All drivers want to beat their team mate, and you don’t get much closer than during the opening laps of the Brazilian GP between Nico and Carlos. Corner after corner they battled for track position, fairly, closely, but at times a little too close for comfort. Here Carlos dives down the inside under braking at turn 8 on lap 3 of the race. By using a long telephoto lens and following the cars with a fast shutter speed you achieve this frame-filling action shot of the two guys battling it out.
