Romain Grosjean, at the Russian Grand Prix.

Sochi Autodrom offers some impressive backdrops as we take a look through our favorite captures from the Russian Grand Prix weekend.

This week, Andy Hone who is Haas F1's official photographer, has chosen this well-contrasted shot of Romain passing under a bridge during Saturday's FP1 session, as his no.1 shot.

Andy's Take: "Sochi Park isn’t exactly a photographer's dream. A lot of the corners are the same and it’s quite flat, nevertheless the current cars look fantastic and when the light is good, you can always make something happen.

"This year the weather was fantastic here and offered great light for a variety of shots. This image takes advantage of the shade, ironically, and the contrast between the sun and the shadows.

"By exposing in the shadows the highlights become blown out and white, giving the background. It’s something normally possible to do in Suzuka but as we aren’t going there (unfortunately) this year, I thought it would be nice to get a Russian version. I like how simple, yet graphic it is and looks great with our livery."

Twists and turns: Kevin passes through the third sector in Qualifying, with the Sochi theme park and almost Disney-like Bogatyr Castle Hotel providing the backdrop.

Flying start: After getting caught up in Mugello, luck was on our side in Sochi as Romain and Kevin picked their way through the lap one chaos and profited massively from the early collisions. Romain made up six positions and Kevin made up eight, as they climbed to tenth and ninth respectively on the first lap.
