  1. Hey Keith,

    You forgot the best picture of the season. I forgot where exactly it is but it is of Nico Rosberg’s car exiting a corner with one tyre looking lower than the other

    1. It is from Japanese GP. Degner 1 I believe.

    2. Was going to mention this, but you beat me to it. It’s shot of the year–not sure whether it was a reproduction/copyright issue, as I doubt Keith would’ve forgotten about it?

  2. A great choice of shots. Boy do those tires look small in that shot of Max’s car hoisted up overhead.

    1. Ditto, great shots. The pic also accentuates how narrow, long and skateboardy the cars have become. Compare wheelbase to Senna’s FW-16:

  3. That first picture reminded me of this one haha: (nsfw)
    http://i.imgur.com/bLNizUA.jpg

    1. Yeah that’s more like it.

    2. That must be loud for a place to relax like that :)

  4. I didn’t Bottas was so overweight!!!!

  5. I almost saved that photo of Hulk in Singapore… to realize his car has the Halo :(

  6. These certainly are impressive. Cannot wait to see what the best shots will be like next year with the new regulations!

  7. Where’s Vettle in Canada with the seagulls??? That still gives me a good laugh

  8. Love KMag’s face in the Spanish press conference! Awkward!

  9. Fan, Shanghai International Circuit, 2016
    Ummm, that “fan” is a soldier and is standing his post. And should he decide to leave his post, he won’t have to bother himself with who won which race.
