Photos from behind the F1 scenes – Part 2

Ever wonder how they capture the sound of the cars on the circuit?  Ever wonder what the speed trap looks like?  Have you ever seen an F1 wheel with the tyre mounted?  Well here you go!

I apologize in advance for the poor quality of some of the photos.  One has to be quick and cannot always afford the time to sit and take a proper photo.  Most of these shots were captured on my mobile.

Ahhh... Grid girls.  Beautiful young ladies can brighten any event with their presence.

Here is a quick shot of the Media Centre.  Can you spot Adam Hay Nicholls?  This is where most of us watch the race.  Of course, some of us sneak out to catch some action live from track-side whenever possible.  Strategically, some journalists pop out and run to chat with key team people to get specific information during the race.

Amazing how close I was able to get to an F1 car doing over 300km/h.  The sensation is unlike any other.
