We are all used to see car races from the trackside, an we see the fast cars, the drivers, the end result. Which is great - it's what the team has been working for. And as photographers, we like to let our images speak for us, and show these amazing cars.
But then, when we sit out there at track side, we can't see the behind-the-scenes, the team effort, and all the work being done during the race.
Everyone sees the podium, but the real celebration is the moment just before that checkered flag is waved, when the whole team gets to see that happen.
And so when someone asks me why in the world I am here sweating off a few pounds in fireproofs working pit lane, instead of quietly sitting trackside all the time... well, here's why. Because from the trackside you don't see this.
Thank you Aston Martin Racing.
