Nice shots and pretty much the effects of the fence isn't showing on these at this size. Is is more noticeable on the full size ones? Are you there again tomorrow or is that you done for the weekend?

It's nice to see Lotus back in Formula 1. Good action shots.

Fence does not show up in these pictures at full size except for Lewis's McLaren (#7) (lines on the gravel trap & grass).
Shots taken where there was a shadow being cast on the fence by a tree, overcast sky and using long focal lengths 400mm+ (all these things help minimize mesh.
Anything less than 400mm I find the fence shows up to much even shooting wide-open.

Here is a sample of shot taken in different spot with no shadow on fence but still overcast. If it had of been sunny, fence would have showed up even more, would not of even of bothered taking pics from this spot.



Going on race day only taking 24-105 & 70-200mm lenses, not taking any F1 car pics just shots around the track and at the concert after the race.

Thank for the scuey shot. I did not follow the off season, did not realize Michael was on another benz team, not the mclearn team. This should be an interesting season.
