The finger returns

This is a nice shot of Sebastian Vettel’s iconic celebration. It was a strange weekend with Mercedes dropping off the pace but we saw the old Vettel well and truly back on form. i like this picture because you can see the camera and the camerman, when most people who watch F1 will be familiar with the view from the camera itself. This was a delayed celebration as Ferrari wasn’t able to get to parc ferme and that was good from my position because it meant he just kept celebrating. I was able to shoot away; the light in parc ferme is pretty good so you can shoot with those pretty well. I could have cropped the cameraman out but you can see he’s smiling it and enjoying it as much as Vettel! One interesting point that confused me is that Vettel has made some tweaks to his helmet, which I didn’t think they could do under the regulations, but it’s quite clear on the side of his helmet there are some new swirls that weren’t there at the start of the year.

Follow the leader

This was during FP2. The Merc boys kept coming round lap after lap through the pit lane to do practice starts. You would normally expect them to do this on Saturday morning, in FP3, but this is the most representative session to qualifying due to the time it is run. From the angle I’m standing at I’ve managed to get the “Your Singapore” branding on the bridge on it, the long run down to Turn 1, and Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg are also quite close together as well.

Sparkling Lotus

The night races this year have been really great for sparks. You see them in the daylight but they get enhanced a great deal under the lights. This is on a longer lens, a 500, panning into the first corner from the same position I took the Hamilton and Rosberg photograph (above), I’m sat there hoping the cars will spark because they were bottoming out over a bump or two there, and this one is a great shot of Pastor Maldonado’s Lotus doing just that. We’ve had Bahrain and now Singapore where there’s been some great spark shots and I imagine it will be similar at Abu Dhabi in November.
