19 March 2014 – Especially for lovers of motorsport photography, GPUpdate.net is this season running a feature series entitled Story behind the shot.

Australian Grand Prix: The Class of 2014
Mark Sutton: "I really like this image, as its not all about the drivers. I think it's great to show the amount of Media, Press & TV crews that attend Formula 1 races; this image shows both. I was lucky to get in a position in the start tower on the main straight. There are about 250 permanent F1 Media attending all 19 races in 2014."
