The sun sets on the final race of the 2017 F1 season. The twilight race around the Yas Marina Circuit always provides an amazing backdrop for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. This year however race day was a little cloudy and we worried that we may not get the trademark sunset. However around the 6th lap of the race the clouds broke and a wonderful golden sunset bathed the track in golden light. By exposing for the highlights and silhouetting the car I captured this dramatic shot of Nico heading to a fantastic 6th place finish.
