Well, I think you saved the best 'til last then.

Can't pick a favourite, they're all brilliant.

I'll miss seeing F1 photos from you.

Thanks for the kind words. I still intend to cover a few grands prix, but will no longer attend all...

All top photos but for me, as examples of the art of the race photog, #1 & #6 are special, expertly portraying the thrill & drama, with well judged use of angle/viewpoint

Thanks for taking the time to post all the photos that you have, enjoyed them all.

Can I add my thanks to you for sharing all your wonderful GP photos with us.
Number 7 is brilliant. And I have to say your portrait of Bernie Ecclestone is pretty good too! I think he'd be happy with it.

It was a great race - I loved watching it on TV and would have loved to have been there!

2 and 7 are top class.

1 and 7 for me. Not as keen on 2.

That was some race!!!!

Another terrific set Simon. We've been luck that you've shared your work this season.

Thanks for posting these throughout the GP season. I have loved seeing them. As usual I think Im different to everyone else. As in this set I prefer the portrait. Great shot of an instantly recognisable sporting icon.

Number 7 is my favourite but all are impressive

At least we can look forward to some more of your shots on a part time basis
K10D, K5 plus plenty of clueless enthusiasm.
