    Although with another team, he's still my fav but I wondered if he still has that drive in him. Nevertheless, I can't wait for the F1 season to start.

    ic .. thanks for the info...
    now i am thinking to get the grandstand or just the premier walkabout?
    last year i was at the bay grandstand... but not much i could capture, as not much items to take ... basically only the cars. no artist or vvip people..

    1-day tickets will usually be open for sale only after the early bird period.

    Depends. Wide for crowd shots + the atmosphere around. Tele any thing from 200mm onwards for close-up of drivers, stars and of cos the F1 cars.

    For flexibility plus low cost if you wanna buy 1 lens will be the tamron 18-270 VC or the 18-200 variants of each individual camera brand makers. Of cos, you nid to pump up ur ISO as these lenses are not on constant aperture.

    I think the 70-200mm f/2.8 IS/VR has the versatility. Add a TC for extra reach.

    Just rent it for F1. 28-80 won't give you the reach needed for close ups.

    Probably good enough for the people/atmosphere shots but won't be long enough for the car shots.

    Not that it's impossible but you probably won't like it.

    55-250, near the 250 end: (resized, uncropped - on 500D)

    So are you going to shoot RB5 RB6 again this year?

    RB6 imo is still the nicest car on this year grid Adrian Newy is really a talented designer.

    Actually I kindda dig the Virgin car

    Ferrari has a little too much white this year, might end up being a bit.. bleh

    MercGP and McLaren may be a pain to shoot, silver always throws my focus off.

    I always had problems shooting the RBs and TRs. Cam keeps focus-finding.

    Renault might be interesting, all bumblebee and everything. I managed to get a great Alonso shot last year that's A2 printed and hanging in my room

    Lotus with its trademark green/black may be a challenge also.

    Still deciding on a GS seat or a Premium walkabout...... Turns 1-3 look interesting to shoot

    Turn 1 -3 will be nice, cos the cars will slow down for the turns. But the price is way high, above $1k. ! ? For me, I think I shall just get the walkabout tickets, then go rent a 55 - 250 lens. Anyone know where to rent lens ? care to share ?

    Bro, Mr Bernie Ecclestone owns the rights of the images (still and moving pictures) of the Formula 1 cars. Even if you did not shoot them from within the circuit park, by selling the pictures of the cars you took from outside the circuit park, you are still not allowed to sell them commercially. Only for your own private use. He has even sold the rights of the sound of the cars to Sony. That is why even some users have uploaded their video footage to youtube etc and they have been taken down.

    Logos, trademarks of the Formula 1, F1, FIA, etc also protected. Also can't paste as your own watermark, website logo, fansite logo, etc.
