Photographer’s insight: The race has just ended and has declared the new World Champion: Marc Marquez. His fans who filled in a whole section of the ring around the Valencia circuit, were celebrating the victory of their rider. Their waving red flags were so impressive and allowed me to take this photo. I think it can tell us the joy and love of the fans for Marquez.
