D he photographers don't have it in today's Formula 1 light. The spaciousness of the modern race tracks with their meter-wide run-off zones - mostly covered with asphalt - spoil the motifs. Even on the old school slopes, the working conditions have become more difficult because some old spots are no longer allowed to be used for safety reasons. Or because, as in Hungary, huge billboards block the view of the racetrack.
Despite all of this, our photographers Wolfgang Wilhelm and Daniel Reinhard still take spectacular pictures with their experience. Because they have the right feeling for being in the right place at the right time. You have a good nose - like the soccer goal machine Gerd Müller used to do for the next goal.
See for yourself: We have loaded 82 spectacular and artistic photos from the 2016 Formula 1 season into our photo show. As a fitting end to an eventful year in which the star of Max Verstappen rose, Nico Rosberg defeated his eternal rival Lewis Hamilton in the world title fight and Fernando Alonso survived a horror crash with only two cracked ribs almost unscathed. And in which Azerbaijan celebrated a remarkable GP premiere, in Bahrain, Singapore and Abu Dhabi the sparks flew again at night and Monaco once again turned into a crash barrier jungle for the fastest circus in the world.
