During the sequence depicting the 1996 Australian Grand Prix at Melbourne, several shots from the 1994 Australian Grand Prix held at Adelaide are included, as well as other races from as late as 2006. There are also onboard shots of Michael Schumacher driving for both Ferrari and Benetton. The race is also implied to have been running for at least some time before Martin Brundle'a accident, which in reality occurred early in the first lap. See more »

Excellent perspective on those who are no longer among the living
22 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Some nitwit previously called this unwatchable. What a maroon. I thought it was very well done, better than "The Killer Years" and just about right up there with "Senna." I guess you have to be a fan and have the balls to man up and shed a tear or two for your heroes in the sport.

Nicely put together, very pertinent interviews with the players, and it even almost made me not want to poop on Ecclestone the way I normally want to.

Some footage I've never seen, a bunch of talk I never heard before from various stars and important folks in F1, and just plain a worthy use of leisure time.

Two racing fuel stained thumbs up, fo sho.
