Vandoorne might be having a disastrous year, but the photos are pretty nice.

We go on and on about how scenic the WRC. Add to that some of the best photographers in racing, and you get some stunners.

Some of the stages on Rally Argentina are covered with people. It's spectacular, provides a great backdrop, and reminds us of Gr. B.

The kind of photo that would have become iconic, 20 years ago. Now it's just another nice moment from 2017, where photos are everywhere. That doesn't mean we aren't trying to do our part in promoting nice moments, like this one. Team/driver ambiance.

We love the graphic nature of the donut tire marks left by (no doubt) the Brickyard 400 winner last year. Plus this historical moment, watched by basically everyone in the racing world, is worth a mention here.

Pure emotion in a very close WRC finish. Rallies don't finish with a difference of tenths between first and second place. But this one did.

2. Podium: race winner Valtteri Bottas, Mercedes AMG F1

The excitement of his first victory in F1 drove Bottas to shoot himself in the face with champagne. We'd do the same, probably.

This is an outstanding crash photo. And it's hard to explain just how difficult it is to get one so tack sharp while being so tight in on the action. Well done.
