    It would be so awesome if the EXIF data was still in the pics so nerds like me could figure out how those talented guys take those photos!

    1. Trade secrets I guess!

    2. That is a dream job my friend!

    3. The circuit photographers always fascinate me. If I`m not careful I end up watching them more than the cars.
      The way they swing themselves (like teeing off in golf) each time a car passes & then take a quick look in their viewer to see what they got is like some strange dance particularly when there`s more than one of them close together.
      I`ve got some video of them at work beside the track in Casino Square & also on a crane at Ste Devoe.

  3. You reckon the red bull car was in the last picture by mistake?????? lol

  4. How come there is not a single picture of Red Bull’s new double decker diffuser…?

  5. Apologies if this is a stupid question, but are these your pictures, Keith? Absolutely brilliant!

  6. awesome pics! Really, wow great photography. The last one though, damn we dont need to see near-naked flabby middle-aged white women do we? Do we?

    Don’t think so, as can be seen from:

    Awesome collection again, Keith, thanks. SO MANY stunning wallpapers there.

  8. Great pics. I was really hoping to see a good close-up of Red Bulls new diffuser. Anybody else think the Red Bull nose is absolutely awesome O:) …

  9. Fantastic front shot of the Beemer, looks like the Walrus is back, lets hope it is as fast as it looks nex round!

  10. @ Ali – thats great, thanks for the picture post…

  11. Any word from RBR or the drivers on what they think of the new diffuser? Feel of the car or performance?

    1. not heard anything yet, but I’d be suprised if it has a significant effect at Monaco.

      It will do in Turkey however I’m sure… get your squids on Vettel for that one!

  12. truly a street circuit. the new street circuits lack character.

    I love it when F1 goes to Monaco, and by fluke I’m off work this week!!!!. Great pics Keith. Maybe you could introduce a pit babes section ala ITV.
    Did anybody have a good pic of the new RB diffuser?

    Fingers crossed FOTA, FOM and FIA sort things out today!!!

    1. Maybe you could introduce a pit babes section ala ITV.

      This discussion has come up before! I don’t care for the idea myself, I think it would cheapen the site. Always interested to hear people’s opinions though.

  14. many thanks for the fotos.
