The Sakhir circuit is one of the best presented that we visit. The organisers have gone to great lengths to make a welcoming paddock environment, and here I have used the small fairly lights wrapped around the paddock palm trees to my advantage. Using a shallow depth of field and positioning these lights in the background whilst Lewis is interviewed, I have created a magical backdrop that is so unique to this circuit.
