HOW IT WAS

F1 Racing - - ESSENTIALS -

In ad­di­tion to the usual an­nual sea­son-re­view discs, FOM have put to­gether this 90-minute bonus disc, which fea­tures high­lights from their many thou­sands of hours of ar­chive For­mula 1 footage.

Rather than sim­ply dish­ing out a wide range of vin­tage ma­te­rial, they have fo­cused on ten clas­sic grands prix (be­tween 1984 and 2010) and have asked the pro­tag­o­nists to look back and re­call those events.

Johnny Her­bert de­scribes the emo­tions of that dra­matic Nür­bur­gring win for Ste­wart in 1999; Jean Alesi re­calls his duel with Ayr­ton Senna on the streets of Phoenix in 1990; and Jen­son But­ton re­lives his ex­tra­or­di­nary come­back drive at the 2010 Cana­dian Grand Prix.

This is great to dip into when you’re starved of F1 ac­tion and we’d like to see more of these come out of F1’s vaults – par­tic­u­larly footage that has never been seen.
