The new Audi 6, the car and the iconic Yas Marina Formula One Circuit, the venue; together, a winning combination! Both the car and the track are equally impressive, have global appeal and can’t fail to impress with their dynamic exteriors and super smooth interiors.
The shoot itself was hot with the relentless temperatures hovering around the 45c mark but for a photographer who adores the outdoors, that’s all part of the job. The Yas Hotel was the backdrop; an architectural treasure itself that sits proudly inside the track and hosts the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix in November.
For boys who love their toys, this shoot was a dream not least because on the press days, I had the pleasure to work with my friend and fellow photographer Jorge Ferarri with whom it was a pleasure to share the track. I also managed to extend my knowledge of Formula One jargon with words once alien to me such as understeer, oversteer, apex, pit-lanes, g-force … the icing on the cake!
