F1 Documentaries

Post by JoostLamers » 23 Aug 2012, 11:18

I want to watch more documentaries about F1. Of course I have seen the Senna documentary, but I want to see more like this one. Not specifically about drivers, but also about seasons. That's doesn't really matter. Anyone?

How about Ecclestone's Formula? It's really good. You can find it here.

I like the ones what follow teams / drivers around. There are some good ones from the 90s. There's one that follows Benetton's 1997 season, one that follows Eddie Jordan in 1998 I think and an Eddie Irvine one from 1999 called something like 'Life in the Fast Lane'. Particularly interesting bit at the end where he talks about moving to Jaguar. Lets just say it didn't work out how he hoped. :p

Going to keep my eye on this thread, as I'm interested as well.

Yeah, I loved the ones about turbo engines as well as the famous "Gentlemen, lift your skirts."
I hope that documentaries like those are still being made today as they are really fascinating.

By seeing the documentary or from of its history of F1, you can see win is for performance consistent person but sometimes this thing not really matters. As there are winners who don't be in winning position but at the end of race, World see's the victory is there's.

The Hunt Lauda documentary on BBC 2 last night was excellent. Some interesting new footage in there, I liked the shot of Lauda watching track-side at Fuji which I'd never seen before. Also some great interviews with the Ferrari and McLaren team managers of the time. Time has clearly not softened their feelings towards one another or that season. McLaren really were badly shafted by Ferrari's politicking that year, Monza being particularly ridiculous. Makes all the modern politics seem tame.

Am sure someone will post it for those outside the UK!

I felt sorry for McLaren a little bit. Ferrari knows exactly how to win off the track!
