Formula 1 Test Days 2019
Posted By: red5isalive, 02-23-2019, 01:16 PM

Dear members,

This year I have been able (finally!) to get a photographer media tabbard for the Formula 1 2019 Winter Tests this past week and so would love to share some of my images with all you,

The light was so nice

Again, that light....


Staring at you!

Exiting the pits

I hope you like them

It is been lots of fun !!!! Yet 4 days working very hard and only being able to get to the pitlane for 1 hour a day unfortunatelly due to our type of photo-pass.
Yet also I have found very dissapointing is that Canon and Nikon bring lenses and a sensor cleaning service, but Pentax does not bring anything so you can't borrow any lenses and you have to use your own private gear.

The gear I have used here has been the following one:

Pentax K3 Silver
Pentax K5

Sigma 17-50mm f2.8
Pentax DA 50-135mm f2.8
Sigma 100-300mm F4

Pentax F 1.7x

Unfortunatelly i forgot my Pentax F* 200mm f2.8 at home every day.

I have found a big shame not being able to try and work with bigger lenses borrowed from the brand itself, but things go as they go I guess.

Hope you like them!

These are all great, I would be in heaven if I had the opportunity to shoot F1 or WEC. But I do miss the sounds of the V-10

Thank you!

Yes is a great experience but as you say I also miss the glorious sound of the V12,V10 and V8 engines.

I'd love to do WEC as I believe is a better competition to take images at as you have different conditions of light.
