Abu Dhabi GP 2011, for one brief moment, Massa was leading Alonso. Unfortunately, the race had not yet started. This is was taken as the cars were being driven around the track from the pits to the starting grid. I chose this shot as no one else has a photo with more than one car in it. Taken from the grandstand seats at the hairpin turn. If you ever get to the Yas Marina circuit, these are the best seats in the house. Sharp left/right S curve leading into the hairpin, and you can wander around for the best shot.
