    Flying Nico!!!

  2. I love this! Excellent compilation.

  3. There’s something about the lighting at Bahrain that makes the photographs look a lot more amaizing than the other night races. Assuming they use the same lighting systems, maybe the difference resides in the enviroment around the track. There’s nothing else but the darkness of the dessert alongside the track, whereas at Singapore and Abu Dhabi the buildings are fully lit, with different colours and all, and the walls are much closer reflecting more light on the track and cars.

  4. is the very last picture photoshopped? (the one with rosberg flying out of the car)

    1. I don’t think so.

      I have seen multiple shots of that moment in multiple angles too in several different websites !

    2. @alfa145 No, these are all original photographs.

  5. You missed the picture of Rosberg’s car deformed under load at Suzuka – see picture 1:

  6. The photo of Raikonnen and Bottas in Sochi taken from the upper right is going to be my wallpaper from the foreseeable future. Great stuff, thanks for posting.
