This is one I had not seen yet. I thought many of you would like it. It appears to focus on the 1973 F1 season. There is a lot of interesting footage. I don’t care much for the gruesome footage but it was the nature of the beast.

I loved this this quote,

“The Europeans have always been crazy about auto racing. The South Americans even crazier. The Americans are just crazy.”

That reminded me of GPL. I don’t have the passion many Europeans and South Americans do but that doesn’t mean I’m not crazy too. :)

Thanks for the link JMF. Unfortunately can't get tubitv.com in Europe because of EU laws.

There's a link here on Vimeo. Not sure but I think it's the same film? 🤔

My apologies guys. That's the same video. Tubi looks at little better at 480 versus 240.

Thanks Greg, a great film, fantastic screens of the drivers and races.
I had seen parts of the Cevert interview and most of the fatal accidents were live in TV then...

Pretentious, over-dramatised Hollywood bull ::crap::  as usual from America. They treat death as entertainment and try to get as much detail of the accidents as possible. If an accident isn't "dramatic" enough for them, they enlarge the shots and show them in slow motion so we can all enjoy watching someone die in greater detail. Nauseating. :yuk:

I liked it. There's also a torrent of the dvd around somewhere on PB. (I know because I watched it last year).
