Onboard footage of Ayrton Senna's McLaren at Monaco is wrongly attributed to the 1989 Grand Prix. Commonly mistaken for footage from 1988 or 1989, no onboard cameras were placed on either McLaren at Monaco until the 1990 Grand Prix when the popular onboard footage seen in the film was actually recorded.

Extremely boring
20 September 2016 | by (Oregon) – See all my reviews

I know a little about Formula 1, but I like racing (MotoGP in particular). This film is well produced, considering they're working largely with archive footage from old television broadcasts. The interspersed interviews with prominent figures are fairly interesting, but it never drew me in.

This strikes me as a decent documentary for people who are already fans of Formula 1, but if you're just a fan of racing in general, then it's just really not very interesting. For example, Senna's death is covered in perhaps two minutes, and you feel no real connection with it at all. Senna was probably the most beloved racer in F-1 history, yet it's just sort of casually mentioned how much impact his death had on fans.
