Excerpt from the article below:
'F1 often uses CGI to add in sponsor logos and messages on the track, but this is the first time such an object has – one that moves – has been added to a live broadcast.'

F1 site has admitted it was a virtual bird, if you watch it on the video you can see that one wing disappears as it clips the corner of the circuit. Mystery solved!

I want to see the T-Rex eating Alonso next time.
Before or after his engine packs up? :D

I can't remember when any CGI has been shown on track during F1. Does anybody remember examples of this?

Not on track, however, there was a spider running along the handrail at Suzuka during the Takuma Sato interviews!

Did anyone else notice this during the race? Surely had me scratching my head:


I never noticed but then again I probably spend half of the time looking at the timing screen.

They use CGI, or more accurately AR I suppose (augmented reality), a fair bit these days. You tend to see it on the warm-up lap displaying information, and sometimes advertising. I think they had a massive CG ad on the big wheel at Singapore as I recall. I guess F1 is fairly well suited to it as fixed camera positions make it relatively easy to do.

Good thing it wasn't real, can you imagine bearing down on the corner and seeing the shadow of a huge bird of prey sweeping across the track! Now that might make anyone exceed track limits. :uhoh: x(
