Formula 1 is the aesthete’s ultimate sport: an intoxicating cocktail of speed, spectacle, competition and power, at the heart of which are the thoroughbred racing machines – exquisite manifestations of form following function, driven at dizzying speeds by the quickest-of-the-quick, the best racing drivers on the planet. Darren Heath has been photographing Formula 1 for over 25 years. For 21 of these years he has worked freelance, and this has given him a unique perspective on the complex and exciting world of Formula 1. Darren Heath’s photography in Art Of The Race V17 encapsulates the very essence of the speed, noise, excitement and colour of Formula 1 racing, whilst also highlighting the key moments of each race as the season unfolds, culminating in Lewis Hamilton winning his 4th world championship.
