Welcome to the eightieth 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 was the ‘return to victory’s race for Valentino Rossi, on the same track where a few years ago he won the 100th victory in the World Championship. Definitely, this is a special track for him. Aided by the logo of a sponsor who takes that of Superman, I was able to put them together in the same shot and give emphasis to the accomplishment of a great champion.
