Pit stop by markstewart Pit stop by markstewart
Gouache on illustration board.
Reference used was a photo by Darren Heath [link] and was taken during his only pit stop during the race. copyright Darren Heath
Damon Hill, Hungary 1997 ... so close. He became world champion in 96 and went to a new smaller team in 97. Nobody gave him a chance but he had Bridgstone tyres which out performed everyone else. He came in second to Jacque Villeneuve who went on to win the championship.

I was there - the only F-1 race I attended in person. And Hill making a miracle and almost winning that race was the best present I could get. I should dedicate a painting to this wonderful day too. Thanks for reminding!

Impeccably done piece. Your gallery is finite in the realm of photorealism. Thanks for sharing...and selecting one of my pieces ("Denzel Washington") as a "favourite".
