Re: Can I get some suggestions?

Hmm, back of an F1 car!

If there for a full 50-odd laps, then I'd want to experiment rather than snap a few heros. The shot posted is very sharp in the background, and as we're looking at the back of the drivers head, the background is taking control. Trying panning technique with varying exposure times could produce something worthwhile - from relatively fast to very slow (I've no idea how slow you could go, I'd keep increasing the times until the blur renders it pointless), as could experimenting with compositions. Turning your back on the action and photographing fans could also have its rewards - you can always watch the race on a replay when you get back home :~)
