Picture Perfect : Belgian Grand Prix

This shot of Nico was taken at turn 9 which is called Speakers Corner so named because the only place this curve can be seen from is the former speakers’ booth. It is a seemingly simple left hander but it very often catches the drivers out, they can run wide using all the kerbing but making sure not to get on the ultra slippy astro turf. A slow panning technique was used for this image as you are crouched in front of the thousands of spectators on the hill above the corner.
