Castroneves

 

Helio started in position 6 and actually finished 9th, only 1 lap behind.  This is an accomplishment since only 10 cars finished the race. 

This image is a much higher percentage shot than the images at the first location.  The cars are forced to slow down considerably going into turn 5 and then start uphill to turn 6.  It's fairly easy to capture them moving toward your position.  A photographer with a manual focus lens could pre focus and catch the cars moving thru the focus area.

The image was captured in front of turn 6 facing 5 (1-2 on  map).
