Quattro Ferrari

By blackett  
Four 2006 Ferrari F1 cars on track at Monza during the Ferrari Finali Mondiali last weekend at Monza. Front to back: Michael Schumacher, Felipe Massa, Luca Badoer and Marc Gene. This is a sight you only see at the World Finals, an awesome event well worth catching next year. Shot through the fence on the pit straight using a slow shutter speed to blur the fence wire. The sun was going down so the track was in shadow to add to my difficulties. Michael's last Ferrari event as a current driver, his car had been wrapped in a large red, white and green bow and presented to him as a leaving present!

I hope you like it, IanSmile

shame about the post and the sharpness, but likely something most will never see.

Cheers guys, the fencing serves a purpose I suppose. I am really chuffed with the shot anyway, bearing in mind the position I was in. I heard them coming down the straight but didn't expect them in a line, this is the most unusual shot from the whole weekend. Looking forward to the Rally Show in 2 weeks. IanSmile

Cracking photo Ian, fence doesn't bother me, but I'd be inclined to crop out the bright area at the top.

Love this photo. Very good idea of Ferrari to say bye to Mr Schumacher. I like the way Michael is just edged into the front of the 4 cars. Well done
