    Good film. Probably better than whichever Senna film I saw.

    Great film! I have only been an F1 fan for the last 6 or 7 years, so all the history was great to learn. Amazing that there were not even helmets in the 1950s. No aero until about 1969. The safety advancements in the last 20 years are incredible. The non-HD quality of the video did not bother me at all. It seemed period-correct.

    BTW, right after the opening credits, there is a brief in-car scene from Sonoma Raceway / Sears Point. Was there ever an F1 race there?

    Richard,

    Judging by the quality of the video, I assume the Sears footage came from one of the many vintage events they have there where they get a ton of period F1 cars.

    The film certainly drives home the evolution of safety in F1 (and by proxy, really, all motor racing).

    If you haven't seen the movie Grand Prix it is definitely worth it; while fictional, there are a lot of real cars and footage in there, as well as a large number of drivers of the era.

    Something else worth watching is Senna with the director's/producer commentary. There is a ton more story -- both as to how the film was made, as well as other additional background stories that didn't make the final cut in the 100 minute film.

    Steve

    There is a cool film "Fifty years of F1 on board". It had a great scene of Fangio and the 6 wheel Tyrell and others in the cockpit. Most of the shots are from F1 practice but different views that we get from today's on Board F1 cameras.
