Shots taken with K-5 and Sigma 100-300mm f4 (except the Mark Webber portrait, for which a Pentax 28-105 f3.2-4.5 was pressed into service). And for anybody wondering about the curious exposure in #3, that's Kimi Räikkönen heading towards the pit straight's atmospheric pollution. Finally, science is powerless to explain #7...

Lucky sod !

I was supposed to go there yesterday and today with a friend but work intervened and I had an unscheduled meeting with an important client that took me through 14.30 yesterday

Then I got up this morning with a pinched nerve in my back ... no lugging around 10kgs of cameras, lenses and monopods for me today. TV and a beer as the race starts in a few minutes !

#6 is a cracking shot - well done ! Hope you are back there for the race today.

The Chinese call anything that is mashed up (bun fillings, yam, potato etc.) ... mud !

So you have Tu Dou Ni = Mashed Potato.

Lucky you! a great set of photos.
The pollution was really clear to see during today's amazing race so well done for getting those shots despite it.

No race pics, I'm afraid (although I took a few on the grid and will try to add some in due course). The day job restricts me to practice shots.

The haze played havoc with the autofocus, although it might just have been me being rubbish...
