  1. Vettel’s helmet is awesome. His best helmet in a long time.

  2. Yeah the red and blue here looks really cool. Can’t wait to see this circuit in action tomorrow :D

  3. Does McLaren has a new sponsor (verizon) in place of vodafone for the rest of the season?????????

    1. Vodafone owns 45% of Verizon. Since Vodafone doesn’t have a presence here in the States it made sense for them to promote the Verizon brand to the American market.

      1. Vodafone owns 45% of Verizon Verizon Wireless.

  4. Who says modern Formula 1 circuits lack character?

    I’ve been looking forward to these pictures all year, and they haven’t disappointed.

  5. Does anyone know when/why they covered up all the painted stars on the runoff?

  6. The helicopter pilot (in the Grosjean shot) gets my vote for Driver of the Weekend so far.
    Loving the aerial shots during practice. There must be a few scary moments up that tower, watching him swooping around below you!
