To be honest, the subject matter gets my vote every day, the fact that this is such a good shot make me more jealous!
Crisp, well focused and just the right amount of motion in the wheels to give it action!
Getting there! Thanks to you guys

The shot is excellent. I met him once in his first year actually in the Benatton factory. I didn't like him then and I don't like him now. In my opinion he's dangerous and he cheats. New rules this year in F1 because of him in 2011.
Born again biker with lots of Pentax bits. Every day I wake up is a good day. I'm so old I don't even buy green bananas.
