Paul Crowder’s very well-researched feature documentary about Formula One racing, made alongside Ron Howard’s drama Rush and narrated by Michael Fassbender, has a strangely morbid undertow. The first part of the film follows the “travelling circus” of Grand Prix drivers in the 1960s and 1970s. They’re very dashing figures (likened by some to Spitfire pilots) who lead glamorous lives but stand a fair chance of being killed. Their cars are “mobile bombs” that grew faster and faster, even as the safety standards of the tracks stayed the same.
