quite entertaining for casuals
12 February 2018 | by vampy81See all my reviews

I follow the F1 racing scene casually. Meaning that i enjoy watching the races, but i am not deep into the material. So for me it was a quite entertaining look behind the scenes. I can understand that a die hard fan would be underwhelmed and give it a lower score.

The technology center in Woking - England, where the car is designed and built, is simply impressive and has a very clean look. I would work there, too :)

With only four episodes it is very easy to watch. If you liked the first one, then the rest is a nobrainer. I watched it in one sitting. I really appreciate, that it is NOT a PR Commercial from McLaren. You notice that they made a lot of mistakes during the build of the car and the executives adress them. You can feel the frustration of the drivers after the first tests on the track and the poor performance of the car.

If you're into sports documentaries give it a go!
