­ton is ac­cel­er­at­ing out of the cor­ner and he’s just about to dis­ap­pear un­der the bridge where the track crosses over it­self.

The route back to the pits takes you through a very nar­row path­way known col­lo­qui­ally by the For­mula 1 pho­tog­ra­phers as ‘Spider Al­ley’ thanks to the num­ber of large spi­ders that line the route.
