Focusing on the career and family of its legendary founder Sir Frank Williams, the British sports documentary tells the extraordinary story of the Williams Formula 1 team, from its inception to the present day.
Have watched every single Formula 1 race since mid-1991, I think. Went to several races (when they were louder, V12/V10 era, rather going to Le Mans with the current cars for live action). Every year after Häkkinen quit it got harder for me to justify why I even bother.
4 episodes in right now - this series has a chance to change that!!
I was sometimes wondering how much good a media company's ownership of F1 could do for a sport when they were helplessly talking "Twitter", but now I sense there might be potential.
When all you get from F1 is corporate PR, little go kart boys being streamlined for TV spots, DRS and catering, here is a bit of actual behind-the-scenes of F1. Sure, this is sanitized too, but it is so much more honest than the usual, it is such a breather.
Please F1, be even braver with season 2019! Hope Ferrari and Mercedes join the party with season 2019 (they opted out of this so far): Merc, if McLaren can get the sticks out of their behinds, you can too!
This series has the potential to become an annual tradition to kick off pre-season ... and remember why you became a fan in the first place.
