Weekend of a Champion DVD - Description

In 1971 Roman Polanski turned his lens on the glamorous and dangerous world of Formula One and on Jackie Stewart in particular.

Weekend of a Champion follows Stewart as he tries to win the most glamorous and dangerous Grand Prix of them all: Monaco.

Superbly filmed (as you would expect) and with access that film crews today would die for, this - along with 'If you're not winning... you're not trying' - is the ultimate record of the DFV era of British dominance.

Amongst the highlights for F1 fans is the onboard camera work from Stewart's Tyrell around a very wet Monaco circuit.

Also present are other stars of the scene including Francois Cevert, who we see receiving the Stewart knowledge, Graham Hill, Jean-Pierre Beltoise and some "veterans" including Stirling Moss.

Polanski's film shows a vanished world where everything was at once more relaxed and far more highly charged than today's F1.

There's a remarkable post-script to the original film where Jackie Stewart and Roman Polanski meet again to discuss the film and the sport.
