Ferrari: Race to Immortality
Influential director Daryl Goodrich brings the golden era of Ferrari’s F1 dominance to life with this slick new documentary.
Enzo Ferrari’s management style involved putting the maximum pressure on his drivers to perform.
Unfortunately in the 1950s, a time of lax safety standards and relatively primitive cars racing mostly on road circuits, getting things wrong under pressure could lead to fatal consequences.

This is the story of the loves and triumphs, losses and tragedies of a golden generation of Formula One drivers - the last flourishing of the playboy gentleman racers.
F1 'How it Was' takes you to the centre of iconic moments, with insight from the men who made them happen. What was their motivation? How did they make the difference?
