Welcome to the 12th appointment with the column ‘Mirco Lazzari portrays MotoGP’. For all 19 races of 2014 season, we will follow the MotoGP championship through the lens of Mirco Lazzari, master of sports photography and MotoGP official photographer.
Along with him and his tutorials, we will discover the secrets of the sports image and the ‘behind the scenes’ of the most exciting two wheels Championship of the world.
It’s only been few hours since the GP finished, the press room was emptying quickly and we were tired after so much work on laptops to send our MotoGP pictures. I got up and went out to take a breath into the fresh air … and this was exactly the view!
