  1. These are all good, but none of them really wow me.

      1. Im wow’d. As i said the other day this is the only f1 site i know of that offers brilliant HD photos straight after sessions. 10/10.

  2. Still no 1080p :(

    1. Perhaps you want them in 3D too? :)

    2. I could potentially offer higher resolution images – but not for free. What would you be willing to pay for access to a higher resolution gallery?

      1. I say keep it as it is. They’re fine.

          +1. They are super. The Hamilton and Rosberg ones at the same corner almost do look 3D :)

      2. You could set up a per picture download fee?

        say (For example) 20P per Hi-res picture.
        or a fee to access the whole gallery in hi res.. for example.

        £10 for a years worth of HD goodness
        £7 for 6 months
        £4for 3

        That way I don’t see how it could be overcharging, but I don’t know how much server hosting / getting pictures actually cost. I could be very wrong with the numbers but its only guesswork and ideas. Cheers :)

      3. No complaints here Keith. I love seeing these pics, especially right after the sessions. Thank you!

        1. They look pretty hi res to me!! The quality of them are great.

          I personally think the photgraper/s should be given a high five.

    1. I thought the same ;)

  4. I really do like the yellow and orange around here.

      It reminds me of the ING Renault F1 Livery lol

    2. if pirelli had the super-softs and softs it’d be perfect!

    3. I think this track is more colourful than others. Of course, it lacks of gravel and grass and it’s mainly grey, but on close-up shots it’s not bad!
