Rainer Schlegelmilch is a pioneer among F1 photographers, creating portrait and action work that broke new ground during a career that spanned from 1962 to 2017, when he retired.

A new film, which I have produced through my new vehicle Allen Content, tells the story of Schlegelmilch's work, with contributions from two men inextricably linked with him; Sir Jackie Stewart and Bernie Ecclestone. It will premiere this weekend.

"We were all blessed by his lenses," said Stewart. "He just was always in the right place at the right time."

Ecclestone, who at one point signed Schlegelmilch as F1's official photographer, said: "He’s a nice guy. His work is super and one photograph is better than a thousand words.

"You look at it and everyone sees something different in a photograph. I see these photographs and, having been there, it brings back good memories. He’s done a fantastic job as long as he’s been in Formula 1."

Rainer Schlegelmilch: Freezing Speed: Motorsport TV, Saturday 16th December, 8pm. UK time (see local listings for details in other countries) and available on MotorsportTV OTT platform
