Default Silverstone F1 GP Friday Practice 2011

Hello to all my friends here at OPF.
I am sorry I have not been able to contribute to the forum all of that often. Busy schedules and demanding family life consumes my life these day. None the less, I managed to free up some time and promptly purchased a ticket to indulge in my other passion... F1 racing. Here for your perusal, I present you with some of the shots I took during the Friday Silverstone British F1 GP practice. I hope you like them.

These are all great, but 'Jaime Alguersuari with his Toro Rosso' is my clear favorite shot of the series.
There is a lot of dynamics packed in this shot.

Best regards,
Michael

Hi Ivan,

Nice to see you post again. Thanks for sharing these, I have really enjoyed them. You've got something real good to show for a "small" entrance fee :)

Thank you Cem and Michael for the kind comments. Yes it is good finally having a bit of free time to post and entertain my hobbies / passions. Posting here at OPF is like returning home after a long journey it allays feels warm and welcoming.

I was a bit gutted, for I only managed to get tickets for the Friday practice, the rest were sold out. Still, even though it rained hard at times, it was a truly enjoyable day out doing what I like best.. . Photographing F1 cars.

Bellow, 3 more from the day concentrating on Driver Close-up

Canon EOS 1D MKIV+ EF 500mm f/4 L IS Manual exposure f/5.6 - 1/500th sec - ISO 100. Hand held.
