10. Details in photography are important. Force India's new nose treatment is a detail worth noticing.

9. Parc fermé in F1 is hit or miss. It depends on so many factors: the driver's reactions, television crew guy getting in the way, fans celebrating around you, team members hugging their hero. In this case, although the TV guy is very much in the way, he's not distracting - in fact he helps make the picture. If you can't beat them (by going tight on the photo), make it work for you (by going wide and giving more context).

1. A 3,500 lbs car crashing at nearly 200mph will mangle a catchfence. Still incredible that the barrier kept the Chevrolet from flying into the stands. Bonus points for flying engine (foreground).
