I was lucky enough to be at the Japanese Grand Prix in Suzuka in 2012 and took this shot of Lewis Hamilton driving his McLaren to the grid prior to the start of the race. I’ve been a McLaren fan ever since my uncle started working for the Woking-based team when I was a kid.

Thanks to Andy Coates who helped me set the camera up to get these shots where the car is in focus and the background is blurred (it took a few attempts!). A shutter speed of 1/200th was the key. The pic is best viewed at full size 🙂

I'd love to hear from you! Please share your thoughts below...
