At 10 a.m. sharp, they started to emerge: brilliantly-colored and immaculately detailed open-wheeled Formula One race cars. Unlike past years, we witnessed them drive by without the protection of ear-plugs; new rules for the 2014 season had drastically altered the nature of the sound F-1 cars make. The insanely-loud high-pitched scream of past years was replaced with a low-frequency, lower-volume throaty rasp. Much easier on the ears, but perhaps a bit less exciting-sounding.

Although I had not been following F-1 closely in general over the last few years, I had made an effort to come up to speed in the months before the Canadian Grand Prix. I know knew about the radical new rule changes, including all of the complicated and fancy hybrid and energy-recovery systems. I also knew about how the Mercedes team had managed to execute ahead of everyone else, and were now dominating the field, sitting at 1-2 in the constructors' and drivers' point standings.

Although it was very nice to see the cars of the weekend's pinnacle series out and about, it was still only a practice session. So, there was nothing super exciting to watch. I spent my time experimenting with both different photographic vantage points on and near the stands, as well as fiddling about with the 100-400mm lens I had purpose-rented for the weekend.
