Pit stops, in the past they seemed to take an age. From stop to go we would have around 8 seconds to take images. We had enough time to shoot with one lens, then put that camera down and pick up another and get a different shot. As pit stops happen in around 3 seconds we now really have to commit to the 1 shot we are looking for. This week I have tried to capture the speed of the pit stop with Daniel Kvyat as he speeds into his pit box.
