For years I have followed Formula One racing. F1, it goes without saying, is the most advanced engineering exercise in all of motor sports. Engineers like myself can find plenty to like. Even if it means getting up at 4:30 in the morning (pre-Tivo era) to follow the action and the drama, it has always been worth it.
Lately, I have also taken an interest in photography thanks to a client and a vacation to Costa Rica. Of the 600 plus photos I took on that trip, one picture on the very last day stood head and shoulders above the rest. This and the opportunity to buy a new camera have lead to much research. During that research I came across the Big Picture from the Boston Globe.
Well, lo and behold. Today the Big Picture features Formula One.
Formula One is undergoing a rather tumultous season as the status quo has been upended due to rule changes. Some teams (actually, a few of the smaller ones) have taken advantage of the rules to dominate the start of the season. As they say, go big or go home (whether it's racing or photos).
