It’s not often we get a full wet session in Formula 1. The drivers have to contend with less visibility, setting the car up and keeping it on the track. For us photographers it gives us the opportunity to take different images, trying to create an image from the 1000’s of litres or water pouring off the back of the car as well as trying to keep our kit dry! Here is Vettel creating a wall of water behind him as he tries to get the power down exiting the final chicane.
