F1 Historic - Friday Practice Session

A favorite for us, canadians (^_^). The 1979 Ferrari 312T-4 of late Gilles Villeneuve. Here driven by Danny Baker.

Image cropped and composed to demonstrate the design of the car. Note the vulnerability of the legs of the driver. Feet being next to the suspension and wheel axle. Fortunately cars were modified. It took a few years and the death of a few drivers before they moved the driver position further back. see the workshop for the uncropped shot.

F1 Cars are in constant evolution. This Ferrari was fast. Dangerously fast. They could drive it at full speed even in corners with the ground effect. Jody Schekter eventually won the Title in 1979 with this car.

Slow shutter speed used to increase the speed effect.

Back soon with comments and critiques ( on weeke-end ). Thanks in the meantime for your input.

Hello Robert,

Really good composition and good panning. The sense of speed is really ...really good.

Hi robert,

Great shot- really shows us how crazy these drivers were. (Still are? Well, at least now you can flip a car, remove the front end and then walk away.)

Great exposure and sharpness and movement. It shows everything.


Hi Robert,
What an amazing shot of this beautiful Ferrari car which is captured beautiful motion blur effect archived with shutter 100 which is relatively slow for the speed but with this shutter it creates beautiful blur in FG and indeed BG,well done!!

Best Regards
