Those are T-wings...providing more downforce (they are not antennae). Those and the shark fin are banned for next year.

Nice shots,
I'm planning on going one day.
Do they let you move around to different locations on practice (Friday) and qualifying (Saturday) day?

Thanks.
They don't let you into grandstands unless you have a ticket for that stand even on Friday and Saturday. Even on Friday the stands were packed as this race is well attended. On all 3 days you can move around outside of the grandstands as much as you want. You can buy GA ticket for the weekend and stay out of the grandstands but there aren't many places to get a clear view for photos but lots of places to watch through fencing at track level. Most of these shots were taken in the one GA area where you sort of get a view near the hairpin.

They do sell a limited number of Trio Tickets (which is what I had). That gives you a ticket to a different grandstand on each day. I had a Silver level Trio so was at hairpin on Friday, Pitlane (GS 1) on Saturday and at Senna Corner for the race on Sunday. I didn't shoot any shots of the race and instead just enjoyed it. Senna grandstand and the hairpin are both good vantage points to shoot from. Grandstand 1 across from the pitlane is only useful for getting some pictures of pitstops and people. You can't get a clear shot of the cards going past even at the highest row of seats because of all the fencing.
