Picture Perfect : Monaco Grand Prix

Monaco is a photographers dream. Glitz, glamour, a tight and twisty circuit and some lovely Mediterranean light make it a joy to work around the Principality’s streets. Nico is frozen in time as he attacks the Mirabeau corner. By pre-focusing on the track at the exact point where he is lifting the inside wheel and exposing for the highlights, this frame-filling shot captures Nico in his element.
