Formula One has had quite a few movies emerge as of late—Senna, Rush, and now 1: Life on the Limit. I wrote about Senna in 2011, and you can see see my post here. I also saw and greatly enjoyed Rush, a dramatized version of the story of James Hunt and Niki Lauda and their famous rivalry. 1: Life on the Limit absolutely fits into the F1 fans’ movie collection, and is a must-see for anyone who enjoys the sport.

Here’s the trailer:

Watching Formula One nowadays is to see the great care taken in terms of safety for all involved – drivers, crew members, and spectators. However, in the earlier days of the sport, even into the 90s, the safety standards were pathetic at best. 1 addresses this topic head on, and it is hard to watch while multiple people die in the name of motorsport.

There are interviews with past and present F1 drivers, as well as other associated with the sport. It is definitely worth a watch.  The movie is now available on DVD and Blu-Ray here from Amazon.
