Picture Perfect : Hungarian Grand Prix

The Hungaroring on race day saw temperatures rise to over 30 degrees and the bright and sunny weather mixed with a large colourful crowd makes for great photos. This shot is taken just after the turn 7 chicane. By pre-focusing on the track and slowing the shutter speed right down to a 1/40th of a second, a slow panning movement as the car blasts past creates this dramatic image with a real sense of speed.
