10. This week is less about racing and more about the beauty of the machines, it seems. You'll note the automotive apprecation theme in this top 10. Let's start with arguably the most beautiful Ferrari ever built, the 330 P4. In Beverly Hills, in front of the Gucci store no less...

6. These Blancpain starts are great. Lots of lovely GT3 cars, nice repetitive lines from the pit wall, and good racing action as the Lambo and Audi squeeze into the first corner at Zolder.

5. The beast that is the McLaren P1 GTR, successor to the famous F1 GTR from the 90s. Another pick that makes this list solely because of the car. All black, with black wheels, and tinted windows. This is a very good looking machine.

4. Continuing our static theme, the special livery on this Audi from the Blancpain Sprint Series is perfectly displayed in this Stanley Kubrick-esque single perspective.

2. A nice scene-setter from the DTM finale at Hockenheim. Lovely blue sky, some panning action and a beautiful Mercedes all make for a good ensemble.

1. Another great character when he wins, Mattias Ekström knows how to give it up on the podium. It all works: from his facial expression, to the fingers pointing to the event. It's a story-telling image.
