Perfect precursor to the 2019 F1 season
10 March 2019 | by armandoxSee all my reviews

In the day and age of social media everybody is a 'backseat driver' and wannabe critic, wether positive or negative. So I'm not going to say much in-depth about this mini-documentary.

I loved the editing, use of material and insight not normally given into F1. Anyone who likes F1 to a certain extend and is geared up towards the 2019 season will most likely enjoy this as a primer. Anyone who isn't into F1 yet, but has a slight interest should get a good grasp of all the politics, mindgames et al that go on behind the scenes aswell.

Liberty Media and Netflix, please do this every year and never mind the critics!

10/10 well deserved from me
