10. Macau is a unique street circuit that is rivaled only by Monaco for how difficult of a place it is to race. Like Monte Carlo, it has elevation changes, a ridiculously tight hairpin, and frighteningly tight stretches where barely one car can fit. And like the the principality on the Mediterranean, it's scenic and very photogenic.

9. The rule of thumb when making this kind of "art" is to make sure the number on the car is in focus. Easier said than done.

5. A good idea of the mayhem that goes on for any NASCAR Victory Lane, especially the championship stage at season's end.

4. Looks like Latvala's Volkswagen is exploding out of the mud. This is the Wales Rally GB, after all. And it's always wet, miserable and cold.

3. NASCAR celebration 101: do a burnout (or three), get out of your vehicle and stand on it, wave a flag.

2. We featured Kimi Raikkonen in F1 pre-season testing at Bahrain in this exact light in February. It's a favorite of ours.
