"There was a chance of rain during the last few minutes of FP2, which brought some very interesting cloud formations. I've used a wide angle lens to highlight this as Lance navigates Turn Two.

"The atmosphere from the grandstands was great all weekend. There was an incredible amount of support for Lance for his home race."

"I’ve highlighted Sebastian in the mirror using a small aperture to create a shallow depth of field while he looks focused in the garage.

"I particularly like this version with the red light from the rear wing of the AMR22."

"With the sunny weather on Sunday, it was a great chance to capture Lance's one-off helmet on the grid before the race.

"I used a 50mm lens and shallow aperture to highlight the maple leaf, which really stood out on this design."

"This is one of the closest places you can get to the cars on track in Montreal, coming out of the Turn 3/4 chicane.

"To get the quickest lap time, the cars almost brush the wall. After 10 minutes, you're normally covered in dust and dirt thrown up by the cars."

"The Pirelli Wet tyres throw up lots of spray, and this can be shown by using a fast shutter speed.

"This creates quite a dramatic picture with the water droplets from a low angle as Sebastian passes by."

"This is taken in the Lance Stroll grandstand amongst the fans. By using a slow shutter speed, I've tried to bring a bit of colour to an otherwise grey day on Saturday.

"Despite the cold, rainy conditions, the fans came out in big numbers for the first Canadian GP qualifying day since 2019."
