Found another shot from Brands Hatch last month. Will be there tomorrow and shooting some night racing, will really test the ISO capabilities of a 7D. Will be trying hard to capture flaming exhausts and glowing brake discs.

Cool shot, Matt.  I really like this one.

Well that's the F1 season over with for another year, and what an ending!  A new world champion, a retirement, rumours, doughnuts, aerobatics, 2 legends leaving us; and of course the tyre testing in the days that followed.
It was a great Grand Prix this year and I for one was totally in favour of the tactics that have been damned by some, it made for a tense race!!
I'll add a few images over the next few threads, I hope you enjoy them :D

And the last few.

First is the Etihad A380 and the Al Fursan Aerobatics team doing the fly-by, second is my old recovery chief and his second in command, third up needs no introduction!

Excellent stuff Stewart!!  A lot of great images.

Part of me doesn't agree with Hamilton's tactics but I understand why he did it - he's a competitor that wants to win it all and it did add tension to the end of the race.  It's a bit of a different take on Sir Jack Brabham's motto of "win at the slowest possible speed" though. ;D

Good stuff Stewart,

I was just saying the other day to my partner about when you would be posting some images.

Anymore?  ;D

Thanks guys, I'll see if there are anymore worthy of airing  :)

I really enjoyed the race, and the tactics really were the only "play" that Hamilton had in his arsenal at the time, so well played to him I say.  It excites me to know that there are still drivers with that eye of the tiger
I think Brabham would have approved  ;D

I think Brabham would have approved  ;D

The man who kept his pursuers at bay by driving at the edge of the track to flick up pebbles would certainly have approved :D
