Formula One sports photographer Rainer Schlegelmilch has had behind-the-scenes access to F1 races for over 50 years, and the Getty Images Gallery is to profile his work in its "Freeze The Speed" exhibition.

Schlegelmilch's portfolio stretches back to 1962 and features black and white stills from Le Mans and Monte Carlo right up to present-day split-second scenes from Shanghai and beyond.

Snapshots of owners, drivers, mechanics, and entourages feature in the exhibit, and visitors will be able to see how motor racing and photographic technology have evolved side by side throughout the 50-year period.

With the 2014 Formula One World Championship due to start on March 16, Getty's gallery exhibit is primed to capitalize on pre-season buzz, opening February 6 and running until March 1 at its Oxford Circus location in London, England.
