Formula 1 in the rain is quite spectacular for photographers. That spray is incredible, visually.

This type of shot in NASCAR is only possible at Dover, where a small section of the pit wall has a gap at the bottom where a photographer can just barely point the camera to get a shot. It's still a very cool angle.

The dicing and darting on the run down to the first corner at a Grand Prix is always impressive. Will they or will they not touch?

Thankfully, F1 cars are still machines of beauty, especially from above.

Team atmosphere. You'd be hard pressed to get any closer to the action here.

The young gun had a great race at Malaysia. Locked up brakes and a little motion blur give off a sense of speed.

A frightful moment for Savadori, but a leg up and a bike at a precarious angle make for a visually impactful image.

A nice, clean graphic image. Simple in execution but very effective.

Sure, keep pushing Andreas. No front left tire and no bumper = no problem.

This impressive capture of a flying Ferrari was the obvious #1 this week. In fact, the entire sequence is pretty mega.
