8. This never gets old. The circle of the steering wheel compliments the distortion created by the wide angle lens needed to get such a view in close quarters. Dramatic.

7. Carlos Sainz Jr. gets the nod for first sparks of 2015. Also note the amount of flex in the rear suspension. Major forces at work here, that you can't always see on television.

6. We are fond of scene setters, but sometimes certain images are mood setters. This Audi DTM testing photo is just that. It's like the opening scene of the new season.

1. Another low light F1 silhouette. We're sorry, we just can't help ourselves.  The warm colors, crisp details in the repeating kerbs and texture of the asphalt make this number one in our books.
