Factual errors: 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 »

An absolute gem for all petrolheads, 13 October 2013
Author: pbogdanovic from Serbia and Montenegro

This is the first time I write a review for any movie, showing how much I did appreciate this documentary. It is excellent in portraying the era of Formula 1 in the 60s, 70s and early 80s, not from a technical, but rather from a human perspective.

It gives great insight into lives of former champions, some dead, some still alive, while at the same time narrating advances in both thinking and technology which enabled Formula 1 to become much safer nowadays.

I thoroughly enjoyed all the original footage, as well as the excellent soundtrack and editing which boost the atmosphere of the whole movie. Excellent job and a must see for any Formula 1 fan.
