Great documentary!
30 July 2015 | by leniscreenSee all my reviews

I've seen the film at the premiere in the cinema and later again on iTunes. It's clearly a great film and perfect documentary about a F1 racing legend Niki Lauda and the time when motor sport was killing people. I saw lots of Lauda footage absolutely for the first time ever, since normally all F1 documentaries use the same footage over and over again. Also the great interviews with Sir Jackie or Jochen Mass, or Hans Joachim Stuck are giving unheard insights of the time. The good thing is - you see Niki Laudas recovery from the fire accident, how it really was, not how it was shown in Rush. What I found also pretty cool was the part with Rosberg and Hamilton, which was especially showing a lot about the modern F1 technology and the big difference to the past. I can highly recommend this film to everyone.
