A bad day for Bulega. Bonus points to the photographer for getting a nice sunburst on his helmet.

There's something about a race start that really gets the blood pumping, particularly really loud V8 engines. It's something the behold at least once.

This is a very nice, moody shot of Hamilton coming out of the garage. The mirror is in the way of the helmet, unfortunately, and is the reason this image is not featured higher on our list.

Just look at the right rear tire strain under those huge loads. This is such a cool shot that really shows off the physics of F1.

A really nice celebration photo, shot from above and nicely framed with the people around parc fermé. Just a shame about that camera man just behind HAM. Had he not been there, the driver's white overalls would contrast against the darker background and really make the subject pop more. But we'll take it either way. Very nice.

2. Scott McLaughlin, Team Penske Ford

Holy sunset, Batman! This looks like an LMP2 racing through the desert or something. You're more likely to see this type of shot from the Dakar than the Portimao ELMS round. So striking, we couldn't help put make this #1.
