A lost opportunity
3 May 2021 | by nik-597-247017See all my reviews

Lost Nurburgring rushes pop up so thats great, downside it was presented by idiot know it all and failed F1 team manager Peter Windsor, who does F1 reporting in the USA but is regarded as a joke and a bit of a fraud over here.

His opening line on driver coach Jim Russell was 'well of course, Steve Mcqueen is an American, Jim Russell an American so naturally they got together".

Complete drivel.

I thought Jim was from Downham Market, Norfolk, England? I say that because I'm making a documentary with his SON.

Lots of nice graphics, some of which arrive unexpectedly, some good opportunity but too much incorrect B roll and a desperate rush at the end in an effort to drag out a conclusion.
