Picture Perfect : United States Grand Prix

The Circuit Of The Americas (COTA) saw the debut for young Spanish driver Carlos Sainz to Team Renault Sport F1.
For the photographers the ‘stars & stripes’ painted on the track provide a very American feel. This shot was taken from the top of the COTA Tower, over 250ft high! The image was captured whilst leaning over the edge and taken on a 70-200mm f2.8 panning at 500th of a second at f16 so as to make sure that the ‘stars & stripes’ are frozen as well as the car.
