Sidepodcast // All for F1 and F1 for all

The first day of testing in pictures // A snapshot of the initial running in Valencia

Published by Mr. C

F1 photographer Alex Comerford has been busying himself at today's opening test in Valencia, Spain. Along with three teams launching new cars and a forth debuting a testing livery, the man has been snapping pictures of all 11 teams on track during the first day.

Additionally Alex has been pushing the boundaries of F1 photography, by offering the world's first 3D photo of the Sauber C30 and more. Admittedly we don't own any equipment capable of displaying such an image in three dimensions, but we encourage such innovation regardless.

In the meantime, here are a number of Alex's more traditional 2D images, that you can enjoy using standard equipment.
