“If everything seems under control, you’re just not going fast enough.”
Since 1950 The FIA Formula One World Championship has been one of the premier sports in the world and is probably the pinnacle of motor racing. The reasons behind its allure are many – the tracks and glamorous locations, the sheer feat of engineering mixed with technology but most of all the thrill of speed.
I wanted to try and capture that feeling in this painting of a formula one car, an interpretation of a gleaming red Ferrari roaring past in a haze of other colours.
