Did You Know?

The real Niki Lauda claims the movie was entirely accurate. However, the film took creative liberties of the James Hunt and Lauda rivalry.See more »
Errors in geography: When Niki Lauda and James Hunt are racing at the Nurburgring, both cars go into the pits to change to dry weather tyres. Before Lauda leaves the pits, Hunt is shown driving around the renowned Carousel corner before Lauda had left the pits. This corner is is around 2 thirds of the way through the circuit, and would be approximately 5 minutes away given the conditions.See more »
[first lines]
Niki Lauda:Twenty five drivers start every season in Formula One, and each year two of us die. What kind of person does a job like this? Not normal men, for sure. Rebels, lunatics, dreamers. People who are that desperate to make a mark, and are prepared to die trying. My name is Niki Lauda, and racing people know me for two things. The first is my rivalry with him.
[James Hunt]
Niki Lauda:I don't know why it became such a big thing. We were just drivers busting each other's balls. To me this is perfectly normal, but other people saw in differently. That whatever it was between us went deeper. The other thing I'm remembered for is what happened on 1st August 1976, when I was chasing him like an asshole...

Excellent, 6 September 2013

What a breath of fresh air... A brilliant film in every respect. I was lucky enough to this movie at a special preview and I cant tell you how great a film this is... At first you think its about racing cars, but its not it really does give you an insight into the human condition...

The rivalry between Hunt and Lauder is just played brilliantly... The race sequences are superb, really taking you back to the 70s... The heyday of this awesome sport. It shows the end of an era where the gentlemen drivers begin to give way to professional sportsmen and the end (in my opinion) of the excitement of the sport. It shows what a pale reflection today's F1 is of this once great sport, and what great characters we have lost...

A real must see movie
