    Well, better late than ever! The race edit of last year’s 60th Macau GP:

    Thanks for sharing Keith! This year we have one hell of a race on our hands. Probably the most talented field of the last 5 to 7 years.The last time I saw a field like this was in the Rosberg, Hamilton, Vettel generation. Lets just hope the weather picks up. Not looking too good today, but weather reports are optimistic for both weekends.

    Yes, not the Formula 1 driver though. Sergio Basto Perez here. :)

    Yep, that happened. It was an unfortunate moment for the organisation. I don’t know what happened, but certainly its been going through an internal investigation. However, it worked as an incentive for the fans to sing the portuguese national anthem out loud, and it was an emotional moment, for sure!

    Thanks Keith for sharing :) Thank you all for the nice comments! It was an eventful race weekend, with 2 tragic losses. This is a circuit like no other. It complies with all FIA safety regulations, but its an old, “organic” circuit, not “cirurgical” like most of the current ones. Even those take lives. This is motorsport, and concerning this circuit, it is the most challenging in the world for a reason, and that’s why who wins here gets noticed. A big, big respect and applause to the ones that lost their lives here- they are definitely “Heroes” and are part of the History of this race. And so are Da Costa, Senna, Schumacher and others!

    Thank you all! Completely missed your compliment at the beginning, Mike, thank you!

    This was a hell of a hard work. If you like this video, please do share it with fellow fanatics and friends. The more this is viewed the chances are I can do more and better next year. This was shot basically by a 2 man team, me and Aries, with a College student helping out on the file management and an audio recording friend that went from pit to pit interviewing the drivers. I wanted to do more, like to get my Go pro in one of the cars but couldn’t. I will definitely push for it next year. Also I’m personally investing in a High speed camera (that is low profile-looks like a still camera) so that I can provide even more spectacular shots for next year.

    The broadcast footage looks better here because we get the digital broadcast in Macau. I think your satellite feed footage looks worse for whatever reason. Also I did some color correction and some “diffusion” to those shots to smooth out everything so that it looks more acceptable.

    Once again, thanks all, glad you all liked it!

    Thank you for sharing Keith! Thanks for the compliments damonsmedley!

    Well, yes, that’s actually my name. Am not Mexican and certainly not an F1 driver, though! :)

    Well, I get to get so close because I’ve been covering the GP for many years now. They allow me to get that close. Since my “low end equipment” doesn’t seem very intrusive they allow me to get the shots you see in the video. I’m really happy that you enjoyed it. It means all the hard work wasn’t for nothing :)
