There can be only '1'

Formula One continues to hit the big screen

Sidepodcast: There can be only '1'

by Bassano

When I first heard of the F1 documentary '1', I must admit I thought it was clinging onto the coat tails of the much publicised Ron Howard pic, Rush. I'm happy to admit, I was wrong.It wasn't on my ever growing 'to watch' list but being F1, my interest was piqued. Whilst I was probably never going to rush to see it in the cinema, I was lucky enough to catch it on a recent flight - boy was I surprised!

SENNA comes to Netflix

Reviewing Ayrton Senna's story from a newer F1 fan's perspective

Sidepodcast: SENNA comes to Netflix

by Kai

As a fan of Formula One I have heard of the legend of Senna, and the rivalry of Senna and Prost, of course. I have seen replays of the accident that took his life, and theories as to why exactly he lost traction. But I did not know anything about the man. The documentary “Senna” opened up his racing life to me. Now I more fully feel the impact of his loss on this day, May 1, 17 years ago. I struggled with how to describe this experience today. How do I communicate the emotional impact that this film has had on me? I can’t really, but I’ll give you my impressions the best I can.
