I actually felt like I left out a lot in the previous post so I'm excited to share a few more photos from the big race weekend!
practice pits stops!
Here is the Ferrari team going to work! If you have never seen a live race pit stop, let me tell you, this is actually very slow! During the race, pit stops are usually around 3 seconds!
Although I didn’t have a chance to get my camera out fast enough, I must mention the Sauber team. These guys were not messing around. They were in full gear, performing real time stops. They were even drilled and had to make split second decisions as to which tires to put on the car.
The pit walk is also your chance to see the cars up close. It’s pretty amazing to see the technology, every millimeter is strategically designed. It’s even more impressive to hear them up close! Do not attempt without earplugs, trust me!
Occasionally you will even catch a glimpse of one of the drivers, here is Nico Rosberg.
And here we have a photo op with “Jenson Button” and “Sergio Perez” from the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes team.
