Pics from the Canadian GP

Just thought I'd post some pics that we track rats would like.

Great photos. Unless that was a super telephoto, you were able to get close to the cars at that corner. Nice front brake lockup shot.

The F1 tires look so funny, especially the rains. Those are 13" wheels? Such a different look compared to sportscar racing wheel/tire combos. The F1 tires almost make the car look like a child's toy. I guess with that much sidewall, they become part of the suspension.

Thanks. My seat was pretty good for shooting at that corner. Luckily, I had the aisle seat, so there was nobody to my left. Actually there weren't any really bad seats in that grandstand. I used a Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L lens.

I agree with the 13" wheels looking funny by today's standards. I think there is a regulation going into effect in a couple of years where they will start using 18" wheels. They should be able to use much bigger brakes in that case, so brake cooling should be much less of an issue.
