Silverstone 2009

Posted in Family Outings, motorsport, Sport by Dennis Wright on June 23, 2009

Some pictures I took over the British Grand Prix weekend at Silverstone.

Jenson Button coming into Luffield. He struggled with grip in the complex and you could see him skeetering round Luffield bend. He could only manage 6th in qualifying and also finished the race in 6th.

Lewis Hamilton took a journalist from Silverstone TV for a ride around the circuit in the Safety Car. It is a left hand drive vehicle so Lewis is in the far seat in this picture.

The Race Marshals at Luffield B.

Nelson Piquet Jr. in the hideous Renault.

Aaron Scott in the Porsche Supercup. I was quite pleased with the panning technique on this one, where the camera follows the movement of the car while the picture is being taken. As a result the car is almost sharp but the background is nicely blurred, emphasising the impression of speed.
